House / Villa
Land 85400 m² (about 918050 ft²)
At the end of a tree-lined drive and surrounded by fields and woodland, sits this fabulous château dating in part from the 15th century, the main chateau building in the chartreuse style dating from the mid 1700s, all in very good condition. Very well looked after and tastefully modernised in part, there are still many original features and plenty of character in this charming family home. The volume and space offered by the downstairs reception rooms (with a sitting room of 63m²!) means that this house could be used as a party venue, conference facility, wedding venue, exhibition space or simply as a place to bring all your friends and family together. While most of the main house is in excellent condition with four good bedrooms, there are still three bedrooms upstairs to renovate, one of which at 46m² would make a beautiful parental suite, which you could arrange to your own taste. Next to the main house in a wing you find another three bedroom property in very good condition, tastefully renovated in keeping with the main house and the prestige of the property. As well as a garage in this wing, there is also an outbuilding of over 200m² on two floors where all the main works - roof, windows, floors, have been done. This just needs someone with an eye to finish it off, and you have three renovated properties in this beautiful setting. As you mount the steps to the château, it really feels like you could be stepping back in time. The entrance hall has double doors at both ends allowing light to flood in with tommette tiles and a old wood and tommette staircase at the far end. To the left is the huge salon with two sets of double doors from the hall. It has to be seen! The volume and light and character are all there. The floor is tommettes, there is a huge fireplace, there are four enormous windows, and another two sets of double doors leading to the 43m² bureau or second salon. It is said that this room used to lead to a chapel, sadly no longer there, but the family have a history of the property they are willing to pass on to the next owners. To the right you find a small study next to a shower room, a renovated dining room with fireplace and a large bright kitchen with a pantry. From this area you can access the other house without going outside. It also leads to the two huge store rooms, the wine cellar and the boiler room. Upstairs in the house to the right you have three bedrooms, recently renovated with a bathroom and a dressing room. To the left you have the old part of the house which hasn't been touched for years and retains lots of lovely original features - the long corridor with doors off to the left, parquet flooring, interconnecting doors, an old fireplace and windows that give views of the drive and the countryside. One of these rooms is in good condition, the others are to do. The house in the wing is used as a family home but could be a gîte or used as chambres d'hôtes. Downstairs there is a big living space with a woodburning stove, and a door to the garden behind. The kitchen and laundry area is practical and compact and opens out to the beautiful front courtyard. Upstairs there are three good sized bedrooms and a shower room. As well as a garage and a hangar, both in good condition and well maintained, there is further scope for developement at the end of the wing – a building where all the main works have been done, it is just waiting for someone to finish it off. The property sits in 8,5 hectares of manicured garden, fields and woodland. It's a haven of peace & tranquility. It has a swimming pool and is only 3kms to the market town of Fleurance with shops even closer. This is a must see for those thinking of a project in the Gers as the possibilities with this property are endless.
