According to the agent, this 1970s build is just outside the historic city of Perigueux and around an hour’s drive from Bergerac airport, which obviously caters for low-cost flights in and out of the area.

The house needs work, that much is obvious. But once you’ve cleared it out, we don’t think there’s too much that a new kitchen and bathroom couldn’t put right. The windows, the wood panels, the spiral staircase, the fireplace – all of the original canvas is still here. It probably just needs bringing up to date a little, which is really just about the decor.

There’s an entrance hallway at the ground floor level, which takes you to the ‘large and ultra-luminous salon’ with panoramic views across the extensive grounds. You’ll also have access to the kitchen with storage room, a ‘winter’ dining area, a ‘summer’ dining space (glazed area) and an office/snug.

A small lobby then takes you to two double bedrooms (both en-suite), with a spiral staircase (how very 1970s) leading to a separate apartment area with double bedroom, shower, separate WC, sitting room and kitchenette, a further large unused space (ready for conversion to something useful) and access to the large two-car garage.

As we mentioned, extensive grounds too, with the lawned area dotted with fruit trees. if all of that appeals, the asking price is around £403,000.
