Charming 18th century propertyin a village
with garden and views of the countryside
This beautifully restored two-bedroom property is a perfect gem. Completely renovated in the last year, the property forms part of what was much a much larger presbytery, having retained its stylish exterior and with a neat picture-perfect garden to the front of the property.
The house is situated in a small impasse in a typical Gascon village which is conveniently located half an hour from the TGV train station in Agen, and just half an hour to Lectoure, one of the most sought-after towns in Gascony. The closest village provides a supermarket, chemist, grocery store, pizzeria, restaurant and flower shop) in the nearby town of Astaffort.
The property is discreetly located behind a stone wall with a pillard entrance. .The gate opens onto a neat garden that is perfect for outdoor dining; on an extremely easy-to-maintain plot. The immaculate garden might well have been trimmed with nail scissors it is so neat and tidy! The perfectly chosen shrubs, flowers and bushes screen both the village and the neighbouring property creating an intimate and leafy bower.
A contemporary black and glass metal door opens onto the downstairs reception room. This double sized room overlooks the front and side garden. A large rectangular opening in the wall allows light in the kitchen behind and a flow of energy and communication between the two rooms
The kitchen is a light and sunny room in which to prepare a meal. Tucked away behind a discreet door there is a walk-in pantry area, equipped with a washing machine.
The original staircase leads to the first-floor landing, which separates the two upstairs bedrooms, which area separated by a shared family bathroom.
The bathroom has been recently and tastefully refurbished. The bedrooms are light and sunny, with views from the first to the countryside and the Pyrenees on certain days.

Cute, cosy, light & authentic with a twist of contemporary.
Contemporary meets traditional; of particular example: the black metal window frames set into the beautiful stone façade.
