Oozing character and charm, this delightful property offers tranquility and seclusion in the heart of rural Gers. With a separate gite for income potential (or independent accommodation for family and friends), the two buildings are set in a pretty landscaped garden and ideally combine a superb rural setting with accessibility to amenities.
Just 10 minutes away by car is a village with boulangerie and café/restaurant, and slightly further afield (15-20 minutes) Nogaro offers all main amenities. A short drive (25 minutes) in the other direction takes you to the historic town of Eauze, which boasts one of the best weekly farmers’ markets in the area. Toulouse international airport is approximately 90 minutes by car.
With exposed woodwork and original features throughout, the timber-frame main house offers comfortable accommodation full of character. It has been enhanced by the addition of a fully-glazed room, currently used as a dining area. Light and airy, this room makes the most of a lovely outlook over the garden, and a sliding door provides access to the outside.
Off the dining room on one side is a hallway, with original floor tiles and another door to the garden. A couple of steps up from the hall lead you into a traditional country kitchen/breakfast room, again with original floor tiles, exposed beams, and a superb stone fireplace with log burner. There is a good range of storage cupboards, an electric oven and an induction hob. There is also plumbing for a dishwasher and ample space for a large fridge/freezer. Three windows give a pretty view over the garden and fields beyond.
The kitchen opens up to a lounge - a warm and welcoming room, with wooden flooring and exposed beams. A large glazed door from here opens to the dining room, and a curving wooden staircase leads to the first floor.
Also on the ground floor, is a pretty double bedroom and a bathroom with bath/overhead shower and w/c. A separate pantry houses the washing machine and tumble dryer.
Upstairs in the main house is a light and spacious double bedroom with en-suite shower room and w/c. Across the landing is another double, and a second shower room with w/c. There is also a compact office area off the landing.
Across the gravelled driveway is the neighbouring gite, which has been successfully rented as holiday accommodation for several years. Stairs lead up to a generous terrace which makes the most of glorious views over the surrounding countryside. Double doors from the terrace open to a light, open-plan kitchen/living/dining room. Off here a short corridor (with built-in wardrobe and shelf storage) leads to one double and one twin bedroom. There is a w/c and shower room, which also houses the washing machine.
Beneath the gite is a good-sized garage/workshop, which houses the central heating boiler and oil tank.
The grounds at this property have been sensitively landscaped to create a lovely garden, that is sheltered and private, yet still retains a sense of openness to the surrounding countryside. A generous curving terraced area leads to the swimming pool (9 x 4.5m), and there is also an in-built barbecue.
