With over 500 square metres of spacious accommodation and sleeping 12 in great comfort, it is an ideal family or second home with the potential for high-end letting. A great advantage is the proximity to Toulouse airport, an easy cross-country drive of 45 minutes. The property is well served for Wi-Fi reception throughout.
The house was completely converted and professionally restored by the former owners with renewed electrical, plumbing and heating systems, insulation and double glazing. The accommodation is particularly light and spacious with an attractive dining room leading directly from the kitchen. One of the main features of the house is the magnificent triple aspect salon, measuring 90 square metres, with a large open fireplace. A handsome staircase in oak rises to a galleried landing and a master bedroom of 52 square metres. Five further bedroom suites are between 20 and 30 square metres, and all have large ensuite bathrooms.
Beside the main house is a traditional double-towered Lomagnol pigeonnier, currently serving as a guardian's cottage. A separate barn, ideal for games and as a storage space, includes the pool pump-room, garden and tool shed.
