A stunning property consisting of two beautifully renovated stone houses (one an old water mill) set on the edge of a large lake and surrounded by 21 acres of meadows and woodland within the national park area of the Perigord Vert.
This would make a perfect property for anyone looking to establish a holiday destination and/or a fishing business. The lake is also used as an energy resource and provides heating for the main house via a hydrothermic heat exchange system which uses a network of pipes laid along the bed of the lake. Hot water for both the houses is provided by solar heating.
The main house is part ancient cottage and part converted barn. On the ground floor is an enormous Lounge & Dining Room covering 77m2 with underfloor heating, a stone fireplace with woodburner and large glass doors offering a view of the lake. There is a smaller sitting room (again with underfloor heating and a wood burning stove), a well equipped fitted kitchen and a charming garden room which opens out onto a decked terrace at the rear. A downstairs shower room with w.c. and a boiler room complete the the accommodation on this level.
An oak staircase leads to the first floor which has two guest bedrooms and a bathroom along with a magnificent Master Bedroom suite. This consists of a bedroom with fantastic views over the lake, an ensuite bathroom with both freestanding bath and shower cubicle, a dressing room and a study.
The second house has been used by the current owners as a maison d’amis and has been developed from the former mill house – it is heated via a gas fired central heating system. The main living accommodation is on the first floor with a spacious lounge & dining room with vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and set around a lovely fireplace with a wood burning stove. There is a fitted corner kitchen and a shower room with w.c. on this floor.
A spiral staircase descends to the ground floor where there are three bedrooms and a shower room with w.c.. One of the bedrooms has access onto a decked terrace where the mill stream tumbles down the rocks in a waterfall.
There is also access up to a very useful loft space and this property has a further terrace to the front.
The lake covers a surface area of around 3 and a half acres and was last inspected in 2012. There are two separate meadow areas on the banks of the lake, one with a large vegetable garden, whilst the rest of the land is wooded. Adjacent to the house is a a workshop and garage measuring 12m by 8m
The property has no near neighbours and sits alongside a quiet country road within the beautiful countryside of the Parc Naturel Régional Périgord-Limousin. It is just 10 minutes drive to the centre of Nontron, a bustling market town with a good range of bars, restaurants, shops and supermarkets and only 45 minutes from the medieval city of Perigueux. The international airport at Limoges can be reached in around 50 minutes.
