Property Overview


For Sale

Is it the Centennial Oak trees and trailing wisteria, the gentle stone and half timbered walls or the way the evening sunlight sweeps through the rooms bathing all in a golden glow that makes this home such a magical place to enjoy ?

At 237m² of living space, this pretty cottage is packed with character details and charm. A sitting room with large fireplace, library / snug, dining room and large conservatory provide ample comfortable space to spread out and relax. A fitted kitchen, shower room / WC and downstairs bedroom complete the ensemble on the ground floor. Above, one finds a second large bedroom, a bathroom / WC and a generous study measuring 22m², that could easily be used as a third double bedroom.

Across the little courtyard, a stone and timber barn has been converted into a private loft bedroom with bathroom and independent sitting room.

To fully enjoy the good life, a working bread oven, private grape vines and heated swimming pool offer additional attractions.

The property is situated in the centre of its 6.5 HA and has absolutely no viz a viz. Its immediate privacy however does not imply seclusion. The nearest town of Villeneuve de Marsan is just 1 km from the cottage and easily accessible by bike. The prefecture town of Mont de Marsan can be reached in around 25 minutes and offers regular daily trains to Bordeaux.
