Masion de Maitre plus two guest cottages for sale, Dordogne, France


This traditional Maison de Maitre dates back to the 16th century and its architecture oozes the charm one would expect of such a historic property. But beneath its exterior lies a property recently renovated in a more contemporary style boasting all the mod cons. Moreover, it is an extremely flexible dwelling - there are two bedrooms in the main building, with a self-contained annex adjoining adding another two. Two additional cottages flank the main courtyard, adding a further two self-contained units each with one bedroom. It is ideally suited to be a main residence with additional guest cottages (one of which is entirely on the ground floor - ideal for disabled or elderly relatives), or as a second home. All is complemented by a 12 by 6 meter heated low maintenance pool with electric security cover, tiled shower area and a large sun terrace. The pool complex benefits from a pool house with storage room, covered dining area and fully-equipped summer kitchen. It would equally serve as an excellent holiday home business.
It is ideally located for access, being between Bergerac and Bordeaux (both with their international airport), and only a few minutes from a train station. The surrounding area is rich in history (the battle of Castillon, which effectively ended the Hundred Years War is only a few minutes away), as well as the vineyards of Bordeaux. The stunning town of St Emilion, revered by wine-lovers worldwide, is only 30mins .
