Large family residence with 7 bedrooms and 5ha of land
This 7-bedroomed family home (habitable surface area 270m²) is on the outskirts of a small village and is only minutes from Marciac and its famous Jazz Festival. The house was built in 1986 so benefits from modern construction, but the owners have added many period features to give the house the feel of a rather grand old farmhouse. The beams in the living room are from an old chateau and the stone évier and ornate carved doors were reclaimed and have been used to make wardrobes and cupboards.
Situated in a lovely countryside location, the house is reached by a long private driveway off a small country lane. However, it is walking distance from a beautiful medieval village which has a small general store, a butcher and a very good restaurant
The property comprises:
On the ground floor:
From a covered porch you enter into the living room (68.5m²) with large open fireplace and dining area with a second fireplace which has an insert wood-burner. The floor is terracotta tile and wood and has exposed beams. Through a set of double doors is a larder and insulated wine store. Through to the fitted kitchen (26.7m²) with dining area and french windows to the south-facing terrace and stairs to the first floor. Next to the kitchen is the utility room (8.56m²) which has a sink and is plumbed for a washing machine.
Down the corridor there is a study (8.64m²). Bedroom 1 (14.38m²) which looks out over the garden. Bedroom 2 (14.45m²) has fitted wardrobes and bedroom 3 (11.9m²). All these rooms have electric radiators and tiled floors. The main bathroom (7.81m²) has a bath and sink. The second bathroom (4.21m²) has a shower and sink. Just opposite is the WC (2.83m²).
On the first floor:
The landing (12.6m²) has a velux window and access hatch to storage space in the eaves. Along the corridor is bedroom 4 (9.09m²) with wooden floor. Bedroom 5 (14.4m²), bedroom 6 (14.5m²) and bedroom 7 (12.1m²) all have wooden floors. The bathroom (6.7m²) comprises bath, bidet and sink. Separate WC (1.6m²). There is a linen cupboard (3.3m²) with shelving.
The land totals 50,302m² and is made up of fields and garden. The garden is mostly laid to lawn and the current owners have planted approximately 33 fruit trees (including apple, figs, pear, nectarine, peach, apricot and plum). There are numerous mature trees, shrubs and over 120 rose bushes. The vegetable garden is well used and provides an abundance of produce. In front of the house there is a 6m² lake which is approximately 4m deep. The current owners used to swim in it, but over time it has become a bit green, but with the inclusion of special plants there is no reason why it should not be transformed into an eco pool
There are 5 large outbuildings, the largest is 135m² and is of concrete construction and has water and electricity. In the big field there are four more buildings each one is 47m² (one has electricity). These would be ideal to convert to chalets for rental purposes.
