Full description:

A former grand manor house with attached pigeonnier, located in a quiet rural position between Lanuejouls and Privezac. Although part of the roof has been retiled, some areas still require renewal. The tiles are of lauze. The house is of stone construction forming an "L", which over the years has been rendered. The exterior needs attention.

Internally, the property has predominantly remained untouch, retaining many fine details such as imposing fireplaces, a beautiful staircase, tiled floors etcand has not been modernised to any major degree. The current owners live in one part of the house. All the rooms require attention, some superficial, some substantial.

Ground floor.
Entance hall, 10m x 2m, with grand curving oak staircase to first floor.
Store room, 4.8m x 3.6m.
Kitchen, 4.8m x 3.5m.
Dining room, 5.5m x 5m.
Salon, 5.7m x 5.4m.
Original kitchen with large stone fireplace,4.4m x 4.6m

The first floor offers a total of 7 bedroms and one small bathroom.
Bedroom 1, 5.5m x 5.2m
Bedroom 2, 5.7m x 4.9m, with exquisite wood panelling to one wall.
Bedroom 3, 5.4m x 4.3m.
Bedroom 4, 3.6m x 3.4m.
Bedroom 5, 4.2m x 3.6m.
Bedroom 6, 4.9m x 3.3m.
Bedroom 7, 3.4m x 2.7m.

The pigeonnier adjoining the house is in need of major internal renovations but would make a substantial annexe.

The grounds total 5 hectares and are made up of pastureland, woodland and park with fine 40m high examples of conifers and a large vegetable garden. To the front of the house is a cottage garden with potager and to the rear a formal lawned area. At the far end of the grounds is a 1.6 hectare lake fed by a stream. The lake is separated from the main grounds by a bridge carrying a departmental road. It is at sufficient distance to the house to not cause a disturbance on the rare occasion that a vehicule passes.

The Lake
The owner assures us that registered ownership of the lake predates the time when external controls were imposed on the usage of the lake and as such there are no restrictions as to fishing seasons etc. An outlet from the lake passes below the road and cascades down onto the properties land into a stream which runs the length of the property.

Overall, the property offers many possibilities, including conversion into an imposing chamber d'hote.

Rodez airport is only 35 minutes away by car. Toulouse Blagnac is 1 hour 45 minutes by car.
