Spotted this a while back, then somehow lost track of it. Thankfully it doesn’t matter, as this 1960s Edgar Broutet-designed midcentury property in Bergerac, southwestern France is still up for sale.

It’s an interesting house, one built for a doctor back in 1963 and originally designed with a medical office within the property. Presumably the house has been renovated since, so don’t worry if you aren’t part of the medical profession.

But the renovation doesn’t seem to have affected the look and feel of this place, which is said to have been inspired by architecture from the rest coast of the US. The concrete, beams, stone walls, slate stairs and solid wood door frames (and presumably windows)  are all original features, with the design also looking generally faithful to the architect’s vision.

The house sits on 1,700 sq. metres of landscaped garden and is sheltered from the nearby road for privacy. Go beyond the land and into the house and you’ll find that converted office, which is now a living room, library and ’studio’ with bathroom (we are guessing that means bedroom). Also on this floor is a further bedroom with bathroom, a ‘large room’ around the patio and access to two cellars and a garage.

A further floor hosts three bedrooms and three bathrooms, a kitchen and another large space that combines the living and dining room. There is also access to a terrace.

۹ More Pieces of Bad News for the MBTA

Last week, the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority received a scathing report from a panel appointed by Governor Charlie Baker.

Baker assembled the panel in February, following numerous problems with the MBTA during the region’s record-breaking winter.

“The catastrophic winter breakdowns were symptomatic of structural problems that require fundamental change in virtually all aspects of the MBTA,” the report notes, and also points to a lack of accountability and an unsustainable operating budget. A crowdfunding campaign meant to draw attention to the MBTA’s challenges — decades of deferred maintenance and $9 billion in debt — was launched over the winter.

At a press conference about the report, Katie Lapp, co-chair of the panel and former CEO for the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority said, “There is a pervasive organizational failure at the MBTA. I want to be clear that the panel rejects the ‘reform versus revenue’ debate because we feel strongly the MBTA needs both.”


Boston public radio station WBUR reported on four big questions that the panel’s report has left unanswered. As for a source of sustainable funding, WBUR noted:

The report does suggests several ideas for bringing in new revenue, including selling or leasing MBTA surplus land, having new developments near stations pay to support service and using a portion of property tax to cover capital project costs.

But a major piece of what the report had to say about revenue was its recommendation to allow for fare increases … .
