Pinsac (46) - For sale : In the heart..
A truly fabulous barn conversion, right in the heart of a pretty hamlet, with no passing traffic, enjoying superb views over the River Dordogne. close to the airport at Brive, you can depart from London City airport and a few hours later be on your own sun terrace or enjoying a meal in a local restaurant.
Fully renovated to a very high standard, using only the best quality materials, the property has also been running as a leading “chambres d'hotes de charme” business, and does therefore have good income potential.
From outside, you are immediately seduced by the superb views from the terraces, with the River Dordogne in one direction, the dominant chateau of Belcastel and the nearby C12th village church. You enter into a wonderfully light lounge 8 x 4 with 2 set of patio doors, and a picture window towards the chateau. In an open plan layout the dining room 4.6 x 3.3 also has a patio door, allowing light to flood into the room. Off the dining room is a well fitted kitchen 3.5 x 3.5 with a picture window looking into the garden and the church. Also on this floor is a separate entrance hall 3.5 x 2, leading to a ground floor bedroom 3.63 x 3.28 with a patio door Adjacent to this bedroom is a WC and also the 1st of the bathrooms. Quality floor tiles have been used throughout, and are of the same style, so that the rooms are not broken giving a much more pleasing finish.
Stairs lead out of the lounge to a landing off which are the 2 existing bedroom suites. The 1st of these rooms (19m2) has a dressing room, and bathroom with jacuzzi bath, (plus WC). The 2nd bedroom suite (17m2) has a very nice shower room hydromassage and WC. Currently the owner has a study / bureau and linen store on this floor, but this could easily be converted into a 4th bedroom if required at minimal cost.
The double glazed units are all recent (2013), and in “satin brown aluminium”, of the highest quality. Similarly, the tiling and sanitary ware is of a high specification. In summary, the house is in 1st class order and beautifully presented, having been rewired / re-plumbed and even re-pointed in recent years. A superb marriage of old style and modern comforts.
Beneath the house is a vaulted cave - perfect for your wine collection.

There is a “bassin” already in place if the new owner would like to add a swimming pool or water garden feature. On the lower level, the land extends right to the River Dordogne, where there is a small beach and it is possible to enjoy river bathing.
Heating is via modern economic electric heaters, plus the insert wood-burner (2014) in the lounge. The property is on a fosse septique. There is also a small dependance and wood shelter close to the house. The nearest shops are 7 Km away, whilst Martel (15 kms)with an excellent choice of bars and restaurants is a little further away.
