Handsome & Spacious Countryside House With Pool And Outbuildings On Over 2.2 Acres (1 Ha) Of Garden, Orchard And Meadow – Countryside Location
This handsome and spacious countryside house is of a habitable surface area of 244m². In good order it comprises kitchen, sitting room, dining room, utility room and bathroom on the ground floor, and two separate staircases leading to two bedrooms and two bathrooms on one side and to two bedrooms, study and artist’s studio on the other. Swimming pool and several outbuildings including a garage, workshop, sheds and storage. Land of just over 1 hectare (10,975m²) divided in such a way so as to have created several charming spaces: garden, orchard and meadow.
Close to the attractive and dynamic village of MONTESQUIOU in the Gers, under 15 minutes from the market town of MIRANDE with full amenities and 20 minutes from the town of MARCIAC famous for its international Jazz festival.
Of a total habitable surface area of 244m², this house is of particular interest due to the fact that it is very adaptable. It can either be used in its entirety as a large 4-bed home, or one can only use part (sitting room, kitchen and two bedrooms) most of the time which would be perfect for a couple or person on their own who has guests for holidays, thereby reducing running and up-keep costs. One could even easily envisage a seasonal letting activity. There is a kitchen and sitting room off the original entrance hall, as well as a laundry room, with one staircase leading to two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
On the other side of the house there is a large entrance hall which leads on to the dining room with a delightful terrace in a courtyard. This entrance hall also connects with the kitchen and laundry room and there is also in this part a shower room, as well as the other staircase which leads up to two bedrooms, a study and a lovely artist’s studio of 27m². With a few straightforward alterations this part could become independent from the main house.
Electric heating and wood-burner.
The Land and Pool:
Of a total surface area of 1ha09a75ca (10.975m²), the land is divided by hedges into distinct areas. In front of the house is the pool and the garden with its lawn and lovely flowers. Here, there are good views of the countryside with the village as a backdrop. A little further on there is a nice parcel of meadow. On the eastern side of the house there is a charming covered terrace which is adjacent to the dining room in a lovely courtyard formed with the old outbuildings, pig sties and hen house. Adjacent are the orchard and another meadow which envelops the property to the rear of the buildings.
Swimming pool with new liner, 8x4.
The house is in the countryside only a couple of minutes from the village of Montesquiou with its basic amenities and services.
