Make an Enquiry
This charming property, probably over 200 years old, is located in a very quiet, but convenient situation. The attractive group of buildings is set well back - and largely concealed from - a small country lane. The whole property is enclosed at a distance by trees and, on the four acres of land, there are numerous fruit and walnut trees.
There are no close neighbours. To either side and opposite is non-constructible arable farmland. On the southern side the land is bounded by a small river.
RESTORATION AND DECORATION
The house is restored and tastefully decorated to a high standard, inside and out, and could confidently be moved into without any additional work being necessary.
GROUND FLOOR LAYOUT
This is very staightforward and is shown on a plan (See View all images), which also shows the floor area of each room. All rooms are on the same level, with no steps or narrow passages.
All furniture in the fitted kitchen is in solid oak.
Both bathrooms have two basins, shower, bath and WC. The separate WC also has a washbasin.
The utility area contains a Weissmann boiler, water heater, water softener, sink, space/plumbing for washing machine and drier and plenty of shelving.
Upstairs are two large double bedrooms (23 m2 and 28 m2) and an office area (17 m2).
The house has full central heating plus the option of an open fire in the large feature fireplace.
These comprise a spacious, well-restored barn (including a separate large storage room for garden tools etc.), a pigeonnier and an attractive building with under-floor heating, containing two rooms.
Although this would not be necessary, the outbuildings offer the purchaser scope for further development of the property, for example to provide separate accomodation for visitors or possibly as a gite for holidaymakers.
The large (12m x 6m) heated swimming pool is screened by shrubs and trees and bordered by a flagged area, with a pergola.

LOCAL FACILITIES - MONTEILS
Within the commune of Monteils there is a supermarket, a large new DIY store and a store selling meat, cheese, excellent fruit and vegetables and prepared meals. There is also a small primary school and, on the boundary with Caussade, a new secondary school.
LOCAL FACILITIES - CAUSSADE
Although in a rural situation surrounded by open country, the property is barely five minutes from the lively town of Caussade, which has many shops and an extensive weekly market selling a wide range of local produce.
The town is currently undergoing a considerable amount of embellishment, including the provision of comprehensive medical facilities and, in the near future, a state-of-the-art indoor swimming pool complex. There is a cinema/theatre which shows some English-language films, numerous restaurants and a comfortable Irish pub which holds weekly concerts.
