This prestigious property close to the historical town of Condom in the Gers in the heart of Gascony has its roots in the order of Cistercian monks attached to the nearby Abbey. The traces of this Cistercian history remain visible to this day in the ancien stone barn, which could be restored.

This lovely set of stone buildings is surrounded by stunning grounds with mature trees of just over 7 acres (3 hectares), as well as 17 acres (7 hectares) of meadows. The property is accessed via a long, private, tree-lined stone drive from a wrought iron gate with video-phone. This property is very discreet, private and in a very peaceful location with no nuisances and no neighbours - just 5 minutes to do the shopping.

The main house has been beautifully renovated and restored to create a warm and welcoming residence with authentic period features in stone and wood.

We particularly love the spacious reception room with its stone fireplace, exposed roof timbers and stone staircase; a convivial area ideal for entertaining. The salon, with its fireplace insert, is ideal for quiet reading and contemplation. It leads on to the downstairs bedroom with dressing room and en-suite.

In this bedroom there is a French window on to a terraced area by the swimming pool. A lovely fitted kitchen with floor in traditional clay tiles and a stone sink, conservatory and spacious utility room complete the ground floor.

On the first floor there are two roomy bedrooms, dual aspect with fitted wardrobes and shower rooms. There is storage in the attic space (in this house there is cleverly organised storage everywhere which we find very practical!).

Double glazing, loft insulation. Oil-fired central heating, as well as under-floor in the reception room powered by a heat pump. This house is very comfortable with high quality fittings (Weissman boiler, solar-powered hot water etc).

The second house dates from 1703 and has been regularly rented out as a holiday cottage for a number of years. It comprises a kitchen with dining room, salon, two bedrooms and shower room. This charming house is very cosy as it is centrally heated so can be used throughout the year.

The gorgeous swimming pool is large (12x6) and has a salt system. It overlooks the grounds, a restful and bucolic view.

The land, which is in one block, is of a total surface area of 10ha40a76ca. There is a very deep well on the property. There are mature trees on the grounds of the residence and they are very well maintained over their 3 hectares. Surrounding the grounds are meadows of about 7 hectares which would be very suitable for equines. The land slopes gently and is very well maintained.

If you are looking for a property suitable for equestrian use, this property would be easy to adapt to install all the usual installations (sand school, stables in the old stone barns...) and the meadows would look very attractive with wooden post and rail fencing.

The outbuildings comprise the utility/boiler room, which include the swimming pool equipment, of 27m² (with an attic above used for storage), the garage and the old stone barns.
