A rare opportunity to acquire this unique and prestigious property sitting in over two acres of landscaped grounds close to the centre of Nontron, the capital of the Périgord Vert. Designed and built sixty years ago by a local entrepreneur who was inspired by the style of the grand houses of Paris, the property retains that chic Parisian charm and style, from the wood paneled salon, the grand entrance hall and through to the original, silk wall coverings.
The roof is in excellent condition having been completely replaced in 2008 with a 30 year guarantee.
Set well back from the road within fully fenced grounds, the house is approached along a long graveled driveway that terminates at the double garage. The grounds are stocked with a range of beautiful mature trees that offer stunning colours at different times of the year, along with rose beds, clipped shrubs and a vegetable garden.
The house is entered on the first floor via an imposing entrance hall with fully glazed double doors that look out over the gardens, and a marble staircase rising to the first floor. To one side is the grand salon, a stunning room covering 42m2 with original oak, parquet flooring, oak paneled walls and a stone fireplace with a wood burning stove. French windows open out onto a balustraded terrace, perfect for entertaining.
On the other side of the entrance hall is the beautiful dining room which has French windows allowing guests to enjoy aperitifs on the south facing terrace. Off the dining room is a study.
The kitchen was completely refitted in 2016 and offers a range of modern kitchen units along with an integrated dishwasher, eye level electric oven, built in microwave and gas hob.
On the first floor there are two spacious bedrooms, both with ensuite bathrooms and separate w.c.’s, and one with a large walk in wardrobe. The other two bedrooms are on the ground floor and these are served by a further bathroom and w.c.. Also on this level are a garden room, a laundry room (also housing the boiler for the oil fired central heating), a wood store, a workshop and a wine cave.
Nontron is a bustling town which, in addition to the Saturday market, has three large supermarkets, a range of local shops, bars and restaurants and facilities such as a swimming pool. For those who prefer open water swimming, the leisure lake of Saint Estéphe is just 10 minutes away. The nearest international airport is in Limoges, just 60 minutes away, whilst the TGV high speed rail network can be accessed in Angoulême which is just a 45 minute drive.
