Gorgeous family home with options for multi-generational living or income potential
Our beautiful south facing stone farmhouse (250 m²) has been renovated to a high standard throughout, retaining many original features.
The property is set in a charming and picturesque hamlet in the commune of St. Projet. The main home has 3 ensuite bedrooms and a built in double bed on the mezzanine creating the 4th bedroom. There is a large, stylish and modern fitted kitchen with a striking open plan, double height dining area with views into the garden. Oil fired underfloor heating throughout makes the house feel very cosy in the winter and there are two wood-burners for additional ambience.
The property includes a lovely sunny detached guest house (96 m²) with 1 bedroom, 2 bathrooms and a sunny garden/dining room. There are open views across the beautiful gardens from the patio doors and large windows. Our daughter has loved this home and it is perfectly set up for multi generational living or to be rented as a gite / airbnb.
Situated next to the swimming pool (12m x 5m) is an additional modern building (135 m²) that is insulated and partially finished internally. It is currently used recreationally but it could easily be developed into a further spacious 2 bedroom house if required.
The whole property sits in a fully enclosed 3187 m² garden with electric gates on the driveway. The garden is landscaped with established flowering plants and cherry, plum, fig, walnut and hazelnut trees. There are open views across fields from the back of the garden and it is a very private and tranquil space.
There is a double garage with an electric door, a 2.9m x 2.6m wood store and a covered store that houses bicycles. There is a separate pool pump house.
St. Projet( www.saintprojet82.fr ) is a traditional and beautifully kept village with a chateau, a post office and library and a lively bar that is open most days. St. Projet has a full calendar of social activities throughout the year, including the famous Giant Omelette Festival.
There are 2 boulangeries and shops within 3km of the house which can also provide daily deliveries if required. There are also 2 very good restaurants within 3 Km. The villages of Parisot and Caylus are both 10 mins drive away and there are leisure lakes, campsites, restaurants, bars, bakeries, shops, doctors, pharmacies and beauty salons. Parisot also hosts an international literary festival and an arts festival every year. There are weekly local farmers markets in Villefranche de Rouergue (20 mins drive), Limogne (10 mins drive) and Caylus. In Villefranche de Rouergue there is a railway station, several large supermarkets and lots of restaurants, shops and bars. Toulouse airport and Brive airport can be reached via the A20 autoroute in 75 mins.
This exceptional property really needs to be seen in person to reveal its special character.
