A very charming village house indeed!!

Ref:  6488S

Price:  239.000€   Reduced price:  228.500€ (agency fee included)

Oh what a joy.  A very nicely presented property!  No orange walls and lovely bathrooms...!!  If you are looking for something renovated - this could be it!!
In a small hamlet about 10 minutes from Souillac, this beautiful property is in the heart of the village .  It has been completely restored with perfect taste, using quality materials and beautiful colours incorporating the old original features.
*3 Bedrooms
*2 Bathrooms
*Huge lounge dining room
Ground floor:  *Laundry room
* To the right of the entrance - another room
Garden of 955m2

On arriving at the property you get to take a sneak peek through the beautiful decorative wrought iron gates to the lovely garden....
You enter the property by what must have been the entrance for the horse and carriage!  To the right hand side is a little room with a fireplace - no doubt for the driver to stay in and warm himself on colder nights in front of the fire!  This is presently just a store room. 

To your left, you enter into the main house.  All living accommodation is on the first and second floor.  So you have to go upstairs.  There is a room underneath there that is marked as a cellar but really it is another storage area.
Once upstairs, you enter into the fabulous lounge/dining room, where you are greeted by a very welcoming feeling of cosy yet very comfortable and quality surroundings.  The room is split by the staircase going up but this for once, does not hinder the flow of the room.  The dining end has a very impressive old cantou fireplace with a modern kind wood burning stove that actually runs on pellets and one that can be controlled perfectly.  Not one where you have to lug logs in, then wait to warm up, then open the windows because you are too hot!   

The kitchen is fully fitted with modern style kitchen yet it fits in perfectly with the style of the house.  

Just to the side of the kitchen is a w.c and shower room.  (These old houses are always quirky!)

One of the bedrooms is off of the lounge.  Good sized room.
Upstairs there are two further bedrooms and the main bathroom.  This is completely new and good mix of modern and old which works perfectly.  It's not huge but it's heaven to find a nice bathroom.  Top marks from me!!

The garden is not too large but it is perfectly well kept and is mostly gravelled with terracing.  Perfect easy keep garden!  Opposite the property, there is a band of land that is also included.  Perhaps a little veg patch??
My view:  Adorable!  Perfect for those who do not want any renovation works to do.  One of the things I loved most was the electric light switch's.  They have used new (but in the old style) of the little turning ones.  Just a perfect finishing touch!  The only negative for me was that there was no banister on the stairs - I felt a little wobbly ....  but that being the only negative - you can see there is not much to worry about!
