A beautiful property, advertised for the first time in 27 years within walking distance of a characterful village with restaurant between the towns of Mirande and Auch. Beautifully and meticulously renovated by the current owners over the last 3 decades it offers a haven of peace and tranquility in the beautiful Gers department of South West France.
Entered via a cypress lined paved avenue from the entrance gates, the driveway sweeps down to a paved area between the house and the other buildings. Blending perfectly with its surroundings and offering a touch of restrained luxury the property wants for nothing but offers plenty of scope should new owners wish to rearrange things. The detached cottage is well equipped and there is potential to double or even triple the accommodation by converting more of the attached barn should this be required.
The Main House (with gas and wood fired heating and fully double glazed)
Entering the ground floor from a small south east facing terrace into a spacious hallway, the fully fitted kitchen has been built in the renovated annex of the original building. It offers a 'Tulikivi' wood stove with pizza/bread oven, a electric/gas combination cooker and all of the usual appliances in a light and airy space with dining area. House wc and bathroom, large living room with central stone wheel from the original mill, stone 'Tulikivi' wood burner and direct access to the south facing covered terrace.
On the first floor - sitting room/reading room with wood burner, office area and bookshelves, two double bedrooms.
The entire building is full of charm and character with original stone walls renovated with lime render showing the stone door and window reveals, beamed ceilings, wooden floorboards, custom made doors and windows in hardwood.
The Guest cottage
Converted from one third of the steel frame barn this offers comfortable accommodation over two floors with private terrace and direct access to the garage/barn. The ground floor is entered via the south west facing terrace into a spacious open plan living room with kitchen diner. A central wood stove with brick chimney heats the cottage admirably. The kitchen has been custom made in solid wood with ample storage. A bathroom and wc. completes the ground floor. On the first floor, two double bedrooms and a wc.
An exceptional and beautiful property.
