solar power: autonomous and grid
€ 980,000 *- ref n° 251
The region around Toulouse, France’s 4th city, is rich farmland, slow-moving rivers and dramatic escarpments punctuated by bijou villages made of that pink brick for which the region is famous. This property is a former farm – in rural surroundings – just minutes from one such village and handily placed for access to the city in one direction and to the Pyrenees in the other.
There’s a lot packed into the 650m² of living space: the owner’s four-bedroomed home to start with; then the 3 studios, the 3 guest rooms and finally the spacious 2-bedroomed gite. That’s not to mention the myriad of other rooms: gym, study, laundry room, pantry and 2-car garage.
Outside there’s the 12 metre heated pool, three or four free-standing gazebos or garden pavillions where guests can get away from the crowds or where groups can dine in comfort. A line of banana plants form an exotic backdrop to the pool … and remind us that this is the south of France. The gardens also have a fully operational vegetable patch, an orchard, a garden shed and, most importantly, a well.
A feature of the property is the extensive solar installation which provides power for instant use on site: pool, air-con etc, as well as a surplus which is sold to the grid.
This is a big property which has been totally renovated and refurbished. It offers both a delightful home for people seeking a radical lifestyle change as well as a commercial tool which can be adapted to a number of themes. The studios, gites and guest rooms provide 8 ensuite bedrooms which can be used as they are currently – a mix of tourists and aircraft instructors at the local aerodrome – or for something totally different: cycling groups, cooking classes, retreat… The solar installation providing electricity for both automomous use and re-sale to the grid (around €4500 pa – tax-free) is an enormous bonus. Finally, for buyers with school-age children the location is quasi-perfect: not just a choice of good state collèges and lycées but the full array of Toulouse’s top class universities on your doorstep … and they are all free.
