DESCRIPTION

This is a special wisteria-clad town house in a magical setting immediately above a lush eco- paradise with valley and lake - 70 mins from Bordeaux and thirty five mins from Bergerac.

With elements dating as far back as the 14 century, this former hunting lodge set on a private lane with views to a fairytale chateau beyond, will steal your heart.

The accommodation includes four bedrooms (plus a child's bedroom or dressing room in the pigeonnier tower) and four bathrooms plus a stunning 8m x 4m in-ground NEW pool with spacious terracing and retaining wall with steps up to the garden.

Eight cypress trees sit at the back of the garden looking onto fields reminiscent of an Elysian dream. There is also an olive tree, a hazel nut tree and a fig tree.

In the beautiful and unspoilt Lot et Garonne, this stunning home with oil fired central heating is perched right in the middle of wine country and is only 45 minutes from St Emilion. There are over a dozen fabulous orchards and vineyards within walking distance.

It is also very close to several famous 12-century Bastide towns including Duras (at 7 mins drive) with its hugely impressive ancient castle and cafe culture.

The upper part of the house has three separate magnificent windows along the front, all of them overlooking the lake - the central windows opening onto a balcony.

There is a fully fitted kitchen with a free-standing Haier American-style fridge freezer, a five ring, 4-oven duel gas and electric Leisure Cookmaster range.

The main sitting room with massive arched ceiling beams and a Godin ‘Colonial’ wood burner boasts a massive stone baronial fireplace which dates, it is said, from the 16th century.

There are two bedrooms on this floor, one en suite with a bath and shower and a second bedroom with a separate bathroom. Both with bidets.

The lower level includes a large two bedroom apartment (both with their own separate bathrooms) with glass doors opening onto a sublime terrace overlooking the valley.

The current occupants use it as a second state living space / bar and study.

The original wooden doors and main staircase all in good repair, are thought to date from the 14th century along with the main front door to the building.

In front of the house there is an ancient stone well which comes with a parcel of land owned by the house right along the top of the valley overlooking the lake.

This is a serious lifestyle opportunity for anyone looking to move permanently to France or use the dwelling as a holiday home.
