originally built with a small fortune amassed in the californian goldfields in the early 19th c this property would suit many and varied uses. it would make a fantastic large family home with multi generation occupancy, a great gite business, an up market b&b, a business running courses in varied subjects in the numerous outbuildings allied to the accommodation or indeed maybe an investor looking to buy and rent properties here in this wonderful area of sw france. centrally located in a small village which has a mini market open 7 days a week, a post office, cafe and garage the property sits above the village and enjoys wonderful views of the valley and village as well as on to the pic du midi.
the core of what is offered here is the main masters house, a character 4 bedroomed property with lots of character, plaster overmantels, wainscoting, pyrenean marble fireplaces, and well proportioned rooms with high ceilings and plaster rosettes. the property features a small office, dining room, sitting room, scullery, kitchen , separate w.c. and shower room all on the ground floor. the first floor has 4 well sized bedrooms, 3 on the south side of the house with fine views and a smaller bedroom and library to the north, there is a house shower room here and plenty of possibilities to create bedroom suites with the available space.
all three houses intercommunicate which as a family home or luxury b&b is ideal however the properties could all be divided and reinstated as properties in their own right.
the smallest of the three properties sits to the west of the main house, it is accessed from the main house either on the ground floor under a covered arch or via a first floor landing. on the ground floor there is a small sitting room, medium sized kitchen/diner separate w.c. and shower room. the first floor has two medium sized bedrooms, both looking south and large workshop/ store which is directly above the kitchen and shower room and w.c. and would therefore be a suitable and inexpensive area to convert into a separate 1st floor bathroom, or a master en suite.
the remaining property of the three has a well sized kitchen/diner with direct access to the large barn/garage which adjoins it and door to the north to a parking area and covered wood store. next to this parking area is a small workers cottage which is sound but in need of complete renovation and could offer further accommodation or maybe a separate office, workshop or studio. staying on the ground floor we find a sitting room with fireplace and an access through to the main house via the office.
to the first floor are two well sized bedroom suites both south facing with the bathrooms to the north.
all of the above properties are immediately and comfortably habitable as they are but still allow scope for the new owners to stamp their mark.
to the south of all three properties is a large terrace with a superb lime tree, recently pollarded to bring more light to the facade, there is vehicular access to the east and a gated foot access to the west. below this terrace is a store/garage built into the rockface.
to the north of the property apart from the cottage already mentioned above is a second vehicular access to the garden, a garage who's roof needs attention, a pig sty with chicken coop above, a large wine store/barn and above this all a first floor barn ripe for conversion. the garden itself is large enough to take a pool with plenty room for flower borders and decking.
if all of this is still not enough and you really want to grow your own veggies to supply your table and that of your friends and guests there is also a flat piece of land of two acres bordering the local river which would make a perfect veggie garden, this land is a 5 minute walk from the property, currently overgrown.
add to this the historical context of the region, the sporting and cultural delights, the good food and warm welcome, not to mention the fantastic weather and this really does sound like a little slice of paradise. do not hesitate to call me, jonathan benn on for further information and an early appointment to visit.
