Old style french property - Vanxains - Ref.:703861

Beautifully presented Country House with 6 Bedrooms.

Wonderful 6 bedroom countryside property. Converted from a barn using only local artisans. Fabulously presented and oozing in character. The property is situated at the end of a country lane just 2 kilometres outside the small Dordogne village of Vanxains and around 7 kilometres from the market town of Riberac. The property has been fully renovated to a very high statndard and boasts of a wonderful open plan living./dining room with its centre piece 17KW 360 degree logburner.

Leading from the main living area are doors on to the rear wisteria covered terrace for relaxing and eating with views over the beautiful countryside. Oneof entrance doors of the property leads into a large boot room with laundry facilities, perfect for kicking off walking boots and clothes before entering into the downstairs bathroom and through to the main living area. Alternatively the house can be entered off the front covered terrace and into the fully fitted kitchen, again leading into the large lounge area. There is a downstairs study just off the living area and also another large room up a couple of steps. At the moment this room is used for storage but would easily be put to use as another living area with its large open fireplace. Alternatively this room could make a rather splendid kitchen.

Stairs off the main living area lead to a huge landing with high vaulted ceilings and an area with afeature open aspect mezzanine. The landing leads off to 6 bedrooms all of which are superbly presented and which much style. A large master bedroom with walk in wardrobes and ensuite bath/shower room. There is a large double bedroom leading to a jack and jill bathroom shared with a large twin bedroom. There are 2 more large double bedrooms and a further large double with a superb covered outdoorterrace area.

The manageable plot extends to 1680m2 and outside there is a large carport big enough for a couple of cars and there is also a very interesting old stone built chicken house which is used for storing gardenning equipment but again could be used as a coversion to extra living space.

The house also has solar water heating for the kitchen and 2 of the upstairs bathrooms. The main living area of the property also benfits from a heat exchange unit to provide airconditioning in summer and heat in winter, The rest of the property is heated with electric radiators.
