In the French department of Lot-et-Garonne, in the midst of the Aquitaine region, equidistant from Bordeaux and Toulouse. Fifteen minutes from Agen, a town with 100,000 inhabitants with its aerodrome and its 3 daily return flights to Paris-Orly as well as a TGV train station that will put Paris 190 minutes away as of next June. This house is near to a slip road for the A62 motorway. The little historic village that stretches out in the valley below has miscellaneous shops, a school and a bank. The surrounding countryside is remarkably unspoilt.
This house appears around a bend in the lane, revealing the full length of its south-facing facade, as well as the north-south-facing wing set at right angles and the outbuildings. All the rooms on the ground floor run from east to west, thus featuring an exceptional luminosity courtesy of the French windows on the south side. They all have an endless view of the Pyrenean mountains. The everyday entrance is via the kitchen.
On the north side, the corner between the house and the outbuildings forms an open courtyard set out around an immense hornbeam tree, surrounded by cotoneaster bushes. Lighting is provided by Napoleon III style streetlights. A little wall borders the slope, enhanced by a hedge of hibiscus, trimmed into little trees. In the middle, the cast iron facade of an old fountain conceals the water meter. The access driveway and its wrought iron gates can be seen from the courtyard. At right angles, a buffer room set between the two buildings houses the boiler room, a laundry room and a storage area. It is followed by two large buildings with packed mud floors and quarry stone block walls, spanning a total floor surface area of approx. 180 m². The former tack room, which was adjoined to the first of said buildings, is now a bedroom with carpet on the floor, exposed joists in the ceiling and a separate adjoining toilet. The old roofing framework of these two barns is exposed; insulation has been installed between the joists. Two French windows in each of the buildings open on to the entrance courtyard. The openings that illuminate the second building have been closed using glass tiles, providing light on the north side.
This residence appears to be what is left of a once rich, much bigger property. It stands out courtesy of its view, its silence and its ideal orientation as the undulating land protects it from dominant winds: roses even bloom sometimes during the winter months. Near to a village and the main communication routes, this house will appeal to all those who enjoy contemplation as well as those seeking to live a quiet retirement without being isolated. Both barns, given their size, could be converted into living space so as to accommodate family or passing visitors. These large areas could also house a craftsman’s activity, a small company or even be used for exhibition purposes. It would also be possible to raise horses as this was their former vocation.
