A cute, cheap village house!

Ref:  5801s

Price: 50.000€ (agency fee included)

...  and what a nice little village it is!  Very popular in fact.  Situated just over into the Dordogne, between Souillac and Sarlat.  The village has all small commerce and a thriving bar!  The river Dordogne is within walking distance also.
The house itself is not huge ( you didn't expect a castle for this price did you? !) but is over three levels and lets say cosy!  However, I think this could be an ideal little bolt hole for someone looking for a small investment, without too much work.... and of course that is situated in a nice little plot in South West France!

*3 bedrooms
*A little outhouse 
(that is on the other side of the road!)

The exterior of the property is ok.  Needs the shutters painting and that will make the world of difference - nothing much more serious than that!

The interior needs an overhaul but it is perfectly habitable.  You enter into the kitchen from the little road that passes right through the village.  This is more of a corner kitchen, older style but  works well also with a little dining area.

You then walk through to the lounge.  Only about 13m², it has a little old fireplace in one corner.  Please paint over the pine cladding!  It's overbearing and appears to draw in all four walls making is seem thin and tall!  Painted in lovely light colours and with those double doors letting in all the light would make it very nice.

Upstairs you find the two bedrooms, the shower room (which is compact!) and the separate W.C.  Again all perfectly use-able.  

Going upstairs again into what was the attic, we find another bedroom, or in this case storage room for the xmas tree!  Next to that there is a little place for storage ...  or could this be made into another shower room perhaps???
Opposite there is a little outbuilding.  It is joined onto neighbouring property but is a great storage place or perhaps you could demolish it and make a little patio!!  

My view:  Well for this price you normally can't expect very much.  Have to say though, I thought it was cute.  With a very modest budget, a keen DIYer will do wonders with this little place. Simply can't go wrong if you want a little holiday home or investment to get a foot into France!
