A unique village home in the heart of the Lot, Lot, Occitanie
High on the Causse, in the heart of one of France's best loved regions is a delightfully quirky village property. Complete with a large barn and separate guest accommodation, the property could be a fabulous family home or a holiday home with revenue possibilities.
Sitting privately at the edge of the village, the house first appears to be a modern property. In fact, the main house was originally three small stone cottages dating back to 1860, which have been imaginatively renovated to create a comfortable two bedroomed house with lots of exposed stone and beamed ceilings.
From the large terraced seating area, which enjoys great views, entry is into a large dining kitchen with a recently installed wood pellet burner which keeps the house very cosy during the winter months. The dining room leads to two cosy living rooms, to the bathroom and to the cleverly hidden current main bedroom making for easy, ground floor living if required. The large mezzanine currently serves as a second bedroom. Accessed by an electronically operated staircase, the mezzanine also has access to the large attic area which could provide considerable additional accommodation (subject to permissions).
With two spacious cellars and a large attic space, which are all ideal for conversion into additional bedrooms (subject to permissions), the house is very practical and offers lots of living options.
Outside, the property has a large two storey barn, in good order, which offers further options for conversion (subject to permissions) but currently serves, on the first floor, as a garage, storage and workshop. Below, there is a pretty studio/ occasional bedroom, with a kitchenette, shower and dry toilet nearby.
Totally independent of the house and barn, with its own vehicular access, stands a separate guest annexe with kitchenette, living area, two double bedrooms, shower, private seating area and summer kitchen. The property is on a very popular walking route and this annexe has previously been rented very successfully to walkers.
Additionally, the house includes a large car port able to accommodate a camper van. There is also a greenhouse and a small, enclosed cabin with a hot tub.
Investment in solar panels and the recuperation of rainwater for use in the property, has significantly reduced energy bills, making it a very economical property to run. The roof of the car port houses the solar panels, which face full south and were newly installed in 2022. There is an independent drinking water source which has been thoughtfully piped for use throughout the house, in addition to the mains water supply already connected. Fibre optic internet is connected.
The large enclosed garden is private and very peaceful with good views over open countryside. The property is in good order throughout and has been recently re-roofed.
The much sought after town of Cajarc, with all its shops and amenities is close by and there is a school bus service to schools there.
This is a well presented and very flexible village house in a popular location at an extremely competitive price. This won't be on the market for long so book your viewing appointment now!
