Superbly restored character home near Gaillac in the Tarn, Tarn, Occitanie
This once dominate Chateau which dates back to the 12th century is now part of a small hamlet made up of several distinctive white stone houses mainly grouped around the grassed centre square. The property itself has been completely rebuilt in 1996 using original materials throughout. The property offers a spacious south facing dining terrace, which looks directly across the vineyards. Close to the wine-growing centre of Gaillac, a thriving market town providing all amenities. The fascinating bastide town of Castelnau also lies within easy reach and the auto route from Gaillac will take you to Toulouse airport within three quarters of an hour and Albi is around 30 minutes from the property.
THE ACCOMMODATION The property has been maintained to a very high standard offering around 190 sqm of living space, with 4 good sized bedrooms, two bathrooms (one ensuite) large open plan fully fitted kitchen, dining room and lounge with stone fireplace and a wood burning stove, as well as oil fired central heating and small stone balcony, separate cosy lounge and a bureau. In the floor is a featured small wine store-converted from an old grain silo. The added bonus is the large terrace of around 70 sqm with magnificent views across the valley and Jacuzzi. Every room in this impressive renovation offers heaps of original features, such as exposed stone walls, terracotta floor tiles, exposed beams, original evier and stone fire place. The blend of old and new ensures that modern comforts are well integrated such as wooden framed doubled glazed French doors in the lounge, oil fired central heating and the whole house has been insulated, to ensure that it meets the high requirements of today energy needs.
NO GARDEN BUT ... Although the property has no garden it is completely surrounded by open countryside. There are great walks to be had just outside the front door of the property. The whole area is non constructible, so the views and walks are here to stay.
