With a five star view over the Viaur Valley and beyond, this property has been well renovated, and sits in attractive grounds of 3,500m2. It consists of the original farmhouse with a walled courtyard and barn behind, and 2 separate houses, for holiday rentals.
The property is situated in a hamlet close to the scenic Viaur valley, which is popular with walkers, canoers and fishermen. The current owners have been renting out for six years now, and get good levels of occupancy and a commensurate income. There is a gravel driveway and parking area adjacent to the gites, leading to the entrance to the old farmyard, now a sheltered courtyard with an open stone hangar, and a small barn (c. 40m2) at the rear. Concrete steps from the courtyard lead up to a small covered terrace and the original solid wood front door, which leads you directly into the living room (6.25 x 5.7m max.). It has lots of old features, like exposed timber framing and ceiling beams, an old stone sink, and an open fireplace with a wood-burning stove. A new solid wood staircase leads up to the first floor.
Off to the left is the kitchen diner (5.5 x 4.4m) with an original polished wood floor, and an excellent range of fitted wall and base units with pastel-painted doors. The kitchen comes with the appliances, notably an electric AGA with five ovens and a separate gas hob. A glazed panel door leads out to a tiled terrace with a retractable sun blind, overlooking the garden and the view.
