A comfortable, country, stone house with a barn awaiting restoration on 3 ha of undulating land between Bordeaux and Toulouse.
Equidistant between Bordeaux and Toulouse, 20 minutes from Marmande and less than 30 minutes from a motorway slip road. Near to a small, once fortified village which still has its listed medieval castle and stone arches under the houses in the square, locally known as the “couverts” (covered market areas). Some shops provide a certain autonomy. This house is concealed in a cedar wood, very near to said village which can be seen from the terrace.
Separated from the village by a valley, this property comprises a group of restored buildings constructed on an older site, as is proved by a wall of the fortified village’s chapel. The facades are constructed from quarry stone blocks and small bricks as was traditional in this region of the French department of Lot-et-Garonne. Visitors follow a country lane and cross a small stream before reaching the gravel courtyard that separates the barn from the house.
The main houseThe appearance of the outside walls bears witness to the various construction periods: quarry stone blocks with generous pointing and small brick quoins, brick reconstruction walls, a section of the building destroyed (the wine storehouse) still featuring the base of the walls. This L-shaped residence, spanning approx. 480 m² of living space, predominantly faces south with an unobstructed view, the wooded section being behind the house. The floors on the ground floor are covered with old terracotta tiles which were removed for the installation of underfloor heating and then relaid in a refined geometric pattern. Some are stamped with a daisy for a reason that is no doubt linked to the house’s past.
Ground floor
The entrance, on the south side, is set between two buildings: the original house and the restored wine storehouse, set at right angles. The wooden door with a glazed window and ironwork grille, opens into an entrance hall forming a buffer between the house and the wine storehouse. A storage area has been created beneath the winding wooden stairway at the end. A corridor goes from the hall, on one side, to a south-facing study, looking out over the gravel courtyard. The lounge, at the end, is a vast, bright, rectangular room with a white-painted French ceiling. Its wide black marble fireplace is flanked by a French window and a window looking out over the valley below with the village perched on the horizon. A few stone-lined steps provide access to the gravel terrace. A door opens into a hall area leading to two bedrooms. The walls are painted white and decorated with highly Gustavian style motifs. The old cob mixed with hemp, produced and hence often used in this region, has been preserved for its good insulating virtues and simply whitewashed. The ceiling features white-painted, exposed joists and the floor strip pattern, wooden flooring. The adjoining bathroom has white tiles and a shower in an alcove covered with green glass mosaic. The separate toilet opens into the hall area which leads to a second bedroom. This is followed by a long room, in use as a laundry room and a shower room, with a shower, wash-hand basin and toilet. The boiler room is to be found right at the end.
Set at right angles to the entrance, a vast, east-west facing hall leads to the other section of the house, composed of a partially destroyed wine storehouse, the remains of which have been converted into accommodation. A French window opens on to a patio created in the destroyed section. On the north side, a small self-contained flat comprises a bedroom, a dressing room and a shower room. A very big picture window opens on to a tiled terrace, separated from a grassy hillock by a stone wall. The light flooding into this room and the garden appearing to come right inside …
