Gorgeous Ancient stone Presbytery with 6 bedrooms, " bedroom gite, outbuildings and pool close to the hilltop villqge of Bruniquel, Tarn-et-Garonne, Occitanie
Delightful historic country property with 7 bedrooms, outbuildings and a swimming pool. This beautiful property is situated in outstanding countryside, with a pool, well maintained gardens, two wells and a lake, all within easy reach of a village with all amenities. The main house is an ancient stone former Presbytery with five main bedrooms (all en-suite) together with a renovated stone chapel with the two buildings joined and separated by a cloistered courtyard. The roofing was extensively refurbished some 10 years ago, as was the plumbing, electrics and the heating. In addition to the 790m² of heated accommodation, there is a further 200m² of additional garage, workshop and storage space which could be easily converted to create 2 gites, one with 4 bedrooms , the second with 2 bedrooms. Furthermore , there are 70 ha of adjacent land consisting of meadows and woods which could be acquired by separate negotiation. The local hilltop fortified village of Bruniquel is largely unspoiled. Atop the village, are two ancient castles that look down on to the river Aveyron as it enters a deep and beautiful limestone gorge, that in turn meanders its way to the ancient market town of St Antonin Noble Val, some 20 kilometres distant. Toulouse and its airport are one hour away and the autoroute to Paris, Bordeaux and the Mediterranean (with links en route to skiing in Andorra), is just a 25 minutes drive away. A wide range of TGV train services are available from Toulouse towards Paris and Southern France but a new route is shortly to be opened which will further reduce rail travelling times to Paris, Brussels and London.
