This remarkable property is currently self funding and offers various possibilities for the new owners, ranging from private home to B and B to gîtes, as well as the equestrian option, continuing the locally well-known English foodstore business and campsite to the rear which has 5 pitches.
The property is conveniently located on the edge of the bustling market town of Montguyon. Bordeaux airport is only 50 min, Angoulême is 1 hour, Bergerac airport is 1:30 hour away.
The property is also 40 min from the St Emilion vineyards and 1 hour from the Médoc vineyards.
The property has 2 separate driveways - one leads to the manor and the other to the shop and stables.
The manor itself has its own spacious enclosed garden with a terrace, a bar and a salt water pool. A magnificent magnolia tree shades the lawn which has a pond with a fountain.
The main door opens onto a generous 20 M² hallway with staircase going upstairs. There and in the 51 M² L-shaped formal sitting / dining room to the left, the floor is genuine cement tiling.
Right of the hallway, the kitchen was completely refitted to accommodate a large family (26 M²).
The stairs from the hallway go up half a storey, where 2 bedrooms (22 and 35 m²) are to be found, the larger with an ensuite bathroom and open fireplace.
Up another half storey, and there are 2 further bedrooms (31 and 20 m²) with ensuite bathrooms, the smaller bedroom housing the tower with parquet wooden floor and stained glass windows - on the the many amazingly ornate features this place has to offer.
Behind the manor, half of a huge barn has been converted into a 2 floor living space, connected to the manor on the upper floor through a mezzanined corridor featuring 2 more bedrooms (20 m²) and a complete bathroom.
The mezzanine overlooks a family living room, impressive by its size (75 m²), connected to the kitchen through a huge pantry/storage area.
This living room also has a door to the food shop so when customers arrive, access is simple and speedy.
The food shop consists of 2 rooms (37 and 26 m²), one with 11 x 300 L freezers and the other with canned goods.
There are another 7 x 300 L stock freezers in the barn.
The other half of the barn is open to conversion, potentially offering a further gite.
The outbuildings are as follow:-
- an apartment (30 m²) attached to the manor with separate entrance, comprising small kitchen, shower room, sitting room and bedroom
- a 3 room independent house (50 m²) with covered BBQ area
- a 3 room independent house, possibly dating from the 17th century (100 m²), with private garden and pool
- 2 series of stables, 6 boxes in all

The land totals 2 hectares (around 5 acres), including gardens, with a stretch planted with young pine trees. Currently, there's a good size playground and a parking area.
To the rear of the stable is the campsite, which has been provided with power supplies and water for 5 pitches.
The manor is heated with 2/3 wood burners.
Most windows have been changed to PVC double glazed.
The roofs of all living spaces have been thoroughly insulated. Water softener for the manor.
The shop has air conditioning and video alarm, there's an alarm on the driveway as well.
All told, this property offers an interesting investment opportunity as well as a really exceptional place to live.
