Iron gates open onto the private driveway that leads down to a parking area that is easily big enough for 7-8 cars. The grounds cover 8250m2, an area of just over 2 acres, that is populated with lovely mature trees. It is a haven for wildlife, particularly around the natural spring.
There is also a large lawn area that is very effectively managed by the current owners with the assistance of their super Husqvarna robot lawn mower. The swimming pool is 12m x 5m and is the centre of the ‘leisure area’ where there is also a sauna, hot tub and a boules pitch. In front of the main house is a large terrace area with plenty of space for an enormous table that can accommodate everyone for long, leisurely al fresco meals.
Whilst the house and cottage are surrounded by this lovely parkland, the property is not isolated and the amenities of the nearby village are within walking distance. This is an area that is fantastic for exploring - beautiful waterfalls, natural lakes and super golf courses. The weekly market at Tulle is well worth a visit and Collonges la Rouge and Beaulieu sur
Dordogne are ideal for a day trip. Brive and Limoges airports are around an hour away.
