Set in 28 hectares of woodland and 2 hectares of parkland, this Sublime Gascogne has been renovated to a very high standard by a number of renowned local craftsmen. The imposing wrought-iron gate opens onto a magnificent tree-lined driveway that leads up to the property and reveals a splendid park adorned with numerous species of trees.
The white stone facades reflect the sun, the swimming pool beckons temptation, and the surrounding forest offers coolness and protection. It was planted with cedars, oaks and pines several decades ago and invites you to take long walks along the winding paths.
The house opens onto a beautiful wood-panelled entrance hall, which leads to the living room on the left and the dining room on the right. Both have stone fireplaces, travertine floors and discreet ceiling mouldings. The hallway ends in the huge cathedral-ceiling kitchen, which has a seating area and a large French window opening onto the sun terrace. There is also a winter lounge, a fully-equipped utility room, a guest toilet, a boiler room and 2 heated workshops on the ground floor.
The first floor has oak floors, 2 sumptuous bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and fireplaces replicating those on the ground floor, a large mezzanine above the kitchen used as a study and sewing room, a 3rd bedroom with en-suite shower room, and finally a suite, also with outside access, housing a lounge, bedroom and shower room. The beautiful staircase continues to the top floor, where a study has been created and part of the attic is used for storage.
All the materials used in the renovation are noble and top-of-the-range: brass for the hinges, handles and locks, oak for the woodwork, granite, wrought iron for the banisters and railings, and stone.
The two large barns adjoining the house, which have been re-roofed and re-framed, have thick reinforced concrete floors for parking large machines, and the workshops have resin floors. A third outbuilding has retained its beautiful roof structure and old grape presses.
Two dovecotes bordering the vegetable garden have been rebuilt and are used to store gardening tools.
There is also an outbuilding for storing firewood, a pleasant pool house, a tractor barn with a workshop (which can be converted into a completely independent dwelling), a car wash, 2 wells and a pond, and a walnut tree plantation.
The central heating is oil-fired with beautiful cast-iron radiators and a new Viessmann boiler, and the house has 4 wood-burning stoves with free fuel! The insulation, double-glazed windows and oak shutters were redone 7 years ago, as were the plumbing, electrics and sanitary fittings. Only the stone walls, roof and magnificent stone floor in the entrance hall have been preserved.
This gem of a property sits in a stunning countryside setting.
