in heart of historical Lectoure
The property is located in the heart of historical Lectoure with direct access to its many shops, restaurants, tea-rooms, schools and thermal centre. There is also a cinema and a theatre a few minutes away on foot.
Highly sought-after by visitors to Gascony or to so many people who choose to love here from all around the world, this spacious two-bedroom appartement is ideal as a second-home, for summer or long-term rentals or as a beautiful appartment all year long.
The property is on the first floor of a beautiful stone building with a view over both over the high street and overlooking a courtyard to the rear.
The downstairs communal entrance lobby is in excellent condition with an original tiled floor and an impressive central staircase.
The appartment has conserved much of its period charm.
The door to the appartment opens onto a small internal hallway, with a cupboard for coats with a separate WC.
The hallway leads the central room, an impressively spaced reception room, with a gorgeous original parquet floor that lends a graceful period feel to the room.
The main reception room overlooks the high street and benefits from two tall windows which flood the room with light.
There is also an old fireplace with a black marble surround which is not in use.
A half beamed wall separates the main living-room from a separate kitchen. This is a good sized room, with plenty of storage, with a rear pantry area and many cupboards.
To the front of the appartment, facing south, there is a double-sized bedroom also with a parquet floor.
A family bathroom (with a sink and bath tub) is shared by both bedrooms and is accessed from the hallway, where there is also a handy walk-in room, which could be used as a storage room or a dressing-room.
The second bedroom has a pale terra-cotta tiled floor and two large windows.
Our thoughts here at Bliss
With parks and long walks from the ramparts down to the surrounding countryside, this appartement is perfect for anyone wishing to live in a town which has year-round events. This property is easy to maintain and allows one to live car-free for much of the week, with the door to the appartement building opening directly onto a once-weekly thriving local market, with delicious local produce.
In excellent overall condition, one might wish to decorate and to create a more modern bathroom and kitchen. The property is priced to reflect this work.
We love the parquet floors, high ceilings, and the fact each room is bathed in light from two tall windows.
This property was lived in for many years as a main residence for a working artist, and with the lovely space and light one finds here, it is easy to see why.
