This beautifully restored barn is an architect’s delight, with the creation of a sumptuous home with a contemporary twist inside these old stone walls; set in a tranquil rural location with ancient woodland all around.

The property is set at the far end of a private driveway, in the heart of Lomagne, far from other neighbouring properties or roads, but within easy driving distance of the popular market-town of Saint Clar.

Grassland lies to the side and rear of the property and the current owners have created a rural paradise, with the production of their own vegetables, and a selection of happy four-legged creatures (no animals are used for meat in this zen environnement!), with goats, hens, and donkeys grazing on the luscious pasture!

The larger portion of land lies to the rear, beyond a superb and graceful oak- tree, that has dominated the landscape for several hundred years. Beyond here, private fields stretch into the distance, a line of donkeys creating a silhouette along the top of the furthest field against the setting sun; while the current owners have the pleasure of being able to take long walks with their dogs, on their own property.

The property has a raised wooden terrasse to the front and side, extending the habitable space outwards for summer dining.

The ground floor

We enter the property via large sliding glass doors, into a vast kitchen with cathedral-height ceilings, and exposed beams. The space is filled with light with views over the terrasse and beyond to the front of the property.

The kitchen, with its breakfast/dining-table and central island, opens onto the reception-room, and is divided only by a wood-burning insert stone.

The reception-room benefits from the same impressive ceiling-height and also from a second vast bay window and a window to the front of the property, creating both views and light : both of which are characteristic features of this property.

The mezzanine

A small stairway leads up to the mezzanine above the reception-area.

This space has been converted into an ideal play-area for the children, with a snug television area, and plenty of space for an occasional guest accommodation – or as an additional open-plan bedroom.

The ground floor

Back down the stairs, we enter a small hallway with a guest WC, a bathroom with both a shower and a bathtub, and three good sized bedrooms all on ground floor level. To the rear of the property, both from the hallway and the master bedroom there are panormaic views over the barn/outbuilding and private woodland.

The garden level

The lower garden level of the property is accesses via a central spiral staircase in metal that leads to a downstairs bathroom, a wine cellar, and a downstairs bedroom. The entire lower ground-floor is on garden level.

The outbuildings

There is a one guest-house at a comfortable distance from the house with one bedroom, shower-room, WC, kitchen and living-room. This property requires updating and has not been renovated.

This property is attached to a workshop and barn and is divided up into stables.

The favourite room

The impressive kitchen/ reception-room with its high ceilings and large bay windows over the countryside.

The favourite image from our visit

The far reaching-views over the garden and field to a line of donkeys grazing on the horizon behind the impressive three hundred-year old oak.
