The house has been extensively and sympathetically restored inside retaining original features such as exposed wooden beams and original stone ‘evier’ in the main living area. Original exposed stone walls are present in certain areas of the house, such as the dining room, downstairs hallway, bedroom 3 / office and bedroom 4.
Being an old stone farmhouse, the very thick stone walls enable the house to retain the heat very well in the winter and keep it cool during the long summer months. The high quality ‘Jøtul’ wood burner installed in the main lounge area is linked to a warm air heating system located in the attic which allows you to adjust the room temperature to your own requirements/choice.
The large dining room gives you excellent panoramic views of the surrounding countryside whilst dining. Ditto for the Prep Kitchen with kitchen sink overlooking the surrounding countryside.
The large size fully fitted American-style kitchen provides you with all the amenities you could possibly need with plenty of working space and cupboard storage space. The additional Prep kitchen gives valuable extra space with fitted units and illuminated glass-front wall cupboards. There is also space for a washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher and additional fridge/freezer.
The 3 bathrooms have recently undergone an upgrade with the 2 en-suite bathrooms both containing modern walk-in, fully tiled shower areas.
The land is mainly laid to lawn with a hibiscus border all the way round. There is a mature orchard with cherry, plum, greengage, apple & pear trees as well as walnut & chestnut trees. The property is entered via dual wooden gates which lead to a large driveway where the double garage is located. There is a front garden area containing various colourful plants and shrubs with a border of mixed trees providing privacy for the front of the property.
The outside areas to the rear of the property have a southern facing aspect, there is a large covered terrace area leading directly onto the pool area which is big enough to contain a table that can comfortably seat 10 people with plenty of room to spare. Next to this covered area is the fully enclosed bar with large windows all round giving an excellent view of the swimming pool, decking area and enclosed garden.
Miguel is close to two historic villages in very close proximity (approx. 5 minute drive to the nearest), one being Caylus and the other St. Antonin-Noble-Val.

Cordes-sur-Ciel – a fortified hilltop town with incredible panoramic views at the top of the town and a good selection of artisan shops, bars and restaurants.

Caussade – a large town with all amenities and a Monday market with traditional local stalls.
