An exquisite example of the classic 19th century Maison de Maître, in walled gardens of half an acre within the heart of an historic village in northern Tarn et Garonne. Tastefully renovated in recent years to provide a spacious 5 bedroom family home. New central heating, electrics, plumbing and presented in move into condition. Pigeonnier and further outbuildings. Swimming pool in private rear garden.
A rare opportunity to purchase this style of home in a lovely village. Toulouse airport under the hour. Set in the heart of a sleepy and very beautiful village, this impressive 19th century manor house forms part of it, and at the same time is slightly apart within walled and gated grounds. Inside the gates is the sunny front garden with dining terrace. Steps up to the huge double entrance doors and into an exceptionally large entrance hall some 14m x 3.5 m with parquet floor, wooden panelling and with a double door leading out to the gardens at the rear. To the right a billiards room, which would make a large study overlooking the entrance.To the rear right is the living room ( 28m2) with 2 windows to the rear garden, decorative plaster ceiling, marble fireplace and wood floors. Ground floor double bedroom 1 (28m2) with wood floor, fireplace, 2 windows to the gardens and en-suite shower room and dressing room. The dining and kitchen rooms at the front of the house are open plan with the dining room to the front with terracotta tiled floor, fireplace with woodburning stove and French window to the front gardens. Beyond is the fully fitted modern kitchen with terracotta tiled floor and large wooden topped island. Larder.
Beautiful and quite typical 19th century stairs lead up to the huge first floor landing (some 50m2). Here there are 4 further spacious double bedrooms, all with wood floors and 3 with en-suite shower or bathrooms. The stairs continue to the attic which is spacious and fully insulated. The property is heated by a modern oil fired central heating system. Some 396m2 accommodation in all.
To the side of the house is a range of outbuildings. A tall Pigeonnier with attached building (70m2) dating from well before the construction of the house. This could be easily converted to a guest or guardian’s cottage. Then there are the former stables, boiler room and garage. At the rear of the house is the sunny lawned garden with palm trees and the swimming pool with tiled sun terrace. Small outbuilding. Although in the heart of the village, there is a sense of privacy here.
This handsome and very spacious home is of the style that rarely comes on the market, and it will not only make a fabulous family home, but an excellent investment. We recommend an early viewing.
The department of Tarn et Garonne in Midi Pyrenees has many assets, a wonderful climate, cultural heritage, an interesting history, unspoilt nature and welcoming local residents.
Tarn et Garonne is composed of 30+ cantons and 190+ towns and villages all dotted around the rural landscape and in the hills that lead up to the Pyrenees mountains, the snow-covered peaks can be seen in the distance when the weather is good. A charming feature of the area are the historical monuments dating back to the Middle Ages: churches, ramparts, castles, abbeys, and bastides.
Set in the heart of the Gascony region, Tarn et Garonne was traditionally a hat-manufacturing area, you can buy them everywhere still and boaters are still made there, particularly in Sept-fonds which is worth a visit.
Climate is warm but pleasant and property prices are less than some neighbouring coastal departments, great 'second home' region due to the barmy summer weather but also a very popular place for retirees.
