THE PRICE IS REDUCED for this CHARISMATIC HIDEAWAY. This property consists of an entire, beautiful, lush valley of over 30 HECTARES OF FOREST, parkland and meadows, WITH YOUR OWN TRUFFLE FARM, lake and stream. Both sides of the valley, and beyond, form part of the property: there are no roads or other properties visible and no rights of way, so you are assured of complete privacy. Through the length of the property runs a stream from a natural source at the head of the valley that constantly feeds into three lakes: great for swimming in the summer. Dating from the pre-Napoleonic era (possibly 400 years old) the gorgeous natural stone buildings consist of the main 'maison de maitre', an original barn, a delightful pigeonnier and an attached 'sechoir', formerly used for drying plums.
Access is by your own private drive of over 300m that passes only through land belonging to the property.
The main house (ca. 140m2) and sechoir (ca. 40m2) have been recently renovated and retain their original features including natural limestone walls inside and out, huge fireplace and oak beams. The house has three spacious bedrooms and two bathrooms, with lounge and kitchen/diner; the sechoir contains an open plan space and a bathroom. The barn has about 120 m2 surface area and could easily be developed into living accommodation on two floors. The buildings, being situated on the northern slope of the valley, are bathed in sunlight all day from the South. Views are in all directions, across your own valley to the South, East and West, where it opens up to the distant, beautiful countryside. There is a further garage in natural limestone at the entrance to the property. On the other side of the valley is the ruin of an old stone house and outbuildings.
This property is a dream for lovers of undisturbed nature.
