This family home has been part developed by a trade professional who did the work alongside running his own business. It shows in the quality of the work done. However, as time has passed, so the energy to complete the project has ebbed. This presents an opportunity to the new owner – to build on a solid foundation and transform the parts of the house that remain relatively untouched - a whole floor, comprising 3 bedrooms, large balcony / terrace, and open plan kitchen / dining room / lounge area and bathroom - while enjoying the benefits of a fully functional 2 bedroom family home on the floor below.
Fumel is a lively commercial centre – a working town that is likely to have a lower density of ex-pats than many of the surrounding smaller towns and villages. It is quintessentially French in its architectural style and layout, and this applies in no small way to the former railway station area in which the house is situated. On the banks of the river Lot, the former railway line has been relaid to form part of the cycle path that runs the length of this picturesque waterway. Either side of Fumel, traditional towns such as Villeneuve sur Lot, Puy L’Eveque and Prayssac are more oriented towards tourism and the vineyards of the Cahors region are also very close by.

The property sits on a large corner plot area with no interruptions from the front aspect to the nearby river. While outside space is limited (this being a former hotel), two large terraces offer stunning views of the river and the cycle path that runs alongside.
There are 2 front doors serving different floors of the house – an interesting proposition given the potential to divide it into separate apartments.

The door giving access to the main accommodation used by the current owners gives on to a hallway (6.5 m2). From here, there is access to the lounge / dining room (24.8 m2) through double glass doors. All windows in this room and throughout the house are double glazed and the house benefits from the warmth offered from both oil central heating and the use of reversible heating / air conditioning units in many of the main rooms.

Beyond the lounge is the kitchen (8.3 m2) with tiled flooring, gas hob, oven and ample cupboards and space for fridge / freezer. Leading from the kitchen is an inner lobby with a door to a bathroom / WC and this gives on to a walled courtyard area with a potting shed and steps leading to 2 cellars offering significant storage space.
The aforementioned hallway also gives access to the master bedroom (35.2 m2). This sunny space has large, triple aspect windows and access to one of the 2 terraces. The tiled floor extends into the en suite shower room which also has a vanity unit and WC. The second of the two bedrooms on this floor of the house (13 m2) is also accessed from the hallway. A further shower / utility room completes this floor offering plumbing for washing machine, shower cubicle, wash basin and WC.

The level described above might be seen as the middle of three floors. The second front door gives access to the level below where there are two garage workshop areas. The first (35.7 m2) has large gated doors to the front and extends with full head height for the full floor space of the building. The second (13.2 m2) again has double door access to the front and is so large it currently houses the owner’s caravan. There is significant workshop space in this garage making it suitable as a base for operations of a tradesperson or use by a DIY enthusiast.

The upper floor lends itself to being a self-contained apartment but remains only part developed and requires further work to bring it up to fully habitable standards. It is here that the fabric of a former hotel is perhaps most evident. It offers three bedroom spaces. The first (9.3 m2) has a window to the front overlooking the river. The second (9 m2) has a window to the rear and across the landing from here is a bathroom featuring a modern white bath suite, basin and WC. Stairs from this landing lead to a vast attic space. Currently insulated, this attic offers potential for even more development if so desired with stairs, electricity and windows already installed. There is also permission in place for further windows if needed as part of development of the attic space.

The landing area for has an original wood floor and doors leading to a large, private and south-facing terrace with views across to the river and the old railway station building. From here the space opens out into a kitchen / dining / lounge area (17.4 m2) with windows to a rear balcony and access to the third of the bedrooms on this floor (5 m2). This could easily be incorporated into the main living area if a third bedroom was deemed unnecessary and a grander living space was desired.
The location of this townhouse is very convenient for access to a huge range of commerce including a choice of supermarkets and all other types of shops and services needed for everyday living. Fumel and its immediate surrounds offers schools, medical services, gyms, cinemas, bowling and many other leisure facilities. It is central to the series of towns on the Lot river that feature on the picture postcards of the area and the world famous Cahors wine region is close by. Toulouse and Bergerac airports are approximately 1 hour away and the TGV station at Agen is approximately 35 minutes away. This connects to Paris in under 3 hours.
