This property offers all the convenience of Albi (10 minutes from the cathedral, the Toulouse-Lautrec gallery and the mediaeval centre) without the inconvenience of living in a museum with all the restrictions that apply. Here, we are in the countryside, not far from the river Tarn and Albi’s wonderful golf course, within minutes of the (free) motorway to Toulouse and Rodez. Guests come here to enjoy the silence, the space and the comfort after a long day sight-seeing.
The business is currently run in two different ways:
The house has over 400m² of living space spread over the two floors: bright and spacious modern kitchen, dinin-room with open fire place, two lounges, a study and a downstairs ensuite bedroom. Upstairs, there are 5 more bedrooms including a bijou of a room in the old pigeon loft. This is an 18th century farm that has been cleverly refurbished leaving a number of original features intact.
But it is the rest of the farm buildings that will interest buyers: another 400m² of solid barns and byres that are crying out for development into more accommodation or ‘events space’ or both. These buildings are all equipped with electricity, water and connections to the mains drainage/sewage.
The mature garden of roughly 5000m² includes a flat piece of lawn, two enormous cedars, a selection of fruit trees and olive trees and other easily-maintained shrubs. And then there’s the pool, of course.
We could go on for hours about this beautiful property but nothing compares with a viewing. The proximity of Albi (and that golf course), the peaceful country atmosphere (the fields around the property cannot be built on and are used for hay) and the vast out-buildings all point towards the development of a million euro business very rapidly.
