A truly wonderful property in the heart of the Monbazillac wine region, giving a very rare opportunity to acquire an exceptional domain in this much sought after organic wine region. 2 minutes from shops and restaurants and only 10 minutes from Bergerac airport.
At its centre is a wonderfully restored 4 bedroom house, a separate and beautifully restored 2 bedroom cottage, heated swimming pool, horse manège , tennis court, boules court, art studio, workshops (planning permission to convert into a 3rd house), garages, wine cellar, meadows, an orchard, and two private ponds.
In this wonderfully peaceful and private setting, the main house has been completely renovated with beautiful and up to date living accommodation including a large living room, large dining room with wood burning stove, modern kitchen with all appliances, 4 large bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a boiler room and a 50m2 covered terrace.
There is a second two bedroom house fully renovated to a very high standard currently providing excellent holiday rental income. This house includes a large open plan kitchen, dining, and living room with wood burning stove and 2 large bedrooms both with en-suite shower rooms.
Planning permission is also in place to convert a separate building into a 3rd house with 2 or 3 bedrooms. The building has all external walls and roof tiles in excellent condition and already has a new electricity supply in place, so conversion would be at a minimal cost.
Other buildings include a workshop/studio, 2 double garages, a stable, a wine cellar and various other outbuildings.
Outside facilities include a newly installed 9m x 4.5m heated salt water swimming pool, complete with electric security cover, automated salt and ph systems, a large sunbathing terrace and a solar shower.
There is also a completely renovated tennis court, a newly installed 40m x 20m fully fenced horse manège, a children’s climbing frame and a boules court with covered dining area.
Approximately 2/3’s of the land is currently used for horses and has mains electric fencing and private sourced water to all fields. The remaining land includes stunning private walkways, wooded areas, 2 private ponds, an orchard and a substantial meadow behind the house.
All land is reserved from hunting, and all surrounding vineyards are organic wine producers with care for the environment.
There are several business opportunities with this property, including the possibility of using the large field behind the house as a truffle farm (the adjacent field is currently used for truffles), which is only possible in very specific locations around the world. Other options include using some of the land as a camp site, caravan park, tree houses, tree climbing (all subject to planning consent), converting the workshop/art studio into a 3rd house, or using it as a studio for art or yoga classes.
This is an outstanding and very rare opportunity for anyone wishing to own a substantial domain in one of the most beautiful regions of France.
Surrounded by vineyards, small villages, wonderful chateaux and areas to explore. The nearest boulangerie is 2 minutes drive, where you will also find a convenience store, restaurants, take away options and a post office, or Sigoules at 8 minutes, where you will find a supermarket, pharmacy, restaurants, bars, post office, petrol, surgery and a range of other services.
Within 5 minutes of the house there are several restaurants ranging from extremely small and typically french cuisine to the Michelin star ‘Tour des Vents’ restaurant. Chateau Bridiore and Chateau Monbazillac are also within 5 minutes drive. The house is also very centrally located between the medieval villages of Issigeac and Eymet and only 10km from Bergerac airport and Bergerac town centre with it’s vast array of shops, restaurants and bars.
