A large stone farmhouse to renovate set in 2 acres with a stone ruin, well and views, near Laroque-Timbaut in the Lot et Garonne. This 5 bedroom house is quite habitable but rather messy right now. With a good spring clean, decoration, new bathrooms and kitchen and drainage, it offers a lot of house at a reasonable price.
Private drive entrance to parking in front of the house.
Entrance hall leading to kitchen, with tiled floor and beamed ceiling, dining room on a mezzanine overlooking the spacious living room below, with wood-burning stove and exposed stone walls and access to garden. Large study room behind.
On the ground floor are 2 spacious double bedrooms with views and a tiled shower room.
Upstairs are 3 further double bedrooms and a shower room. Under the house is a large wine cellar cut into the rock.
There are 2 acres of lawned gardens around the house, with a well and several apricot trees. In one corner the ruins of a small barn and 'Pigeonnier'.
With some investment in time and money, this could become a really nice country home. Laroque Timbaut with its shops, market and restaurants is just 5 mins.
Tax Fonciere is approx. 830 euros a year.
Toulouse and Bergerac airports 75mins
The department of Lot et Garonne in Aquitaine has many small yet lively villages and this department in the south of France is a real find for both nature and culture lovers.
One of Lot et Garonne’s assets are the views afforded by the properties over the Garonne or the Lot lush countryside with woodland and lots of leisure activities. The residents have invested well with most of them living in detached houses that are their principal residences. There are however lots of holiday or second homes to choose from.
Compared to the more expensive Perigord or Gers, the Lot et Garonne still holds some bargain French property buys. Perhaps a village home or a traditional stone house in a green environment is what you are looking for, if so, this area is the perfect place to invest in a second home.
Stripping out the usual fluctuations, the housing market in the region has been steadier than most. Long term investments may offer a good return in the future as the Lot-et-Garonne is increasingly appealing amongst foreign purchasers, just like the whole of the region of Aquitaine.
