Agence Hamilton is very pleased to present this rare historical property. Situated in the hills of the Tarn et Garonne, accessed by a long driveway, this haven is a must-see for those wanting peace and tranquillity. The main house, a property on one level with 145m² of habitable space and lots of original features, forms one side of the grassed & beautifully planted courtyard garden. On two other sides you have outbuildings, one of which is in excellent condition with a 200m² vaulted room and a 235m² gallery above with tommette tiles, stone walls and a good roof. On the fourth side of the square you find the wall of the Château. Dating from the end of the 15th century, it was revamped in the 1540s and the north face has a distinctly Renaissance feel. Having had several noble owners over the years, it was sold in 1811 to the local solicitor. By 1900, it was already decommissioned and in a poor condition but it still stands proud on the hilltop, protecting the property behind. It should dominate the garden but it doesn't the well-thought out garden softens the façade and seeing the sunlight coming through the window openings of the Chateau from the covered terrace opposite is quite extraordinary. While redevelopment of the Chateau is of course possible, & maintenance is preferable, there is no obligation to do either. The property offers massive potential. The house is in good condition and very habitable, with three good sized (25m², 18m², 17m²) renovated bedrooms. There are lots of good features tommette tiles, old fireplaces, nice windows but there are also some modernisation works which may need to be done (central heating, a new bathroom and kitchen). The house also offers a large living room/kitchen, a back kitchen and a large salon. Next to the house, you find the original entrance to the property the only entrance at the time which now leads to the back garden of the property. Above this there is an artist's studio with a balcony giving views over the countryside to the west and a view of the beautiful garden from the windows. Next to this is an open games room/workshop. The outbuilding opposite the Chateau is extraordinary - two floors in very good condition giving over 400m² of space with a good roof. It could be used to create another house, a room for events, an exhibition space ..There is a small balcony off the first floor gallery, currently covered in creeper, giving dappled views of the Chateau & garden a perfect spot for an afternoon snooze or an aperitif. There is another outbuilding to complete the square which is also in good condition but may need works to the roof. Part of this building has been beautifully renovated to form a small studio apartment. It consists of one room on the ground floor with a shower room, and a room upstairs. With the addition of a small corner kitchen downstairs, this could be an independent unit. The property sits in 7200m² of land and is accessed by a long drive that is maintained by the commune. The fields surrounding the property belong to two locals and are mainly organic. The garden has a well which is used to water plants and vegetables. It is an idyllic dream hidden, beautiful, surrounded by nature & history, and no noise except for the birds and the frogs!
