Built in the 19th Century and previously owned by the same family for over 150 years, Le Manoir is a sympathetically restored château set in the heart of the Perigord Vert. Renovated throughout, this country estate offers the very finest local craftmanship and quality fittings.
The chateau comprises on the ground floor: a spacious and welcoming reception-hall, a fully equipped modern kitchen with solid stone countertops, a tower room and three elegant reception-rooms each with french doors opening to a south-facing terrace. The well-proportioned laundry-room, WC and office complete the downstairs accommodation. A central passageway that neatly connects both wings of the house contains many original features including the exquisite period covings and architraves. The grand spiral staircase leads up to the first floor where four double bedrooms all with modern-fitted bathrooms await. A housekeeping room offers ample storage for spare linen and towels on this level. Continuing up to the second floor you will be greeted by a large reception area flanked by two stunning penthouse bedroom suites. Access out from this rooftop level to two secure terraces offering sumptuous panoramic views!
The nearby guardian’s cottage is discreetly positioned out of eye shot and consists of a large modern fitted kitchen/diner, lounge with stone fireplace and on each level a spacious bedroom each with its own modern fitted bathroom. The cottage has its own private garden and entertaining area.
An enclosed south-facing heated swimming pool has traditional stone paving and a statement vaulted wood-framed covered terrace with summer kitchen, open fire, shower and WC.
A substantial two-storied barn offers a cinema and recreation area along with workshops and a further office. Roadside access to a large integral garage. A second traditional Perigourdine barn easily accommodates the annual supply of heating wood for the chateau-sourced from the village scierie.
Within the picturesque gardens of two acres are sculpted shrubs, raised beds and fruit trees. A decorative hexagonal pigeonnier and two functioning wells complete the offering. The chateau and cottage have fibre internet connections and are both fully double-glazed. Both properties are serviced by mains drains.
