Dordogne. Saint Martial D'artenset (24700). Character Six-Bedroom Village House with Potential Development Opportunities
Ref. CD-3062 This superb stone-built longère is nestled in the heart of Saint Martial d'Artenset, a rural commune in the beautiful Isle valley conveniently located between the ancient Gallo-Roman city of Périgueux and the vineyards of Saint-Émilion. The cities of Bergerac and Bordeaux are also within easy reach, making it a perfect base for wine connoisseurs or for anyone who wishes to explore the heritage, culture, countryside and gastronomy of the Périgord.
The property can be found close to the Mairie and the 9th century Église Saint Martial. Historically, it once housed the commune's boulangerie, but it now presents as a spacious, light-filled family home which benefits from an extremely versatile layout.
Approaching the property, you really begin to feel the character of the place. Double gates lead to a large courtyard and garden with ample parking for several cars. The main entrance to the house is currently via an attractive kitchen measuring 18.5 m². A door to the right opens onto a living room and dining area of 17 m² and beyond that you will find a pretty, double aspect bedroom which measures 22.5 m².
Returning to the kitchen, a hallway to the left leads to two more ground floor bedrooms, both of which measure 12 m² and have large windows overlooking the courtyard, a shower room (4 m²) with an Italian shower, and a separate toilet. The hallway continues to a second, separate entrance from the courtyard, giving you the potential to close off this area of the property to create a secondary housing unit or gîte.
From the second entrance, a door to the left leads to a reception area of 9 m² which currently doubles as an office, where you will also find a useful laundry room and utility area. Beyond this space is a bright and airy double aspect lounge (38 m²) which is fitted with a wood burner, giving the room a cosy lived-in feel. Above the wood burner is the original door to the bread oven, a discreet nod to the property's interesting past. A door to the rear of the room leads out to the tranquil garden and helps create a fantastic flow between the indoors and outdoors.
A wooden staircase leads from the reception area to the first floor, where you will find a large landing and three further bedrooms measuring 22 m², 14 m² and 7.5 m². The largest bedroom is double aspect and benefits from a large picture window overlooking the garden and a walk-in wardrobe. The second bedroom also overlooks the garden while the third one has an en-suite shower room and toilet. There is also a bathroom with a luxurious spa bath, a hobby room (11 m²), a playroom (17 m²) and an attic space (27 m²).
A new and very efficient 11 kW air-to-water heat pump was fitted in 2019 and the property is on mains drainage. Photovoltaïque solar panels on the west facing roof generate an additional income of around 1 000 euros which we understand is sufficient to cover the owner's annual electricity bill.
Attached to the property is a garage (22 m²), a workshop (23 m²) and a woodstore (21 m²) all of which could be repurposed with the relevant permissions. The property sits on a plot of 2 490 m² and the south facing rear garden contains beautiful outdoor eating areas, a gazebo, a fish pond, a productive orchard with numerous varieties of fruit trees, a well and a glorious sun terrace built into the side of the bread oven, thus preserving many of its original features. We also understand that the Mairie is open to the suggestion of building another house on the site of the orchard, which offers even more possibilities.
The property is a few steps away from a popular bar and restaurant, a boulangerie, a Post Office and a hairdresser. Supermarkets, banks and other day-to-day amenities, including a railway station with trains to Bordeaux, Libourne and Pèrigueux can be found in nearly Montpon-Mènèsterol, just a five-minute drive away. The popular Moulin du Duellas where you can cruise the river Isle aboard a traditional gabare is also a five minutes drive away, while the Forêt de la Double, which offers various other possibilities for relaxation, can be reached in 20 minutes. The nearest airports are Bergerac Dordogne Pèrigord (46 km) and Bordeaux-Mèrignac (93 km).
