an 18th century house set in 6 hectares of park and meadow
28 kms from Montauban, ten minutes from Bruniquel, one the most beautiful villages in France, the property lies in an undisturbed and secluded setting. The whole region, situated on the borders of Albigeois, Rouergue and Quercy, offers a diversity of charms which invite you to discover history through the architectural heritage of medieval cities, listed abbeys and arts towns.
The main building dates back to the 17th century, an extension was built in the 18th century. Both facades feature wooden small-paned windows. This quality woodwork is an important architectural element. The wooden frames have been preserved so as to maintain the authenticity of the building. In two thirds of the house, plumbing and electrical installations were brought up to standard in 2003. The entire property is surrounded by unspoilt countryside protecting the building from the outside world.
The brick-framed entrance door opens onto a hallway and the start of a massive oak staircase. The authentic character has been preserved, retaining period tiles and exposed beams. A first living room with a red brick fireplace and old terracotta floor tiles is followed by a dining room with intact floors and walls. Two kitchens, in need of complete refurbishment, face west and overlook the pastures. Two bedrooms, a study and a bathroom.
The landing leads to a bathroom followed by a large bedroom with exposed beams and joists. A bedroom to the west with a bathroom adjoins a study with old terracotta tiles floor tiles that have been weathered by time. The adjacent formal reception room is bathed in light and features exposed beams, polished floor tiles and a large fireplace. Two additional bedrooms and a bathroom are illuminated by large windows overlooking the garden.
A large games room has been created under the roof. It could also be used as a dormitory for young children. This last floor also offers an eighth bedroom and an office.
Six hectares of meadows surround the house. Originally, a park with various species of trees had been created in front of the main facade. The opposite facade opens onto a view of the pastures and woodlands.
Set in the heart of scenic countryside, the property will benefit from a faithful restoration complementing the period style and features. A family project combining a redecoration to enhance the existing large areas and a refurbishment upgrading the house to modern standards of comfort will restore all its original charm and character.
