Property Overview

FCH799

For Sale

One hour from Bordeaux and just 10 minutes from the motorway, on the frontier of the Gers and Landes regions, lies this beautifully preserved and remarkably peaceful Maison du Maitre from the Directoire period. Hidden from view in grounds of 2.3ha the property is bordered by woodland, a stream and small lake. Renovated in 2015, the property combines striking authentic features such as grand carved stone fireplaces and hand cut terracotta floor tiles, with a careful renovation and comfortable living. Located just minutes from Labastide d'Armaganc, one of the prettiest market towns in les Landes, the surrounding countryside undulates with vineyards, oak woods and the gentle sunlight of south west France. For those seeking a place to retreat, for writers, artists or just those in need of a little bit of harmony, look no further. Coming through the wrought iron gates down a drive lined with irises and fauna, the property greets you with a friendly and welcoming appeal that speaks of long meals on sunlit terraces, afternoons reading and chatting in the shade and summer evenings gazing at endless skies. A large half-timbered barn of 220m², a dovecote and additional smaller outbuildings provide ideal potential for those seeking a gite project or wishing to create independent guest accomodation. Stables and pastureland also make this a superb option for anyone wishing to keep horses.

The house itself consists of approximately 250m2 of comfortable living space. As one enters, a dual aspect central corridor leads enfilade to two gracious sitting rooms each with ornate and functioning fireplaces. A large and fully appointed kitchen-dining room with range cooker and pretty Godin cast iron stove provide access to a sunny terrace whilst the utility room is practical and filled with storage options. The master bedroom with open fireplace leads to a private bathroom composed of twin sinks, a wet room, wc and bidet. A second ground floor bedroom is ideal for guests, and an additional WC and seperate bathroom complete the ground floor. The first floor offers a vast bedroom of 32m² with seating and study area, leading to an ensuite shower room. A large landing provides ample storage facilities and the two attics to either side of the landing could be easily converted into additional bedrooms.

Outside, a pretty covered terrace running the length of the southern wing provides a shady dining and seating area from which to overlook the extensive park to the woods beyond. An orchard and vegetable patch together with substantial chicken coop will delight anyone seeking the good life, whilst an above ground pool provides a nice spot to cool off in the summer months.

The property was completely rewired in 2015, and repairs were made to the roof. The house is double glazed throughout and is heated with a combination of Aerothermic heat pumps, wood burning stoves and gas central heating.
