Full Description

Everything you could wish for to start your new life in rural France!
Nestled in a peaceful hamlet on the edge of a village with a popular bar/restaurant sits this impressive stone built property which offers a spacious, four bedroom house, a three bedroom barn conversion, a heated swimming pool, a riverside meadow and outbuildings for storage. The property is presented to a very high standard, so that you can simply move in and enjoy it from day one.
The owners live in the barn conversion (which was completed in 2011) and let the larger property out as a gîte, generating both outstanding reviews and an excellent income stream.
The two houses are set around a delightful courtyard. The original house, originally built in 1846, is in the ‘maison du maître’ style and has a covered dining terrace at the front. On the ground floor is a spacious lounge with a wood burning stove, a fully fitted dining kitchen and a w.c. On the first floor are two impressive bedrooms and a bathroom, and a further two bedrooms and a shower room are located on the second floor. This house benefits from a solar heating system for the hot water and both electric radiators and double glazing throughout.
The second house has been created from a former outbuilding and a section of the stone barn. It cleverly combines contemporary design features with original features such as exposed beams and beautiful stonework. The main entrance hall has sliding patio doors and features stone steps that lead up to the first bedroom which is currently utilised as a TV and music room.
The ground floor rooms all benefit from underfloor, electric heating. There is a well equipped, fitted breakfast kitchen with a wood burning stove and patio doors that open onto a private dining terrace. The first of two ensuite bedrooms is also located on the ground floor and this has double glazed, sliding patio doors that provide access into the garden.
To the rear of the kitchen is a ground floor w.c. and access into the barn, part of which has been transformed into a very useful utility room which has two large storage cupboards.
Stairs rise from the kitchen to the first floor lounge and library, off which is a further ensuite bedroom.
The grounds consist of three distinct areas. Firstly there are the gardens adjacent to the two houses where the in-ground, heated salt-water pool is located, measuring 10m by 4m and with Roman steps to one end. The gardens also contain barbecue areas, a decked terrace, a number of fruit trees, a chicken run and a vegetable garden.
To the rear of the main house is a section of woodland which contains an old pigeonnière and then there is a parcel of land which runs down to the riverside and contains both an orchard and a grass meadow.
The local village of Saint Front La Rivière, with its beautiful château, is just a short walk away and offers a popular bar/restaurant. The larger village of Saint Pardoux La Rivière is only 3km away provides all the amenities required for daily life including a supermarket, boulangerie, butcher and pharmacy. The popular tourist destination of Brantôme is only 15 minutes away whilst the airport in Limoges can be reached within an hour.
