This most outstanding site with commanding southerly views over the Perigordine county side is undeniably the best there is to be had. With its 23.5 hectares of garden, prairie and woodland around, makes this property a rare opportunity.
Moreover, it lies only 5km from a thriving country village on the Dordogne river and 22km from Bergerac and its international airport.
Hidden in oak woodland, this property offers perfect conditions for a private and secluded life surrounded by ‘mother nature’ and makes for the ideal surroundings for golf, horse riding, animal breeding, tourist and human resourcing activities.
The house and annexes are surrounded by 1 hectare of lawns and ornamental plantations segregated by a wooden ‘range-style’ fence from a further 3 hectares of lawns and 12.5 hectares of wire-fenced in prairie and oak, chestnut and hornbeam woods. The latter has been managed with wide tracks for easy access, walking, jogging, horse and buggy riding.
There is a further 7 hectares of non-fenced in forest that has been purposefully dedicated to encouraging the proliferation of wildlife.
The natural site is home to a sandstone quarry that served major construction in and around Lalinde, as well as a fresh water pond and spring.
For all of those who have dreamt of playing golf at their own property, they will be happy to learn that there is not only a driving range of 220 meters but also a 7-hole (training) course with winter greens and bunkers.
There are on the 23.5 hectares a lot of possibilities to create further holes.
The property is accessed through electrically operated gates with a long gravel drive to the garage and a large parking area.
As for the traditional stone house with wooden double glazing you will appreciate the natural charm and authenticity of the living quarters that consist of a living room with open plan kitchen, a utility room, a toilet, and a bathroom with a bath, shower, toilet, bidet and twin basins on the ground floor.
Upstairs consists of two bedrooms and a storage area. Juxtaposed there is a magnificent barn of 85m² that cries out to be converted into at least 150m² of modern accommodation. A 48m² patio linked to the barn offers beautifully commanding views.
The animal barn has already been converted into guest accommodation and comprises a dining kitchen, a living room and an ensuite bedroom. It is equipped with electric radiators, a wood burner and double glazing.
A pigeonnier, pigeon house for prestigious properties only, is currently used for storage but also lends itself to become a charming gîte.
