Beautiful, Spacious Gascon Home In The Gers With 6 Bedrooms And Outbuildings On Magnificent Garden Of 4.000m². Lovely Countryside Setting With No Close Neighbours Only 5 Minutes From Shops And Services.
Beautiful, spacious 6-bed country home in Gascony, Gers. Situated in a peaceful rural setting with no close neighbours, this property is only 5 minutes from the amenities and services of a market town. With its large traditional outbuildings, this house offers good potential for future development and would be perfect for a large family and/or for generating an income by creating a B&B or holiday cottage (gite) type activity.
The house is in good condition and offers great room sizes and ceiling height. There are numerous features and in particular the lovely designs on certain floors and walls made out of river pebbles which blend harmoniously with the period features, woodwork and stone. This really is a very charming, light, friendly and welcoming house. We felt at home straight away! Maybe this feeling of homeliness and warmth finds an echo in this property's humanitarian past during the second world war when the then owners successfully sheltered and protected a Jewish family from the nazis.
Of a habitable surface area of 310m², there are 6 bedrooms (including one on the ground floor), two bathrooms (including one on the ground floor), sitting room, dining room, kitchen and utility room. The house is of classic Gascon layout for its period (around 1850) with a spacious entrance hall and rooms on either side.
