This property is in the French department of Gers, in the south-west of France where authenticity has been preserved through a lack of any effects of trend or glamour. Only a small community of outsiders to this deep Gascony, a few shrewd English people, amongst others, have discovered and appreciated its particular appeal up until now. This discreetly concealed property, perfectly symbolic of its unfashionable region, can only be glimpsed once over the crest of a hill.
Auch and Tarbes (international airport and TGV train station with links to Paris) are but an hour away by road; Vic-Fézensac is 30 minutes away; a fortified town with all amenities (doctors, shops and schools) is ten minutes away.
Its location, slightly looking down on to the lake, makes the house a point of observation over the countryside worthy of any belvedere. Built of quarry stone blocks, half-timbering and cob, this 2-storey house is topped with a Roman tile roof. The original construction dates from 1851 according to the lintel above the entrance door. The current owners have added an extension that comprises a large lounge as well as a vast annex room in use as a games and physical exercise room. Vast picture windows open on to the terrace of a swimming pool that can be covered by a nest of sliding, curved Plexiglas units. A garage, intended for two cars, adjoins the east side.
The garage adjoins the house and can take two cars.
The size of this well-ventilated barn makes it the ideal place to store hay.
The stable is divided into two sections: a large farm shed spanning 36 m², currently used as an extra garage, and three horse loose boxes, each spanning 9 m².
The swimming pool
The 9x4.5 m, liner pool was added in 2012. It has a chlorine filtration system and a sliding cover.
This lake spans a surface area of 1.5 ha and goes down to a depth of 10 m.
It contains carnivorous fish such as perch and largemouth bass.
This property would be ideal for those seeking a home where beauty and tranquillity have been preserved. Happiness cannot be far from this haven of privacy that is extremely pleasant to live in. It lacks nothing! The modest but spacious, unpretentious house, with its reception lounges, has all modern-day home comforts. Its current layout, especially on the ground floor, gives free rein to the imagination of its new owners and could easily be modified to suit their requirements.
The surrounding countryside, exuding beauty that is almost sought-after, and its ideal adaptation to the horses’ way of life remains one of this property’s major assets. The fish-filled lake and the wild life that it attracts are also an obvious part of this.
