Property Description

General Overview Situated within Gascony's “Golden Triangle" centered on the rolling hills of the Tenareze heading from the capital of the Gers, Auch, towards Lectoure and Condom, this stone-built property sits high on its own promontory with unrivalled views of the surrounding countryside to the Pyrenees. A long driveway affords the property complete privacy and tranquillity and yet it is close to the bustling spa village of Castera-Verduzan with its many amenities and Sunday market. The imposing main house has been beautifully and sensitively restored to create a sylish and comfortable family home with a welcoming ambiance. It has three large bedrooms each with its own bathroom and there is scope to create an additional master suite with bathroom and sitting room. Guests are catered for in the old wine store and press which have been converted into a spectacular living space that has earned the guest house a place on a list of Europe's coolest holiday villas published by the Sunday Times. Surrounding the houses, spacious, professionally-landscaped grounds of just over 2.2 acres (1 hectare) feature mature trees, manicured lawns, bird-friendly hedgerows, shrubberies and glorious flower beds. The House With its splendid high ceilings.......a stylish, lovely home. The house's habitable surface area of 290 m2 comprises a fitted kitchen with adjoining dining room, a study-come-library, a living room (with wood-burning stove) and three spacious bedrooms one of which is on the ground floor for improved accessibility. Each bedroom has a large bathroom with heated towel rails and there is underfloor heating throughout the ground floor. The airy hallway running the width of the house can serve as a dining room in the Gascon tradition. A utility room off the hallway also serves as a guest cloakroom. The Guest Accommodation The former wine-store or chai has been converted into a spectacular guest house with a monumental chimney with wood-burning stove to supplement the underfloor heating. Large enough to host a dance or concert, the main room is perfect for entertaining and the guest house has its own fitted kitchen (with sun-drenched terrace), separated from the main room by a breakfast bar. A double bedroom on the mezzanine floor has its own bathroom while the ground floor also has a utility room with shower. A separate double bedroom in what was once the pressoir where the grapes were crushed has its own large, walk-in shower and a private terrace. On the south side of the guest house, with views over the countryside to the mountains, is a covered terrace which adds a harmonious, alfresco touch to this fabulous space. Ideal for family and friends, the guest house could also be rented out for additional income. The Swimming Pool Discretely located in the park overlooking the countryside, this 12x5.5 swimming pool is perfect for relaxing and swimming on hot summer days.
