A renovated farm building, with a swimming pool,
in 8 ha of grasslands and landscaped garden in the Tarn department
, TARN midi-pyrenees FR

Location

This property, some 20 km from Albi, is part of a little village where hills and valleys abound. It is a starting point for numerous hiking trails through forests and over hills, with points of view over the countryside. Here, a medieval village, there, the valley watered by the river Agoût. Hills, copses and vine-growing properties share the landscape.

Description

Gates open on to a driveway, lined with olive and umbrella pine trees. The building was constructed in 1855 as part of a vine-growing estate. Its stone and local brick facade can be glimpsed through the concealing trees, over a hundred years old. A swimming pool, out of sight of onlookers, is set near to an outbuilding. The area, dotted with trees, has a view over the neighbouring hills.

The farm building

Standing on slightly raised ground, this farm building has a view over the countryside. It is in an excellent general state of repair: facade, alleyways, nocturnal lighting and swimming pool. The meticulous attention paid to detail, the constant upkeep and the commitment of the owners are all assets that enhance the character of the building.


Ground floor
The entrance door opens into a corridor providing access, on one side, to a kitchen, a separate fully fitted area, and, on the other, to a living room. The latter, forming the heart of the house, has its own entrance door, next to the main entrance. Two stone arches and exposed ceiling joists enhance meticulous decoration. On one side, a dining room as well as a bar area and, on the other a lounge with a fireplace. A shower room at the end of the corridor has been converted to accommodate disabled persons.
First floor
This level is completely given over to bedrooms. A long corridor provides access to two bedrooms, looking out over the parklands. They each have a large bathroom. On the other side, a large landing leads to a main suite, comprising a spacious bathroom and a guest bedroom.
Outbuilding
Adjoining the family home, a workshop and a hayloft (respectively spanning 59 and 66 m²) take up a surface area which could also be used for creating additional rooms. A large farm shed, backing on to the farm building, could be converted: its vast area undergoing complete transformation. A large wooden door opens into a single-car garage.
Guest house
Part of the swimming pool area, this guest house comprises a lounge-dining room with a kitchen area, a bedroom, a shower room, a covered terrace and a small garden planted with olive trees.
Garden
The trees, coppice stand and olive trees surrounding the house are very well looked after. A wall conceals a very private place: a swimming pool and a guest house comprising a lounge with a fireplace, a kitchen, a bedroom and a shower room.
Meadows
Almost six hectares of undulating grasslands slope gently down to a lake and a spring, constituting a timeless area, where the only noise disturbing pastoral walks is that of the spring.

Our opinion

The immediate feeling of comfort comes from the balance between the simplicity of the landscape, fairly wild natural surroundings, and the care taken with the discreet conversion of the old farm. The link between the inside and the outside is natural and harmonious. The proximity of Toulouse and Albi provides an almost immediate link with urban activities, whilst preserving a feeling of seclusion.
