A fine secluded property of just over 2H set between the Lot valley and the mountains of the Cantal In the south of the Auvergne, within the area of the Chataigneraie, this delightful property, with swimming pool, sits within just over 2H of stunning countryside, adjoining farmland. The architect designed house, conceived in 2001, has the advantage of combining the modern, fully insulated, comforts with the traditional Auvergnat character of a 'lauze' roof (lauze is the name for the hand-cut fish-scale shaped stone tiles) with dormer windows. Its elevated position offers great views with breath-taking sunsets to be enjoyed from the terrace. The light and spacious open-plan ground floor offers a large living room, running the full width of the house, with a white stone fireplace and two sets of French double glazed doors - one overlooking the valley and the other leading onto the terrace which overlooks the swimming pool and the garden. Another set of French doors leads from the terrace into the dining room area. The kitchen leads off the dining room and shares the view. Also on ground level is a wc, laundry room, storeroom and boiler room. The ground floor is tiled throughout and the central heating is oil. A hand-crafted oak staircase leads up to the main bedroom, which is the width of the house, three further bedrooms and two bathrooms, all with exposed beams. A small area off the corridor is used as a mini library. True to the Auvergnat tradition, the floors upstairs are chestnut parquet. The swimming pool is 13mx 5m, 1.5m deep. A large garage/workshop and pool room are located below the house. Two 5,000L rainwater storage tanks sit underground. The house is surrounded by mature landscaped gardens, shrub and tree filled banks, a walled vegetable garden, orchard and walnut grove, fields and woodland.
