Title 3 Bed Smallholding
Address Le Begue, Route de Roquefort, Saint Martory, 31360
Location Near Toulouse, France
Price £230,000
This property offers a change of lifestyle with a 10 acre smallholding to allow for "the good life" and/or easy commuting to Toulouse by both road and rail.

The property is a "fermette" comprising of a renovated two bedroom farm cottage with attached double barn, two room annex (3rd bedroom) and separate "Bergerie" with power and water set in 10 acres of flat, fertile land. Potential for 2 gites and building plots subject to permission.

The property is 45 minutes from Toulouse offering a rural location yet is close to the main transport links. It is situated 10 miles from the town of St. Gaudens and 1 mile from the local facilities at St. Martory which is within easy reach. The property is approximately 1 hour from a number of ski resorts/national parks popular with skiers/hikers which can be easily accessed by either road or rail. The property is a 5 minute drive from the A64 which provides access not only to Toulouse and the rest of France but also Northern Spain. There are two train stations within a short drive that give access to the French National rail network.

The main house consists of two double bedrooms (one with a wood burning stove), a dining kitchen (with a wood burning stove and oven), living room (with a Supra wood burning stove), bathroom and a laundry/pantry. There is a staircase leading to a large attic above the house offering further potential to extend the property. Attached to the house is a veranda and there is a patio situated to the front of the house both offering beautiful views to the garden, surrounding area and the Pyrenees. The property has recently been double glazed with traditional style doors and windows. There is also the potential to restore the original farm house dating back to 1768.

Outside Area
At the entrance to the property there is a substantial wall, faced with traditional river stones as well as panels along with mature hedging which offers privacy.

There is a large south facing garden with beautiful views to the Pyrenees to the front of the house which includes a mature mixed orchard, lawn and flowerbeds.

Wood Store
There is a tile roofed wood store close to the house.

Water Tank
There is a 10 m3 water tank behind the wood store.

Ash Plantation
There is a plantation of Ash trees, established in 2010, for use as fuel for the wood burning stoves.

There is a paddock next to the house which could be used for pasturing animals or as a vegetable plot/herb garden.

There are two flat, fertile 5 acre fields, one to either side of the property. For the last 10 years they have been cut for hay without the use of pesticides and no chemical fertilizers have been used on the fields for at least 8 years. Adjoining fields have been cropped for wheat, maize and oilseed rape or used for pasturing cattle.
