Property for sale

After 18 years, I have decided to sell Bordeneuve. I’ve loved my time here and now it is time to pass it to new hands who will love and care for this beautiful spot as much as I have. If you would like further information or have questions, please do email me at noelle@bordeneuveretreat.com.

A bit about the property:

This haven for nature lovers offers a charming stone cottage and a beautifully renovated barn. The property once served as the main dependence for the castle on the hill next door. Restored with traditional and ecological building materials, this would be a wonderful primary or secondary home – the potential is enormous.  The gardens (nearly 1 acre) offer mature plantings, an organic vegetable garden, orchard, a pond and wildflower meadows. The property has a private access track of 600m and is sheltered by woodlands and luxuriant meadows. No neighbors, no noise permeates this property – just birdsong and the rush of a nearby river.

The barn

The beautifully renovated barn (2 floors, 146m²) has two covered terraces, a large open kitchen/salon area (45m²), an atelier, a WC/bathroom downstairs. Upstairs you have a huge, airy, luminous loft-style room (100m²) with a stunning open beam ceiling. The barn has bespoke woodwork, and a mix of travertine and hardwood flooring. All renovations have been done in the last 15 years. Wood-stove heating.

The house

The house (3 floors, 166m²) is comprised of an entry hall (12m²), an open kitchen/salon area (36m²), a cellar, two bedrooms (17m² and 19m²), a WC with shower and a beautiful attic with exposed beams that could be converted into extra rooms. Parquet floors, mix of single and double glazing, solar panels for hot water (300L boiler), cellar, garden pergola attached to west side of house. The house needs light refreshing and there is ample room to make your mark on this lovely cottage. Wood-fired central heating plus an ESSE cook stove.

The property is situated in the Couserans, in between Salies du Salat and St. Girons – two busy market-towns with shops, banks, golf, fishing and spas. The local village has a school, post office and a well-known restaurant. Toulouse is 50 minutes by car, the train station and motorway 15 minutes; ski stations 45 minutes.

Price: 380,000€ (direct sale, no agency fees)
