R0158 - Light and airy Chateau commanding stunning view, Guardians Cottage.

Perigord Blanc, Dordogne

Set in 4 hectares of land and with commanding views over lovely rolling countryside, this chateau oozes period charm throughout. Although believed to have been built on foundations dating back to the 15th century, much of the current building now dates back to the 17th C. It has been cleverly orientated to enjoy full sunshine in the mornings, but with the west-facing facade composed of entrance halls and landings that allow occupants to keep it beautifully cool in the summer. Light and airy throughout, the property has been renovated extremely well and preserves the original features – stunning floors, ceiling roses and cornicing etc. The accommodation is split between the chateau itself, of which most of the 8 bedrooms have ensuites bathrooms, and a separate self-contained guest / guardian’s cottage that adds a further two. The setting is ideal – with gardens, woods, a small lake and a swimming pool that offers both views and privacy. Located on the fringes of a popular town off a quiet lane, the property enjoys the best of both worlds – the sense of a countryside setting and yet cyclable in to shops, bars, restaurants and schools. Whether looking for a full-time residence, a second home or a chateau rental business, this property is a must-see.
