The great thing about farmhouses is the large number of buildings that make up the whole property and the potential these offer for conversions. While this might daunt some buyers, keen renovators are always on the lookout for old farm properties so they can turn various barns, pigeonniers, stables and warehouses into gîtes, guesthouses, artist studios and more.
This lovely property has such flexibility with the added bonus that a barn has already been converted. On one side is a two-bedroom house and on the other is a converted barn of 200m2, fitted with double-glazing and central heating. Both houses have lovely character features including original chestnut and stone floors.
Outside is a private courtyard with olive trees and a covered terrace, perfect for alfresco dining. It sits on three acres of land including meadows, which would be ideal for horses, and gardens planted with trees and flowers. It’s set in a hamlet just 15 minutes from Villefranche-de-rouergue, which has all the amenities you’ll need. beauxvillages.com
