A cottage with beautiful barn in a small hamlet waiting for you!

Ref:  6433S      

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

Another little gem! Situated centrally in a small hamlet of houses, just 10 minutes from Souillac, is where you will find this lovely little cottage with one of the prettiest little barns....  it was difficult to take photo's of the cottage because of the trees!
The rear of the cottage and the barn.  (The piece of wood is for a hammock!!)
*3 bedrooms
*Attic space
*Barn of 60m2
*Garden of 500m2.

The cottage is very much in it's original style but is also perfectly habitable.  Lots of exposed stonework and beams...  and a huge fireplace in the kitchen!  As we find quite often, there is no fitted kitchen but an independent arrangement of units.  Well to be honest - I prefer starting from that base and buying new as it would probably only have been those old sort of brown kitchens anyway, had one been in place!!! 

The cottage has 75m2 of habitable living space.  So, it is on the smaller size but perfectly adequate for a couple or a holiday home.  There are three bedrooms but there is room in the attic for a further bedroom if required.  

All in pretty good shape.  Nothing more than DIY skills needed to make the cottage perfect!

In the garden is as I said, one of the most attractive little barns.  It's not too big, so if someone had a project to renovate it into living accommodation it would be a very do-able project.  It has really lovely door openings and is so light and bright.  Internal height is also good.  The stonework is in excellent condition.  You can see from the photo's...  internally especially.  If animals were kept here - it must have been a very long time ago and it has been very well cleaned and no strands of straw or hay in sight!!

The garden has not had much done with it - just the grass cut.  So a little imagination would really transform this place.

My view:  A lovely little place.  Not much needed to get this up to being perfect!  The barn here adds so much charm.  Should be one for your short-list!
