Details

A LOVINGLY RESTORED & SPACIOUS DETACHED FAMILY HOME in a picturesque rural location, ideal for exploring the beautiful National Park in which it is located. The house is set in the department of Aveyron, within the Midi-Pyrénées Region in the south of France.

‘La Bastinde’ is a stunning French country farm house in an elevated and commanding position, offering panoramic views over a lush green valley.

The house has been sympathetically restored to an impeccable standard and would serve as a wonderful family home or vacation rental with opportunity to easily configure a self-contained annexe.

This three-storey farmhouse boasts generously proportioned accommodation of just under 250 sq.m., and rests on an independent plot with generous gardens.

The top floor comprises two very large double bedrooms, a third double bedroom, a separate wc room, a shower room and a sizeable hallway with skylights and original exposed beams and stonework.
The middle floor comprises an entrance porch, a large modern fitted kitchen (which includes underfloor heating) comprising a central island and dining area. The kitchen opens onto a large balcony through double French doors. The middle floor also has a large lounge with 10Kw multi-fuel fire, a separate wc room, a stylish bathroom with roll-top bath and a generous hallway.
The ground floor comprises three large rooms currently modelled as a fourth bedroom (with garden access through double French doors), a second dining room and a games room with full size table tennis table. In addition, there is a fully-plumbed utility room and a separate shower room with wc. This layout is flexible in its construction and could be used for extra bedrooms or as a self-contained annex with its own entrance and access to the gardens.
Key Improvements:
The house is fully glazed throughout with modern upvc windows, in keeping with the local environment
The roof has been completely insulated, re-slated and the chimney has been rebuilt
All internal walls have been re-plastered
All floors, internal walls and stairs are new, as are the finishes

Whilst the house has been completely renovated, the original style and feel of the house has been preserved including historic features.
There are gardens to the rear and side of the house as well as a large grassy meadow extending from the side garden (purchased with potential for installing a pool).
The house rests beside a quiet country lane with multiple local facilities only 5 minutes away, including:
Shop/Bar/Restaurant run by a popular, welcoming local couple (with fluent English)
Communal leisure facilities including outdoor pool and tennis courts
A beautiful hotel with an excellent restaurant, heated pool and cycle hire, including electric bikes (again with fluent English)
