On the edge of town. A big house with overpowering wallpaper!

Ref:  6328                                                          SOLD!!!

Price:  109.000€   Reduced to 98.000€ (agency fee included). 

On the French details, this one states that there are only two bedrooms.  However, actually, it has sort of been transformed into two apartments so you could in fact have 4 bedrooms, or more if you convert the attic also!  It's a large property with a surface of 284m2.
Situated just on the outskirts of Souillac, within just a few paces of the town centre.  It does have two roads, one either side, which is why the asking price is lower. ( These are only used by locals).  However, that is just one of the things about living near to the centre of town.  If you don't like living rural then maybe this one could be of interest as you can walk to the shops during the day and walk home from the restaurant at night!
This is a stone built property.  Exterior wise it's not in bad shape.  It needs a bit of an overhaul here and there - slipped guttering, that kind of thing.  Roof looks good.

The interior - well!!!!  Step back into the 70's ladies and gentlemen!  It certainly needs modernizing throughout.  Busy busy, flowery wallpaper covers nearly every available wall, ceiling even doors!  The lovely avocado bathroom suite is just a bonus!!  However, it must be said that this property has a feeling of quality about it.  The woodwork is fantastic and the rooms large and very bright and light.

Entering into the property  you have the kitchen to your right.  On the left is a huge lounge of 31m2.  There is a bedroom and bathroom on this floor.

Upstairs there is another bedroom of 17m2, a large lounge of 29m2, another kitchen and another bathroom.

There is the attic space of 32m2.
Under the house is a full basement of 71m2.  A garage of 18m2.

Quite a large garden for a town house.  1300m2 in total and it has a little building also....

My view:  Rip down that wallpaper for starters!  Paint in light colours, new bathrooms and kitchen and revert back to 4 bedrooms.  Plant the garden and enclose it more to give privacy.  You would end up with a very nice, spacious house indeed!

  1. I am mesmerized by the wallpaper. I do love the house, it's front face is open and welcoming and I'd love to see the wallpaper in person!
