An old, traditional Mas house, now a holiday home, with seven hectares in the White Quercy region.
In the south of the French department of Lot, in the White Quercy region. An area with gently undulating countryside where hills covered with pubescent oak trees as well as boxwood, hazel tree and juniper undergrowth alternate with barer areas, providing glimpses of the white limestone, symbolic of this part of the former province. There where numerous rivers and streams have gouged fertile valleys in which cereal crops, fruit and vines are grown. The architectural heritage is outstanding with medieval fortified “bastide” towns, hilltop villages, castles, Romanesque churches, Gallo-Roman vestiges and windmills. Agen and Toulouse (TGV train stations and international airports) are some 80 minutes away; Cahors, Montauban and Caussade are about 30 minutes away; Lalbenque, one of the truffle capitals, is less than 20 minutes away. Ten minutes by car from a pleasant medieval town where shops and amenities meet all daily needs. Markets, fairs and even interesting cultural events are also held there.
This property is reached via a lane, almost 1,500 m long, providing a wonderful view of the natural surroundings. At the end, it is possible to glimpse the outline of the old 15th century “borie” or rural farm, that became a traditional Mas farmhouse, with its small group of buildings, as of the 18th century. These buildings are now divided into two separate properties, including this southernmost one which is for sale.
Set in the peace and quiet, it stands on a hillside, providing an unobstructed view over the colourful plain and the tops of the trees surrounding it. The buildings reflect architecture typical of this part of the French department of Lot. The white stone and low, Roman tile roofs bestow the property with a virtually southern atmosphere. A small, 21 m² building, once a grape-drying shed and now used for storage purposes, marks the entrance to the property next to a traditional “caselle” or dry-stone cabin, covered with lauze stone slabs. The curving driveway makes it possible to identify numerous trees of various species, dry-stone walls, vegetable patches and, above all, several areas ideal for taking a peaceful stroll or eating outside and appreciating the different aspects of the estate. The drive comes to an end near to the main house characterised, on the one hand, by a south-facing “bolet” or porch typical of local houses and, on the other hand, by its outbuildings and a swimming pool with its 41.5 m² pool-house, all looked down on by a very pleasant terrace. The house is of a reassuring size and the layout of the buildings provides the property with genuine privacy.
The main houseAlthough the origins of this property most probably date back to the 15th century, these buildings were constructed during the 19th century and were then extended and fully restored by the current owners at the beginning of the 2000’s. Both plain and harmonious, the house spans approx. 200 m² of living space (excluding the cellar and the machine rooms on the garden level) over three levels. Forming a quadrilateral, it has numerous openings, letting in copious amounts of light and helping to maintain permanent contact with the delightful surroundings. The “bolet” or porch, typical of traditional local houses, provides access to the rooms, lounge and study, on the upper floor and acts as a covered terrace. The inside, restored in keeping with the spirit of the premises whilst installing modern day home comforts, comprises comfortable, convivial rooms and a somewhat refined style, enhancing the quality of the materials used and the period features which have been preserved such as fireplaces, a stone sink, exposed sections of the roofing framework, old doors, a small-paned interior window and period shutters.
