A stone built farmhouse and attached barn have been caringly renovated by the present owners, with the support of skilled artisans, to create this comfortable and adaptable home. Set on a gentle slope, in the valley of the River Dropt, between the villages of Serres et Montguyard and Queyssel, the location provides easy access by road to Bergerac and its airport (25 mins) and the bastide town of Eymet (7 mins).
Within the original stone walls, the ground floor of 220 sq. Metres has gas-fired central heating and the first floor of 60 sq. Metres (the old hay loft) has the benefit of reversible air-conditioning and electric heating. The roof is fully insulated and with the added benefit of 2 wood burners the temperature in the house can be effectively controlled, whatever the weather. All doors and windows are double-glazed and those on the ground floor have shutters. The property is protected by an alarm system, which can be controlled remotely through a Smartphone.
The rooms on the ground floor are at present: a large living and dining room (grand séjour), a lounge (salon), a fully fitted kitchen/diner (cuisine), a utility room (buanderie), an en-suite bedroom (chambre d'amis), 2 further bedrooms (chambres) served by a family bathroom (salle de bain) and store/pool room (cave). On the first floor there is another en-suite bedroom (chambre
principale), a dressing area and a study (bureau), which could be used as a fifth bedroom.
Attached to the house there are two covered terraces and a further terrace with a pergola. Steps running along the full length of one of these terraces provide access to the swimming pool (10x5 metres) within its own encompassing terrace.
The house is complemented by a landscaped garden, with a variety of shrubs and flowers and mature trees, which provide gently shaded areas of grass. The plot extends to 1,760 square metres with parking for three cars on hard standing, one of which is under a carport. A garden shed, set in amongst the shrubbery, provides over 7 square metres of storage for garden tools and machinery.
About The Area
The hamlet of Moulin Neuf is at the eastern end of the Serres et Montguyard commune and comprises 10 owner occupied homes, except for the mill itself, which is a holiday home. It is therefore a quiet but secure neighbourhood approximately 1.5km from the centre of the village. Whilst Serres et Montguyard only has a village hall and the mayor's office, there is a full range of shops and other amenities at Lauzun 4km and Eymet 6km. The riverside location and surrounding farmland and woods offer rambling opportunities, whilst the quiet lanes are ideal for cycling.
