Lectoure
860.000 €

This impressive estate sits at the entrance to Lectoure in the heart of the countryside in over three hectares of pasture and woodland, just a few minutes' drive from the centre of town. This property is secluded and utterly peaceful, without being isolated. This property is unusual in so far as it offers: a manor house, a second large stone house, a vast stone barn providing a workshop, a garage, a large contemporary urban-style office with separate access, and two stables, a sizeable plot of land, two beautiful woods and a pool. The property faces south with views over the rich and rolling valleys of Lectoure with the picturesque cameo of the Château de Plieux etched on the horizon. A long white chalk driveway leads from the road via the private woodland and pasture, past the second stone house and to the main ''maison de maitre.'' Here, a dry-stone wall encircles an ancient chestnut tree which provides valuable shade in the summer and place for parking. The property is a typical Gascon manor house. This house, part of which was once a watchtower, is covered in ivy whose leaves vary in shade from summer greens to brightest reds in autumn. The original door opens onto a wide and generous hallway which runs the full length of the house to the gardens and terrace at the rear. The rooms are laid out symmetrically. On the left there is a dining-room with a decorative marble fireplace; to the right a formal reception-room with a large open fireplace overlooking a shady east-facing terrace. There is a long galley-styled laundry and boot-room with an outside door. The kitchen sits at the far end of the hallway. This is a spacious « L » shaped room with double-aspect windows to the north and to the west. The kitchen offers a blend of traditional style with its exposed stone walls, and contemporary modern furnishings. On the other side of the hallway from the kitchen is the family sitting-room, warm in ambiance, with a black wood-burning stove and French-doors to the gardens. A beautiful and original staircase curves gracefully up to the first floor. In the first section, a master suite faces south, comprising a very large bedroom, a bathroom with a free-standing bath, two separate sink units and a study/dressing-room which could also be used as a separate double bedroom with shared use of the parental bathroom. This area has a separate WC On the other side of the hallway there is a large bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and dressing-room (currently in the process of being refurbished), and two further bedrooms which share a family bathroom with a corner bath/shower and separate WC The original staircase has been extended to the second floor where a loft-style bedroom beneath the eaves provides an ideal studio for older children with a separate bath and shower room and a dressing room. The property provides further accommodation in a second house which is entirely different in character from the first. The second house feels closer to a Chartreuse in character and is too spacious and beautiful to be labelled a ''gîte'' or ''guest house''. This is a sizeable property in its own right, and future owners of the house could easily decide to turn this into their main home, letting out the maison de mâitre. The second house benefits from a vast open-plan reception-room and kitchen opening onto two spacious downstairs bedrooms, two bathrooms (one of which is en-suite). The upper floor of the building with its old wattle and daub ''colombage'' walls has been boarded out with water pipes pre-lain to provide space for two further bedrooms and a bathroom. The upper floor is currently accessible via a ladder. The current owners will leave the choice of the staircase to future buyers along with the completion of a third upstairs bathroom, for which the preparatory work of laying pipes and putting in drains is already complete. The property reserves yet a further surprise! The current owner has developed a private office in a different section of the b
