Impressive stone propertypartially restored
on edge of a village
Situated in the Lectoure/ Condom area, on the outskirts of a popular village location, this impressive building and its adjacent land was once home to a shepherd and his flock of sheep.
If “shepherd’s huts” conjure images of small and cosy dwellings, think again. This property has large and spacious rooms, high ceilings and the proportions one might more easily associate with an impressive manor house.
The property has been partially restored, over a number of years, so that today we are presented with the bare and solid framework of a sizeable home with an excellent structure. With a new roof, concrete floors, exposed stone walls and new windows in most of the openings.
A fabulous stone staircase links the first and second floor and there is a vast barn adjacent to the property which could also be developed (subject to any necessary planning permissions).
We particularly like the way the property forms a large “L” shape around an internal sheltered garden area.
This is a property which will warrant a visit and is more easily described with our photographs and floor plans – with further information on request.
This is an opportunity to create a home almost from scratch, but with a solid structure and with evidence of electrical cables and drainage in place – and plans in place for what the current owners intended to do, there is ample opportunity for new owners to design the property around their own needs.
With wooded parkland, stone garden walls and many trees and bushes, the grounds provide plenty of outdoor space.
The nearby towns of Lectoure and Condom, with their weekly markets, schools and many shops and restaurants, are a popular destination for holiday makers and home seekers.
Agen with its TGV station is just under an hour’s drive, and Toulouse international airport just over an hour.
Our thoughts here at Bliss
It is increasingly unusual in 2024 to find a property that has yet to be furnished. And yet – although not habitable in its current state – this is not a ruin either. Much work has been carried out, and much expense already made.
This property is ideal for anyone fearful of having to “undo” the decoration of someone else. The choice of flooring, bathrooms, kitchen etc, can be made afresh.
Judging from the size and flow of the rooms, and the magnificent staircase, the finished home will have a contemporary feel: a vast entrance, a magnificent kitchen with fireplace, a large reception area, with a stone staircase and galley to the upstairs bedrooms.
