A beautifully appointed, well maintained small estate with outbuildings and pool, nestling on a very private plot of 142.281m2 away from the hustle bustle. Most of the land is located in the forest and is situated in a beautifully landscaped garden via a long driveway.
The beautiful solid wood entrance door is located in the tower and leads to the TV room which has an open fireplace, exposed beams and "tomette" tiled floor. Behind the TV room is a good sized boiler room and boiler room with a Viessman boiler.
To the right of the TV room is a huge open plan living / dining room with a wood burner in the middle of the living room and several sets of French doors leading to the garden. The floor is tiled with old style floor tiles and the exposed stonework and building beam create a very characterful room. At the end of the living room is a semi open plan kitchen. The soft yellow kitchen, with door leading to the rear garden, has a large range Lacanche style with 2 ovens.
To one side of the kitchen leads to a balcony, separate toilet and two spacious bedrooms. The first bedroom has a large ensuite bathroom with shower, walk-in shower, vanity unit and built-in spotlights, and toilet. The bedroom has a light terracotta tiled floor and built-in wardrobes.
The second bedroom also has a terracotta tileable floor, built-in wardrobe and exposed stonework. The bathroom has a walk-in shower and toilet. Adjacent to this bedroom is a room that is actually used as a gym but could also be a dressing room or further bedroom.
Returning to the TV room, a hallway leads to the tower with solid wood staircase leading up to an office / study on the first floor. The second floor has the same surface area and could be converted to living space if desired.
The same tower hall gives access to the cottage which can be locked when rented. The cottage also has its own entrance from the garden. On the ground floor the cottage has an open plan living / dining room with fireplace, an en-suite kitchen with electric hob and built-in oven and a bathroom with shower, basin and toilet.
Upstairs are 3 bedrooms, the largest of which has a stone staircase on the outside that leads to the lower covered terrace. This floor is also a second bathroom with bath and toilet.
Adjacent to the cottage is a spacious workshop / studio. The cottage has its own central heating system with De Dietrich boiler.

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 then 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.
In Journiac, which is less then 10 minutes away from Le Bugue with all amenities.
