This is a quite simply beautifully renovated property in a magnificent location in the Aveyron in the Midi Pyrenees. The property has been tastefully restored with great attention to detail allowing it to retain its character . The two storey residence has separate entrances for both the main and guest areas and could easily serve as future Bed and Breakfast or gite accommodation.
The main stone residence has over 175 m2 of living space, whilst there are a number of outbuildings including a garage, a storeroom and a studio from which the current owner runs a small pottery business.
There are a number exterior terraces attached to the main residence, facing east, south and west directions, allowing different aspects throughout the day, whilst the 6200m2 garden has been landscaped and is dotted with an abundance of fruit producing trees. To complete the ‘home garden’, there is also a productive vegetable patch and an old exterior bread oven.
Included in the sale is an independent barn of 75 m2, although this may be excluded and put up for separate negotiation.
The main residence comprises:
On the upper ground floor :
- A large living area with a stunning vaulted stone arch and large open log fire
- A dining area with picture windows overlooking the Tarn valley
- A fitted kitchen with a central island and access to an exterior covered terrace for dining and relaxing
- A 40m2 master ensuite bedroom and a separate guest WC
On the lower ground floor:
- Two spacious guest bedrooms
- Shower room and seperate WC
- A large storeroom, workshop and studio (currently used as a pottery studio)
There is under floor heating and an efficient heat pump and fuel heating system.
The property is situated in a hamlet with stunning views overlooking the River Tarn and close to beautiful village of St Rome de Tarn only 20 minutes from the magnificent Millau Viaduct. The Aveyron is a beautiful part of southwest France, well known for its outdoor activities and dramatic scenery. The opening of the Millau Viaduct in December 2005 hugely improved the area’s accessibility from the north, with Montpellier and the sandy beaches of the Languedoc Mediterranean coastline less than 1 hour to the south.
