A nice 'Pavillon' and a step back to the 70's!

Ref:  6455s

Price:  175.000€ (agency fee included)

This quite elegant property is situated between Souillac and Gourdon in the LOT surrounded by 2000m2 of garden.
The exterior is in excellent condition.  Stepping inside is like a trip back to the 70's!   However, that very intense flowery wallpaper or vertical stripped wallpaper is still perfectly in place - not one scrape or peeling corner!!!   So if you needed to move in directly, you could, although I have a feeling I would go slightly insane and closed in by the overwhelming paper style vegetation, particularly in the bedroom!

*4 Bedrooms
*Large lounge/dining of 37m2
*Laudry room
*Garage of 53m2
*Terrace of 18m2
*Garden of 2000m2
*Central heating
As I said, the look of the property really is very nice.  As with most 'pavillions' from this time, the living accommodation is on the first floor and up.  There is a very nice terrace area to the front with doors opening up onto the lounge.  Perfect for outside eating!

I have outlined above, the rooms of the house.  The interior is actually in good condition!  Just colour and decor may not be to everyone's taste ...  or should I say anyone's taste!!  I have seen a few of these properties re-decorated in modern minimalist style, or even with just white walls and they look very classy and very elegant!  Along with re-decoration, the property would certainly benefit (and so would you ) from a new kitchen and bathroom.

Two of the bedrooms are on the first floor and two have been made in the attic space.  A little bit of a negative point is that the corridor between those bedrooms has not been finished... So a little work needed there to finish it off and make good.  However, there is enough space there to make another bathroom if desired.

The garage underneath is huge, measuring 53m2.

My view:  A beautiful house with comfortable living proportions.  Most properties you would probably want to re-decorate to your own tastes anyway so present embossed, raised, shiny flowery wallpaper should not be a put off!   Not major works either, so that is a real bonus.
