'Le Château' - Large 18th century property with attached home on a hill with beautiful views
Price: € 205 000 | Ref.: 3813 | Views: 3 241
In a hamlet in the commune of Rullac-Saint-Cirq, in the Aveyron, this fantastic residential house is built attached to a former castle at an altitude of 600m with breathtaking views. The property consists of two parts: a habitable house and the former castle, built on the ruins of a medieval fortified castle from the time of the Crusaders. This castle, with its super-thick walls and centuries of history, deserves to be restored to its former glory. The village itself has only a few dozen inhabitants, all of whom are proud of "their" castle. Stores, restaurants and schools at 15 to 30 minutes in Cassagnes-Begonhès, Réquista, Lédergues, Saint-Cirq, Salmiech and La Selve.
The main house (ca. 1900):
On the first floor is a lounge of 22 m2, which gives access to the garden. Furthermore, a kitchen, a bathroom with shower and sink and a separate toilet. In the salon, in the floor we still find the old well, which originally stood in the entrance to the castle. On the second floor 3 rooms of 8, 12 and 15 m2 and a landing of 16 m2 opening onto the second floor of the château.
The castle (1774):
The kitchen on the first floor of the main house gives access to a fantastic room in the castle of approximately 43 m2 with an original large fireplace containing a wood stove. On the 1st floor is a beautiful room of 30 m2 with fireplace (with an opening to the barn) and on the other side a storage room of 20 m2. This storage room communicates with the part located on the first floor on the south side, with a surface of 34 m2. The attics of more than 60 m2 can be made habitable.
The land measures 905 m2, divided into 3 gardens. There is a barn built to the house with an area of 210 m2, divided into two floors.
Surface building: 242m2, barn: 210 m2, castle south: 34 m2. The windows of the main house as well as two front doors have been replaced. Heating by a wood stove, a pellet stove in the lounge and an electric stove in the bathroom. All roofs are in good condition except the barn roof. City and well water, electricity and internet.
This house with its old castle has a "charme fou" and enormous potential, but it still needs significant renovation work. These are estimated to require around €90,000, although an accurate cost estimate is highly dependent on the level of execution and what the buyer may be willing and able to do themselves.
