The Périgord is known worldwide for its thousand-plus-years of history and its châteaux, churches and manoirs from many periods of times gone by; through Roman Art to the Renaissance, Middle ages to the Modern Era. This property celebrates these snapshots in time and a focus on history ... a place where time stops and allows for reflection.

On over 10 000 m2 (2.5 acres) of manicured gardens, this home dating back to the time of the Knights Templar, tells an amazing story. It was built as an Armory, it served to stock weapons for the Templars and was fortified to protect its contents. The outbuildings were used for agricultural activities and the foundation of an ancient chapel is apparent at the front of the property. It benefits from dominating, spectacular views, that reach as far as the hills of Saussignac and Montbazillac.

The property has been repurposed over the years as a lovely family home, with exceptional space to accommodate many friends and relatives. With no less than 10 bedrooms (including a dormatory-sized space), a living room with 'Cathedral' ceilings, a bar and game room, kitchen and wine cellar.

This lovely home is bright, with large window-doors in the main living areas, windows and skylights in the bedrooms. Defense loopholes (balistraria) are present in many parts of the main house. Beautiful brick and stone walls are evident throughout, lending to its authentic and warm feel. Functional fireplace.

A spacious outbuilding (250m2 footprint) includes a tobacco drying barn, livable space (renovation-ready) with a kitchen and dormitory could be the ideal location for a gîte, storage space, or a collection of classic cars.
The grounds measure over 1 hectare and are surrounded by stately hedges containing fruit trees, mature trees, and an in-ground swimming pool (11.5 m x 5 m).
