Vintage Twist to Beautifully Restored 6 bedroom property To the Manor Born! - spacious property with outbuildings on the outskirts of Auch Located in over two hectares of tranquil wood and parkland on the St Jacques de Compostela route, this manor house, which dates back as early as the 17th century, is a short drive from the centre of Auch, the administrative capital of Gascony, with its Cathedral, numerous shops, cafés and restaurants. The property which offers over 400m2 of living space sits in the middle of its grounds with all the elegance one expects from a manor house, with its long gravel driveway, tall gates and lawns with ancient shrubs and trees. The façade is decorative and playful, with its wooden fret-work balcony, roofline friezes ('lambrequins') and mixture of brick and stone. The owner tells us that on first seeing the property he felt it would be the perfect setting for a Claude Sautet movie and one can see why. The 19th century parkland is full and mysterious with a section of vineyard and multiple seating-areas with formal and ancient box-hedging clipped into neat topiary bushes of considerable size. The gardens were in a state of abandon by the previous owners but there were important vestiges such as the magnificent sopora tree which is over a hundred years old and a beautiful oak tree which is over four hundred years old. In addition to the many existing boxwood bushes over a thousand new plants have been added - the dream of any topiary specialist! - as well as yew trees and bower trees. With its external air of mystery, the interior is somewhat of a surprise, revealing not only a wealth of original features (original floors, decorative plasterwork, fireplaces etc) but also a demonstration of ultimate luxury with a vintage twist, and a seamless blending of old and new! The property benefits faces both east and west, ensuring light-filled rooms throughout the day. The main doorway opens onto an elegant hallway with its original black and white cement floor tiles and an impressive wooden 'directoire' staircase which serves each of the property's three levels. The staircase to the top floor is in poplar and a second service staircase can be accessed from the end hallway, where there is a magnificent laundry room with retro wooden shelving and work surfaces. Possibly the most elegant laundry room seen here at BLISS to date! On the ground floor the rooms flow harmoniously around the central staircase, with a double-reception room, dining-room, kitchen, and games room. The kitchen has been beautifully fitted with Belgium blue floor tiles offering a pleasing tinge of bluish grey. The black metal windows with fixed panels of glass over the sink lend a contemporary note in the style of an atelier. There is a mixture of fine wooden storage cupboards and a stone fireplace (Heynault) with a grill to cook meat and fish over open flames. In the double aspect reception-room there is a central black marble surround fireplace. The television screen is hidden behind a moveable chimney-breast panel which adds a note of James Bond mystery to the room. The floorboards are stunning: long strips of bleached wood which contrast beautifully with the dark grey walls. The choice of paintwork throughout the property is impressive and the bold colours contrast nicely with the architectural features of the rooms : such as the burnt cherry-red dining-room with its decorative panelling or the 'faux' wallpaper in the entrance hall - which is not paper at all, but paintwork carefully executed to the millimetre in contrasting stripes. A selection of natural stones has been used throughout the property (Margot, Horus, Porcher) which adds to the classically rich and beautiful feel of this home. Throughout this property there is a finery equated with the turn of the last century combined with all the luxury of today. The bedrooms on the upper two floors are spacious in size with tall eighteenth century windows affording views of the parkland to each side. The bathrooms are of particular note. The taps, sinks, showers and bathrooms are worthy of the finest private hotel - with the quirky retro elegance of The Ritz hotel or the Orient Express. To the rear of the pool there is a salt water pool with an electric cover. The property boasts a beautiful pigeon tower ('pigeonnier') which was restored in 2001 adjacent to which is a large barn and stable block. What needs doing ... The sewage system for the property functions perfectly but does not meet current regulatory standards. The roof is in good condition - some tiles need replacing. A quote with a local builder has been established for 4000 euros (to be verified). This property will appeal to ..... Lovers of bourgeois homes with elegant decorative features and the highest level of fixtures and fittings. The busy market town of Auch will appeal to anyone seeking privacy but not isolation. Images that come to mind : elegant topiary gardens - the sound of gravel crunching beneath feet, cars pulling up the long formal driveway for parties! The stone pillars in the garden and formal entrance way emphasise the architectural grandeur of the property from the outset. But this is a residence which is a comfortable home - not a museum! The stunning central staircase is one of the many original features certain to appeal to lovers of historical homes. Key points Reception Room Dining - room Kitchen 6 bedrooms 3 bathrooms 1 shower room Oil central heating Non-collectif sewage system Salt pool 10m x 5m Security system with alarm - controlled from a distance Electric gates at entrance Parkland Pigeon tower Barn Stable block Fully restored between 2008 and 2010
