Detached house in peaceful surroundings - close to a village with good amenities., Dordogne, Nouvelle Aquitaine
This is a spacious, attractive detached 4 bedroom home surrounded by its own garden and fields, and hidden by its private driveway. The previous owners were horticulturists,so there are some unusual plants and trees to enjoy, and the garden is quite charming. The property is situated on a small lane being one of only 2 houses there, so it enjoys a good level of privacy and is not overlooked. It has its own fully registered bio apple orchard as well! So despite the peaceful location, it is less than a km walk to the supermarket and the village lies only 1.5 km away. The village has various amenities - a bank, post office, baker, chemist, hairdresser, restaurant/ bar, florist, as well as an excellent brand new medical centre. Many good sized touristic towns with amenities surround the village too eg Excideuil , Saint Yrieix la Perche and Perigueux (Dordogne's principal town) which is only 45 mins drive away.
There is a popular large lake with great nature walks and its own beach less than 10km away.
The house is centrally heated with gas and fully double glazed with a very good energy rating. There is a wood burning stove in the living room fireplace. All the living accommodation including 4 bedrooms are at ground floor level.
Upstairs is a huge loft, already having a chestnut floor which could easily be converted into 6 good sized rooms (subject to necessary permissions). The attic has French doors leading onto a large balcony which overlooks the garden, so lots of potential for more space upstairs. It has potential to be used as a "Bed and Breakfast" if this space was developed.
The house was built by a carpenter, so there are lovely exposed oak beams in every room, and some very nice wood floors and general carpentry throughout. Although the house has the look of a Perigourdine style of house, it was built in 1999, so it has the look of an older house, but the advantage of the energy efficiency of a newer one.
Outside is an open hangar and plenty of places for parking. The open fields are great for keeping animals (fields represent 16,470m of all of the land (1.6 hectares). These are currently looked after by a local farmer if you are concerned the land may be more than you want. A lovely house with a lot of potential still. See the video below !
