This 18th century oak framed farmhouse has beautiful panoramic views over rolling countryside and, on a clear day, a stunning outlook over the Pyrenees. Sitting in the middle of a hectare of land, with a luscious landscaped garden and mature fruit trees, the property has been tastefully restored to an exceptionally high standard. The ground floor of the house and outdoor terraces are limestone sourced directly from a quarry near Cahors and upstairs the solid Gersois oak flooring is in keeping with the many original features that have been retained.
Outside, has been designed with summer living and partying in mind whether for small gatherings or larger celebrations. The 12x6 metre heated swimming pool, set within the mature gardens, is just a few steps away from 2 large covered eating areas, one of which boasts a dance floor and a magnificent view over the countryside. A third one, shaded by mulberry trees, is the perfect spot for an al fresco breakfast or early evening drinks. There are two purpose built barbecues, one that has catered for 75 people, and another more secluded one closer to the house. Close to the kitchen is the herb garden and potager
Also on the property is a large dry oak framed barn which is currently used for storage but which has had planning permission for conversion into a 4 bedroom property.
Skilled local craftsmen have beautifully restored the house which includes a custom made oak kitchen with granite work surfaces and hand built stairs that incorporate the original manger from the barn.
Downstairs, is a spacious open plan kitchen, dining room and garden room, a large lounge with an imposing wood burning stove, double bedroom, an Italian shower room, an office⁄5th bedroom, utility room and walk-in pantry⁄wine cellar. This area has underfloor central heating.
Upstairs, the master bedroom with its breakfast balcony has hand built fitted solid oak wardrobes and an en suite with bath and shower. There are 2 further large double bedrooms and another shower room. All these rooms have electric radiators.
Whilst in a rural location, the local market town of Eauze is just 10 minutes drive away and the local shop, selling everything from bread, fruit, cheese, cooked meats and all manner of local produce is only a 5 minute drive away.
