About this Property

EXCLUSIVE TO BEAUX VILLAGES! This much loved home has been owned by the same family for over 60 years and is now on the market exclusively with Beaux Villages Immobilier. The manor-style house and its annexe are located in the heart of one of the most beautiful villages of France, and is thought to have been a customs house for the river merchants of the past.

The main house entrance is from the pretty gated courtyard and leads to the eat-in kitchen to the left with its original pizé (cobbled) stone floor, and through to the laundry room to the right, also with a pizé floor. Beyond the laundry room are the technical rooms for the house with boiler and pool equipment, the workshop and a large room currently used as a games room. There is also a room on the ground floor that could be used as either an additional bedroom, or a study, with access to the terrace.

Beyond the kitchen is the dining room which has taken centre-stage in the old formal entrance to the property. This lovely room has original concrete tiles and a beautiful wood staircase. It also leads through to the gorgeous south-facing salon with a dual aspect and double doors leading down to the large, shaded terrace that overlooks the river Dordogne.

Upstairs is a large landing that has been arranged as a second living space. The principal bedroom is dual aspect, with stunning views over the river. It has a bathroom with WC. A second double bedroom has an additional, smaller room attached. It is currently used as a single bedroom, but could also make a lovely dressing room, or potentially, an ensuite bathroom. There is a further twin bedroom and a family shower room with WC.

Stairs lead up from the back-staircase, to the vast attic with vaulted ceilings. This would easily make another 2-3 bedrooms with further bathrooms, subject to permissions.

Above the games room is a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom annexe that has not been lived in for several years and now requires renovation to create a super guest apartment. Alternatively, it could be possible to create an entire second house by integrating the games room down below.

If that is not enough, the house comes with a lovely walled garden, with stunning mature trees, the old village laverie source, and 10 x 5m swimming pool. This size of garden is extremely rare in such a village.

These houses do not come to market often, please plan your visit soon.

Aquitaine

Dordogne

Limeuil

Aquitaine

If you want variety, Aquitaine is possibly the place for you. The largest administrative region in France, covering pretty much the whole of the south west corner. It has Atlantic coastal towns and seemingly endless pine forests to the west, the stunning backdrop of the Pyrénées in the south, vineyards (both wine and cognac) in the centre and north, lush pastures and agricultural landscapes in the north east and the most stunning architecture, valleys and villages from the centre towards the east.

Testimonials

    Testimonial by John Edmondson

    We put our house on the market with Beaux Villages and from the very beginning we were impressed with their services. Good photographs and brochure were only the start; a team of agents from various offices came to the house so that they were better informed and could speak with firsthand knowledge to their respective potential buyers. We were aided throughout by the team especially by Donna Voice but also by Eric Garnier; and when we had some transactional difficulties (not owing to anything on the part of Beaux Villages) they were “there” offering advice and support. We are (and have been) delighted to recommend them.
