Charming old detached country cottage at the edge of a sweet village in a quiet hamlet in the Dordogne. This is a great opportunity to have some tranquility and calm in your life.
The cottage has a rustic style with a large Perigourdine roof which allows ample room to make extra accommodation in the attic (subject to necessary permissions), which is the width of the house. It has 3 bedrooms (one with an en-suite shower room) another separate shower room and a living room with corner kitchen and dining area with access to the garden on both sides. There is a fireplace with a wood burning stove for the cooler nights. There are some nice traditional features such as the exposed beams and stonework.
Next door is an attached garage with ample storage space and open to the attic area. There is also an old stone barn directly across from the house which is currently used for storage.
The house is rented as a gite in the season offering a popular holiday environment for up to 6 people who want a recreational, private lake facility as part of their holiday. Contents of the house are mainly included in the sale.
A good sized lawned garden surrounds the house, mostly fenced, with a front terrace to take in the views and unwind. Very easy access to the house and plenty of space to park
There are simply beautiful 180 degree views of the picturesque countryside and your own land and lake.
The land is a mixture of meadows, woodland and that gorgeous lake of approximately 1 hectare (10,000m sq.) and no chemicals have been used on the land . A stroll away from the house, there are some paths mown through the fields (which a local farmer can cut for you) down to the lake which you can walk all around using its shady paths, and it even has a couple of wooden jetties to fish from or climb down the attached ladder to have a swim. There is also additional access to the lake from the road for maintenance vehicles if required.
A boat stands waiting and the water is super clean with 4 underground water sources feeding it. The fish in the lake are: Carp, Perch, Roach and Tench.
The village is not far from nearby amenities, while in the village itself there is a newly opened bakery cum tea room, and 5 minutes away is La Coquille with all required amenities. Easy access to Limoges and its airport, and the main road to Perigueux, capital of the Dordogne. The market towns of Thiviers, Brantome, Excideuil and Saint-Yrieix-la-Perche are all close by for shopping and amenities, with lots of natural places to explore if you like walking. This has been the owner’s gite for many years now, they love the property but wish to downsize and want to see it go to someone who will truly appreciate it .
