The property consists of a quintessential Lot et Garonne farmhouse with an enormous, attached barn and an independent 2-bedroom gite. They are set on a generous plot. Fully-fenced and secure. The main house boasts 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, all on the ground floor. There is considerable scope to develop the first floor loft, already boarded out and with enormous headroom to extend the living space. Or indeed to develop part, or all of the barn. However, the existing single-story gite with its own access and complete privacy from the main house would be ideal as an income-generating proposition or for extended families.
Early viewing advisable. Book yours now to avoid disappointment!

This has been converted by the current owners within the past couple of years into a charming gite. It boasts a large, open-plan Kitchen/Dining/Living room, 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. With its own tiled terrace, independent access and full fencing all round, it is completely private from the Main house and could easily be rented out as an income-generating holiday let during the lucrative Summer months.
Equally, it would be ideal accommodation for visiting family and friends or a permanent solution for extended families with older parents who might be looking for the security of living close by, but still maintaining their independence. There is currently no heating in the gite.

Bedroom 2 - (1.8x1.5m) + (1.8x6.3m) 3 +11m2 (14m2)
Accessed via Bedroom 1. An L-shaped room with beautiful countryside views.
Storage area -
Accessed via door on exterior of building. Currently houses a freezer, washing machine & ironing board.
The large plot is laid to grass and is virtually flat. This makes it relatively easy to maintain with a sit-on mower.
Accessed via the house or via 2 enormous sets of external sliding doors. A fanstastic storage space with a partial first floor in place on three sides of the barn. Access to the loft via this first floor.
On the ground floor there are two storage rooms, one housing the boiler and with plumbing for the washing machine. There is also the option to flip a switch to alternate between Mains and Well water (the latter being ideal for watering the garden). The second storage room houses the central heating oil tank. On the other side of the barn there is a large workshop with an external access door. The central section of the barn can be used as a garage, even for a large vehicle like a Camper van.
There is enormous potential for converting part (or all of the barn) into further accommodation, subject to local planning consent. Or to add extra bedrooms and bathrooms on the first floor loft area, directly above the existing living accommodation.
There is a further useful storage room - 4.5x2m (9m2), accessible only from the exterior of the barn, used by the current owners as garden equipment & tool storage.
Accessed via the rear terrace, this is an invaluable addition to any property in South-West France. A fantastic extension of your living space and the perfect spot to dine al fresco, or sit enjoying a glass of the locally-produced vino, marveling at the shooting stars so prevalent during the Summertime.
Swimming pool - 5x4m (approx.)
Wooden, above-ground hexagonal pool.
Located just a few paces from the covered terrace with views across to lovely countryside beyond. Ideal for cooling down when the temperature soars.
