A charming,18th century traditional stone farmhouse set in a tranquil wooded valley with spectacular views across fields and the river Cère. This detached Perigordine property is situated in Northern Lot, near the Correze border and has numerous beauty spots near by. It also has a stone barn which has development potential.

Externally there is .7 hectare of land, most of which is given over to informal lawn, trees and shrubs. There is an attractively planted, decked terrace which is accessed from the kitchen and an old bread oven and pig house which needs renovation but which could become additional accommodation (STC) or an attractive garden feature.

The house has double glazing throughout and the heating is via a wood burning stove and electric radiators. Plenty of the original features remain - exposed beams, cantou, souillarde, wooden floors and beautiful stonework. There is a satellite dish currently directed for UK television. Broadband.


The village of Gagnac sur Cère is a few minutes away and has a small shop/post office. Laval de Cère is a few minutes in the opposite direction and has more amenities - chemist, butcher, baker, etc. as well as a train station. The neighbouring towns Biars sur Cère and Bretenoux are 5-10 minutes away and have all the amenities as well as a twice weekly market.

There is a train station at Biars and Laval de Cère which has a local service that goes to Aurillac or Brive. Trains leave regularly from Brive to Paris and take just over 4 hours. The nearest airport is Brive (45 minutes away) which has flights to the UK and Paris. Limoges, Rodez and Toulouse airports are 2 hours away with international flights.

The property information and photographs we have published have been provided by the vendor. We publish them in good faith, but cannot warrant their accuracy, completeness or legality. Please confirm the exact location of any property we advertise with the vendor as the location indicated on any maps provided may not be exact. There is no estate agency commission to pay us if you buy this property following an introduction by us.


The hub of the ground floor is a large, triple-aspect living room with original features and views over the valley and river Cère. Also on the ground floor are a bedroom, bathroom and lovely light-filled kitchen which leads out onto a spacious, sunny deck area - the perfect place to enjoy your breakfast and start the day.


At the top of the stairs is an open area that gets sun all day from its east and west-facing windows and a corner salle d’eau with wc and basin and plumbing for a shower unit. There is a loft hatch to a further room which could be converted to a delightful bedroom with quadruple aspect or one could divide the existing room into a bedroom and study area. Leading from this area is a large and imposing open room with lovely views across the valley. It is currently divided into a seating and bedroom area but could be converted into two bedrooms if desired. The current owner feels that this area is too attractive to "modernise" as it typifies the character of a Perigordine house.


Large area that extends under most of the house.


With stone walls and a tile roof, the main area is a huge double height space - 6m x16m. The barn is built on a slope so both ground floor and cellar have direct access. There is loads of potential for conversion which is permissible under commune land codes (conversion to dwelling and extension of up to 50%).


The bread oven and piggery - the roof is decaying but the stone walls are sound and it would make a lovely guest annex.



Most of the property is grassland with trees and a small stream running through part of it. A decking area is accessed from the kitchen to one side of the property which gets the morning and afternoon sun.
