Wonderful farmhouse with outbuildings for sale

Allez-Francais Sarl have a wonderful 4 bedroom (+ 2) farmhouse with outbuildings for sale. It comes with a swimming pool and is set in 2.8 HA.


Situated just a short distance from the River Dordogne, this is a wonderful, authentic farmhouse that has been renovated to a good standard and requires absolutely no work. Sitting upon almost 3 ha, there is scope for a buyer as an equestrian property, a business (such as Bed & Breakfast), or just a fabulous family home.

Surrounded by quiet country lanes, this is a haven for the discerning buyer looking for a rural retreat that is not isolated. Indeed, the popular village of St Sozy is literally 2 km away.

You enter the C19th farmhouse directly into the inviting open plan dining salon & kitchen. The salon has a beautiful parquet floor, with wonderful wide boards, exposed stone walls, and feature beam work. The kitchen, very much the heart of the house, has a tiled floor, open fireplace with a dual system of heating. A good range of kitchen units and plenty of room for a kitchen table as the focal point.



Off the dining room / salon area is a ground floor bedroom, again on a parquet floor, and this bedroom like the other principal bedrooms has its own en-suite shower room.


Also on the ground floor is a lovely lounge, with double aspect, and this room is therefore very luminous, and has warm walls, and a chestnut floor. Adjoining the lounge is a laundry room, housing the gas boiler, plumbing for washing machine and plenty of storage. A staircase leads out of this room to the 1st of the guest bedrooms.


The “blue” bedroom is in fact a family suite, with another room adjoining, ideal for children, plus an en-suite shower room.

The other bedrooms are accessed via a 2nd staircase leading out of the kitchen / dining area. The “yellow” room has lovely featured beam work, and an adjoining en-suite shower room. The final suite comprises of a small ante room before you discover the 4th main bedroom with en-suite facilities, and a smaller bedroom (again ideal for children). Thus in total there are actually 6 bedrooms, but realistically there are 4 plus 2.



Outside, there is a very nice terrace area, ideal for “al-fresco” dining. There are several distinct garden areas to enjoy, including the pool area. The salt water pool measures 10 x 5 metres and has a tiled surround. Within the grounds is a small walnut grove, attractive lawned approach and a large paddock suitable for livestock.



There are a number of useful outbuildings, including a large barn, (2 storeys high), and with a floor area of around 140m², therefore offering excellent stabling or conversion opportunities. There is also a very attractive piggery with “ardoise” roof, a large open hangar, with a garage below, plus a workshop / garage.


The property has the benefit of modern gas central heating, (gas tank discreetly hidden in the garden), and in addition it has a solar panel for heating the hot water, backed up by a secondary system when needed. In the garden there is a large water reserve, which harvests rainwater, and is used for watering the garden.

The lovely village of St Sozy is just 2 km away, where you will find bars, and small shops, including a butcher & boulangerie. For larger towns, Martel is 11 km and Souillac 7 km. For anyone interested in starting a tourist based hospitality business, Padirac, Rocamadour & Sarlat are all a short drive, plus you are right on the doorstep of the River Dordogne and the many activities that are enjoyed here.
