Full description:

A traditional stone property located a short stroll from the heart of the beautiful bastide of Duras with its bars, restaurants, commerce and schools. This property could be the renovation project you have been dreaming of. Structurally sound, it really is a blank canvas to refresh, modernise and restore to its former glory.

The property has been divided into two properties recently and has plumbing for two kitchens on the ground floor level and has several reception rooms, but it works just as well as one large property as it was originally intended, with just a little jigging required to make the space work. With its town-centre location and generous accommodation, it would lend itself perfectly to being run as a B&B with an easy division of the downstairs accommodation into owner's accommodation and guest accommodation and the bedrooms too, as there are currently two staircases in the property. Or indeed, it would be ideal accommodation for extended families, each with their own space, on the ground floor and upstairs. Equally, it would make an ideal restaurant or café/tea room or indeed a space to run some group classes, be it art, craft, yoga or pilates.

Outside, the manageable plot extends to the front of the property. It is extremely low-maintenance and ideal if the property is to be used as a second home or for anyone looking for a stress-free garden solution. There is room for a small pool to be added, subject to local planning consent.

If you have the tenacity, vision and patience to give this property the makeover it deserves, don't hesitate to book a viewing now. Detached, large, stone properties like this do not come on the market very often in town-centre locations.

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.
