A large, attractive and very well maintained property located on the outskirts of Manaurie. Constructed in 2002/3 with high quality fixtures and fittings, new septic tank and swimming pool, the property combines the charming Périgourdine style with modern insulation and building regulation requirements.
The lawned grounds surround the property and are stocked with a lovely selection of shrubs, trees, hedges and flowering plants. With woodland to the rear and front of the property, the Château of Manaurie perches high above the forest in the distance offering a lovely outlook from the large covered terrace which runs along the front of the house.
The village of Manaurie has its own small café/bar which is within walking distance of the house. For larger shops, Les Eyzies is just 5km away (market town with weekly market, general shopping, post office, bank & restaurants) and the market town of Le Bugue is just 12kms drive (all amenities, supermarkets, banks & restaurants and twice weekly market).
On the ground floor is a very large open plan kitchen/sitting/dining room. The dining area has large Italian floor tiles and light toned walls. To the left is the well equipped kitchen with a good range of base and wall units, built-in oven and induction hob with extractor fan, dishwasher and generous sized work surfaces. A door leads out from the kitchen onto the large covered terrace which over looks the grounds and pool, as well as the château.
On passing through a large stone archway from the dining area one finds the sitting room with high open beams, open ornamental fireplace with wood burning stove and large italian floor tiles. Doors lead from the sitting room to both the front and back garden.
Also on the ground floor is a good sized utility room, a very prettily decorated twin bedroom with door out to the rear garden and an ensuite tiled shower room with WC. This shower room is also accessible from the dining room without passing through the bedroom.
Solid wood stairs lead up from the sitting area to the first floor which has a large mezzanine reading area with solid wood floor. On either side of the mezzanine are two double bedrooms with solid wood flooring, one with tiled ensuite shower room and the other with tiled bathroom (including shower over bath).
Outside, under the house, is a basement with laundry room with sink, (washing machine and chest freezer to remain) and a workshop/pool room.

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.
Less than 1 hour from Bergerac airport, 1.5 hours from Brive airport, 2.5 hours from Bordeaux airport/TGV station and 2.5 hours from Toulouse airport.
5kms from Les Eyzies (general shopping, bank & restaurants); 12kms from Le Bugue (all amenities + supermarkets, banks & restaurants).
