A handsomely built farmhouse on a splendid site surrounded by its own grassland estate including several blocks of woodland, principally oak. The property would support a variety of livestock or could be run as a smallholding.
The accommodation has been restored in old-world style with exposed beams, period materials and retro bathrooms. A strong feature is a 50 m² living room with stone fireplace and triple French windows. Whereas there is a high-grade central heating boiler, the septic tank drainage does not conform and requires upgrading by a new owner. There is a useful run of outbuildings with carport and tractor shed and the footprint of a former stone barn, which would probably obtain planning permission.
The location is particularly attractive with views across the valley to an historic hill village and vistas over undulating countryside to the distant Pyrenees. The property, currently occupied part-time, would make an ideal family home or small hobby farm on a permanent basis. The grassland on the estate is at present hay-cropped by a neighbouring farmer.
5 min to local village with café-restaurant, baker, general store, pharmacy and doctor.
