Located on a peaceful lane in the highly sought-after golden triangle between Eymet and Bergerac, this superb stone property offers beautiful, characterful living spaces, a fab terrace, room for a pool and rural views, but is only a short drive to all amenities and only 15 minutes from Bergerac itself.
Boasting four bedrooms and two bathrooms, two of which and one bathroom are on the ground floor, at the opposite end of the property to the other two bedrooms and bathroom, this property lends itself perfectly into being divided into a 2-bed gite with its own entrance and a 2-bed Owner’s accommodation. It would not take much investment to do this. Or, it could be used for a couple to live in with the option of separate bedroom accommodation for visiting family and friends. The property oozes character in the main living spaces and has been modernised with plasterboard walls elsewhere. It is likely that the original stonework still exists under some of the plasterboard so there is potential to restore some character to other parts of the property if desired. There is considerable scope to improve the kitchen as desired and create your dream kitchen!
In summary, this is a highly desirable stone property in a sought-after location. Book your viewing now to avoid disappointment!
ACCOMMODATION – GROUND FLOOR
The layout of the accommodation – 2 bedrooms & bathroom on ground floor at one end of the property and 2 bedrooms & a bathroom on first floor at the other end of the property with a separate entrance hall and external door means the accommodation could be easily divided up, with the creation of an attached letting unit with its own entrance, or equally, it would be ideal for extended families or visitors, offering an excellent amount of privacy for both parties.

Entrance Hall – 3.7x2m (7m2)

Through doorway, up 2 steps into:
Dining Room – 5.8x5.6m (32m2)
Stunning, large dual aspect room, with large, wide opening up to the Living room, resulting in a superb interconnected space. Exposed stonework juxtaposed with plastered walls and original beams on ceiling. There is a lovely, arched, feature aperture between the two parts of the room with an original stone sink on the Living room side. This is a fabulous entertaining space for friends and family. Room for very large dining table. Reversible AC unit on wall. Window to front of property and side of property.
Up 2 small steps into:
Living Room – 5x6m (30m2)
Another large, dual aspect room, with natural light flooding in through the French doors. As you walk into this room, you are instantly greeted by the wonderful, wow-factor open fireplace, the heart of this home. The pretty briquette chimney and substantial wooden mantelpiece act as the perfect framework for the large, glowing hearth below. Warmth and coziness guaranteed during the cooler months! An envy-inducing feature of this property! Further period features such as the exposed original beams on the ceiling and the exposed, repointed stonework on the walls mean that this living space could be straight off the pages of a glossy French Country homes interiors magazine. Window to front of property and sliding French doors opening onto covered terrace.
Up steps into:
Kitchen – 5.5x4.45m (25m2)
Tiled floor. Superb, double Belfast sink. Variety of free-standing appliances & a dresser. The kitchen needs upgraging, but as it stands, it is a large, light space with direct access to the terrace too. A blank canvas upon which to make your own mark and create the kitchen of your dreams!
From Kitchen, up 3 steps into:
Two-storey building adjoining the barn. This part of the property has its own parking area, lovely wrought iron gates for access to the rear garden, an external door, entrance hall and could easily be converted to gite-type accommodation. Or, it could be used for visitors.
Second Entrance hall – 4x2m (8m2)
Please note, the current staircase off this entrance hall to the first floor bedrooms & bathroom is quite steep with low headroom. It is almost like going up through a loft hatch. It would need some modifications if it was to be used as anything other than occasional bedrooms for visitors. However, it would not require too much investment to convert it into a self-contained letting unit. You would just need to convert the barn room on the ground floor to a kitchen/living room.
The structure is in place, just internal conversion required.
Wooden flooring throughout.
Landing – 1.4x2.2.m (3m2)

Adjoining lean-to storage shed next to Barn room (accessed externally from either end). Ideal place for wood storage.
Garden Room – 4x3m (12m2)
Accessed from terrace through door near to kitchen door. Tiled floor, sink in corner. This room is crying out to be converted into a summer kitchen with direct access to the terrace or indeed a swimming pool changing/shower room if a pool is added.
The garden is laid mostly to lawn with some mature trees & shrubs offering patches of natural shade. It slopes down away from the rear terrace to the bordering fields with fantastic views across the open countryside to woodland beyond as well as across to a majestic chateau. There is a fully fenced area around the house itself – totaling around 2000m2. The remainder of the land extends out beyond the parking area. It is already cordoned off and would be ideal grazing for a pony or other animals.
Large parking area to side of property – laid to gravel and separated from garden by low stone wall and pretty arched gateway. Room to park a dozen cars.
Additional parking at other end of property infront of two-storey part. Double gateway leading to garden.
Large tiled terrace – covered in part. This offers much-needed shade for the scorching summer months. This is a fantastic addition to the property and is the area you will spend most of the time from Easter to October. There is ample room for a pool to be added at the edge of the terrace.
Storage shed & chicken shed
A secure storage shed & chicken shed is located beyond the attached lean-to barn.
