Property Details - Character Property
A typically character C18th Quercynoise stone house, close to the beautiful town of Figeac on a plot of 2,524m², in a very peaceful and green environment well "hidden" from the hustle and bustle of the busy world.
A hillside property with a beautiful terrace enjoys an elevated position overlooking the River Céle.
Inside the property you enter into a large living / dining room of 55m² with a large fireplace, feature beams, and wonderful parquet flooring. Just off this room is a long galley style kitchen, set within a beautiful attractive "Souillarde", the traditional kitchen of the area.
Upstairs you discover a large bedroom with an adjoining bathroom and mezzanine, the latter is large enough to create another bedroom or study if desired.
On the lower ground floor is an independent part to the house with a large bedroom, bathroom, WC, boiler room. This offers potential for guest accommodation or a small income.
In addition there is a garage 35m² which could be converted into a further accommodation also if desired. There is a basic bathroom already in existence.
Within the woodland garden, there is also an old ruin, perhaps a previous bread oven.
Nearby, there are riverside walks to enjoy as the River Célé meanders past, but note it is only navigable by canoe in spring and autumn.
Car parking for several cars. Some woodland.
The property is on mains drainage. The lovely medieval market town of Figeac is around 10 minutes away with a good choice of facilities. Having a rich heritage, the old town is a lovely place for a stroll. The picturesque narrow streets are lined by mansions with carved facades and the timber-framed stone residences will provide photo opportunities. From the house there is a restaurant within 5 minutes drive at Corn and another at a similar distance nearby.
Close to the famous pilgrimage route of Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle, where many follow its routes as a form of spiritual path or retreat for their spiritual growth. It is also popular with hiking and cycling enthusiasts and organized tour groups.
A must see property for its unique charm. Ideal for those who love nature and a pretty river...
