Set in over 2 acres of beautiful and easily maintained level parkland with mill pond and frontage to the River Menoire, this stunning property was originally a walnut and cornmill.

The airport at Brive is only 45 minutes away and other local airports are Limoges and Bergerac. There are two golf courses in the area also.
Approaching the property through private gates and crossing the small river over a pretty bridge you immediately feel the beauty of the property and its grounds. The property is approached by a gravel drive with an open car port next to the garage/utility room both attached to the main house.
