Beautiful mediaeval farmhouse, fully restored, overlooking unspoiled rural beauty spot  € 295000

Description

This part stone-walled farm and barns, dating from Mediaeval times, has been sympathetically restored to provide comfortable, characterful accommodation. There are four bedrooms, each with wonderful views, three bathrooms, two of them en suite. The house has played host to numerous guests and has provided an inspiring venue for writers and artists. The 1/3 acre garden, mostly laid to lawn, is easy to maintain. Outbuildings include an old wood-fired bread over, still completely intact and currently serving as a pantry. There is a fully fitted study/library with telephone points and wifi in the smaller of the two barns. The larger barn serves as a workshop and extra storeroom for the property. A garage and outside parking area provides parking for six cars. The property stands one minute's walk away from the village of Martrin so you will enjoy privacy when you want it and proximity to the village's cosmopolitan mix of inhabitants when you feel sociable. 
This is an area of outstanding natural beauty with fields and forests and the River Tarn only a few minutes away. The village of Martrin has a wonderful bistro with a small grocer's shop and sub post office attached. At the bottom of the road is the Carles Roquefort dairy where you can order this self-styled cheese of kings and king of cheeses. You'll also be able to order bread from one of the village's two bakers. There are plenty of markets nearby, selling produce grown or raised locally. Within easy reach are numerous bistros. Horse riding, a simple water leisure centre and canoing on the river Tarn are all nearby. Throughout the year the area provides local entertainment, fetes and feasts, concerts in ancient churches, attic sales and antique fairs. You couldn't find anywhere a more typical slice of French country life.
