Outstanding Gascon farmhouse in delightful private location...
3 reception rooms
Set at the end of a private drive and with open views to the Pyrenees, this noble farmhouse dating from 1760, combines splendid period features with modern comfort. The grounds have an established, timeless feel with centenarian trees and a 15-metre swimming pool set in a generous swathe of lawn.
The property was reworked in its entirety in 2000 by the master builder owner using the finest traditional materials and techniques. The ground floor has period terracotta tiling with under-floor heating and lime wash & stucco wall finishes. The first floor has been re-laid throughout using wide boards in oak, poplar and maple and has Philippe Starck bathroom fittings.
The main façade has appealing ochre and cream detailing and overlooks an attractive graveled courtyard with water fountain feature. The L-shaped wing has a splendid upper living room with kitchenette that can be run as an independent unit. A tall covered barn is an ideal entertaining area aligned with the swimming pool.
The grounds are easy to maintain and form a long rectangle leading away from the house, framed by a mixed hedge to the rear and centenarian trees ending in a delightful oak coppice. An elegant swimming pool, 15x4m, is attractively set within a broad paved surround.
NB. For 16 years the property has been a treasured family home. A buyer should budget for interior redecoration and repairs to the base of the main facade. Plans exist for the kitchen to be enlarged incorporating the pantry and utility area.
