Bigarrat is a stunning and stylish property overlooking wooded vistas from high within a private valley, more than 400 feet above sea level. The facade has the feel of an Italian villa, approached via a well maintained metalled drive. This elegant, south facing limestone farmhouse, built some 200 years ago, was lovingly and painstakingly restored by its current owners. nearly 7 acres surround the property, which benefits from a pleasing landscape of mature specimen trees and open grassland.

Inside is a real delight, and oozes character. The elegant salon has a fantastic open fire; the large kitchen/diner (perfect for dinner parties) has a Chazelles wood burner; the 2 principal bedrooms are en-suite, with 2 further bedrooms in the east wing; mostly double glazed; the central heating is gas fired to 'old school' modern radiators.

Outside, 5 interlinked terraces provide for relaxation and al-fresco dining, one with a bar and bbq. Garden lighting completes the ambiance. A 10 metres heated swimming pool with 'skinny dip' privacy receives sunshine all through the day.

The large barn could be kept for garaging, stabling, storing wood etc. or renovated to provide further stunning accommodation. Within the curtilage is a discreet 2 acre building plot, or paddock, with 'eye candy' views.

ABOUT THE AREA

The area is rural and although the Pecharment wine appellation is close by, local farming is mainly sunflowers, wheat, maize, beef and timber.

The local village is a short walk away (although not visible) and is very attractive, but is small and without shops. These can be found 5 kms away with a large supermarket 12 kms away. Access to the A89 motorway takes 10 minutes. To reach Bergerac airport takes 30 minutes. Cabling for electricity and telephone is underground (no pylons).

The property is approached by a well maintained metalled chemin which ends at the property (no passing traffic)
