The property is just a few minutes along the river from Penne d'Agenais, and is accessed via electric gates to a parking area for 2-3 cars. As soon as you step out of the car, you are looking down the garden onto the River Lot below. The level of this
river is strictly controlled and therefore varies only sligthtly.
A decorative wrought iron pergola with gate leads to the terraces around the house. The accommodation is bright, beautifully presented and quite obviously completed with the highest standards in mind: oak floors, pine beams, double glazing, superior insulation, electric shuters all round.
This was a boathouse to the nearby chateau in years gone by, and the style has been maintained. The bright living room (20m2)with oak flooring and high ceilings, open to the rafters, benefits from full width patio doors opening out to terraces overlooking the River Lot. There is a modern woodburning fireplace insert. A glazed door leads to the covered dining terrace (12m2) with panoramic views along the Lot.
The kitchen is both spacious and very well fitted and equipped, and opens to a sunny breakfast terrace overlooking the garden.
Double bedroom 1 (14m2) has a French window to the dining terrace and views to the Lot, attractive oak flooring, beamed ceilings and a shower and WC.
Double bedroom 2 (12m2) has oak flooring, beamed ceilings and a modern en suite bathroom. There is an occasional bedroom 3 upstairs, with low ceilings ( suitable for children) and air conditioning.
Outside, wide stairs lead down the garden and around to the stone slabbed terrace in front of the house. Patio door access to the lower and very spacious (30m2) bedroom 4 or second living room. This has oak flooring, views over the garden to the river and an en suite walk-in shower room.
On this level is the delightful indoor swimming pool. The pool is heated, salt water, mosaic tiled and measures 7m x 2m, and the pool room itself is climate controlled. There is a changing room and door out to the gardens.
The gardens of some 700m2 are mature, with fruit trees, figs and lawns and surround the house. There is a garden shed and car port at the front. The garden is fenced off from the river by a gated wrought/galvanised fence. Steps down to the 20m2 tiled BBQ deck directly overlooking the river. A lovely spot for entertaining. A gate leads one level down to the boat jetty. Why not keep a boat here for pottering along the river?
