"Down by the River" is a smallholding comprising a partly renovated house with 212m² surface habitable, 2 barns, animal shelters and fully fenced land of 5.6 hectares.

Firstly, this is a great location. Just outside a small village, 5 minutes from Plaisance du Gers where most of your daily requirements will be met, yet in a nice private spot next to a river.

As you leave the village you cross a small bridge and the property is set back off the lane and the entrance leads you past the sheep shed and through an arch into a courtyard to the front of the house. The property is L-shaped with the house to the front and barns to the left with a small building currently used as a wood store forming the other side of the entrance behind you.

The house currently has 212m² surface habitable on the ground floor with the whole of the top floor in good condition and ready to be finished. You could easily fit in 2/3 bedrooms and bathrooms. A lovely front door leads into a tiled hallway where you will find the new wooden staircase leading up to the first floor and doors leading off to the current living accommodation.

This consists of a lounge, kitchen, rear hall, bedroom, dining room/office, shower room and WC, and a large utility/produce handling and storage room. The ground floor is tiled throughout, has new exposed beams and benefits from double-glazing.

The lounge is a good size with built-in bookcases, door to the kitchen and faces the courtyard.

The large bedroom has a wood-burner and overlooks the courtyard. The kitchen looks out to the rear and has been sympathetically renovated in a very French farmhouse manner with hand-made units, wood-burning stove supplying the ground floor radiators and ample work tops. A door from the kitchen leads to the dining room/office. This room is the full length of the building and has patio doors to the courtyard, 3 Velux windows, exposed beams and is a nice light room. Back to the kitchen!

Another door returns us to the rear hall where there is access to the shower room with toilet, electricity cupboard and the utility/processing room. From here a doorway takes you to the side barn. This barn has animal pens and access to the rear garden and also the main barn.

The rear garden has various enclosures, fenced vegetable plots, over 40 fruit trees and a chicken house. All has been well planned out even down to the pig enclosure having access to the empty vegetable plots to dig them over and fertilise them naturally. In fact all of the enclosures have been well planned and fenced. There is also a well.

Both barns have a concrete base and one has a feed to the septic tank.This oneis currently used for storage but does have lots of potential for conversion.

The whole property has new roofs and timbers.

This property has obviously had a lot of time and money ploughed into it by the current owners and is now ready for the next steps to be taken to enable it to fulfil its potential. It is a very realistically priced opportunity in a lovely location "Down by the River".
