Perched on the edge of an ancient Gascon village, facing south towards the mountains, this stunning property sits on 3.7 hectares of land, with a separate 1.3-hectare plot of woodland, and over 700m2 habitable space divided between three distinct period properties in stone. Included within this surface area, is a constructible plot of land of one hectare, with planning permission for four properties. Individual plans (according to the new owner's individual design), will need to be submitted to further this building project. The property benefits from two separate driveways, the first to the original farmhouse, leading directly from the village, the second leading to the front of the main house in the now converted south-facing barns, with far-reaching views to the Pyrenees. The property comprised three impressive stone dwellings, in the pure white stone so beloved of Gascony. The stone captures the sunlight, a perfect contrast to the deep blue skies of summer; ensuring that the overall impression one has of the property is that of a handsome and elegant building. The current owner developed the property to accommodate with ease up to twenty-six guests and has created a property flexible enough to be used for a multitude of purposes, not least commercial, for a buyer looking to generate a lucrative income in Gascony. The current owner bought the original farmhouse and its outbuildings in what was at the time very poor condition, carefully developing much of the property in keeping with local tradition and incorporating a training centre into one of the main converted barns. Projects other than a training centre are easily imaginable; from the hosting of weddings, or family events; a creative writing or language school, a workshop for a photographer. Space is key with this property, both internal and external, and any business requiring space for its development, will find much to recommend this property. As mentioned earlier, one should not forget that with the additional buildings plots, there is the possibility (with approval from local authorities) for the construction of four houses in place. One might easily envisage something less conventional: yurts, eco-pods, gypsy caravans, or wooden chalets perhaps. The main house is the heart of the property and provides spacious living accommodation as a stand alone property or when opened out into the second ''gate'' section adjacent to it. These two properties share the same roof, whereas the third is a stand-alone property sitting some distance apart, and entirely separate. The gardens which surround the property have been developed by the current owner from what was once a simple agricultural plot, to become a place of beauty, with an orchard containing a multitude of trees, adding considerable aesthetic value to the house, and pastures with space for the horses to graze. The property sits above its parkland in an elevated south-facing position, contributing to the sense one has of ''dominating'' the landscape, with views as far as the eye can see. The sky-line here is impressive, a vast stretch of open space such as one never sees from a built-up area, displaying an artist's palette of colours, from deep winter red, to navy blue on a sunny day, or a backdrop black as pitch to a galaxy of stars on a winter's night. The front façade of the property faces the view and the skyline, from the main kitchen and reception room, so that from the property one turns outwards towards the countryside, forgetting that one's back is turned towards the village. A village which nonetheless offers protection and a sense of security. The sense of space outdoors is magical. An old barn with a picture frame opening faces south, and creates an informal outdoor dining-room, the view framed as one might an oil-painting. The setting is tranquil and bucolic, yet not isolated. If the owners so wish, they can be part of a small but vibrant village of incontestable beauty, just a short drive from the
