A stunning stone Quercynoise Manor house packed with original features!, Lot, Occitanie
Understated charm. Original features. Fabulous views. Buckets of potential!
Tucked quietly into the rolling countryside of the Dordogne Valley, close to some of the region's most beautiful villages, stands this traditional stone quercynoise manor house. If you are looking for charm, authenticity, original features and potential this house has it all.
Arriving at the property is a delight; the large original bread oven and porch provides the gateway to substantial wooden gates. With the gates closed you see little of the house but once you cross through you can not miss the charm of the large property.
The property, with original "ardoise de Correze" roof, offers five bedrooms, several large living areas, a fitted kitchen and utility room, a dining room with an original "souillarde" - a traditional quercy open kitchen rarely found intact, and an enormous games room. Wooden beams, original floors, oak woodwork, large fireplace and exposed stone is the constant theme throughout the house.
Standing in an L shape the property also offers a large barn with charming original animal mangers, a stone pigeonnier, attic rooms and wood store. The unusually large bread oven is in full working order, adding functionality to a stunning character feature. The barn would lend itself to conversion into additional accommodation (subject to permissions) and the rooms above the bread oven could also be incorporated into the main house.
The property looks out across open countryside and the famous Saint Jacques de Compostelle walking route runs to the side of the property. A swimming pool sits at the end of the garden and enjoys a south facing position.
The property sits at the edge of a quiet hamlet with views across stunning open countryside. Ideally positioned amongst some of the Dordogne's famous medieval villages but with good access to the motorway and airports, the house is an ideal option for a holiday home or main residence.
