Full description:

This attractive farmhouse sits on an elevated plot, on a very peaceful lane with just a handful of other properties, overlooking pretty, undulating countryside. It is only 5 minutes from the beautiful medieval town of Eymet with its bars, restaurants, shops, schools and thriving expat community and very close to another medieval town with all amenities and large supermarkets. A highly sought-after location!

The potential is enormous. The price reflects the cosmetic refreshing that is required throughout the property, but it is structurally sound and perfectly habitable immediately. It really is a blank canvas that you can develop as much or as little as you like to fit your exact requirements. There is room for a pool and considerable scope to extend the footprint of the house into the attached barns, thus creating either a lovely large family home, or even some letting rooms.

This is a superb opportunity to acquire a traditional farmhouse in a highly desirable location, with lovely views AT AN AFFORDABLE PRICE POINT.
If you are excited by the prospect of transforming this into the property of your dreams, don't delay to book a viewing now. It is priced to sell and will not hang around.

ACCOMMODATION
This property's layout is absolutely typical of this style of beautiful, period farmhouse. The accommodation is arranged in a linear format on the ground floor, with most rooms opening onto the front terrace. An adjoining barn runs the length of the property to the rear and wraps around the far end. These type of farmhouses typically have a full-length loft on the first floor which in this case, has already been converted to habitable space and, unusually, has full head room. Part of the barn has been converted into a bedroom and bathroom already in this property, but there is enormous scope to develop into the remaining barn area.

Accessed via the open-sided barn. With original prune and bread oven still in place. Scope to develop the living accommodation into this area too.

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.
