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 in 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 as you can see 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.
Entrance hall (25m2
) with beamed ceiling and terracotta tiled floor, exposed stone walls leading 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 woodburning stove.The characterful kitchen (40m2
) has a beamed ceiling, terracotta tiled floor and a dining area with Godin woodburner. Large utility room behind. Below the kitchen is a large vaulted wine cellar. The ground floor offers some 230m2
Wide stairs serve the first and second floors which offer altogether some 370m2
accommodation divided into 10 spacious suites of double bedroom and either bath or shower room, 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, then the other rooms would make a library, study, music room, hobbies room etc.
The property offers some 600m2
accommodation in all, and is currently heated by fireplace and woodburning stoves. For year round living however, a proper central heating system will be required. We can put you in touch with artisans for this. Other than that, the property is presented in good order and ready to move into.
