Revisited with a modern touch Ancient farmhouse with all modern comforts Once upon a time, not so very long ago, a sleepy Gascon farmhouse was totally revolutionized by its passionate owners and transformed into a dazzling ball of shimmering modernity. Every last centimetre has been revisited, revamped and modernized, with careful attention to the preservation of the original stone walls. The project was carried out over many years and no expenditure spared. As the current owners will tell you themselves, this home was their folly: a project where two people followed their heart’s desire and lavished some modern magic on this lovely old stone property without counting the centimes. Whatever the best was, the best was used for this project. Welcome to a property, quite unlike any other we have in our portfolio... Where are we? The property is located within an easy ten-minute drive of Condom. To the other side is the busy market town of Lectoure. A popular part of Gascony, with its rolling hills and rich local and international community. The exterior of the property The property is approached along a small road, within easy distance of the local village, and the bigger market towns of Lectoure and Condom. Electric gates open onto a neat gravel driveway (from which all weeds are banished) to the front door, where there is an outside parking area for several vehicles. In addition to the external parking area, a double garage is linked to the house by an archway which frames the views to the south of Gascony, capturing the rolling hills in an ever moving and vibrant tableau. The garden is neat and tidy, and easily maintained, mostly laid to lawn with trees and palms. A large external terrace links the eastern and southern wings of the house. On entering the property …. We arrive in a grand entrance hall; minimalistic and uncluttered, with an impressive stone staircase which rises elegantly to the first floor as if floating. The space is light and bright with high ceilings. The glazed sliding doors which open onto the terrace are designed for maximum light. A passageway leads from the entrance hall, where there is a WC, a laundry room, a downstairs bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and a walk-in wardrobe. The bedroom benefits from sliding glass doors to the garden. The laundry room is accessible directly from the outside with generous room for storage. The heart of the house …. The main reception room offers sweeping views of the Gascon countryside. Large bifold glass panels slide open, blending the boundaries between exterior and interior. In winter the boundaries are redrawn, as the view is enjoyed once more, from inside this warm and well insulated bubble. Beyond the reception room, is a dining hall; a vast space comprising the kitchen at one end and a seating area to the other. From the bar there are views to the north, south and east. The kitchen is a fabulous working area which has been designed and equipped to the highest standard. This entire area has an impressive double-heighted ceiling. In this section of the property there is a second downstairs bedroom with en-suite facilities and a walk-in dressing-room with sliding doors to the gardens. The continuation of stone-tiling throughout, lends a sense of harmony to the property, with the reassurance of security glazed windows in every room. Up the floating stone stairs to bed… At the top of the staircase there is a bathroom with a jacuzzi and a walk-in Italian shower. A minstrels’ gallery leads to the master bedroom, with its own private terrace and south facing views. The master bedroom has the type of dressing-room to encourage a flourishing wardrobe and one which it would be a pleasure to fill. What would I need to do if this property were mine? Technically nothing that we can see. The pleasure this property affords is the same as the one an artist feels when facing a blank canvas. One can choose to be minimalist, as the current owners undoubtedly are in their décor and choice of materials. Equally, one could choose to overlay the existing structure with almost any style of décor, and to fill the house and gardens from top to bottom. Whatever one chooses, the guarantee is simple. Everything that needs to be done in this property has been thought through and designed to the highest of standards. It would be difficult to inject further funds into the interior of this property, on top of the budget that has already been poured into these old stone walls. The pleasure would be in choosing the furniture to place here and in enjoying the vibrant area around and relishing the peace of mind that comes from the previous owners having tackled the restoration of this lovely Gascon building. If pushed, tree planting and garden design might very well be the next project to which one could turn one’s attention. The property and gardens still have that very fresh “newly finished” feel, and future owners might well wish to develop the area and to plant it up. The addition of a pool would be welcome (relevant planning permissions pending). Who would this property suit? Lovers of contemporary stone-based properties will love this purists’ retake on a Gascon stone house. This is the perfect property against which to set contemporary-design or statement pieces of furniture and would work well both as a secondary and main residence. Plus points Complete rebuild of property with high quality fittings and fixtures throughout Toasty warm and well-insulated throughout Under-floor heating throughout on ground floor (oil) View upon view to the south Easily to manage garden, low maintenance design Popular location close to both Lectoure and Condom (easy access to Toulouse Blagnac and TGV station in Agen)
