Gascon Country Farmhouse

Built in the Napoleonic period in delightfully unspoilt countryside, sitting on an escarpment with magnificent views all round with the Pyrenees on the southern skyline. Currently a rustic summer holiday property, sleeping 14 in comfort and with the potential to upgrade as a permanent home.
With a datestone 1810, the house is built in honey-coloured stone set off a remote country lane.
In the same ownership for more than 30 years the property retains all its period features including exposed beams, stone fireplaces, bread oven and terra cotta floors.
With blue shutters and wwisteria, grapevine and trumpets of Jericho climbing on the facades, the buildings have great visual appeal. The main house has a farmhouse kitchen and sitting room, both with stone fireplaces and 3 bedroom suites on the first floor. The wing has a summer dining room with a long table seating a dozen plus, 4 further bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
A freestanding stone barn with lofty ceiling is ideal for games and hobbies or for holding activities or housing a collection. The garden is a sweep of level lawn, appealing for the choice of sitting out areas for sun or shade. Attractive 12x6-metre swimming pool with pergola and outdoor dining terrace with barbeque. Surrounding all are great centenarian oaks and mature hedges.
The property is offered for sale including a large proportion of its furniture and equipment.
The drainage is in working order but no longer compliant and a buyer should budget on top to install a new system. Certain aspects of the accommodation are dated, decoration, kitchen and a bathroom and these are reflected in the asking price.
