Character stone farmhouse in 12 acres in a rural spot of the Lot et Garonne, Lot-et-Garonne, Nouvelle Aquitaine
This characterful and isolated stone farmhouse with a barn, is peacefully set in 12 acres at the end of a long country lane, situated near the bastide village of Beauville in the Lot et Garonne. The lovely market town of Beauville with shops and restaurant is just 10 mins away, while Toulouse and Bergerac airports are approx. 70 mins drive.
An interesting building, dating from medieval times (mullioned window, arrow slits etc..) and offering surprisingly spacious, rustic accommodation with central heating.
Entrance is made via arched doorway to a large, beamed country kitchen ( 6.8m x 5.8m) with old terracotta tiled floor, monumental stone fireplace with woodburning stove. Steps up to a spacious living room ( 7.0m x 5.2m) with wooden floor, beamed ceiling and far reaching views to the countryside. Stairs up to bedroom 1 ( 4.0m x 5.8m) with wooden floor and sloping ceiling. 2 further small bedrooms of 3m x 3m and 3.3m x 2.5m. with views. Below the living room is an ancient wine cellar.
There is a wood structure extension to the side of the house which houses the modern tiled bathroom, and a large studio room ( 8.9m x 5.2m) . This room has several French windows, is bright and could well be converted to the master bedroom which the property currently lacks.
The attached stone barn (70 sqm) has been partly converted and would be easy to finish to create an independent guest cottage (subject to planning). The property looks out to an acre or two of grassland leading to a wooded hill, and is further surrounded by its 12 acres, mostly oak woodland.
A delightful property in a peaceful setting with plenty of land and wood ...
