This superb country house with its stunning "pigeonnier" is situated on a hillside plot of 5.5 hectares.
In the nearby village people call it "le petit chateau", the little castle. Due to the beautiful setting it overlooks the rolling, surrounding landscape and the nearby, picturesque medieval town of Penne d'Agenais.
This unique location, surrounded by nature and distant landscapes, guarantees peace and privacy while all the necessary shops can be reached within a few minutes.
The house and outbuildings were carefully and fully restored in 2017-2018, combining contemporary comfort with authenticity and artistic charm.
The whole offers a habitable surface of 450 m2, including 2 gîtes and a large, fully installed barn of 220 m2 that currently serves as an artist's studio.
There are many beautiful old trees and an orchard on the site. In front of the house the pasture attracts deer daily from the forest that also belongs to the domain. The southern garden around the house surprises you with many pleasant seating areas where you can enjoy nature.
There is also a heated swimming pool (6m by 12m) with liner and outdoor shower.
The roof is completely renovated and insulated. All windows have double glazing.
From the south-facing terrace (60 m2) one enters the spacious entrance hall. To the right is the library and a toilet. The door on the left gives access to the spacious living room (70 m2) with fully equipped kitchen. All windows overlook the beautiful surrounding landscape; a feast for the eye! The oak parquet, the soapstone stove and the sandblasted oak of the kitchen and original beams give this main living room a warm and cosy look.
Further on you will find the master bedroom with dressing room and spacious bathroom with shower and bubble bath.
A beautiful staircase takes you to the light-filled attic/living space of 150 m2 with its original truss and windows all around. If necessary, additional rooms can be provided here with a minor intervention.
Back in the entrance hall, an internal staircase brings you downstairs where you will find an extra bathroom with bathtub, a cellar and a technical room. The entire ground floor opens through its beautiful patio doors onto the side terrace and the front terrace with its breathtaking view.
A first gîte is situated here:
Has a large living room with fully equipped kitchen (40 m2), a bathroom with shower, sink and toilet, a multi-purpose (game) room with fireplace (42 m2) and 2 bedrooms.
This second gîte (100 m2) is located next to the house. Along an intimate private terrace one enters through the authentic front door. The renovated living room with its rustic fireplace, the original fitted cupboards and the equipped kitchen guarantee an atmosphere of soothing serenity where the window acts as a living painting.
A door leads to a hall that gives access to the bathroom with shower, sink and toilet; then to the first bedroom; and to the stairs where one finds the second spacious bedroom upstairs. . At ground level there is the utility room and laundry room. In addition to this pigeonnier there is also a studio:
This former plum drying room has been transformed into a pleasant and spacious living room / bedroom (30 m2) with it’s own bathroom including shower, sink and toilet.
A starring role is set aside for this beautiful space! Completely renovated: with new and insulated roof in which 2 automated roof windows provide light and air; with a polished concrete floor in which all utilities are present, with new electricity and hot + cold water, its original impressive interior doors and with the beautiful oak window that stylishly encloses the porch. Here too it is possible to give this 220 m2 a new purpose with little effort.
In addition to the studio there is a large storeroom, a spacious shelter for wood and 3 smaller storage spaces. Underneath the house there is a very large garage of 60 m2. Everything is in optimum condition.
