In the low country of the French department of Corrèze, on the outskirts of a village which is an integral part of the urban area around Brive-la Gaillarde, the origins of which date back to the Middle-Ages. This site, closely linked to the history of France, was the residence of an influential chapter.
A slip road for the A20 motorway puts Paris some 4½ hours away, whilst Toulouse and Bordeaux are less than 2 hours away. In addition to its train station, the subprefecture of Corrèze has a new airport with flights to Great Britain and to Holland.
Brive’s shopping centres are but 5 minutes away by car.
The site is ideal for exploring and visiting the fabulous natural and historic heritage of the Upper Quercy, Black Perigord and Lower Limousin regions: the Dordogne and the Vézère valleys, the Grands-Causses Park, the Medieval towns of Martel, Turenne, Collonges, Saint-Robert, Terrasson, Rocamadour and Sarlat, as well as the sinkholes, including that of Padirac, and countless castles.
This building, constructed in the 16th century for members of the clergy, is currently classified, for its exterior and its interior, on the French Supplementary Historic Monument List. Its architecture is typical of the regional style: dressed sandstone, slate roof, ceilings with exposed beams and joists as well as oak wood roofing framework rafters that form the truss. The building comprises a central dwelling flanked by two wings. The first, the end of which is flanked with buttresses, comprises a large porch way with two semi-circular arches facing one another, as well as a loggia on the first level. The second is constructed on lower sections via which it is possible to access a suite of cellars, some of which are vaulted. A rectangular stairway tower stands in the inner corner formed by the two buildings.
It spans approx. 363 m² of living space (excluding the lower sections, the cellars and the attic space, which could be partially converted). This carefully restored residence still has all of its character and authenticity: an outstanding half-turning stairway with monolithic stone steps, monumental fireplaces, two of which dating from the Renaissance era are extremely beautiful, a stone sink, wall recesses, exposed beam systems supported by stone corbels, original doors, etc. The spacious rooms are bathed in light and their layout is such that they could be divided into independent areas.
This residence has undergone restoration works which are highly successful, not only from a decorative point of view but also in terms of comfort and layout: features from its rich past have been cleverly enhanced and thus contribute to its authentic, refined air. The pleasant, unobstructed view that is provided by the property is not, however, spectacular and the peace and quiet that reigns outside the dwelling can sometimes be disturbed. This is because this country house is on the periphery of an urban area and, therefore, in direct contact with the town. This location will, above all, appeal to those seeking to live in natural surroundings, whilst having the benefit of discreet neighbours and the advantages of a large town. Brive-la-Gaillarde is, in this respect, a town that is both charming and dynamic, a true regional crossroads between the Limousin, Aquitaine and Midi-Pyrénées regions. Surrounded by numerous magnificent cultural and natural sites, it also constitutes a first-rate tourist attraction.
