Full Description

A charming country ensemble of Maison de Maitre, with guest wing, Pigeonnier, stone barn all set in 10 acres grounds, including a 2 acre park with centuries old cedar trees, within 10 mins of the busy town of Agen, Lot et Garonne. The property has been the subject of a complete and very tasteful renovation (new roof, underfloor central heating, double glazing etc) and is presented in impeccable condition. The best of both worlds with a quiet rural location and easy access to town for shops, restaurants, the TGV and airport. Toulouse 70 mins, Bergerac airport 90 mins.

The property is set in a quiet rural location, down a country lane, and with access via electric gates to a courtyard and plenty of parking in the shelter of the barn. The house is in front of you, with a guest wing at right angles. The house is heated by an efficient heat pump and boiler, via underfloor central heating, plus radiators. All new utilities and new double glazing throughout.

Entrance hall with lovely tiled floor, leading right to the salon, again with the same tiled floors, beautiful carved stone open fireplace. A bright and airy room. This continues around to the rear and French windows to rear dining terrace. Dining room, ideal for entertaining. A side hall, with cloakroom, leads to the modern, fully fitted kitchen/dining room with larder.

There is an absolutely gorgeous new staircase made by a craftsman, in aged Plane tree wood. First floor landing off which are distributed 3 double bedrooms (one with en-suite shower room), a study and family bathroom. All is well presented and decorated. The guest wing allows you to welcome your guests, giving them some independence.

There is a hall, large living room with fireplace (easy to add a corner kitchen here) , a small room and upstairs 3 double bedrooms and a bathroom. Outside in the courtyard is the pretty Pigeonnier building, with old bakery room attached, with small wine cellar. The building has a good roof but requires internal renovation. There is a huge stone barn ideal for workshops, parking or even for conversion (subject to planning). The 2+ acres gardens surrounding the house are peaceful and contain a great number of centuries old Cedar trees - quite majestic. The rest of the land is made up of some 8 acres oak woodland and small pasture, on slopes around the gardens. There are lovely walks through these, and an ancient stone Fountain building containing a spring, and a second spring which is pumped to water the garden.

This is a delightful property, in excellent condition and offered at a very reasonable price.

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.
