This delightful stone farmhouse with 13th Century origins is to be found in the heart of the Tarn department (Midi Pyrenees region) close to the UNESCO heritage site of Albi, and just an hour from Toulouse with its international airport.
The property benefits from a private setting surrounded by an immaculately maintained 5 hectare park, with many species of trees and box hedging, and approached by its own lane ending at the property. The house was extensively renovated about 20 years ago, and has central heating throughout, air conditioning, and a heated swimming pool of generous proportions (15 x 6m) surrounded by a paved terrace.
The house forms an 'L' around a courtyard, from which there is direct access to many of the downstairs rooms, as well as steps up to a bedroom situated on the first floor of the old pigeonnier tower.
The interior style of the property is traditional with exposed stone walls and ceiling beams, tiled floors downstairs and carpets over floorboards upstairs (for the most part), and many original fireplaces.
The front door leads into a spacious entrance hall (4.4 x 4.96m) with access through to the study, lounge and boot room, plus tiled stairs to the first floor.
The study (6.68 x 5.07m) has glazed panel French doors out to the courtyard and a fireplace.
The lounge (5.18 x 8.48m) is the centrepiece of the house with a roof height ceiling and upstairs gallery, a fine monumental fireplace, and French doors out to a north facing stone paved terrace. To one side there is a bar area with a door through to a wine store room (3.46 x 4.96m), and thence to a passage with a cloakroom and access to the boiler room and thence to the garage.
Also off the lounge is the dining room (7 x 5.7m), a lovely light room with double aspect windows and a fine cut stone fireplace.
This leads conveniently through to the kitchen (6.24 x 6.18m) also accessible directly from the lounge, and indeed from the courtyard. It has quality fitted cupboard units made and fitted by a well respected local company. There is a dining area and a door through to a utility room (4.74 x 4.76m), again with a door to the courtyard.
The main bedrooms are situated off the gallery above the lounge. 2 bedrooms and bathrooms interconnect to form a flexible family suite in the east wing with a layout giving independent access to each bedroom. There is a lobby area with fitted wardrobes.
Bedroom 1 - 6.9 x 5.2m: bathroom with fitted cupboards, bath, basin and WC.
Bedroom 2 - 4.65 x 5.17m: shower room and WC.
Bedroom 3 - 4.77 x 5.76m: double aspect windows, dressing area with fitted cupboards and a private bathroom (2.35 x 3.68m).
Bedroom 4 - 4.24 x 6.33m: also has a door to the gallery, as well as one to a stone stairway leading down to the courtyard. It also has a lobby area with fitted wardrobes, and a private bathroom (3.9 x 1.9m). This bedroom connects to the pigeonnier tower, where there is a hallway with a door out to the stone steps to the courtyard, so making this wing independent.
5th bedroom - 3.7 x 3.29m: fitted cupboards and its own private washroom with wC and basin.
Upstairs is a little sitting room (4.69 x 3.93m) with the 6th bedroom on the floor above with its private shower room.
Adjoining the pigeonnier is an open-sided hangar with barn doors out to the park, and access to the pool pump room.
The pool is situated on a raised tiled terrace across the courtyard and has a solar heated electrically operated cover (as well as the possibility of heating via an oil boiler). It is treated by salt water electrolysis.
There is a lovely covered eating area adjacent with a bar/summer kitchen and a shower room with changing cubicle and WC.
There is another stone open sided hangar across the courtyard, as well as a 3 car garage by the turning area at the end of the drive.
The park is immaculately maintained and planted with many species of trees, providing a lovely place to stroll, as well as ample space for a tennis court.
