Approx 250 sq m barns, including one with dwelling-standard concrete floor (damp-proof membrane & insulation). Also, traditional stone and tiled poultry sheds, and a large wooden garden shed.
This beautiful traditional farmhouse is located in one of the villages of the Baronnies, right at the foot of the Pyrenees mountains. The stone-built farmhouse and spacious barns together form an L-shape which encloses a south-facing courtyard.
With around 250 sq m of outbuildings, there is plenty of room to extend the house, if wished, and/or create 2-3 gites. There is 3300 sq m of land, including a potential building plot.
The tiled hall has a wooden staircase leading to the attic, and the first floor. The two large ground-floor rooms lead off to either side.
The south-facing reception room features a traditional herringbone-patterned wooden ceiling, and the original cheminee, now with a wood-burning stove.
The dining room has a beamed ceiling, plus a charming fireplace, with wood-burner. Also in this room is a built-in glass-fronted cupboard.
The kitchen/breakfast room has a 'modern' end, with built-in oven, induction hob, and dishwasher, while at the 'traditional' end there is a Nordica wood-burner. This high-efficiency wood-burner, in addition to being a cooker, runs the central heating (7 rads, plus heated towel-rail), as well as supplying all domestic hot water.
The spacious bedrooms feature exposed beams, and oeil-de-boeuf windows.
The garden consists of a highly productive kitchen garden, with mature fruit trees; a large lawned area to the rear of the property; and a south-facing courtyard. To the rear of the house is a mature walnut tree, which provides a wonderful sitting area for summer days - imagine; a leisurely meal, a glass of wine, and a fabulous view of the Chateau de Mauvezin (floodlit on summer evenings) - how perfect can you get?
To the south, the views are of the Baronnies hills, and the Pyrenees mountains rising behind them. The garden is filled with mature roses, (all perfumed), climbing through trees, over the outbuildings, or flowing over the garden wall; in summer, the air is filled with their scent.
For the birdwatcher, the garden is filled with interest - firecrests, red kites and griffon vultures feature among the visitors!
