A 17th century, beautiful country property ....

Ref:  4079S

Price:  530.000€ (agency fee included)

Here is one of those fabulous, beautiful old French houses....  dating back to the 17th century.

Situated just on the outskirts of a beautiful village but hidden behind enormous gates and enclosed entirely by a stone built wall.  The village has small commerce but you have the choice between the larger towns of Souillac and Brive la Gaillarde, which are roughly about 20 mins in opposite directions.

This impressive property has stunning, immaculate kept gardens of 9755m2 with a separate 'pavillon d'amis'.
*4 bedrooms
*2 bathrooms
*Wine cave
*2 bed pavillion d'amis
*Natural source in the garden.

Entering through those gates, you are suddenly in the most private of gardens.  You look over to the house and cannot help but admire.  Beautiful!  
The interior, as with the exterior, is in excellent condition.  Maybe not decor of today (!!) but you can certainly see that this property has style and class!  There is a fantastic lounge room with cantou fireplace.  This measures 53m2 and is raised at one end to give quite a nice relaxing area...

There are 4 bedrooms, all of good size and one shower room and one bathroom.   The kitchen has fitted units but is a bit dull.  Probably the most disappointing part of the property!  

The pavillon has two bedrooms and is perfectly self contained and far enough away from the house to give you privacy from guests!!  The interior is very simple but it does what it says on the label!  A quick re-fit could make it much more stylish as the building itself is in perfect condition.

The situation of this house could not be better.  The gardens really are so peaceful and have some interesting parts to it.  The lovely natural water source is just fantastic!
