Originally, this property consisted of a small stone farmhouse in 6 acres. It is now rather more extensive, as a beautiful new house, built in stone , was built alongside and connected to the original in 2014. The new house was built to the highest standards with insulated stone walls, high beamed ceilings, double glazing, solid, thick stone slabs for the floors and underfloor central heating via heat pump. In addition, a custom built kitchen with Aga, and modern bathrooms. The whole property is in move-into condition.

Approached off a quiet country lane, with a drive leading to ample outside parking. Glazed entrance hall with stone floor leading right to the kitchen. This spacious (42m2) and light room has stone slabbed floors, French window to dining terraces, a beautiful custom built kitchen with large central island, fully equipped including a gas and electric Aga. Door to 35m2 dining room with exposed stone wall, stone built open fireplace, high beamed ceiling, stone slabbed floors and two French windows to dining terraces. A lovely room for entertaining.

A high stone archway leads to the salon (29m2) with 11m high (yes, 36ft high! and quite spectacular) cathedral style ceiling with beautiful beam structure, fireplace with gas “woodburning” stove, huge arched and glazed doorway to courtyard terrace and a feature wooden portal out to the front garden. Off the salon is the master bedroom suite with 30m2 double bedroom with stone floor, two French windows to the gardens, fireplace, high beamed ceiling . Dressing area/laundry room. En-suite fully tiled walk-in shower room. In fact, the whole of this wing can be described as the parental quarters.

To the left of the front door, via a corridor , you reach the old house which is fully renovated to provide 2 ground floor double bedrooms ( one with pretty living area) 2 modern shower rooms and upstairs in the “pigeonnier” is the 4th bedroom ideal for children. There is also a TV room or snug . This section of the house is ideal for visiting guests and children.

The property is surrounded by 6 acres level grounds with lawns, mature trees and flowering shrubs, and a field large enough for a couple of horses . 10m x 6m swimming pool in lawned and hedged area of the gardens. Further away, an all weather tennis court, requiring renovation.

If you are looking for a luxury home in a peaceful rural environment, yet within easy reach of historic villages and the Cahors vineyards, then come and view. You will not be disappointed.

The department of Lot et Garonne in Aquitaine has many small yet lively villages and this department in the south of France is a real find for both nature and culture lovers.

One of Lot et Garonne's assets are the views afforded by the properties over the Garonne or the Lot lush countryside with woodland and lots of leisure activities. The residents have invested well with most of them living in detached houses that are their principal residences. There are however lots of holiday or second homes to choose from.

Compared to the more expensive Perigord or Gers, the Lot et Garonne still holds some bargain French property buys. Perhaps a village home or a traditional stone house in a green environment is what you are looking for, if so, this area is the perfect place to invest in a second home.

Stripping out the usual fluctuations, the housing market in the region has been steadier than most. Long term investments may offer a good return in the future as the Lot-et-Garonne is increasingly appealing amongst foreign purchasers, just like the whole of the region of Aquitaine.
