House Tarn et Garonne for sale:
Description of the accommodation in Midi Pyrenees
Le Pic Vert is a 4-bedroom house in the centre of a small village in Tarn et Garonne in South West France that has been fully renovated by its English architect owner.
The house, which was built in 1860, is next to the village church and faces at the front on to the main street of the village and at the rear onto a garden and a small wooded area (that also belongs to the house) beyond. The house is constructed of fired and un-fired bricks with 40/50 centimetre thick rendered external walls. The roof construction is of Roman tiles supported on massive timber trusses.
The house originally had an 'epicerie' (a grocer's shop) on the ground floor (in what is now the kitchen/dining room) and barns for drying garlic and storing other agricultural produce at the rear and side of the house.
The house has been completely renovated with a new insulated and tiled, concrete ground floor, new electrical and plumbing installations and a new gas central heating system with underfloor heating on the ground floor and radiators on the first and second floors.
The external walls of the house have been re-rendered externally and insulated internally on the ground floor (and in the first floor sitting room) and lined with plaster-board. All of the windows have been replaced with new, double-glazed hardwood windows and the external doors are also new. The original internal doors and door linings have been retained.
The existing timber roof structure of trusses, purlins and rafters has been retained and cleaned (and is exposed over the first floor sitting room and the second floor bedroom) but the roof boarding has been replaced, multi-leaf insulation installed and the roofing tiles re-laid.
The barns at the rear of the house has been turned into a large covered terrace on the ground floor with a store at one end which contains the central heating boiler and storage space and into a sitting room on the first floor. The barn at the side of the house has been removed and the space is now a small garden.
The house is connected to the main drainage system in the village and there is no need therefore for a septic tank. All of the soil and waste pipes within the house were newly installed when the house was renovated.
The house is connected to the village main water supply (which is metered) and has new hot and cold water supply pipes internally.
The house is also connected to the village main electricity supply with new electrical wiring (all in conduits) internally.
The house has a telephone connection and a fast internet connection via the telephone line to the post office which now has a fibre-optic cable connection.
Propane gas for the new central heating installation and for cooking is supplied from a 1,400 kg underground gas tank in the rear garden.
Terrace and Gardens
The covered terrace (27 m2) at the rear of the house faces on to the rear garden (62 m2) which is partly paved and planted with shrubs and a nectarine tree. There is also a very old palm tree in the garden and privacy is afforded by a thick hedge of flowering shrubs along the road that runs behind the house. The terrace and garden get the sun in the early morning and in the summer the garden has the sun until the early afternoon.
There is also a small garden (25 m2) at the side of the house which again is partly paved and has a covered space for wood storage, some shrubs and a fig tree. This garden is accessed from the ground floor living room and there is also a gate at the front from the main village street. The garden gets the sun in the late afternoon.

Tarn et Garonne
The house is situated in Serignac, a small, once fortified village on top of a hill overlooking the valley of the Gimone river, a tributary of the Garonne. The village, which is about seven kilometres from the market town of Beaumont de Lomagne, is set in pretty rolling countryside that is extensively farmed and that also has large areas of woodland. Serignac is about an hour by road north-west of Toulouse and about half an hour west of Montauban, the administrative centre of the Tarn et Garonne Departement.
The village has a community-run cafe/bar which is open 7 days a week in the summer and at weekends in spring and autumn but which is closed in winter. There is also a salle de fete and the committees that run the cafe and the salle de fete are both very active and numerous community activities take place during the year. Bread is delivered to the village by a van 6 days a week.
There is a horse-riding centre in the village and a very active walking group. There is also a post office and a primary school. There are vineyards around the village and the grapes are sent to a coop in St Sardos were they are turned into a very acceptable wine.
The nearest town, Beaumont de Lomagne has doctors' surgeries (some of whom speak English), pharmacies, shops, boulangeries, two supermarkets, hairdressers, restaurants, cafes, a cinema, car dealers, etc and a fine 14th century market hall.
There is a 'base de loisirs' with a lake and an outdoor swimming pool in Beaumont and another, also with an outdoor swimming pool in the village of St Sardos. There is an indoor swimming pool in Lavit de Lomagne.
The nearest market is in Beaumont on Saturday morning from 7am to 12 midday (same for all markets). There are also markets on Saturday in Montauban and in Grenade; in Verdun on Friday; in Lectoure and Fleurance on Tuesday; in Moissac on Sunday; in Mauvezin on Monday; and in Castelsarassin on Thursday.
The nearest airport is at Blagnac on the outskirts of Toulouse about 50 minutes' drive away and there are railway stations in Montauban and Toulouse with connections to Paris and the south. The A20 from the north of France runs through Montauban and the A62 to Bordeaux can be accessed at Montauban or Castelsarrasin.
Serignac is well placed for visiting many interesting towns and villages in the Midi-Pyrenees. Toulouse is an hour's drive away and is worth visiting for its museums, galleries and shopping. South of Toulouse are the Pyrenees and Carcassone (2,5 hour's drive) and to the east are the 'Pays de Cockaigne' and the city of Albi (2,5 hour's drive) with its Toulouse-Lautrec Museum. Bordeaux and the Atlantic coast are about 2,5/3 hour's drive away to the west.
To the west of Beaumont you enter the Gers with its rolling countryside and pretty, mainly stone-built villages and towns. Of these Lecture, Fleurance and Auch, birthplace of D'Artagnan are worth visiting.
Montauban with its Ingres Museum and its beautiful arcaded square is about 45 minute drive away and on the way at Montech the road crosses the Canal de Deux Mers which offers boating, pleasant walks and cycle rides. Moissac is a similar distance away and is worth a visit for the medieval cloisters in the cathedral, the canal and the nearby viewing point over the junction of the Tarn and Garonne rivers.
