Originally built in 1900, this lovely stone country house now has a full suite of modern creature comforts. Its’ B-category energy efficiency rating is testament to the work the current owners have undertaken to make this a very comfortable home year round.  The newly installed pool, 2 workshops, a garage, summer kitchen & pretty garden complete the package.

The rooms at the house are large and light and the total habitable space at the house is 156m2.  The accommodation is arranged all on one level, so if you are looking for ground floor bedrooms and bathrooms, this would be a good contender.  There are, in fact, two adjoining workshops that add an additional 130m2 to the footprint that could be converted into additional accommodation if required (subject to planning).  Here is the current layout:

Kitchen - 14.5m2 - New Schmidt kitchen units (induction hob, dishwasher & fridge included in the sale).  Patio doors to terrace & pool area

Open plan sitting/dining room - 60.5m2 - a large, light room with arched window and two sets of french doors to the pool area.  Stone fireplace is fitted with a wood-burning stove

Study / Mezzanine area - 16.6m2

Corridor with built-in wardrobes - 5m2

Master bedroom - 15.6m2 with brand new en suite bathroom 6.6m2

Hallway - 4.5m2

Family bathroom with shower - 5.4m2

Corridor 4.5m2

Bedroom 2 - 8.55m2

Bedroom 3 - 15.9m2

Utilities

The house is fitted with a new micro station drainage system, fibre broadband connection, an air-source heat pump that powers the central heating and double glazed windows.

Outside

The grounds cover 1.13 hectares, roughly 2.75 acres.  The grounds are partly enclosed by fencing and electric gates at the top of the driveway.  The two workshop areas adjoin the house, but there is also a separate stone garage that is 60m2 in size.  The remaining land is an area of meadow with it’s own access via a lane that also leads to the outbuildings.

The swimming pool is brand new, as is the covered terrace and summer kitchen area.  This is the perfect spot for enjoying the long summer days, simply moving from one meal onto the next.  Whilst in the winter, the house, with it’s B-rated energy efficiency will be nice and warm during any winter cold snap.

Location:

The house has lovely countryside views down the valley and is in a quiet, peaceful rural location.  And yet, the nearby village of St Quentin de Caplong has a community shop selling local, fresh produce (and wine of course!) 7 days a week and there are organised events throughout the year.  Gensac,under 5km away, is a very pretty village with shops, a bank, bakery, doctor, medical centre, schools, chemist and tabac.  There is also a small weekly fresh produce market, a couple of well-regarded restaurants and if you are a keen tennis player, there is an active tennis club.  If golf is more your thing, there are a couple of good courses nearby to choose from.  

The nearby historic bastide towns of St Foye La Grande (15mins) Duras (20mins) and Bergerac (40mins) offer restaurants, bars, supermarkets, shops and weekly markets.  Other towns well worth exploring in the area might be Pessac-sur-Dordogne and Sauveterre-de Guyenne.

For the keen hiker or cyclist, there are many cycle trails through the woods and along the waterways.  ‘The three washing stones’ is one particular spot well worth a visit.  f you are a water enthusiast, the Dordogne river is nearby and there are also three leisure lakes in the area.

For history buffs, the village retains many of its Gallo-Roman features, including traces of its settlements, temple carvings and unearthed monolith sarcophagi. 

It’s an easy drive to the nearest train station with a direct line into central Bordeaux and Bergerac airport is a 40min drive.
