Nestled within the verdant countryside and rolling hills of the Parc Naturel Périgord-Limousin, the idyllic location for this first class property meets the following description perfectly….”in the middle of nowhere but close to everywhere”.
Set on a narrow no through lane and with only woodland and meadows around, peace and tranquility is assured. However, within an easy eight minute drive is the bustling town of Nontron with supermarkets, banks, doctors and all the other shops and services needed for everyday life.
Meanwhile, the medieval city of Angoulême, with its high-speed rail connections to Paris and Bordeaux, is only 45 minutes away whilst the airport in Limoges is only an hour’s drive.
The house faces south and enjoys open views across a wooded valley and thanks to a Conservatory that wraps around the south and west of the property, these views can be appreciated all year round.
The ground floor accommodation comprises a large kitchen which has a good range of fitted units along with a kitchen island, and includes an eye level double electric oven and a five ring gas hob set beneath an extractor hood. Whilst this is very much a cook’s kitchen, the room lends itself to being the heart of the home. There is a wood burning stove to supplement the oil fired central heating, and space for a dining table and some easy chairs.
Adjacent to the kitchen is a more formal dining room which is overlooked by a galleried landing and forms part of an open plan living room that has glazed doors opening into the garden and a wood burning stove set within a focal chimney breast.
Also on the ground floor is a bathroom which, along with a w.c., features both a shower cubicle and a bath.
There are three double bedrooms leading off the galleried landing, one of which has an ensuite shower room with w.c., along with a separate w.c. and some very useful storage space into the eaves.
The garden area to the front of the house has been beautifully landscaped and is well planted with a range of mature shrubs and flower beds. At the heart is the 10m by 5m, heated swimming pool which has a flagged surround and a seating area set beneath a pergola.
There are two outbuildings in the grounds, one of which was the original stone dwelling on the site and which retains an original fireplace. It adjoins a spacious garage and workshop. With the necessary permissions, there could be scope to transform these buildings into a gîte.
Beyond the formal garden area, the grounds slope gently down towards the woods, whilst to the rear of the house is a small paddock. A graveled parking area has been created to the side of the house, making easy off road parking for a number of cars.
