Imposing 18th century mansion

My house is in the middle of Riberac. Its facade greets you at the top of a short incline from the main square. You enter via a short flight of steps through double front doors into a large chandelier-lit, tiled hall with the main reception rooms to right and left. The electric gates to the left of the house take you into a 35 metre long courtyard with parking for five cars which is also accessed from the house by various French windows.

There are two areas for dining al fresco and two indoors. All accommodate 12 people.

At the end of the courtyard is a very large barn converted into a games room with table tennis, darts and table football.
Outside this, there is a long terrace from which the garden rises through a grassy parterre and rose beds to a wooded area with winding paths, which give superb views over Riberac and the surrounding countryside. This terrace has an electric awning and is furnished with tiled etageres and a 12–seater dining table.
To the left, the heated pool (10m x 5m x 1.40m) has an alarm and a rolling cover simply-operated by a nearby electric switch if child safety is a concern. Around the pool are comfortable sun loungers and at the end of the tiled surround there is a gazebo.

The house is spacious with numerous nooks and crannies and has been recently luxuriously refurbished to a high standard. It sleeps 10 in various permutations in five bedrooms all completely differently decorated. Three are en suite and there are two additional bathrooms and two separate toilets.

There is a television room with a 127cm screen and free sat. In addition to the grand salon which has ample seating for 12, the study provides a quiet environment behind closed doors for those who want to/have to work. There is wi-fi throughout and an i-pod station in the salon.

The kitchen is electric, with double sink, American fridge, fridge, deepfreeze, dishwasher and microwave. The kitchen table seats 12 for informal meals when you don’t want to use the very elegant, traditionally-furnished dining room next door.

The utility room has a washing machine, tumble drier, iron and ironing board.
