This country estate dates back to the eighteenth century and sits in an impressive plot of eight hectares of land.
It is important to note that the land belonging to the property is not sub-let to farmers and is free from any form of contractual agreement with any third party, so that the future owner may use the land in any way he chooses. The land is currently used as prairie for the owner's horses.
It is also of interest to note, at a time where buyers are increasingly worried about the use of pesticides around their home, that the fields immediately surrounding the property belong to a local landowner who, as a passionate advocate of organic farming, has ensured the preservation of an area of natural beauty for as far as the eye can see.
The eight hectares sold with the property are ideal for anyone with horses or an agricultural project, or anyone seeking total privacy from neighbouring homes.
However, should future buyers wish, an agreement to purchase five of the eight hectares can be negotiated with the neighbouring organic farmer, thus reducing the price of the property by the approximately 60 000 euros.
The property itself will appeal to anyone seeking a period property in rural South West France. Between the two main buildings (the main house and the barn which is converted to a guest house) there is a total of nine bedrooms.
This property sits in a private backwater, close to the popular market town of Mauvezin and within easy reach of Toulouse international airport. It is also a short drive to many of the popular tourist towns of the Gers such as Lectoure, Fleurance and St Clar.
The property is filled with characterful features and has been restored in a sympathetic manner, providing a comfortable home requiring little, if any, work. The roofs have been restored and both the main house, the guest house and the outbuildings are in immaculate condition.
Built in the traditional Gascon style, the main door to the farmhouse opens onto a large central hallway, which bisects the property, South to North, with spacious outdoor terraces to both sides.
On the ground floor there is a comfortable reception room with an open fireplace in white stone, a library (beautifully fitted) a downstairs kitchen/breakfast room and a dining-room. The floors are a warm colour of terra cotta and are original; the thick oak beams have been lightened to create a soft and gentle interior. The ambiance is gentrified and although it has kept its period features it is not
