A lovingly restored & spacious detached family home in a picturesque rural location, ideal for exploring the beautiful National Park in which it is located. The house is set in the department of Aveyron, within the Midi-Pyrenees Region in the south of France.

La Bastinde is a stunning French country farm house in an elevated and commanding position, offering panoramic views over a lush green valley.

The house has been sympathetically restored to an impeccable standard and would serve as a wonderful family home or vacation rental with opportunity to easily configure a self-contained annexe.

The top floor comprises two very large double bedrooms, a third double bedroom, a separate wc room, a shower room and a sizeable hallway with skylights and original exposed beams and stonework.
The middle floor comprises an entrance porch, a large modern fitted kitchen (which includes underfloor heating) comprising a central island and dining area. The kitchen opens onto a large balcony through double French doors. The middle floor also has a large lounge with 10Kw multi-fuel fire, a separate wc room, a stylish bathroom with roll-top bath and a generous hallway.
The ground floor comprises three large rooms with potential for a fourth bedroom (with garden access through double French doors), a second dining room and a games room with full size table tennis table. In addition, there is a fully-plumbed utility room and a separate shower room with wc. This layout is flexible in its construction and could be used as a self-contained annex with its own entrance and access to the gardens.
