This is a versatile development offering a beautiful family home and the opportunity to earn substantial income from an additional four bedroom gite business with fully established and on-going marketing and management infrastructure.
It also includes a well-equipped gym and very private secure pool in landscaped gardens and also provides lots of opportunity for further development and expansion of the gite business.
Why spend time creating a business when you can buy into one already established and which is capable of further expansion?
The property is a substantial part of the small rural hamlet of "Pont Jalbert" and is located 5 minutes from the charming village of La Fouillade which has excellent shops and social amenities.
Toulouse airport can be reached in 90 mins, the riverside market town of Villefranche de Rourgue with railway station is 18 mins and the historic bastide village of Najac is only 8 mins away.
The property is a former traditional farm complex consisting of 3 substantial detached buildings, (a farmhouse, barn conversion and huge barn) arranged around a central courtyard but each with their own access.
The farmhouse has been tastefully renovated and is currently used as a gite.
One of the barns has been beautifully modernised and converted into a family home and the second barn is used as a workshop and for storage but also includes a modern and well equipped gymnasium.
Both the farmhouse and the family home have the benefit of oil-fired central heating supplemented with wood-burning stoves.
THE FARMHOUSE (GITE)
With its separate drive, the entrance on the opposite side of the house from the courtyard, is from a private raised terrace and opens onto:
Large SITTING ROOM (43 m²) with wood burning stove.
KITCHEN/DINING ROOM (27 m²)
BEDROOM 1 (25 m²) with en-suite BATHROOM (3.6 m²).
There is also a small CONSERVATORY (8 m²) leading to the pool.
On the first floor are 3 further BEDROOMS (17 m²), (12 m²) (18 m²).
The main bedroom has a separate dressing room and en-suite SHOWER ROOM (3.6 m²).
There is also a BATHROOM (6 m²) with a shower over the bath.
Below the house is a UTILITY ROOM containing a fully equipped laundry and toilet facility plus a CELLAR (21 m²).
THE MAIN HOUSE
A former barn has been expensively renovated in mixture of modern and traditional styles and converted into a high quality family home currently used by the owners. Accessed from the courtyard, the hall (9 m²), leads into the open plan spacious
SITTING ROOM/DINING KITCHEN (64 m²) with wood-burning stove, and doors onto the terrace. Off the main room is an OFFICE/BEDROOM (15 m²) also with doors onto the terrace, and a WC.
On the first floor is the MASTER BEDROOM (20 m²) with dressing room (4 m²) and en-suite SHOWER ROOM (5 m²) and
2 further BEDROOMS (18 m² and 9 m²) both with en-suite bathrooms.
There is partly unfinished self contained section of the house which would serve as either a 4th en-suite BEDROOM or small self contained apartment (25 m²) with itÃ¢s own external access.
A large 2 storey barn (280 m² overall) is substantially undeveloped and is used as a Workshop and storage area.
It does contain a fully fitted and very well equipped GYM (26 m²) on the first floor.
This barn has obvious potential for development to form additional letting accommodation. On the lower floor is a log store.
The well-maintained parkland garden has a selection of shrubs and trees with lawns sloping gently down to a small stream.
The 10 x 5 POOL has a large tiled terrace and is discretely enclosed.
The buildings and gardens cover more just over 1 Hectare and has a 100m frontage onto the river Serene.
