Description

Exceptional stone Country Property, on a dominant hilltop location, at a 10 minutes' drive from the thriving market town of Lectoure. It has breath-taking & far-reaching views over the surrounding countryside. Its origins date back to the 13th Century, in the following centuries it has been transformed into a ‘château' and a little further in time the squared watch tower has been added. The current owners have renovated the property whilst respecting and maintaining the beautiful original features. The estate has evolved over the centuries, and its setting in the middle of its pretty garden is amazing.

The Property is entered through double gates and a long driveway leads to the pretty grounds. The main house of 388 m² is composed of a 50 m² kitchen with original terracotta floor tiles and a stone fireplace, a laundry room and a scullery with its original bread oven. A cosy living room with a stone fireplace, a piano room, a cloakroom and the boiler room.

From the outside terrace you have access to a separate guest suite with a large downstairs bedroom and private bathroom, as well as a workshop.

A beautiful stone staircase leads to a second covered terrace giving access to the first floor where there is a spacious bathroom and two large bedrooms of about 50 m² each, one of which has an adjoining study which can be used as a third bedroom. On this floor there is an additional 70m² which can be renovated according to your wishes.

A very large stone outbuilding (non-attached) of 180 m² with high ceilings and currently composed of various different areas. A large party room, workshop/garage, storage room, etc.

Outside, the beauty of the site will amaze you. The parkland garden of about 1 hectare is very well planted with a nice variety of mature trees and shrubs. The setting is very quiet and private, with no direct neighbours. A large swimming pool of 6 x 12 m with an electric cover and a terrace all around. This Property is a real gem and is not to be missed
