A real original old French farmhouse and barn!

Ref:  6318g

Price:  299.000 (agency fee included)

A truly un-ruined French farmhouse, like stepping backwards in time....  and the old Mamie still lives there with her equally very aged dog!  In fact you will see the back of Mamie in one of the photo's as she was not going to move from her favourite spot at the dining room table where I got the feeling she stays all day!

*5 Bedrooms
*Lounge of 27m²
*Barn of 360m²
*Small barn of 40m²
*Land of 20 000m²

The property is situated between Gourdon and Cahors in the LOT.  About a five minute car ride to the nearest little shop and about 10 mins from the main town Gourdon.  Countryside location in a small hamlet.

Well what can I say about the condition?  Exterior is not bad at all.  Interior, well, some of it has not been changed in about 50 years I imagine!  But this is much more fun, you can actually work with the original features and make it how you want.  Sometimes, when places like this have had so called renovations, they have sometimes been done badly and some have had the original features removed - not this one!
There is a little kitchen on entering the property. Very French like!  Then you enter into the dining room - but this has a sink in it too (?????) so this could be a kitchen also!  Large room with a large cantou fireplace.  It looks dark and brown - but that is because of the French love of all dark furniture!  

The lounge room is next.  A very good sized room with some very nice features (cobwebs 'n' all!).  However, Mamie prefers her dining room so has not used this room in many many years.

The five bedrooms are all very good sizes.  Most of the rooms containing more than one bed!  There are also some other reminders of times gone by....  and yes they are probably still used!!  There is one in every room...  Mamie really does look after her guests.  I just had to take a photo for you!  

The barn is huge!  In great condition.  

The other little barn is also really cute.

My view:  A very nice original ensemble.  Think how this would look with some decorating alone.  Could be a stunning property!
