A beautiful spacious Périgourdine house with a large barn, garage and pool, situated on a beautiful plot near the charming village of Ste Alvère.
This stately home has a lot of character which you get a sudden feel for as soon as you enter the beautiful gate.
The rooms are very spacious, and still have many original features such as old wooden floors, large fireplaces, old exposed beams, stone walls and built-in wooden wardrobes.
The large main door leads straight into the hall with a terra cotta tiled floor. To the left of the hall with windows to both sides, is a light and airy dining room with traditional fireplace and tiled floor. To the left of the dining room is the kitchen with solid oak units, built-in oven and built-in gas stove.
From the dining room, a door leads into the bright sitting room also with large fireplace and exposed beams. This room has access to and overlooks the courtyard that has a covered terrace. From here, a door leads to a spacious utility room with shower and WC.
Back in the sitting room the first of 2 staircase leads up to the first floor where you find four good sized bedrooms. As you reach the top of the stairs, one double bedroom is on the left side and the second bedroom on the right side has a wooden floor, built in wooden wardrobe and exposed stone walls. From the second bedroom, a door leads to a private hallway leading to a very spacious ensuite bedroom (traditional pink tiling) with a beautiful view of the countryside of Ste Alvère.
The hallway also leads to an open space with a beautiful large fireplace, an old wooden floor and exposed stone walls. Currently this area is used as office space. Across from the open plan office space is the last of the four bedrooms again with a built-in wooden wardrobe and a large ensuite bathroom with both a bath and shower.
Returning to the office area, the second solid wood staircase leads down again into the ground floor hallway with the main door. From here, a door leads into another spacious bright sitting room with cosy fireplace. Adjacent to this sitting room is a second smaller kitchen room and separate WC. The back door leads out on to the courtyard.
As you approach the house, on the left side is a huge barn with a beautiful wooden beam structure. At present, the barn houses both the oil tank and boiler.
Directly adjacent is a garage that is suitable parking for 2 cars.
The pool with roman steps is set in the mature garden that has many varying fruit trees and shrubbery.

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.
2 Km from Ste Alvère (weekly market, post office, bakery, supermarket and restaurant)
