Exclusive to Allez-Français with a substantial price reduction.
It is very rare to find a spacious, modern property in rural France built to such exacting standards as this superb six bedroomed villa. Occupying a prominent position on the edge of a charming village set in the beautiful Perigord Vert, this single storey property was constructed by the current owner in 2006 and demonstrates their commitment to design excellence based on their international experience.

Set in grounds of 8,000m, this property has been meticulously maintained and therefore requires no further immediate investment. Combined with extensive insulation and efficient heating systems, the property has attained a superb B rating when assessed for energy usage.
The total living space of 344m is divided between two wings linked by a large open plan living area. The light and airy living area consists of a lounge-cum-dining room along with a well equipped kitchen, an area that is ideal for entertaining. The fitted kitchen has a good range of floor and wall mounted storage cupboards, a Bosch double oven/microwave, a 5-ring ceramic hob, a fridge-freezer, a dishwasher and a washing machine.
The east wing leads off from the main entrance hall. It houses two double bedrooms, both with French windows, a large bathroom, a separate W.C. And a laundry room to the rear of the integrated garage. Given the layout and the integrated services, this wing has the potential to be converted into a self-contained, two bedroomed annex.
The west wing has four bedrooms, two of which have en-suite bathrooms, and a large bathroom. All of the bathrooms are equipped with wash-hand basins, Wc and shower cubicles. The two main bathrooms also have large bathtubs.
Entrance to the property is via large double gates from a quiet country lane. Half of the property's well-tended land lies behind it, comprising of meadow lined with various fruit trees along the border and a solidly constructed garden shed of 18m.
A 10m x 4m west facing swimming pool sits in a secluded spot to the rear of the house and is surrounded by decking. An automated maintenance system monitors and adjusts the chlorine and ph levels and can be used to heat the pool during cooler periods.
The extensive decking continues to the front of the property where the remaining land slopes gently downwards, offering beautiful views over the village below. A large covered terrace area is the ideal spot to enjoy breakfast in the morning sunshine or lunch in the shade
Whilst set in tranquil countryside, it is only 10 minutes drive to the bustling market town of Nontron and 15 minutes to the picturesque town of Brantome, known as the 'Venice of France'. It is well located for transport links being less than an hour from the international airport in Limoges and the Tgv rail link in Angouleme.
Whilst this property would provide a sumptuous permanent home, it could also be utilised as a holiday home with accommodation for a large or extended family. The vendor has previously let the property as a luxury holiday villa sleeping 12 at a high season rent of €1,850 per week.
