BEAUTIFUL FAMILY HOME IN LANDSCAPED GARDENS
PROPERTY REF: BLISS-108
Agency Fees included (4.5%) FEES PAYABLE BY VENDOR.
Located just a few minutes’ drive by car from the heart of Lectoure, with its many shops, tea-rooms, restaurants, schools and other amenities, this lovely old manor house (or “maison de maitre”) is built in the typical Gascon style, and sits proudly facing the town of Lectoure, which can be seen dominating the landscape on the far horizon.
The property sits in landscaped gardens to the front, and benefits from the addition of a large field to the side, which flanks the house from behind. To the front and side of the property there is a pleasant view of the surrounding garden and countryside, and the many trees around the property.
The gardens are staggered, as in the style so often found in Provence, and the highest level offers a great space for entertaining, with a terrace and covered swimming pool.
Although located close to Lectoure, the property is private, with no near neighbours and utterly tranquil.
This is a secluded backwater, but ideal for a family with children seeking to live close to Lectoure, or for anyone wishing to become a member of the town’s vibrant community.
There is a double sitting-room with a wood-burning stove to one side, with French windows over the gardens on both sides, and a dining room, also with a wood-burning stove, which leads to the recently fitted and refurbished kitchen.
The addition of the current kitchen to the property by the current owners has transformed the house. The kitchen runs the full length of the property with windows to the field on the pool side and is designed in a clever L shape to incorporate an adjacent laundry room. The kitchen and the laundry room are both open-plan, with a plethora of cupboards and storage space, which makes this a great family space. There is also space for a large pine table in the breakfast area.
At the end of the hallway there is a separate cloakroom/wc with wash basin for guests.
On the ground floor level, a new shower room has been recently fitted, while above it, there is a mezzanine area with a bedroom which overlooks the impressive sized reception room below. The gardens can be found on many different levels in this property, and the upstairs mezzanine room opens onto the rear gardens.
Returning to the main body of the original house, a wooden staircase leads to a neat landing, where there is a music room (bedroom), a newly fitted bathroom, a large double bedroom, a third bedroom currently painted in soft pink for a young princess, and the master bedroom, with its newly fitted ensuite bathroom.
In conclusion, property offers five bedrooms (four on one side and the bedroom over the barn conversion on the mezzanine), two reception rooms and a separate dining room. On the ground floor level there is a shower room, and a separate WC, upstairs there are two bath/shower rooms.
There is a second barn, adjacent to the house, perfect for storage or for a possible conversion (relevant permission pertaining).
WHAT WE THINK
The space this property offers so close to the town of Lectoure; the secluded woodland environment, just a few minutes’ drive from the heart of town, and the indoor space which the new barn conversion provides.
We love the kitchen – here at Bliss we both want a kitchen just like this one !
This property offers a pleasant mix of the traditional “maison de maitre” and the more contemporary style of house with all modern comforts.
Of note : the large covered swimming pool (great for not having to fish autumn leaves from the waters!).
A perfect family home, for lovers of old stone properties, with all the comforts of modern-day life!

NB: Our working relationships are built on mutual trust with our vendors. By so doing we are able to show photographs which clearly indicate the location of a property. This is not current practice in France. However, it should be noted in such cases that the current owner has chosen to advertise exclusively with our agency as he/she does not wish to enter into negotiations privately with potential buyers or to be contacted directly, choosing to remunerate an agency instead of handling the sale privately. All agency fees are payable by the VENDOR. We cordially invite all buyers interested in viewing a property to contact our agency. We are happy to advise and help throughout the process.
