A picture-postcard home, full of charm and character, situated in the N. Dordogne, in a hamlet close to Brantôme. The property has been cleverly designed (by closing one door), to allow division of the house into 2 self-contained units, making it ideal for friends or paying guests.
Brantôme, sometimes called “The Venice of Perigord”, stands on the tranquil banks of the River Dronne in SW France. It is renowned for its Benedictine Abbey, founded in the 8th century. An elegant town, it is attractive to visitors, with a twice-weekly market, good shops, bars and restaurants, and as you would expect, riverside cafés. It can be reached quite cheaply from the UK using one of the international airports at Bordeaux, Limoges or Bergerac.
Built in the 12th Century the house has immediate appeal with brilliant blue shutters, cartwheels and well-kept grounds. Inside does not disappoint with chestnut floors and more beams than you could count! The accommodation is versatile, with a total of 3 double bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 2 kitchens and 2 comfortable sitting rooms. The possibility of providing an income from paying guests is evident.
The grounds extend to 2550m² (about ½ acre). There are plenty of well-established fruit and nut trees, an ample vegetable garden and plenty of space for a swimming pool subject to the usual permissions. In the winter the house is heated by a combination of methods, including a wood-burning stove.
