This attractive farmhouse sits on an elevated plot, on a very peaceful lane with just a handful of other properties, overlooking pretty, undulating countryside. It is only 5 minutes from the beautiful medieval town of Eymet with its bars, restaurants, shops, schools and thriving expat community and very close to another medieval town with all amenities and large supermarkets. A highly sought-after location!
The potential is enormous. The price reflects the cosmetic refreshing that is required throughout the property, but it is structurally sound and perfectly habitable immediately. It really is a blank canvas that you can develop as much or as little as you like to fit your exact requirements. There is room for a pool and considerable scope to extend the footprint of the house into the attached barns, thus creating either a lovely large family home, or even some letting rooms.
This is a superb opportunity to acquire a traditional farmhouse in a highly desirable location, with lovely views AT AN AFFORDABLE PRICE POINT.
If you are excited by the prospect of transforming this into the property of your dreams, don’t delay to book a viewing now. It is priced to sell and will not hang around.
This property’s layout is absolutely typical of this style of beautiful, period farmhouse. The accommodation is arranged in a linear format on the ground floor, with most rooms opening onto the front terrace. An adjoining barn runs the length of the property to the rear and wraps around the far end. These type of farmhouses typically have a full-length loft on the first floor which in this case, has already been converted to habitable space and, unusually, has full head room. Part of the barn has been converted into a bedroom and bathroom already in this property, but there is enormous scope to develop into the remaining barn area.

This is situated at the far end of the property and runs from front to back, leading off the front terrace. There is direct access from the lane via double wooden doors. There are the most fabulous countryside views from this part of the property, especially with the removal of some greenery.
