Stone Property in historical Lectoure
SWEEPING VIEWS OF LECTOURE & BEYOND
PROPERTY REF: BLISS-94
Agency Fees included (4.5%)
Fees payable by vendor.
Access to the house is atypical, as we enter first into an ancient barn, then up a flight of stairs to an upper courtyard level bathed in sunshine and created from the ruins of an old house and finally we see the house.
Access to the house is gained level by level, as if by coming inside once is shedding the world stage by stage as we climb to the doorway. First the garden, then the courtyard, and at last the house; on the south side of Lectoure and with superb views over the valley.
From the terrace to the house a custom-made iron-staircase leads the way, as if along the galley of a boat. From here there is a view below to a shaded courtyard below, where an ancient well sits in shade.
This property is quirky – and contemporary; young and fresh in style, though respectful restored so that the old stone walls, once part of the ramparts, are apparent throughout.
The main door leads directly into a comfortable reception room, with a fireplace, where a wood-burning stove might be fitted. (The stove which currently sits here is for decorative purposes only).
The reception room opens directly onto a restful kitchen, painted in pale duck-egg blue, which has been beautifully fitted, furnished, and decorated and is spacious enough for a large dining-room table, and with access to the rear, north-facing terrace. This terrace offers a pleasant shaded space for outdoor dining during the summer months.
A second bedroom on the north side overlooks the courtyard.
On the first floor the bathroom has been recently refurbished with a contemporary feel, sitting with the cloakroom, between the two first-floor bedrooms.
The pièce de resistance is most certainly the third floor; a stunning renovation which is a credit to the artistic skills of the owner.
This master bedroom with its metal framed windows, has stunning views on two sides. The owner has shown careful attention in the exact recreation of the decorative wooden frieze work which runs along the outside on two sides.
Carefully dissimulated behind the rear partition wall, is a shower room, and a cloak room, which must win a prize for having the most superb view in the history of toilets!
The upper floor to the property is a magical space. Up in the “eaves” of the town, one has the impression of being suspended above the horizon, out of time and place. As if in a hot-air balloon, or in a loft apartment that is somehow complete and apart from the rest of the house.
WHAT WE THINK
The light and the views – in abundance!
The upper floor….and all of the magic of Lectoure.
NB: Our working relationships are built on mutual trust with our vendors. By so doing we are able to show photographs which clearly indicate the location of a property. This is not current practice in France. However, it should be noted in such cases that the current owner has chosen to advertise exclusively with our agency as he/she does not wish to enter into negotiations privately with potential buyers or to be contacted directly, choosing to remunerate an agency instead of handling the sale privately. All agency fees are payable by the VENDOR. We cordially invite all buyers interested in viewing a property to contact our agency. We are happy to advise and help throughout the process.
