Stunning 13th century house in one of most beautiful bastide villages in France

Price: € 319 000 | Ref.: 3753 | Views: 296

This deceptively large, semidetached village house (248.6 sqm), built about 1286, is in the heart of the popular bastide (fortified town) village. This spacious, versatile, comfortable home is ideal for year round family living, a ‘lock & leave’ property, investment rental opportunity, or a wonderful vacation home for those wanting to get out of the big city but still have all amenities available. Monpazier is certainly the most famous and best preserved Bastide in the Perigord. Founded in 1284, Monpazier will dive you better than any other in the mood of the Middle Ages! The natural areas surrounding Monpazier (its forests, with more than 200 km of marked hiking trails) allow for beautiful walks in a magnificent setting. This is a unique opportunity to own a piece of history.

Description

The entrance to the house is on the famous Carreyrou du Chapitre (“carreyroux” are pedestrian walkways throughout the village). The ground floor (44 sqm) has a beautiful entry foyer, a summer kitchen, and a sitting area with a large sliding window looking out onto the street, offering natural light and the beautiful ambience of natural sandstone. The summer kitchen is a wonderful convenience when grilling or entertaining outside, offering cabinets, a large sink with hot water, and plenty of space for a refrigerator and countertop appliances. Also on this floor are a newly renovated WC (2021), and a small workroom/boiler room. New floor tile was installed on the ground floor in 2020.

First Floor: The centuries-old elm stairs lead up from the ground floor to the first floor (108.3 sqm). The beautiful renovated open plan kitchen includes all top appliances: Refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, oven, microwave, and dual cooktops (both gas and electric). It is a chef’s dream kitchen, professionally designed, with ample counters, beautiful glass-front cabinets, stainless steel sink, large pantry cabinets and eat-in bar space. Two sliding doors into the kitchen keeps the space fully useable. A double window, and an additional window above the cooktop, provide plenty of natural light in the room. Flooring is solid oak.

A large salon of 40 sqm is to the right of the stairs, featuring a magnificent wood burning fireplace with the famous “Salamander” stone carving representing King Frances I, a great patron of the arts. This large room is perfect for entertaining, with ample space for a full-sized dining area in addition to sofas, comfy chairs, and a TV cabinet. Ceiling fan and a double window overlooking the beautiful courtyard complete this room. There are two bedrooms on this floor: the larger bedroom (16 sqm) features an original (non-functioning) fireplace, built-in closets, shelving, ceiling fan, and double-glazed shuttered double window. The smaller guest room (10.5 sqm), also has a double-glazed shuttered window. These two bedrooms could be converted into a roomy 26.5 sqm master bedroom, if so desired. There is a newly renovated family shower room complete with double sinks, large tiled shower and terra cotta floor tiles. Across from the bedrooms is a laundry room which has space for full-sized washer and dryer and a full sized wardrobe for linens. Oak parquet wooden floors complete this first floor.

Second Floor: The second floor (96.3 sqm) greets you with a newly renovated ( 2021) reading snug. There are two additional bedrooms on this floor: one very large bedroom (20.8 sqm, renovated in 2022), which would easily take a king size bed, enjoys a lovely view of Monpazier through the bedroom window, and also features two opening Velux skylights for plenty of light and ventilation. The smallest bedroom (10.1 sqm) takes a single bed and features an ensuite toilet and one Velux opening skylight. The ensuite WC also includes a bidet. There are three additional rooms which could be used as storage or additional bedrooms. They are currently used as a music recording studio, a storage area, and a workshop. These three rooms could benefit from renovation/updating, but are fully usable with electricity, heat, and light. There are a total of 9 skylights (7 opening Velux) across this floor to give lots of natural light. This attic floor is a large space and has vast potential!

Exterior

The house is located near the famous village square, the Place des Cornières, making it ideal for walking to all Monpazier restaurants, shops (hosting both Spar and Petit Casino markets), pharmacy, brewery/pub, and St Dominique Church. The carreyrou can be used for BBQing and for dining al fresco with family and friends. La Croquant Restaurant is the convenient downstairs neighbor with whom the home shares a co-propriete, but there are no condominium fees.

Other information

Roof maintenance was just recently completed (2021) installing a new waterproof cap on the ridge line and replacing several old and/or broken tiles. The house is on mains for water and sewage. Central oil-fired (Buderus) radiator heat in all main rooms on all three floors. Fully functional wood-burning fireplace in the salon. Kitchen, salon and bedroom windows are screened. Fast internet is available and a SKY dish is already mounted and available for service, if desired.
