The house is approached up a flight of steps to a terrace and front door. This opens onto a large, light and airy open-plan reception, living area and kitchen on the main floor occupying the full footprint of the house of 90m² (968 sq ft) and finely floored in oak. There is also a discreetly placed wc, a large walk-in larder and a back door opening onto a decorative wrought iron staircase giving access to the garden and pool. On the floor above, which is made from bamboo, are two matching en suite double bedrooms, one with a walk-in dressing room. Between the bedrooms is a stitting area with a double sofa bed, library and study area. In the basement is a games room and sitting area of 35m² (376 sq ft) opening onto the garden, together with a laundry and wine storage area. The basement also offers evidence of the property's past of wine production with two enormous wine vats set into the wall retained as a decorative feature. There is a saparate study below the terrace at the front of the house. The main floor and the bedrooms are linked by a handsome solid oak staircase.
The barn features a strikingly picturesque traditional exposed timbered roof whose old beams have been carefully preserved as part of the restoration of the whole roof. In order to preserve the full experience of the roof, a bedroom module has been constructed below it within the barn offering two spacious bedrooms of 26m² (280 sq ft) each with a shower room and wc of 10m² (107sq ft) and 13m² (139 sq ft) respectively. The flat roof of this module offers a large mezzanine of 90m² (968 sq ft) ripe for further development. It is linkded to the main area by spiral straircase. Beside the bedroom module, the tiled barn floor offers a large reception, sitting and games area also of 90m². The barn also features a highly efficient modern wood burning stove, 20kw, of traditional appearance.

Including Agency fees of 6% to be paid by the Buyer.
This superbly restored and converted property consists of a large house, a large barn and a separate open barn all of quercy stone, together with a swimming pool and a boules court, set in just under two hectares (almost five acres) of land. The house and barn between them offer four en suite double bedrooms, but there is ample scope for further development. The house is apporached from the road by a short curved drive into a gravelled courtyard whose other three sidees are formed by the house, the barn and the open bar. The property is furnished with taste throughout and the furnishings are included in the sale.


The location is particularly pleasing, on the edge of a quiet hamlet on slightly elevated ground commanding views of the surrounding countryside. It is at five minute drive from a village offering among other amenities an outstanding local café-bar-restaurant and eight minutes from the lovely village of Montcuq.


The open barn has recently had the roof replaced with reclaimed tiles as well as new beams. It is beautifully positioned, being parallel to the house and offers another games, entertaining and dining area in the much needed shade on hot sunny days. There are original, lockable storage areas at either end.
The pool has been thoughtfully situated looking out over the largest part of the land attached to this property a broad meadow including a spinney of timber and a row of fine mature cypress trees. Falling ground at the end of the pool rises again in a south-west facing slope, presumably once a vineyard, to the spinney. The effect is of an infinity pool giving onto an unspoilded view of meadow and trees.




Water, electricity, gas central heating (in the house), wood burning stove (in the barn), septic tank, landline and broadband and double glazing throughout the barn, the basement and upper floor of the house. DPE IN PROGRESS
