Oh what a location!! Oh what awful, overpowering flowery wallpaper!!! But you must look past the that to see what a beautiful property this is....
New on the market. A beautiful old house which is actually mostly built of stone under that crepie. Four great sized bedrooms with two bathrooms. It is light and bright (even with the decor) and you just look out across the land.
*Four bedrooms (one measuring 25m2)
* Large kitchen of 17m2
*One shower room
*Large lounge of 40m2
*Large independent garage
*Nearly two hectares of garden
The location is idyllic. Peace and quiet and about two minutes from the river Dordogne. Access is down a small, rarely used country lane.
Down by the river...
The garden is huge and flat. To the side is an area for wining and dining which is covered by a grape vine which were just ripe when we visited - so we had to try a couple of bunches - very nice! There are quite a few trees and bushes growing somewhat randomly around the immediate area of the house. This gives an air of mystery! It is about 3 km from the village of Vayrac where there is all small commerce.
The lounge is quite an exceptional room. It is large, 40m2, but is such an interesting shape which makes it so inviting. I could imagine arranging my (more tasteful!) furniture around the fireplace. The kitchen is very much older style but because of it's size, you really could do something very nice. The main bedroom is large. Once again has some lovely shapes to it. The photo's can give the impression that the ceilings are low - this is due to the love of the previous owner wallpapering everything in sight, including the ceilings! However, I'm much taller than the average French person and there is plenty of room!
There is a large terrace on the first floor. Oh how you could enjoy a quiet coffee taking in the views......!
The bathrooms are basic (aren't they always?!) but all very usable.
There is an integral garage, a chauferrie (where the boiler is) but also a huge independent garage that could store two cars and the tractor needed to mow the lawn!
My view: A very nice property. Close your eyes for two seconds, re-look at the photo's imagining a white blank canvas...... Just add colour of your choice and you could have a stunning property!! You will not be disappointed with the location if you like a peaceful life.
