This handsome residence is situated in the heart of a 12th century, hilltop bastide village in Tarn et Garonne, with local shops and restaurants all within walking distance.
The entrance is via a rather impressive wooden portal, leading on to the courtyard terrace. This is sunny, generous, with terracotta tiles and contains the 9m x 4.5m swimming pool. Many of the rooms look out onto this area as can be seen from the main photo. At the far end, you are on the ancient ramparts of the village with far reaching views over the countryside below.
The entrance hall (25m2) with beamed ceiling and terracotta tiled floor, has exposed stone walls and leads to the salon (60m2) with high beamed ceiling, blue and white tiled floor and huge inglenook style open fireplace, French windows to the terrace. A superb reception room.
There is a separate dining room (30m2) with beamed ceiling, terracotta tiled floor and wood burning stove. The characterful kitchen (40m2) has a beamed ceiling, terracotta tiled floor and a dining area with Godin wood burner. There is a large utility room behind. Below the kitchen is a large vaulted wine cellar. The ground floor offers some 230m2 of accommodation. Wide stairs serve the first and second floors which offer altogether some 370m2 of accommodation divided into 10 spacious suites of double bedrooms and either bath or shower rooms, plus a laundry room. These rooms are well decorated and some have mullioned windows overlooking the valley or pool terrace. The number of suites lends itself to either a large family, or for conversion to a boutique hotel. However, if only 5 or 6 are needed, the other rooms would work as a library, study, music room, hobby room etc.
The property offers some 600m2 of accommodation in all, and is currently heated by fireplace and wood burning stoves. For year round living however, a proper central heating system would be required. We can put you in touch with artisans for this. Other than that, the property is presented in good order and is ready to move into.
