Situated on a peaceful country lane, yet only 5 minutes drive from a bustling market town with all amenities, this beautiful property enjoys the best of both Worlds.
The accommodation comprises a beautiful main farmhouse with a very large kitchen/dining/living room and original features such as beautiful floor tiles and a wonderful open fireplace. There is currently one bedroom and bathroom in this part of the property. There is a full-size loft space on the first floor that is yet to be converted. Leading off this building is a very large adjoining barn which has been fully converted and offers a further two bedrooms, a 'Jack-and-Jill' bathroom and a very large central room, 70m2, with a cathedral ceiling and exposed beams throughout and a mezzanine area - this is currently used as a games/storage room - but there are a host of possibilities for this space - to be partially enclosed to increase the living space, to be used as a large living room, to be used as a communal room for B& amp B guests, a cinema room, a gym, to be used as a space for classes such as as yoga, pilates, meditation, art, crafting, sewing or any other activity!
A large covered terrace extends from the rear of the barn to the enclosed, paved pool area and across to the separate stone house, configured as a large, 1-bedroom cottage with its own private terraces. This charming building would make a fantastic income-generating gite or would be ideal accommodation for extended family such as elderly parents or even visiting family.
The large 1.5 hectare grounds spread out to the rear of the property, with an abundance of mature trees, shrubs and hedges, planted to give a 'traditional' garden area. The remainder of the land is flat and would be ideally suited to grazing horses or sheep on.
The beautiful bastides of Miramont-de-Guyenne and Eymet are a 5 and 15 minute drive away. Here you find all amenities, supermarkets, doctors, schools as well as a thriving expat community. The historic, bustling town of Bergerac with its international airport with flights to the Uk, Paris, Holland and Belgium is 40 minutes drive away. The beautiful city of Bordeaux and its international airport can be accessed within one and half hours.
This property would make a wonderful rural haven to retreat to, far from the daily grind, or equally a fantastic permanent home. Early viewing recommended.
