One for the discerning buyer seeking a haven of peace and tranquility, this prestige property offers outstanding views across the beautiful Dronne Valley.
Set in a small hamlet with just two other houses, the property consists of a main residence with a self contained guest annexe, both linked by an amazing entertaining room opening out onto a covered terrace, all set in 5 acres of grounds with a heated infinity pool with jacuzzi.
The property was renovated from a ruined stone farmhouse and barn in 2004 with the objective of creating a modern, contemporary home whilst retaining the charm and character of the original property. The result is a great success with features such as exposed stone walls and heavy wooden beams blending perfectly with modern materials and conveniences such as under floor heating and electric window shutters.
Leading off from the Entrance Hall in the main house is a Lounge with a wood burning stove with two sets of French Doors looking out over the gardens and the views beyond. There is also a delightful Music Room with walls lined with bookshelves.
The master bedroom suite is also on the ground floor and has both a walk-in wardrobe and an ensuite shower room. A further ensuite bedroom is located on the first floor.
The Kitchen in the main house is a contemporary styled, high quality Italian fitted kitchen with Gas oven, gas hob set beneath an extractor canopy, dishwasher and American style Fridge Freezer. It has one door leading into the garden and then double doors leading through to the magnificent Entertaining Room which links the main house to the Annexe. This spectacular room has a full height ceiling to enhance the feeling of space and opens out onto a large, covered terrace to the rear.
The guest annexe is currently arranged to provide a large Library and Study, a fitted kitchen, a first floor Lounge, two double Bedrooms and a Family Bathroom. Also in the annexe is a superb, easily accessed and superbly equipped Wine Cave, a double Garage with remotely operated doors and a boiler room containing both the gas central heating boiler and the water softening plant.
There is a rose garden to the front of the house whilst the private rear gardens cover 1.5 acres and offer sweeping lawns with mature trees and flower beds along with a fish pond. The 10m by 6m infinity pool is heated and has a salt-water treatment system and jacuzzi. This is the place to relax and look out over the wonderful views to the south and west.
The remaining land requires no maintenance as it is let out to a local farmer.
The property sits on the boundary of the beautiful countryside of the Parc Naturel Régional Périgord-Limousin and is just 10 minutes drive from the delightful town of Brantôme, the so called Venice of the Perigord, with its famous Friday market. It is just 40 minutes from the medieval city of Perigueux whilst the international airport at Limoges can be reached in around 60 minutes.
