Description
This charming property dating back to around 1740 is like something out of a fairy tale. What it lacks in size it more than makes up with character which oozes in abundance.
 
Here we have a 2 bedroom ready to move into stone cottage with a large garden and a barn. It is situated in a quiet friendly hamlet with just a few houses and within walking distance of the nearest village with its boulangerie and very handy general store. The larger village of Limogne en Quercy famous for its truffle market is some kms away. It is some 20 kms from the riverside market town of Villefranche de Rouergue with its railway station. Toulouse, Rodez and Brive airports are within easy reach.
 
THE ACCOMMODATION
At the front of the house is a stone paved patio area leading to the entrance to the KITCHEN/DINING AREA (7.1m X 4.5m) with hand crafted wall and floor cupboards with wooden worktops, range cooker with gas hobs and also a solid fuel Aga range cooker, butler sink, oak beamed ceiling and tiled flooring throughout; CELLIER LARDER/WINE STORE (2.0m X 2.25m); BATHROOM(1.8m x 2.2m) wash basin and WC; BEDROOM (3.6m x 2.6m) overlooking the garden and pond, exposed beams; LIVING ROOM (3.7m x 2.5m) with double aspect windows, exposed beams and wall panelling. A staircase from the kitchen leads up to the first floor main BEDROOM (6.2m x 4.4m) again with exposed oak beams.
 
OUTSIDE
At the rear of the house is a covered veranda and paved dining area overlooking the immaculate gardens laid mainly to lawn with mature shrubs and fruit trees. There is also a large pond of approx 35m x 5m.
There is a small converted stone barn (16 m²) presently used as an office/library with old oak beams and handsome terracotta tiled flooring.
 
OUR VIEW
At such an affordable price this property must be very high on your list if you yearn for the French way of life in a friendly community with peaceful countryside all around and close to bustling villages.
