A very special gem in the heart of Le Bugue! This beautiful and spacious village house has been completely renovated to an extremely high standard and provides all modern conveniences and comfort. The cosy rear garden is on the upper level and is well stocked with box balls, roses and a variety of flowering and evergreen shrubs. There are various shady dining areas located within the garden and the ensemble is complemented by a heated swimming pool - very unusual in a village house. Another big plus point is the large integral garage.
On the ground floor the solid wood entrance door leads into the spacious tiled entrance hall. The entrance door (and two other exterior doors) have very pretty hand cast wrought iron grills which may be closed whilst the doors are open to allow a cool current of air to pass throughout the house. To the right of the entrance hall is an attractive bedroom with a mix of beautiful exposed stone walls and plaster. Adjacent to the bedroom is a shower room with corner shower, toilet and hand made vanity unit with basin.
On the left side of the entrance hall is the internal door leading to the garage, which in turn has a remote controlled door leading to the street. On the ground floor is also a corridor with lots of built-in cupboards which leads to a large utility/laundry room with butler sink, plumbing for washing machine and dryer, a water softener and the oil-fired Weissman boiler and oil tank.
The entire ground floor is tiled.
A solid wooden staircase leads up to the beautiful large open plan living/dining/kitchen with tiled floor, wood burning stove and part exposed stone walls. The entire ensemble exudes elegance and quality, with numerous double glazed doors and windows on both sides of the room.
The modern kitchen has 2 large built-in ovens, an electric hob, a stainless steel extractor fan and an island with sink and Pierre de Bourgogne work surface.
From the sitting area a door leads into a large bedroom with ensuite bathroom. The bedroom has a typical French balcony, in limed oak, overlooking the quiet street. The spacious ensuite bathroom has a bath, separate shower, a toilet and 2 washbasins with large mirror - all made-to-measure by a local artisan.
From the kitchen area the solid wood staircase continues up to the top floor with immense living/bedroom suite which has large doors with louvre shutters leading to the exterior passerelle (walkway) which gives access directly to the garden and heated pool. The suite has a beautiful beam structure which has been limed, a bedroom with a very large selection of built-in wardrobes, a sitting area with wood burning stove and a large ensuite bathroom with a separate toilet.
The en-suite bathroom has a Victorian bath, a separate shower and double washbasins. A large selection of dressing wardrobes also encircles the bathroom.
The suite also has reversible air conditioning (heat/cool).
Returning to the main living room, 2 pairs of French doors lead to the tiled sunny terrace which runs the length of the rear of the house.
In addition to the terrace, which also has a covered dining area with built-in cupboards, there is an outbuilding which currently serves as an office. It has water and electricity, and can therefore be converted into a 4th guest bedroom if required. Tiled floor, plumbing for a shower room, very high ceiling with velux window and beams and a door to the street with hand-made iron grill allowing air flow.
From the terrace, a gate gives access to a stone staircase which leads up to the garden and swimming pool. From here you have a beautiful view of the church tower.
A large arched garden gate at the top level of the rear garden leads to the tiny back street which descends down into Le Bugue.
This spacious, luxury property offers clients the opportunity to live in the centre of the market town of Le Bugue, with access to all amenities, and with the great advantage of a private garage and a sunny rear garden with heated swimming pool.

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.
In the centre of the market town of Le Bugue with all amenities. 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.
