He he!! I love places with character and this one certainly has some!!
Situated right in the heart of Souillac, two steps to the town centre in fact. A very old cottage with a courtyard garden. Ok, so it needs a little love and attention but at this price it's such a do-able project.
As you walk in the front door there is a dining room to your right. (Perhaps this could become a kitchen or a bedroom). Behind that there is a bidet and washbasin - well lets just say plumbing is there! could be an en-suite shower??? Continuing on, there are three little rooms, ideal for storage. One at present contains several old, dirty, dusty bottle of wine ... perhaps vintage - who knows? !!
Next, duck down as you are likely to knock yourself out on the huge stone beam that leads you out to the courtyard. And what a great little space this could be. At the moment its all overgrown and has terrible lean-to contraptions on two of the walls. However, a good tidy up could make this a superb little area.
Onwards and upwards we go into the present kitchen. Large room! Looks very dark and dank as decor is very brown but a quick make over will transform not only this room but the whole house.
Then we go through into another room that was a bedroom. I think this would be better as a lounge because off of the lounge there is an old terrace that has been covered in to make a conservatory type of room. But is it a conservatory???????????? Noooooooooo!!!!!!! It's a bathroom!!!!!!!!!!! The loo is positioned to look out over the garden!!!!!! No curtains or blinds even...... Right to the far end there is a shower room so I'm sure you could move the loo in there or even re-position it somewhere else. This space will be much better as a real conservatory!
Upstairs again and we come into roof... This has already been converted into a good sized bedroom and what could be an office or small bedroom.
Just opposite the house is a large garage with parking.
My view: Overall, the exterior is in good condition and yes the interior needs perhaps a little re-thinking and certainly a make-over but I really like this little place. Could be a super little bolt hole to France!
