Full description:

This beautiful 18th century manoir offers seclusion and tranquility in the heart of rural France. With a 9 hectare (22.5 acre) estate, a guardian cottage and two self-contained apartments, the property offers multiple opportunities for income, and ideally combines a superb rural setting with accessibility to amenities. The historic market town of Lavaur is a short drive away, and Toulouse international airport is approximately 40 minutes by car.

The property is approached on a seldom-used road that winds along a protected valley, and the house benefits from lovely views down the valley towards Lavaur. Arranged around a sheltered inner courtyard with a large arched gateway are the main house, the cottage and two self-contained apartments.

The extensive 9 ha estate is a delightful combination of woodland, meadows and well-maintained mature garden. To the front of the main house is a pretty lawned area with rose beds and mature trees. Steps from here lead down through a rose-covered pergola to the swimming pool terrace (with w/c and outdoor shower) which overlooks the orchard and meadows.

Main House - Renovated to provide a welcoming home, the main house is full of character and style. On the ground floor are 2 large reception rooms (one with an open fireplace and one with a log burner), and an elegant dining room with French windows opening onto the garden. The large family kitchen is fully equipped, with an island unit and granite work surfaces. It benefits from far-reaching views along the valley, and French windows opening to the garden. Also on the ground floor of the main house is a double bedroom with en-suite shower room, a large boiler room/utility, a study and a cloakroom.

An elegant staircase leads to the first floor, and 3 light and spacious double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and large windows overlooking the garden. There is also a slightly smaller double (with en-suite shower room), which overlooks the courtyard to the rear.

Ground Floor Apartment - Accessed either from the courtyard or through a separate entrance at the front of the property, is a light and airy ground floor apartment. There is an open plan living/dining area with a fully-equipped kitchen, a double bedroom with walk-in closet and en-suite shower room; also a separate w/c. Sliding doors lead from the living area to a generous terrace, which benefits from super views over fields and along the valley. With a log burner and electric heating, the apartment is fully self-contained and offers income potential, or extra accommodation for family and friends.

First Floor Apartment - At the end of the main house outbuildings have been creatively developed to form a spacious 2 bedroom 2 bathroom first floor apartment. There is a fully-fitted kitchen, a utility room, and a light living/dining area with wide sliding doors that open onto a large, very pleasant covered terrace overlooking the garden. The apartment has its own central heating system, and with a separate front door can be completely independent from the main house.

Beneath the apartment is a large breakfast room with double doors that lead to the garden. There remains considerable scope to further develop the remaining ground floor area of the outbuildings, which is currently used for storage.

The Cottage - Forming the fourth side of the internal courtyard, the cottage offers cosy and characterful accommodation. Downstairs is a pleasant living room (with log burner), a kitchen, a separate dining room and a w/c. Upstairs are two double bedrooms and a bath/shower room. The cottage has its own central heating system, and with a separate front door can provide further completely independent accommodation.

Other features of this property include a former winery, and a substantial barn (currently used as a garage) which both provide scope for development. Floor plans available on request.

About Allez Francais, Corrèze

Allez-Français was founded in 2001 by Peter Elias, a year after Bridget and Peter completed their own property purchase in France. Having spent a considerable amount of time searching for houses in France, we are all too aware of how time consuming and frustrating the process can be. We know that many agents will meet you at their offices and offer a portfolio of properties for you to browse through, even though you have made appointments to view specific properties a few days earlier. We don't work like that - we promise. (see below).

We would normally expect to spend a whole day with you on viewings, probably visiting 4-5 properties in the day. We prefer to spend 2 days with you if possible, we find that ensures that you will find that dream home. You won't be rushed and we will answer your questions during the time that we spend together. We are committed to dealing in a professional manner with all of our clients both vendors and buyers.

Having worked previously as a highly qualified independent financial adviser, Peter Elias is able to introduce clients to a network of advisers able to place business in all aspects of finance and insurance. Combined with our expertise in the French property market, we can pass on our knowledge to your advantage, making the whole process as hassle-free as possible.

As your purchase progresses, we will, where possible refer you to an English speaking Notaire. We can also introduce you to architects or surveyors, if required, who will be able to advise you upon the condition of your house or perhaps assist with drawings that you may require in connection with proposed improvements.

Please contact us to let us know how we can help you to find your ideal property.
