In the heart of the Gers countryside, up a long sweeping driveway, sits this substantial property surrounded by its extensive lawns and woods. Its pretty tranquil setting provides private areas for the main house, the 3-bedroom chartreuse and the priest's apartment. A covered courtyard overlooking the pool offers a large sitting area, a summer kitchen and a mezzanine area currently used as a gym. There are further areas which could be developed to provide further accommodation if wished.

The main house-
The ivy clad main house has been renovated with taste and retains some original features while providing an easy flowing layout designed for modern living. It is full of light with doors out to patios overlooking the gardens.
The main entrance opens on to a wide tiled hall with a wooden stair to the bedrooms.
To the left is the sitting room which has a large fireplace with wood burner. A door leads through to a large dining room/family room open plan to a fully fitted kitchen with built in appliances. There is a fitted utility room housing the washing machine, sink etc.
To the right there is a further large living area used as a library/study.
On the half landing, there is a cloakroom with sink and WC. The upstairs landing serves three good sized ensuite bedrooms overlooking the gardens or internal courtyard. There is ample storage throughout.

The Chartreuse/ Guest house can be accessed from the main house or from the internal courtyard.
It comprises a large fully fitted kitchen/dining room to the rear and a sitting room to the front.
There are three bedrooms, one ensuite and a family bathroom serving the other two.
Outside, it has its own covered dining area with barbecue and behind it a covered seating area and a large lawn
A private entrance makes this a good option for letting out. Parking area.

Studio-At the far end of the house with an entrance to the front is a small apartment/studio with a fitted kitchen and a modern shower room. An undeveloped space adjacent could extend this into a sitting area with an feature arced ceiling.

Grounds-Off the internal courtyard with its shrubs and pond is a door leading through to the pool and its terraces and covered area. There are sunbathing areas as well as shade and plenty of colour provided by planted areas and a gate out to the side lawns. There is scope to develop areas adjacent to this further.

The grounds though extensive are mostly laid to lawn with shrubs and trees that can be fairly easily maintained. There is an orchard with abundant fruit trees. The woodland around the perimeter has paths for walking the land with one in particular, "West Point", a favourite place for watching sunsets over the countryside.
