Oldy worldy, cute, quaint and huge garden with pool and bread oven!

Ref 3426g

Price:  200.000€  (agency fee included)

Just two minutes from a super little village, is where we find this just fabulous little cottage, bread oven, garage  and swimming pool .  Such a quiet spot, with land of 20.000m².  About 20 minutes from the larger town of Gourdon in the LOT.  You have the impression that you are lost in the middle of nowhere, so if you want tranquillity this one maybe for you!

As my title suggests, it is just adorable!   Lovely French blue shutters and roses growing up over the old stonework make it so pretty.  The exterior is in good condition, the interior is very cottage like!   

*Kitchen/dining room 21m²
*Utility room
*Lounge of 28m²
*2 Bedrooms

*Bread oven 
*Swimming pool
*Land of 20 000m²

The garden surrounds the cottage with this one giving absolute privacy.  A very nice terrace area, shaped and surrounded by trees with views of the garden makes for a very inviting area for dining!  I have taken many photo's of the outside of this one and the garden as I found so beautiful in a very simple kind of way...
Inside we step into the kitchen/dining room and also a step back in time.  A little on the dinky side but it is a cottage!  There is a lovely wood burning stove too.  The small utility room and W.C are through to the left.

The lounge is a large room with a nice fireplace to one end, exposed beams and a door leading onto the conservatory the other end.

A word of warning here!  The stairs going up to the two bedrooms and bathroom are a little on the narrow side.  Larger framed people may have to turn a little sideways!  All the fun of living in an authentic cottage!

The two bedrooms are good enough sizes.  One slightly quirky thing is that the bathroom, which is a good size, is situated to one end of one of the bathrooms, in the tower in fact.  So you will have to know the other person/s who are in that bedroom quite well as you have to pass through!  However, in the other bedroom, there is a dressing room so another small bathroom could be made.

The old bread oven has actually been quite nicely restored and at present has been used as another bedroom for guests!  (Perfect for mother-in-laws!)

The pool has not been un-covered this year.  We have been told however that the liner was re-placed about two years ago and has always been maintained.  

There is a large garage.

My view:  So cute!  The location is outstanding.  The price too!  Interior could do with a refresh with a coat of paint but you could live in it directly.  If you are looking for peace and quiet and a large garden - this one should certainly be on your short-list!   A great price for a huge chunk of French countryside!
