Country housewith pool and views
4 hectares of park & woodland
This 310m² country property sits in an enviable position, in parkland of over four hectares with stunning views of the Pyrenees. This property is a guarantee of peace and quiet in a secluded spot far from the road or any neighbouring properties.
Three of the four hectares of land are ancient woodland, creating what is truly the ideal haven for a rural property in Gascony.
The property is just five minutes from a lively village, where there is a supermarket and chemist, a butcher’s and a baker’s as well as a doctor, in an area of Gascony which is incredibly popular.
The property is a generous size with over 300m² habitable space, six bedrooms and four bathrooms.
The accommodation comprises: a kitchen, a dining room with a wood burning stove, a laundry room, a study, and a superb reception room with a view over the surrounding countryside.
There are two bedrooms and a bathroom on the ground floor, with two bedrooms and a shower room on the first floor.
The property benefits from a separate guest appartment, which is linked directly to the main house. The guest annexe comprises a spacious reception room, two bedrooms and two shower rooms.
The property also has a garage.
Facing the view and the stunning snow peaked mountain range, there is a lovely swimming pool, with a pool house which is not completed, and will need work by the future owner.
To be noted
The property has undergone intensive renovations in the last couple of years, with work having been carried out to underpin the foundations of the property by a structural engineer. The result is a property that even with the hot summers to come, and a tendency for all stone houses in the area to crack in the heat, is fortified in a way which many future home owners will envy in this area. As a result of the work to the foundations of the property, the final rendering to the outer walls is not yet complete, but the owners have made provisions for this work to be carried out and budgeted for. The agency can provide full details as to all works that have been carried out and are still in process.
As such some of the photographs used in this advert were taken before renovations to the property and the floors on the pictures are not representative of the property today. Depending on the time of purchase the new owner may still be able to choose some of the new materials used, with no guarantees from the agency at the time of writing, as works to this property are currently ongoing.
Our thoughts here at Bliss
Lovers of the countryside and home- seekers in search of that perfect tranquil haven, where one can commune with Nature will feel a calm and a serenity here which is hard to find in today’s busy world. The views from the pool are truly glorious. There is enough wood from the property’s private 3 hectare woodland to stoke the fires for many years to come, and much of the work has been carried out. Anyone worried about the solidity of a stone house that is over two hundred years old, will feel reassured to know that the owner’s insurance company have undertaken an extensive and extremely costly programme of works so that if this were the house in the proverbial tale of the three pigs: the wolf would have a hard task blowing it down! The property is ideal for a large family, or anyone seeking to provide guest accommodation with the separate 2 bedroom appartment, which is linked to the main property but separate from it. This property has many things to offer, not least if the owners’ photographs are anything to go by, delicious truffles in the private woodland. A delicacy for any palate. Contact Bliss for a guided tour of this property and for further information. The secret truffle location will be revealed to the happy owner of this delightful rural home!
