Pretty stone property
with garden and pool
Where is this house located?
This pretty Gascon stone house is situated at the entrance of a village with amenities, within easy driving distance of the thriving town of Eauze and its popular Thursday market.
The property is completely enclosed and private, with parking for up to four vehicles inside the grounds. The house is typically Gascon in style and has been lovingly tended by its current owner, first as a holiday home, and more recently as a main residence.
Let’s look at the property in more detail:
Turning into the driveway we park in front of the house, in the shade of centuries old trees, perfect in the heat of the summer.
On first glance it is clear that the façade has been recently rendered. There is a long stone barn, and in the distance, a glimpse of the pool and its charming wooden cabin at the end of the garden.
In traditional Gascon style there is a central hallway from where the stairwell is visible through the stained-glass doors.
The Reception Room
To the left of the hallway there is a snug living room with a wood-burner for cosy winter evenings.
Across the hallway is the dining-room which is a light and airy space for guests with a fireplace and direct access to:
The kitchen design reflects the owner’s genuine love of cooking and entertaining and has been well designed. The original cupboards provide useful storage space and compliment the newer style kitchen units.
There is a direct access from the kitchen to the barn and boiler room but for now let’s continue our visit internally.
Shower & Utility room
The ground floor is completed by a newly renovated shower and utility room with a WC.
The First Floor
The original wooden staircase opens onto a landing which spans the breadth of the house, mirroring the entrance hall on the ground floor.
Set across the upstairs hallway, are three generous sized bedrooms and a smart family bathroom with a shower and WC.
Attached to the house, with access from the kitchen and from outside, there are two enclosed barns as well as two open hangars. The first barn houses the oil-fired boiler and tank, the second is mainly storage and workshop. The hangars are perfect for wood, or perhaps some chickens?
The Garden & Pool
The pool is situated at the far end of the private-feeling garden, where there is a wooden cabin housing both the pool equipment and a bar table and chairs.
« This was a lovely private spot from which to work during lockdown » the current owner observes.
Our thoughts here at Bliss
This property is suitable both as a family home for year-long residence or as a second-home. This is also an ideal property for summer lettings which would generate a potential additional revenue.
The property is private and yet within easy reach of the shops and restaurants which does mean that there is slight road noise when in the garden.
For home-seekers anxious to avoid building works, this property is in good condition and has been well cared for by its current owners, providing a ready-to-move-into home.
The characterful original features have been preserved where possible, whilst incorporating modern-day comforts.
