Property Description

Set down a private drive in about 2,7 ha of mainly woodland with lovely views over the top of woodland and also towards Najac castle in the distance, this beautifully presented 4 bedroom house was brought by the present owners over 30 years ago and has been extended twice to provide the present accommodation without losing the charm of the original 1800's cottage.

The main works that have been undertaken to the property include two complete extensions, renovation of the old part of the house, insulation, double glazed windows, gas fired central heating system, new kitchen and bathrooms and all these works make for an ideal family house where you can bring your suitcases.  Some of the furniture may also be available to purchase.

The views from the house, swimming pool and the terrace are wonderful with Najac Castle in the distance and there are lovely walks through the woods below the house.  Having sat for a while on the terrace with a glass of wine overlooking the views with just the sound of birdsong is wonderful and very relaxing.
