A very stylish house with a little TLC!

Ref:  6390s

Price:  149.000€   Reduced to 139.500€ !! (agency fee included)

Built in the 70's and still has the same decor!!  But this is a very well constructed house and certainly lots of money was spent on the original construction and finishings.  Marble staircase and lots of ironwork everywhere give this property a special touch of luxury.  It's been left, untouched for several years, without being lived in or heated so looks a little tired and dirty, however, a modest modernisation project will get this one looking pretty swish in no time at all.

Situated just on the outskirts of the town of Souillac, in fact just about three minutes!  Huge garden in front although now rather untidy now, it's difficult to see the house as it lies almost to the rear of the land.  The now weed covered driveway and path takes you down to the house. Private rear garden.

*2 bedrooms 17m2 and 12m2
*Kitchen 17m2
*Lounge 32m2
*Garage 34m2
* Boiler room
*Cave 30m2
*Central heating
*3075m2 garden

Although only having two bedrooms, this really is a spacious house.  The rooms are very good sizes.  Each room has an opening onto a balcony.  Each balcony has wrought ironwork railings...  as has the interior staircase.  Marbled stairs and floors in the main areas.  Yes this really was quite a posh house in it's prime!

The kitchen is large, the lounge very large indeed.  The two bedrooms, the main bedroom in particular being very comfortable size.  

Ok, so the photo's perhaps do not make this property very appealing but it actually only needs a good clean up and redecoration throughout with some tasteful decor and of course new kitchen and bathroom...  and it could be pretty amazing.  

I think that the garden must have been well planted and it could be a great experience to see what comes up in the spring!  I know that underneath all of the long grass is the hidden driveway and path so this also could look pretty incredible once cleared.  
To the rear of the property is a super terrace the width of the house.  The rear garden is private and quiet and actually has an old 'bassin' that many of these old 'bourgeois' houses had back in the day - could make a very nice fish pond!!!

My view:  Very nice property.  Nothing structural to do.  Just a make over and you could be living the life of luxury!!
