Situated within the beautiful landscape of the Parc Naturel Regional Perigord Limousin, this prestigious six bedroom property offers luxurious accommodation set within 51 acres of farmland.
Created from a traditional stone farmhouse with two adjoining barns, the development of the property was completed in 2003 to the highest of standards, resulting in the extremely rare award of a perfect energy consumption classification of A. There is a wonderful blend of traditional charm and character along with superb, contemporary design touches and modern conveniences such as underfloor heating.
The primary living and entertaining space is open plan with a grand entrance hall featuring twin staircases rising to the first floor balcony and large glazed doors leading into the garden. The entrance hall leads through to a spacious dining area which has been designed to be easily accessible from the kitchen area and features a centre island with wine fridge, dishwasher and crockery storage.
Steps lead up into the main kitchen area which is fully equipped with all the appliances necessary for the enthusiastic chef, along with a walk in pantry.
The utility room acts as a side entrance to the house, perfect for removing boots and coats, and is equipped with washing machine and dog washing facilities. The oil fired central heating boiler and associated controls sit within an enclosed boiler room and there is another useful walk in larder cupboard.
Double doors open on the other side of the entrance hall into a formal sitting room with a magnificent stone fireplace. Also on the ground floor of this wing of the house is a study with built in library shelving, a wonderful games room with space for a table tennis table (or two!) and a ground floor bedroom with ensuite shower room, designed to provide wheelchair access.
At the head of the twin staircases is an informal mezzanine lounge with a stone fireplace, perfect for relaxing. The magnificent master bedroom suite has a luxurious ensuite bathroom with wet room style shower, dressing room with built in wardrobes and a spacious sleeping chamber.
There are a further four bedrooms on the first floor, two of which have ensuite shower rooms, along with a family bathroom.
The formal gardens surrounding the house extend to around 2.5 acres and have been beautifully designed and landscaped. Within the grounds are a heated, salt water swimming pool, a summer kitchen with outdoor dining terrace, a range of stone outbuildings and a well providing water that is pumped up to the house. The remaining meadow land is currently rented out to a local farmer.
The property sits on the edge of a sleepy, peaceful hamlet providing a real 'get away from it all' feeling. The village of Saint Saud Lacoussiere is just 8km away and in addition to offering a boulangerie, small supermarket, bar and pharmacy, it boasts what is probably the best fine dining restaurant in the area. Whilst you will certainly feel well away from the stresses of everyday life, the market towns of Nontron and Thiviers are within easy reach and the international airport in Limoges can be reached in just 40 minutes.
