The lieu-dit ‘Carbougnères’ consists of a small farmhouse and a barn, built in natural stone and dating from around 1850. It is situated between the bastides Villeréal and Monflanquin and commands a magnificent view over orchards and fields. It has been fully renovated and an extension has been added at the rear. It is suitable for permanent residence, for instance by a couple expecting regular visitors. The guest house in the barn could be let as a gîte.
The original living quarters of the farm house now comprise a fully equipped open kitchen with pantry and a large living room with a separate corner in use as study; there is also a large cellar. There is a south-west facing veranda at the front which gives onto a newly-built natural stone terrace surrounded by flower beds. An extension at the back provides three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a visitor’s toilet.
Part of the barn has been converted into a guest house with four bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom and WC. It also has a covered terrace. The barn also includes a car port for two cars and storage space for a lawnmower, garden equipment, bicycles, table tennis table, …
The plot is 5 000 m2 (1¼ acre) and is part orchard with cherry trees, apples, pears, apricots, walnuts, and hazelnuts. The drive has a border with flowers, shrubs and bulbs. There is a well in the garden and another in the cellar with a pump serving a tap in the garden. The swimming pool measures 5 by 10 m and it has a shower with solar heating and a gazebo built in the style of the region as protection against the sun
The farmhouse has oil-fired central heating. There is a stone fireplace with wood burner in the living room. The floor between the living room and the cellar has been well-insulated. Sanitary warm water is provided by two solar panels on the roof. There is a septic tank for the main house and a separate one for the guest house. Each room in the guest house has its own electric radiator and the electric hot water boiler is in the barn.
