Fully renovated 18th Century house with the X Factor


Bedrooms 5  
Bathrooms 2  
Land Area 3.39 ha  
Surface 208 m²  


Ideally positioned on the outskirts of a quiet village but only 10kms from the hustle and bustle of Cahors and the motorway network – an expertly restored, substantial, 18th century former vineyard property.

This beautiful combination of style and substance offers five bedrooms, with original features, large stone barn, outbuildings and a pool, in a quiet setting with countryside views.

The main entrance opens into a very well proportioned living area with exposed stone, open fireplace, high ceilings and a delightful vaulted souillarde. The large kitchen has windows to two sides and again offers character and authenticity. The separate dining room has another open fireplace and large windows offering a lovely view over open fields to the distant castle. The large ground floor bedroom includes a third fireplace, and delightful features. The bedroom opens onto a very useful area currently used as an office but would serve equally well as a large dressing area with access straight to the downstairs bathroom, with large Italian shower, and separate laundry room.

The bespoke oak staircase leads up to a very large open hallway, currently used as an office, and four large bedrooms, all packed with character and very well presented. The large family bathroom includes a second Italian shower and there is a very useful storage room that could be converted to an ensuite very simply.
All of the rooms have exposed stone, character doors, exposed beams, excellent proportions, original character features, unusually high ceilings, and large windows.

Below the house, at road level, are two very large and well presented, vaulted stone cellars. Currently used as garaging, the cellars, with their 3m of ceiling height, could be converted in to additional accommodation, into wine cellars or simply continue as exceedingly useful storage.

Outside, the house is set back from the very quiet lane and there is almost no passing traffic. The lane leads into open countryside and there are some lovely walking routes from the property. Behind the house the swimming pool sits in an attractive courtyard enclosed by the house, the fully restored and functional bread oven and the restored stoned “porcheries”. The pool and seating area enjoy complete privacy.

Slightly further down the lane stands the large stone barn currently used as garaging and a workshop. The barn is in excellent order, has two storeys, was fully reroofed 10 years ago and has three phase electricity. Connected to the main house alarm system, the barn could continue life as an excellent workshop or perhaps find new purpose as accommodation (subject to permission). Next to the barn a large car port provides further garaging and a short distance on again we find a very useful 150m hangar with vehicular access, currently used as garaging and storage.

The house stands in 3 hectares of land, the majority is on a slope, and is now planted with fir trees, and truffle oaks.

This beautiful property is an ideal family home but could also make a very interesting bed and breakfast property.

Centrally heated, double glazed, recently re-roofed, on mains drainage, with the option of mains gas, and restored throughout there is nothing to do but move in and enjoy its space and authentic charm. We anticipate considerable interest in this unusual property – book your viewing now!
