This beautiful south facing stone farmhouse (250 m²) has been recently renovated to a high standard throughout, retaining many original features. It must be one of the most beautifully presented properties we have seen in a long time. It’s immaculate.
The property is set in a charming and picturesque hamlet in the commune of St. Projet. The home has 3 ensuite bedrooms and a built in double bed on the mezzanine creating the 4th bedroom. There is a large, stylish and modern fitted kitchen with a striking open plan, double height dining area with views into the garden. Oil fired underfloor heating throughout makes the house feel very cosy in the winter and there are two wood-burners for additional ambience. The property includes a lovely sunny detached guest house (96 m²) with 1 bedroom, 2 bathrooms and a garden/dining room. There are open views across the beautiful gardens from the patio doors and large windows.
Situated next to the swimming pool (12m x 5m) is an additional modern building (135 m²) insulated and partially finished internally. It is currently used recreationally but it could easily be developed into a further 2 bedroom house if required.
The whole property sits in a fully enclosed 3187 m² garden with electric gates on the driveway. The garden is landscaped with established flowering plants and cherry, plum, fig, walnut and hazelnut trees that look beautiful in the summer. There are open views across fields from the back of the garden and it is a very private and tranquil space.
There is a double garage with an electric door, a 2.9m x 2.6m wood store and a covered store that houses bicycles. There is a separate pool pump house.
St. Projet is a traditional and beautifully kept village with a chateau, community bar on Sunday mornings, a further bar open most days and evenings and a post office and library. St. Projet has a full calendar of social activities throughout the year, including the famous Giant Omelette Festival.
There are 2 boulangeries and shops within 4km of the house and also 2 very good restaurants. In the village of Parisot (10 mins drive) there is a leisure lake, campsite, restaurants, bars, bakery, shops, doctors, pharmacy, beauty salon and a lively nightlife. Parisot hosts an international literary festival and an arts festival every year. There are weekly local farmers markets in Villefranche de Rouergue (20 mins drive), Limogne (10 mins drive) and Caylus (10 mins drive). In Villefranche de Rouergue there is a railway station, several large supermarkets, lots of restaurants, shops and bars. Toulouse airport can be reached via the A20 autoroute in 75 mins.
This stunning property really needs to be seen in person to reveal its special character. It's ideal for guest/letting accommmodation for the extra income.
