A beautiful family home, dating from the 16th century, with an 18th century facade, our home is nestled in a peaceful hamlet, well away from main roads, yet only 6 minutes drive from the thriving market town of Riberac, which has all you need on a daily basis, and a secondary school, music school, sports facilities, and 3 minutes from the pretty little village of Allemans, which has a popular bar/restaurant, church and primary school.
Set in an acre of private gardens, with a swimming pool and an attractive 18th century pigeonnier ready to become a home office, guest cottage or granny annexe. There is also a stone outbuilding currently housing 4 hens. The house is approached over a private driveway leading to a walled courtyard with covered parking for 4 vehicles and access through stone arches to the front of the house, another walled courtyard with stone paving, roses and a chestnut tree.
Inside the house has been completely rebuilt following a fire in 2012, and now boasts underfloor central heating by pellet boiler over 3 floors, new double glazing in all rooms, new plumbing and electrics and a new fully insulated mansard roof. On the ground floor is an open plan kitchen dining sitting room , the sitting dining area having paneled walls and an attractive working stone fireplace and double doors to the terrace overlooking the garden. The kitchen has a central island with a marble top and oak fronted cupboards, a smeg 150cm oven set into a stone fireplace, and wall units covering one wall. There is also a new water softening system. Up 3 steps is a smaller sitting room with marble fireplace and built in bookshelves creating a library feel. Stone steps lead from the kitchen to the central hall with impressive central oak staircase leading up to two storeys. Also downstairs is a spacious utility laundry room with access to the rear garden.
On the first floor are 4 large bedrooms, 2 with ensuite shower rooms and 2 sharing a huge family bathroom with double basins, freestanding bath and marble clad walk in shower. From this floor there is access to a third sitting room which could be used as another bedroom suite or games room, and which leads out onto a balcony with beautiful views over the surrounding countryside and the gardens.
