This very special conversion has to be seen to be fully appreciated as our description will not do it justice! The setting and the views are stunning and the quality of the restoration is nothing short of superb.
The property is situated a few kms from the well known medieval hilltop village of Puycelsi, voted one of the ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ of France. The famous market town of Gaillac can be reached in around 20 mins, Albi in 40 mins and Toulouse Blagnac airport in just over 1 hour away..
The property is set up high on the side of a hill and it has been designed so that the main accommodation is on one level with 2 ensuite bedrooms, office and small sitting room with the option of using the latter into 2 more bedrooms if required. Beneath the house is a capacious storage room which also houses the heating system and is accessed from the exterior at ground level. Attached to the main house is a barn which has been partly converted. At the lower ground level is a one bedroom guest gite.
THE MAIN HOUSE
Entrance to the hallway with its poplar lined walls and built in range of storage cupboards leading to the large light filled open plan LIVING AREA and KITCHEN/DINING AREA (75 sq.m) with 2 sets of glazed patio doors leading out to the dining balcony with its timber decking and attractive wrought iron balustrading running the full length of the house and affording the most _amazing panoramic vista with the private lake_, the Gresigné forest and the magnificent backdrop of the Pyrenees to the south west. At the centre of the room is a state of the art energy efficient wood burner set on a revolving plinth with its flue rising up and through the ceiling. The entire tiled floor is under floor heated. The kitchen is fully fitted and equipped.
MAIN BEDROOM (14.2 sq.m) with those super views and ensuite bathroom, WC; DOUBLE BEDROOM 2 (12.3 sq.m) BEDROOM 3 (8 sq.m) serving as an office; small lounge (11.6 sq.m) which could easily serve as an additional bedroom. Shower room with wc; separate WC.
THE TOP FLOOR (105 sq.m) has been partly converted into a DOUBLE BEDROOM and KITCHEN/LIVING area. Work on the remainder is yet to be completed although the new windows are double glazed and the roof has been replaced. It would make a superb 2/3 bedroom stone house.
LOWER GROUND FLOOR LEVEL – the GITE has independent access and consists of living area/dining/kitchen area (25.4 sq.m) and separate bedroom (23 sq.m) with shower room, wc.
Attached to the barn are 2 additional ‘hangars’ or open fronted barns. Artist’s studio constructed in larch wood with a tiled roof. The landscaped grounds around the house slope away down the hillside to pasture, woodland and the private lake. There is also a well.
This property has been designed with space, comfort and energy efficiency in mind together with scope for adding more accommodation with the possibility of deriving extra income if required.
