Wonderful four bed character property with three bed cottage for sale, Dordogne



Situated on the outskirts of a hamlet, surrounded by vines and yet within easy reach of Bergerac, this property is foodie heaven. Set in the heart of the household, the large open-plan kitchen has been designed by a professional food writer and is both well-equipped and laid out. The breakfast area boasts a wonderful open fireplace, and the galleried landing above is open through the original beams – bathing the room in light and connecting the main living space to the bedrooms above. All four bedrooms have ensuites – indeed the master bedroom suite also has a sumptuous dressing room. There are a number of reception rooms, two of which could easily be roled as additional bedrooms.
The property is complemented by a three bedroomed cottage – modest in appearance but deceptively large inside. It too benefits from a large open-plan kitchen and living space at its heart. There are substantial attached and detached barns offering considerable and flexible expansion potential – fancy an indoor swimming pool, or perhaps accommodation for a fleet of classic cars?
Recently restored to a high standard, this property is ideal for a principle residence, a second home or a hospitality-based business.
