I think it's okay to post this information, since it's available to anyone who can find it on the internet. C told me that the house is already under contract, and there is only one small issue to resolve before the signatures (closing) can be scheduled. She seemed optimistic that the sale will go through and she'll be able to move to Bordeaux in March.
Here's the description I found on the real estate agency's web site (my translation):
Located in a quiet hamlet in the Saint-Aignan area. Magnificent and charming 2,150 sq. ft., 18th century stone farmhouse (longère or "longhouse") with 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Roof in small tiles of the region.
You will love the exposed beams and the hexagonal terra cotta floor tiles (tomettes). On the ground floor, an entry hall leading into a rotunda-shaped office space with a view onto the yard, a bedroom/workshop with a shower room, and a spacious living room with a fireplace and a cathedral ceiling. A beautiful 280 sq. ft. kitchen, also with a fireplace. A second bedroom/bathroom suite on the ground floor off the kitchen.
Upstairs, a mezzanine leading to two bedrooms as well as a large master suite. In the yard, a small outbuilding (430 sq. ft.). Garage with workshop, laundry room, and loft space. Wine cellar. All on a fenced in, fully landscaped half-acre lot.
The asking price is 205 thousand euros. That's about $230,000 U.S. and is surprisingly low in my opinion. There's a slideshow of photos showing many of the rooms here, if you can get to it, and also the description in French. It's always interesting to see what these old French houses look like inside.
In case you can't get the website, here's a photo of the living room (above), and one of the kitchen (below).
And, finally, here's one of the bathrooms.
Yesterday I posted a photo of mine showing the front of the house, facing the yard.
