Beautiful 6-Bedroomed Village House With Gîte and Pool
L’Ermitage is a beautiful 6 bedroomed spacious village house with adjoining 4 bedroom gîte, suitable for income generating rental or separate family accommodation.
This is a remarkable opportunity to own a truly lovely Périgourdine detached house in the centre of a friendly, pretty French country village. Originally built around 1850 by a Parisian magistrate, it is a characterful property that has been extremely well maintained and is in current use as the main residence of the current owners.
Entry is into the large modern kitchen (with utility room, linen store and WC off to one side) and leads into the large oak-panelled sitting room, via the (also oak panelled) reading/dining room, or through the connecting hallway.
Oak stairs lead up to four large double bedrooms, including a master bedroom with modern en-suite bathroom. A newly renovated shower/WC is conveniently situated and the two bedrooms overlooking the garden have oak/chestnut balconies.
The stairs continue up to a full-size walk-in attic providing plenty of storage.
The main house is heated with newly installed modern electric radiators, a wood-burning cuisiniere in the kitchen, and a new, highly efficient wood pellet burner in the sitting room.
The attached gîte provides rental income during the summer season, or can be used as guest accommodation for the inevitable visitors from home! It has been renovated and modernised in the last year.
An annex contains further living space, with a self-contained 2-bedroomed apartment that was until recently used as a gîte but is currently used for storage. It has its own shower/WC and kitchenette.
A large study with a huge open fireplace provides ideal surroundings for those who want to work from home – the broadband service provides plenty of connectivity, with fibre coming to the village soon for even faster internet speeds.
The property is set on a plot of 12.60 Ares (1/3 acre) and is connected to mains drainage.
The private walled garden contains colourful shrubs, fruit trees and grape vines and a 3.5m x 7.25m swimming pool.
Outbuildings include a large workshop, a barn used for table tennis and other games, a double length garage another full size attic and other storage space.
L’Ermitage is situated in the small, friendly commune of Saint-Priest-les-Fougères, in the north of the Dordogne, within the boundaries of the Parc Naturel du Périgord/Limousin. It is 45 minutes from Limoges airport and rail access is minutes away with a branch station in la Coquille.
It really is as attractive and inviting as it looks.
The pool has it's own entrance so access by children is readily controlled.
Nothing describes life here in the Dordogne better than wining and dining in the garden of a lovely summer day.
Only 3.5km away, this small town is well-stocked with a supermarket, modern doctors' surgery, dental services, post office, hotel and restaurants.
Within the Parque Naturel, you can enjoy lots of outdoor activities; walking, cycling, canoeing, golf and fishing.
