This is a great opportunity to purchase a most charming farmhouse in the final stage of restoration. It has plenty of character and many of the original features have been faithfully and sympathetically retained.
It comprises the main house, part of which is already being used as a one bedroom apartment, with the remainder of the house to finish off. The roof is new and all windows throughout are new and double glazed. New plumbing and electrics are all in place. It comes with a range of barns and over 1 acre of grounds.
The options are open to adapt the restoration so that the property could either provide a thriving B & B business with gites or just a spacious family home or even both. From the point of view of running a B & B business the property could benefit from being next to one of the famous Camino pilgrim routes to the Compostela de Santiago in northern Spain.
It is situated on the edge of a popular village in the Lot only 2 minutes walk from the nearest boulangerie and a thriving restaurant and between the larger villages of Limogne en Quercy and Lalbenque famous for their truffle markets. The riverside towns of Cahors, capital of the Lot, and Villefranche de Rouergue in the Aveyron are both within easy reach. Toulouse airport can be reached in 75 mins and Rodez in 60 mins.The ensemble of stone buildings are grouped around the courtyard.
From the courtyard there is an entrance to the ground floor apartment consisting of KITCHEN/DINING area (12 m²) BEDROOM with ensuite SHOWER (12 m²). Double glazed door to rear terrace and walled garden.
The MAIN HOUSE entrance is reached via the stone steps leading up to the ‘bolet’ or covered veranda, thence into a large open plan LIVING ROOM/KITCHEN (51.3 m²) with open fireplace and double aspect windows; there are no fittings in the kitchen area but all plumbing connections and wiring are all in place. INNER HALL leads to the unfitted WC and SHOWER ROOM. Steps lead up to a large room (25.5 m²) which would serve as an ensuite BEDROOM. From the living room there is another inner hallway with the original oak staircase leading down to the ground floor.
Large room (28 m²) with oak beamed ceiling and the original ‘souillard’ kitchen scullery complete with ancient stone sink ‘evier’. This could serve as the living room and kitchen. A second room (18.5 m²) adjoining could serve as a further bedroom ; UTILITY ROOM (9.5 m²) with hot water tank and door to the rear terrace.
OUTSIDEThe original piggery is attached to the main house and could serve as the woodshed.
The BARNS all have new roofs. BARN 1 (70 m²); BARN 2 (28.5 m²) with attached open fronted barn (16.4 m²).
The grounds consist of open parkland of around 1 acre (4,600 m²)
