Set in almost 3 hectares this very spacious property, with several stone outbuildings and tennis court (that needs to be renovated), is located in the hills above Siorac and offers stunning views of the forest, valley and countryside beyond. Renovated with a strong eye to detail, with high quality fixtures and fittings throughout, there is also scope for further extension into the large loft space.
On entering the property one arrives into the very large open plan sitting/dining/kitchen which has one complete glazed side of sliding doors giving out to an immense covered dining area with balcony overlooking the gorgeous view. This outside dining area has a fully equipped summer kitchen including dishwasher, double sink, gas hob and barbecue enabling al fresco dining to be enjoyed at almost any time of year and offers a very special place to relax.
Returning to the tiled sitting/dining area with its insert fireplace and electric blinds to the glazed doors, a trompe l'oeil cleverly hides the very well equipped, hand made kitchen with granite worksurfaces enabling this area to be closed off from the main sitting area once cooking has finished. A good selection of base and wall units in cream, electric blind for the window and built-in appliances include a 5 ring gas hob with extractor fan, double ovens, microwave, dishwasher and American fridge.
Also on this level is a very large second sitting room, ideal for a TV or games room, a separate WC with hand basin and an office with glazed windows spanning two corners of the house looking out over the stunning views.
All rooms on this level benefit from reversible aircon (i.e. providing hot air in winter and cold air in summer)
From the second sitting room stairs lead down to a wine cellar (very clean/dry) and a very good sized laundry room with separate shower room + WC. This room has a side door leading out to a covered open-air room with arched window in which the current owners had intended to install a fully tiled spa area with jacuzzi. Also at this level is a large and fully kitted out workshop with shelves, Ideal Standard boiler, water softener, fuel tanks for central heating etc.
Returning to the main sitting room and still on the ground floor level, with its own access to the outside if required, is a self contained suite with large bedroom, separate WC and large bathroom. This area would benefit from a cosmetic makeover and the owners have plans drawn up which they would be happy to show to prospective buyers.
From the sitting room stairs lead up to a double bedroom with newly installed ensuite shower room and dressing room. A door to the side of the dressing room leads into the attic in which the current owners have prepared electric feeds, evacuation pipes with water feeds, insulated walls, new double glazed windows and velux - ready for anyone wishing to create a further ensuite bedroom (plans available).
Returning to the landing area on this level there is a further large double bedroom suite with balcony and its own bathroom, separate WC and mezzanine music room with large picture velux windows from which the views may be seen.
Outside a stone borie, bergerie, a stable and an immense barn nestle in the grounds, each with its own running water and electric supply. There is also a source within the grounds and the property has its own water treatment station.
Being in such an elevated position with lovely views the gardens are mainly sloping to the rear of the property but behind, where the tennis court is located, the grounds are flat with a good selection of mature trees. Installation of a pool, if potential buyers were interested, could either be near the tennis court or alternatively an infinity pool could be installed behind the property overlooking the view.
There are two driveways giving access to the property allowing "in-out" flow for cars and there is covered parking alongside the barn.
All in all a very spacious property, finished to an extremely high standard and benefitting from the most amazing views. Close to shops at Siorac (5 mins) and just 10 mins to the market towns of St Cyprien and Le Buisson.

This property is based in the Dordogne (often referred to by its ancient name "The Périgord"). Although times may have changed over the years the beautiful Dordogne landscape, in one of the most beautiful areas of France, continues to offer something to amaze and delight everyone. This ancient land, deep in the heart of sunny south-west France, is perfect holiday country; a magical place that will reward all those who choose to explore it.
The Périgord Noir, where the vast majority of our properties are located, is the 'Jewel in the Crown' of the Dordogne for here, in the triangle formed between the rivers Vézère and Dordogne, you will find the greatest concentration of natural wonders and historic sites, and the loveliest stretches of both rivers. The area is bounded by four famous towns and this property is well situated within this boundary - Sarlat, a medieval treasure house; Périgueux, a thriving and sophisticated small city; Bergerac, shippers of wine since the Middle ages and Monpazier, an extraordinarily well preserved bastide built by King Edward I in 1285.
