The owners of this property have thoughtfully compiled an album of photos depicting its 2 year restoration. It is, perhaps, only when one flicks through this that one can appreciate the scale of the development programme and the care given to creating a property that requires viewing to fully take-in the quality and range of spaces and facilities. To label it simply as a 4 or 5 bedroom dwelling does not sensibly describe the nature of the accommodation. The reason is that it offers significant flexibility to configure as desired. The fundamentals – beautiful living areas, bespoke kitchens and bathrooms and a pool and terrace with panoramic views – are all there. However, there remains scope to use the ground floor as a business space while reserving the first floor for residential use and offering the second floor as chambre d’hotes or apartment rentals.
Roquecor is a thriving village with a vibrant local community where integration between long-standing French residents and expatriates from Britain, Holland, Belgium etc is remarkably strong. With a superb bar / restaurant, fully stocked epicerie and weekly market, the village is a bustling hive of activity in the summer and is by no means “closed for business” during the winter months. It is in close proximity to larger towns of Villeneuve sur Lot, Agen and Cahors – each offering a full range of shops and commerce. Read more ...

The ground floor of this property is currently used as a coffee shop / art gallery / office facility. Quite simply, it is a fantastic space. Light floods in through picture glass windows to illuminate two areas. The first (57.6 m2) is equipped with a kitchen (4.6 m2) and disabled access toilet, enabling the owner to take advantage of the pretty front terrace to offer restaurant / coffee shop services if desired. The second space (98.7 m2) has its own disabled access toilet and was configured as an art gallery space by the current owners. This whole ground floor area has stone floors and is heated by under-floor heating.
2 sets of stairs lead down to separate ‘cave’ areas, one being equipped as a stylish wine cellar. Doors to the rear of this area give on to a covered archway (built by the current owners as part of the restoration) leading to a double garage and services area housing the pool pump, heating and hot water storage etc.
A flight of stone stairs leads to the penthouse style living area of the first floor. With a large wood burning stove as the centrepiece, lounge, dining and kitchen areas are provided with a superb flow; making it so easy to imagine their use for entertaining or use as a family space. The total area of this space is 133.8 m2. Benefiting from high end finishes in all aspects, particular attention should be paid to the solid wood flooring, picture window offering breath taking views across the valley, not to mention a top-end kitchen complete with island and all appliances for modern living.
From here, a vestibule gives on to a WC and two further rooms (8.5m2 and 6.1m2) that might be used as either smaller bedrooms or study space. Beyond this is the master suite. Accessed through a dedicated dressing room fitted with extensive wardrobes and drawers (11 m2), the bedroom (12.9 m2) is presented as an uncluttered space and enjoys access to its own shower and bathroom (10.2 m2) featuring high end provision of double sink unit, walk-in shower and luxury bath.
The owners gave great care to providing living space for visiting family members that went way beyond the offer of a spare room. As such, the top floor of the property was configured to give visitors access to a vast living space (103.7m2) which includes its own feature wood burner, reversible heating system – heating and air conditioning etc – and gives on to doors to 2 separate apartments.
The first apartment has its own kitchen (16.5 m2) giving on to a living room (19.5 m2) and a WC. Up a further flight of stairs is a bedroom (12.7 m2) which enjoys its own en suite bathroom. The second apartment has its own style but is close to being a mirror image of the first in terms of layout. With its own kitchen / living area (12.7 m2), and WC it too has its own stairs leading a bedroom (13.3 m2) and bathroom. All areas benefit from the same heating / air-conditioning and the highest possible standard of finish to aspects such as flooring, electrical installation and choice of kitchen and bathroom fittings.
A house of this size at the heart of a historic village might normally be pressed for outside space. However, in this case, the owners have created a pool and covered terrace area entirely suitable for a large numbers of guests. The pool is presented infinity style with superb views over the valley. Both the pool and terrace enjoy complete privacy from other houses in the village reflecting the careful planning and thought that went into the conception and execution of the restoration programme.
As a final feature, it is possible to see from the terrace the installation of solar panels. The current owners, by their own admission, have not exploited this system to its fullest extent. However, they do have the capacity to supply much of the electricity needed by the house in the spring, summer and autumn months. The exact capacity and capability will be fully verified as part of the buying process.
Access to the village of Roquecor is straightforward as it well connected to major towns such as Villeneuve sur Lot, Agen and Cahors. From Cahors, Paris is directly accessible by the A10. Toulouse and its major airport is just over an hour away by road. The smaller airport at Bergerac is also just over an hour away. Agen offers TGV access to Paris in under 3 hours.
