A substantial old stone Millhouse with active stream, very pretty gardens and 10m x 5m pool located within walking distance of the market town of Le Bugue. Arranged over three floors, the owners currently run a successful gite business by renting out two discreet parts of the property although the property also lends itself to be returned to its former glory of an imposing Mill house with central turned wood staircase.
On the ground floor a tiled hallway with the two storey staircase giving access to all floors. On this level is a spacious one bedroom suite with open plan sitting/kitchen/dining room, large double bedroom and modern shower room with Wc. All rooms have French doors to the outside overlooking the garden and stream opposite.
The central part of the property may be accessed via the main wooden staircase, by an outdoor stone staircase to the rear of the property or alternatively via stone steps which lead up to a very large outdoor terrace giving access to the main kitchen. On this level is a delightful guest suite with exposed beams, large windows overlooking the gardens, a compact kitchen and a good sized bedroom with ensuite shower room. A door leads out to the rear of the property with shady terrace. Also on this level is the main part of the property which consists of a lovely sunny summer room with glazed windows overlooking the grounds, pine floor, lime washed beams and wood burning stove; a more formal sitting room with large windows overlooking the garden; a well equipped kitchen with a good selection of wall and base units and door leading directly out to the large dining terrace; a double bedroom with built-in soft close dressing units; and shower room with Wc.
On the top floor a further guest suite completes the property which consists of open plan sitting/kitchen/dining room with large beams, ornamental fireplace, good size velux windows allowing maximum light and pine floor; a double bedroom and shower room with Wc.
Outside the grounds to the rear surround the property and include a 10m x 5m pool, two wood cabins and various relaxing and shady terraces. To the front of the property a tiny lane gives access to the house, allowing exit to be in either direction. On the other side of the lane is a lovely mill stream with a good selection of plant life and lots of mature trees. On this side of the grounds are two stables and a parking area.
In addition to parking opposite a very large covered parking area under the main property offers plenty of space for cars and lawn mower.

This property is based in the Dordogne (often referred to by its ancient name "The Périgord"). Although times may have changed over the years the beautiful Dordogne landscape, in one of the most beautiful areas of France, continues to offer something to amaze and delight everyone. This ancient land, deep in the heart of sunny south-west France, is perfect holiday country; a magical place that will reward all those who choose to explore it.
The Périgord Noir where the vast majority of our properties are located, is the 'Jewel in the Crown' of the Dordogne for here, in the triangle formed between the rivers Vézère and Dordogne, you will find the greatest concentration of natural wonders and historic sites, and the loveliest stretches of both rivers. The area is bounded by four famous towns and this property is well situated within this boundary - Sarlat, a medieval treasure house; Périgueux, a thriving and sophisticated small city; Bergerac, shippers of wine since the Middle ages and Monpazier, an extraordinarily well preserved bastide built by King Edward I in 1285.
Only 1.75km from the market town of Le Bugue with all amenities. Less then 1 hour from Bergerac airport, 1.5 hours from Brive airport, 2.5 hours from Bordeaux airport/TGV station and 2.5 hours from Toulouse airport.
