House Montcuq (46)

  • Surface 300 m2
  • Rooms 9 
  • Bedrooms 4 
  • Land 5 548 m2

A comfortable, 18th century residence in a peaceful hamlet in the White Quercy region.
In the south of the French department of Lot, 1½ hours from Toulouse (TGV train station and international airport), an hour from Agen (TGV train station) and less than 20 minutes from Cahors, a major stopover along the Way of St James, the main pilgrimage route to Spain. A region with gently undulating countryside where the hills of downy oaks and the boxwood, hazel tree and juniper undergrowth, contrast with dryer areas where it is possible to glimpse the white limestone, symbolic of this part of the Quercy region. The fertile soil in the valleys and the favourable climate make it possible to grow cereal crops, fruit and vines. The variety of the region’s natural surroundings and its geographic location has led to the development of a wealth of varied plant and wildlife with strong Mediterranean influences. All this is in addition to the historic and architectural heritage that includes the Valentré bridge classified as a World Heritage site by Unesco, Saint-Etienne cathedral, medieval villages of Montpezat-du-Quercy, Lauzerte, the keeps of Montcuq and Luzech, as well as Gallo-Roman vestiges, mills, Romanesque churches and numerous castles.
This property, surrounded by approx. 5,500 m² of land, stands in a privileged position in the midst of a little hamlet, composed of houses, with harmonious architecture, spaced well apart to preserve privacy. It is predominantly surrounded by a high, thick hedge. The property is accessed on the north side via large wooden gates, supported on masonry pillars set on traditional, low, dry-stone walls. A large car parking area is laid out facing the residence and looking down on a landscaped garden with fruit trees as well as squares for growing vegetables. The house is extended southwards by a large, partially covered terrace, spanning approx. 30 m², with a carport under the covered section; then, by another building also used for the same purpose. In front, a large area, laid to lawn, is dotted here and there with various species of trees. On the east side, by a flight of steps leading to the terrace, a superb lime tree provides welcome shade during the summer and is an invitation to sit on monolithic benches and enjoy the unobstructed view. In this spot, steeped in peace and quiet, the boldly preserved vestiges of a wall of an old building enhance the décor, whilst paying tribute to the mystic traces of times gone by. A few metres away, adjoining a boxwood garden, another single-storey, stone construction houses a bread oven as well as tools and garden equipment.
The residenceThis house, constructed from regional white stone, spans three levels, one of which is a converted attic floor and another includes vaulted cellars and utility rooms. It is topped with a traditional hip roof, covered in Roman tiles, which features three shed dormers on each of the east and west slopes. The north-east corner is flanked by a dovecote tower, built according to local tradition on the principle of superposed vaults and topped with a hip roof, covered in flat tiles. Fully restored throughout, this house spans approx. 300 m² of living space, with rooms of a comfortable size and a resolutely refined style, cleverly combining the old with the new, whilst enhancing the quality of the materials used and certain respectfully preserved, period features such as the original and Auberoche stone floors, a stone sink transformed into a fountain, a straight stairway with monolithic steps, a “cantou” fireplace, vaulted rooms, exposed beams and roofing framework, solid wooden doors embellished with nails, wall recesses, etc.
Immaculately kept, bright and pleasant to live in, this house comprises the following main rooms: an entrance hall, a lounge opening into a dining room-kitchen area, extended …
