Farmhouse, cottage and barn near Villeneuve,  France

Stone farmhouse with barn for conversion and stone cottage in the Lot et Garonne, France

Four bedroom 200 year old stone farmhouse with unconverted barn and stone guest cottage on 2½ acres of land with its own oak wood 15 minutes from Villeneuve in the Lot et Garonne, France

A rare opportunity to purchase three delightful stone buildings with a private oak wood, on 2½ acres in the beautiful Lot et Garonne.

This ensemble has not reached its full earning potential, in an area of steadily increasing property prices.

The Unconverted Stone Barn (150 sq mt)

Currently used as a workshop, it has concrete floors to the upper level and prune oven, with steps down to a lower level, ideal for mower tractor, tools, etc. It has source water and electricity and stunning beams inside. We discussed it being converted into further living accommodation with our Mairie, who indicated it should be fairly straightforward to get the relevant permissions. Views from the rear terrace go over the farmer’s fields and down to your private oak wood.

The Farmhouse (277 sq mt)

200 years old with a large extension of around 60 years old.

It comprises;

Covered and tiled breakfast terrace and door leading to;

Large open plan kitchen, dining and living area with a door-opening fireplace, old floor tiles and oak floorboards;

Door opening to enclosed courtyard garden with little pool;

Door opening to another reception room, with a hallway to WC and separate shower and washroom and private entrance to the terrace (a perfect, non-intrusive venue to get income offering B&B);

Door opening downstairs to a basement (utility and storage) and hallway to garage with double doors opening to courtyard garden;

Stairs leading up to a hallway (the extension) that leads to four bedrooms, bathroom, WC, additional storage, with glass doors that open to the front

The Guest Cottage (96 sq mt)
Built eight years ago and double glazed throughout, it is currently divided into a large family bedroom (which comfortably takes three beds) with fitted open fronted wardrobes, an open plan living and dining area with exposed beams to the high roof and exposed stone walls, well fitted kitchen, WC and separate shower and washroom;

The Covered Carport
of an additional 57sq mt could easily be converted into an additional gite, or extra living space. There is also a mezzanine storage floor. It has an enclosed garden, two terraces and unrestricted views over the orchard, vineyards and fields.

The Grounds
are very low maintenance, all level with lots of lawned garden and play areas and have well-established mature trees and shrubs and a bountiful selection of fruit trees in the little orchard, including cherry, fig, two varieties of apple, pear and peach, nectarine, mirabel (small plum), walnut and hazelnut. The ride-on tractor mower will be staying. A large fosse supports the farmhouse and the guest cottage, recently emptied. There is a covered well and a few source water points around.

A three minute drive to the little village of St Aubin, which has a fantastic school, post office, general store, garage, sale de fete and bar and restaurant and just out of the village an organic dairy farm. A five minute drive gets you to the banks of the River Lot at Lustrac, where you can fish, swim and picnic in stunning surroundings. A little further on to the market village of Monsempron Libos. A ten minute drive takes you to Montayral, for DIY, gardening supplies, supermarkets etc and 15 minutes in the other direction get you to the cosmopolitan hubbub of Villeneuve, with its galleries, cinema, boutiques and grand selection of international restaurants. There are many tourist attractions in this area, including the stunning Chateau du Bonaguil.

To Be Included in the Sale
All furniture, lights and electrical fittings to remain and sit-on tractor mower.

Additional Information
The property also has the walled ruins of a large stone barn, currently used as a private area to relax on elevated terraces. It also has a piggery, vegetable garden encircled by the chicken house and their huge free-range garden.

Sunflower and maize fields flank this 2½ acre plot, with a plum orchard to one side and two vineyards to others. The nearest neighbours are a couple of minutes walk away and it is situated off of a very quiet country road (perhaps 8 cars per day) and set back a few miles from the D911, the key route between Cahors and Villeneuve sur Lot.
