Full description:

Set on a peaceful country lane surrounded by sunflower fields, this property oozes rural charm. A haven of tranquility, yet walking distance from a popular village with amenities, an excellent primary school and a wonderful Summer night market. It is also located 5 minutes from the stunning medieval town of Eymet with its vibrant, year-round Expat community and equidistant from another thriving town with commerce and large supermarkets. A highly sought-after location for either a permanent or holiday home.

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!

Accessed via Bedroom 1. An L-shaped room with beautiful countryside views.

Storage area -

Outside:

The large plot is laid to grass and is virtually flat. This makes it relatively easy to maintain with a sit-on mower.

Attached Barn
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.

Covered terrace.
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.

About Guyenne Immobilier Sarl, Eymet

Welcome to Guyenne Immobilier. We are a well established Estate Agency, selling and renting property in Miramont de Guyenne in the Lot et Garonne department and the surrounding area for over 18 years. In recent years the area that we encompass has grown and we now include a selection of properties in the Dordogne, Gironde and often further afield.
Second Office in EYMET...With an exceptionally busy office in Miramont we were in need of more room and with a large proportion of our sales and rental business taking place in and around Eymet in early spring 2010 we opened our second office in the stunning Bastide market town of Eymet and we have never looked back. Our team have a wealth of experience and knowledge of this area, property and living in France.
We offer an excellent and, most importantly, knowledgeable service and we will maintain support through all stages of purchase through to completion and beyond. We have French, Dutch and British staff and a German speaker too. Register with us now and we will guide you all the way. There has never been a better time to buy.
Rental Management/Gestion Locative
A good proportion of the daily business taking place in our Miramont office surrounds our 'Gestion' business or in English 'rental management'. It is probably little known amongst the British that we have the largest portfolio of 'long term rental' properties in the area and most of those are French owned.
Now with over 100 properties on our books with full time occupancy, it keeps us on our toes. We have a constant demand which outstrips supply.
The buy to let market is huge and investing in this sector could well could reap you a 7 - 8% gross return when rented, much more attractive than a bank! Have you thought of 'buying to let' investments? Purchase through Guyenne Immobilier and we can offer you a complete 'in-house' service, unique to this area.
