This is a typical Tarnaise farm house in need of updating. It is habitable but has no heating but does come with a smaller second house of around 50 sq.m that is fully habitable, ideal place to live in while carry out the works needed to the main house.
There are 5 bedrooms, large garden and plenty of outbuildings. The property is situated just outside the village of Cauhzac in glorious surroundings just 12 kms from Gaillac, 15 kms from the stunning hilltop bastide village of Cordes Sur Ceil with all its cafes, bars, restaurants and boulangeries. Toulouse can be reached in 60 mins.
All rooms are well proportioned and in the style of a Tarnaise farmhouse. From the sunny front entrance you enter the property with its lovely tiled floor. This leads off to the kitchen (18 sq.m) with fireplace, terracotta tiled floor, beamed ceiling and windows to the front and access to one of the covered barns (72 sq.m). On the other side of the entrance is the sitting room with fireplace (15 sq.m) and lovely ceramic tiles.
On the first floor, the landing leads off to bedroom 1 (15 sq.m), wood floor, fireplace; bedroom 2 (18 sq.m) similar to bedroom 1. Stairs to a large attic, part of which could be converted into additional living accommodation.
Outside, a private garden with lawn, mature trees and shrubs, stone outbuilding (bread oven). At the side and rear of the house is a good sized open fronted stone barns largest being around 70 sq.m. There is also the second property of around 50 sq.m.
This would be a lovely project as the house has not been spoilt in any way and would make a lovely holiday or permanent home close to a typical friendly French farming community and easy reach to Toulouse.
The map below shows the approximate location of the property.
The Midi-Pyrenees in the heart of south west France is the largest region in the country. From the Pyrenees to the valley of the Dordogne and from Gascony to the Gorges du Tarn, the diversity of its landscape is equalled only by the wealth of its heritage. This stunning area is renowned for its innate sense of celebration and visitors are often surprised by its friendly spontaneity.
Midi-Pyrenees is only 1.5 hours by plane from London and the Toulouse airport connects to many internal and international destinations. Paris is a 5 hour journey by TGV train, and as in most of France, the road network of motorways and dual carriageways is very good.If you are looking to escape from todays' 'rat race' and looking for an easy going and more gentle way of life in preserved surroundings, look no further than the majestic Secret Soul of France.
