This stunning manor is nestled discretely at the end of its own beautiful, tree-lined drive. The setting is perfect: no neighbours, no noise but only a few minutes’ drive down a picturesque and tranquil country lane to a market town with full amenities and services. The manor is set in the middle of its 27.4 acres (11 hectares) of land which is all in one unit and which comprises the grounds, meadows and woodland. Swimming pool in a lovely walled area. Two guest cottages: one with a converted pigeon loft adjoining the main house and charming courtyard, and the other in the former stables. Large beautiful stone outbuildings in the authentic Gascon style. This is a country estate to fall in love with. An estate that is closely linked to important chapters of local history.

The Residence

With its exposed stone, period panelling, woodwork and ironwork, as well as its authentic glazing, the manor itself is refined and very seductive. The rooms are generously proportioned and filled with light. Each room has its own atmosphere: quietly sophisticated, more rustic, grander or intimate.

Of a habitable surface area of about 330m², on the ground floor one finds the entrance hall with its original staircase, the reception room, dining room and kitchen, sitting room and bedroom with en-suite. On the first floor there are 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.

Oil-fired central heating.

The first Guest Cottage – ‘The Pigeon Loft’

Adjoining the main house but with its own entrance is the first guest cottage, ‘The Pigeon Loft’. Of a habitable surface area of 115m² there are two bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen and spacious living room with mezzanine with traditional roof timbers. Between the cottage and the main residence is a lovely walled courtyard with an olive tree, perfect for al fresco dining together. Heating via wood-burner and electric radiators. Double glazed.

The second Guest Cottage – ‘The Old Stables’

Discretely situated to one side of the old stone pillars that guard the entrance to the manor itself is the second guest cottage in a converted stable block. Of a habitable surface area of 131m² this cottage comprises two bedrooms, shower room, kitchen and large living room. Gas central heating and fireplace. This house can be totally independent from the rest with its own entrance and no direct visibility, garage and garden. It would be the perfect place for housing a guardian and housekeeper.

The Swimming Pool

Situated in a gorgeous walled courtyard, the tiled, ‘L-shaped’ pool reigns over this space. BBQ area and large terrace. This is a very restful spot (whilst also being perfect for pool parties!)

The Outbuildings

There are substantial and various outbuidlings. In stone and traditional Gascon style with oak timbers and beams, they are in good order. They present plenty of potential for development. For example, one could envisage a reception hall for events: this estate would make an exceptional wedding venue. There are also the useful outbuildings such as garages and workshop that one needs for a property such as this.

The Land

The land, which is all in one unit, comes to 11ha10a53ca (111,053m²) and comprises the grounds around the buildings, large vegetable plot, orchard and lovely meadows of about 6 hectares, woodland with mature and fruit trees. Three ponds, spring with stone surround and two rainwater cisterns. The land envelops the manor and its outbuildings. One enjoys varying perspectives with open views from around the property over the surrounding countryside.
