Cheap cheap cheap!!! A village house!!

Ref:  6753s                                                    SOLD (STC) next day!  

Price:  77.400€ (agency fee included)

Wow, how interesting is this one!!  Now bracing myself for the enquiries..... and you've got to be very quick, this is an absolute bargain!
Situated centrally in a small, quiet little village between Souillac and Gourdon in the LOT, South West France.  The property is in great condition with the exterior and only needs refreshing inside... a little bit of TLC.  A good DIY'er will be in his element.  If any of you saw the English version of the T.V programme 'A Place in the Sun' when I did my little stint on there - it's in the same village as was featured!

*4 Bedrooms

*Independent garage

*300m² garden.

A beautiful old stone built house, substantial and nice squarish rooms with high ceilings.  Enough exposed stonework but also light and bright.   There is only really re-decoration to do here and some touching up here and there where there is the odd missing piece of skirting board and a broken pain of glass for example but nothing major.  There is a full central hearing system.  

The lounge is a very nice room indeed.  Good size 28m².  The kitchen is 14m² and is basic but a visit to Ikea will simply and cheaply make over that room!

The bathroom is also downstairs.  It's a good size (for once!).  On the details, this property is marked down as 4 bedrooms.  This property, as like many others in France, has one of the rooms leading from another....  in my mind this would be an ideal dressing room (meaning keeping it as three bedrooms) or perhaps a second bathroom?

The garden is perfect size for a holiday home or people not interested in gardens!  Enough room to enjoy outside dining and easy to keep.  To the side of the property is access into the cellar.

There is a very useful independent garage.  37m² in total.  
My view:  Bargain!!  Whatever property you buy you expect to re-decorate to your taste (and lets face it - dark blue painted skirting boards and green walls are not to most peoples taste!!).  Love the village, love the property!!  Organise your trip over to view!!
