Built of random, honey coloured stone and sparkling in the warm sunshine, the sale includes a 3-bedroom/3 bathroom family home, a separate fully equipped one bedroomed gîte, and an annex with a delightful bedroom & bathroom. The annex could be enlarged to provide a second independent letting unit.
The complex is situated 5 minutes from the village of La Fouillade, which is fine for local shopping, has a doctor’s surgery, bank, post office and a weekly Saturday morning market. The stunning medieval village of Najac is about 10 minutes by car and the larger towns of Villefrance de Rouergue and Laguepie are a drive of 20 minutes.
The principal house faces SE and has lovely views over the grounds and surrounding countryside. The property has been extended at the rear which has not only enlarged the ground floor rooms but the roof of the extension has provided the master bedroom with a fabulous balcony (15m²), which is fully paved, secured and is just the most lovely spot for some relaxing and sunbathing.
The ground floor is one large, open plan, sitting/dining room and fitted kitchen (45.86m²). In addition there is a study (15.22m²) and WC. On the first floor there are two bedrooms. The master bedroom (15.2m²) has an ensuite bathroom (7.4m²), which needs finishing. The second bedroom (12.5m²) has an ensuite shower room with WC (3.6m²). At the top of the house, the attic room has been converted into a bedroom (18m²) with an ensuite shower room and WC (5.2m²).
There is a good demand for holiday lets in this part of Southern France and we envisage this property being attractive to those looking to supplement their income. The gîte is at right angles to the main house and is built over a huge garage (39m²) . It overlooks a courtyard and the entrance to the complex. Perfect as a couple’s hideaway, it is cosy and comfortable. Entry is into an open plan fitted kitchen/dining/sitting room (44.05m²) fitted with a woodburning stove. The WC is on this floor. A spiral staircase leads up to a mezzanine bedroom (9m²) with ensuite shower room.
The third property is not detached but does have a private garden. It is just across a tiny lane from the other buildings and accessed via a stone staircase. Currently used as a B&B, it comprises a beautifully presented first floor bedroom (24m²) with a small sitting space, and tea and coffee making facilities. There is an ensuite shower room with separate WC. Below the bedroom are two
further rooms (10.26m² & 13.23m²) which subject to the usual permissions would allow enlargement of the annex into a second letting gîte.
The grounds which extend to 3139m² (over ½ acre) are plenty large enough for the installation of a swimming pool. In the meantime use could be made of the jacuzzi situated in the open sided barn! The complex is being sold furnished which perhaps makes a slightly easier transition.
Najac, as one of the most beautiful villages in France attracts holidaymakers and property seekers alike. It lies on the River Aveyron and so kayaking is a popular sport along with mountain biking, pony trekking and walking. There are plenty of cultural events throughout the year but the beauty of the place is just in its exquisite half timbered houses and its castle which dominates the hilltop. The nearest international airport is at Toulouse, a drive of about 1hr 40 minutes.
