At the end of a lane with a view over Cordes-sur-Ciel and 1 km from the train station this 3 bedroom property with 2 bedroom annexe benefits, not only from a superb location but also from 30 acres of land and a 2 acre lake. The lake is fed by a spring and allows automatic irrigation of the orchard, gardens and meadows, not forgetting to fill the pool too, of courseÂ! On top of this, there are two more wells on the property - what a magnificent advantage to be able to water the lawn and gardens to your heart?s desireÂ!
The land is half meadow and half woodland... perfect! With the accent on ecology the hot water is produced by solar panels. The large salt-water pool has state of the art equipment installed this year and it is located slightly away from the house with beautiful long-reaching views.
The 3 bedroomed, 2 bathroomed house itself has been carefully renovated preserving the original stonework, exposed beams and terracotta floor tiles, combined with double glazed windows, central heating and a wood burning stove in the living room, it is a very comfortable property in winter and summer. A separate dining room (also with woodburning stove) leads to the fully-fitted wood kitchen and from here you stop out onto the terrace overlooking the lake. Attached to the house is a self-contained annex with kitchenette, two bedrooms and shower room on the ground floor and the possibility to convert the first floor to create more living space (at least two more bedrooms and bathroom)- subject to necessary permissions. The barn on the first floor between the house and the annexe could also be converted and could either extend the house, the annexe or create another independant living space. The current owners have already obtained planning permission and have architects drawings to extend the house into this area. A garage at the side of the property provides storage for equipment and also houses the oil fired boiler.
Lots of possibilities for either a farm income, a holiday income or both. With the water, solar panels and wood heating you could also imagine living almost autonomously off the land.
Alternatively you could just come and raise a glass in the gazebo watching the sun set over Cordes-sur-Ciel.
Unique property in a peaceful location with no close neighbours? don?t miss outÂ!
