Price: € 395,000. An immaculately maintained and fully renovated stone house dating back to the 16th century. With views over the Dordogne river the property is set in the pretty village of Mauzac within walking distance to amenities including restaurant, grocery store & "depôt du pain" (daily bread delivery), post office, library, and sailing club.
Facing on to the river, has four bedrooms and three bathrooms including a bright and spacious master bedroom with a balcony, ideal for breakfast with views over the river whilst enjoying the rising sun.
Entering through the front courtyard gate, with cherry, crab apple, creeping thyme and a selection of shrubs, the ground floor entrance leads into a large dining room with typical Périgourdine features, including exposed stone walls, chestnut beams, a working stone fireplace and solid oak flooring.
Two stone openings give access to the fully fitted beech kitchen which has a double electric oven/grill, ceramic hob, extractor fan, polished wood work surfaces, oak flooring and ample storage space. It is light and bright and the 1.25 sink looks out over the pretty terrace and organic garden.
From the kitchen both the workshop and garage may be accessed. The garage has room for one car, with cleverly constructed inspection pit, and the workshop is used as a utility space as well as storage for gas boiler and water softener.
On the first floor is a very light living room with 2 french doors looking out over the river view. The open fireplace, warm oak flooring and exposed stonework makes for a very cosy atmosphere.
From the living room doorways lead to the master bedroom with balcony and en-suite bathroom and dressing area, and a second bedroom and bathroom.
On the second floor there are two further bedrooms, one with mansarded beams and a dormer window overlooking the river, a large shower room and storage space leading to the attic.
From the garden, there is access to the separate annexe with an office with a stone fireplace, exposed stonework and beams and an artist's studio with a fireplace and bright light from a velux window.
The beautiful organic garden at the rear of the property includes numerous flowering shrubs, plants and trees which the owners have cleverly planted to ensure there is always something flowering in the garden at all times. A plum, apple and 2 pear trees complete the garden and the stone walls and back of the house are covered in beautiful climbing roses from early Spring to late Autumn.

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.
- Less then 40 minutes from Bergerac airport, 1.5 hours from Brive airport, 2 hours from Bordeaux airport/TGV station and 2.5 hours from Toulouse airport.
- In the village of Mauzac with brasserie/café, year round grocery store with depôt de pain, post office, library, sailing club, church, Mairie, Primary School and small railway station with several daily return trains to Bordeaux and Bergerac.
