residences for sale - lot-et-garonne

A nuisance-free Gascony residence and outbuildings
with more than 8 ha of woods and grasslands in Lot-et-Garonne

Location

Equidistant from Bordeaux and Toulouse – on the borders of the French departments of Lot-et-Garonne and Gers – as well as the Albret and Armagnac regions. Near to two subprefectures: Nérac and Condom, tourist and historic meccas.
Agen, the Prefecture of the French department of Lot-et-Garonne, is but 25 minutes away. It has a railway station, with 190-minute links to Paris via TGV train, and an airport, with 3 return, 80-minute flights to Paris-Orly per day. The region has managed to preserve its tourist trade whilst remaining authentic. The regions of Albret, Gascony and Armagnac all suggest a certain quality of life: a reputation far from being lost!

Description

The property is accessed via a narrow, little used country lane, followed by a short driveway lined with old mulberry trees.
At the end is a semi-circular arched, stone gateway, supported on either side by a low wall connecting two dwellings, and also defining the perimeters of an inner courtyard.
Facing one another are a large luxurious home, flanked by a former dovecote, and an outbuilding which has been converted into a guest house.
Set in twelve or so hectares, the buildings are surrounded by wooded parklands including a variety of species with fruit trees as well as lime, plane, cedar, redwood and hazelnut trees.
There is a swimming pool with a pool-house in the garden to the rear of the house on the south side.

The large, luxurious home

The main house spans two floors and is extended at its ends via a lean-to building as well as a second construction which links up with the former dovecote. The gable roofs feature Roman tiles.
This tastefully decorated house is warm and welcoming as well as comfortable.


Ground floor
A long, through corridor in the extension constitutes a second entrance (courtyard - garden); followed by a “dining room” with a stone monumental fireplace that opens on to the kitchen; these two rooms are separated but by the wooden framework of an old half-timbered wall.
First floor
A straight, wooden stairway leads upstairs to the children’s den: a music or television room, the ideal place for making any amount of noise without disturbing the rest of the house.

Each of the entrance hall features a stairway (large, wooden, quarter turn stairway in the vestibule; straight, wooden stairway for the corridor) leading up to the first floor: a mezzanine floor is currently in use as a study area; a bedroom with sloping ceilings; a separate bathroom; a master suite (a large dressing and an adjoining bathroom) and four large bedrooms, one of which has an adjoining shower room.
All the bedrooms are extremely luminous and comfortable, notably that of the children, with its two large cupboards on either side of a wooden fireplace as well as its “home-made” bunk bed that makes adults regret their age.

The dovecote tower

The 2-storey, dovecote tower, spanning a floor surface area of 25 m², is located on the far west side of the kitchen and the children’s television room. Awaiting complete conversion, it currently does not communicate with the rest of the house.

The caretaker’s accommodation and garages

On the north side, facing the large, luxurious home, the service quarters form a two-storey building topped with a Roman tile roof.

This comprises a dwelling (approx. 107 m²) that is currently occupied by the caretakers, a garage, a studio flat and various storage areas.


Ground floor
The ground floor of the dwelling includes a kitchen, a scullery, a dining room, a living room, a bedroom, a bathroom and a separate toilet. Upstairs, there are two bedrooms, a shower room and a separate toilet.

A large canopy borders the entire north facade, the south facade overlooking the inner courtyard.
All these buildings are in pristine condition and immaculately kept, although they have no distinct style. The accesses to these different sections are totally independent and do not create a nuisance for the main residence.

First floor
The first floor is accessed via a wooden stairway that leads up to a landing.

The farm shed

Set a little way away, a 200 m² farm shed that cannot be seen from the main house completes the property.

Our opinion

This haven of peace is ideal for nature lovers. There is no lack of leisure, cultural and sporting activities for all ages. The fields and the oak woods surrounding the residence are an unlimited source for hiking or pony trekking, not forgetting mushroom picking!
This is obviously a real family home and a perfect place to spend holidays. The two separate dwellings provide enormous potential: rental possibilities, caretakers, a holiday home, accommodation for guests or domestic staff, or even, a residence for elderly parents (advantage of proximity, without the disadvantages of cohabitation).
Far from any nuisances, this character property has extension possibilities, notably through the conversion of the large dovecote tower which is currently not in use.
