Aquitaine, Gironde (33)

€450,000 ID: 153998

Countryside estate including 300m of river frontage with views to medieval Duras Chateau and hilltop bastille village just a 2 min drive (15min walk).

In the opposite direction only 5 min drive is Monségur another bastille town with wonderful walks around its ramparts on the river.
Both these villages have amenities including a cinema, shops, excellent eateries and cafes and all year day and summer night markets and many events and only just under 1 hour to Bordeaux and 45 mins to Bergerac cities and airports.

In idyllic countryside this estate offers a tranquil setting at the end of its own private track though woods to the gated entrance which opens up to the Maison de Maître sitting back from the Old Mill House on the edge of the river. The land has water and electricity points making it ready for a small camping site on the property that will cater to fishing holidays on the river. The property also lends itself to being a superb equestrian destination, with an equestrian centre only 3 kms away. Wooded borders along with the river surround the estate and a private road gives seclusion to this wonderful serene sit. There is a small island, two water wells, electricity generating possibilities from the mill and ancient trees perfect for a tree house. The land has been undulated towards the outflow to river which elevates any flooding issues.

Maison de Maître has original four bedrooms, (two ensuite) two reception rooms, countryside kitchen, a perfect family home or run as a successful holiday business. The original walled courtyard could be rebuilt to extend the house which is currently used as a large outdoor patio that has a above ground swimming pool. The large floored and windowed attic would also convert to make further accommodation in the main house. There are original wooden beams, stone fire place and an animal trough as well as an indoor well.
