Country House In Southern Gers With Stunning Pyrenees Views, Open Barn, Pool And 1.6 Hectares Of South Facing Land
A truly spectacular setting for this beautiful property which has been renovated by an interior designer and has a short history of lucrative rentals. With the chain of the Pyrenees to the south dominating the view with the local church spires the only landmarks which merit mention, the property really has a magical setting. Offering spacious accommodation over two floors and with potential to further tailor the accommodation to the next owners needs, the feeling is relaxed rural chic.Blending the natural materials of the original building with the modern materials available today the interiors are a careful blend of textures and light. With the rough textures of the original roof beams and clay bricks contrasting with the polished cement floors and clean lines of the new walls and white washed ceilings, a feast for the senses on various levels.The property has been cleverly reconfigured with the original stone farmhouse to the east with the attached barn to the west which has been integrated and converted to offer the large living space and mezzanine bedrooms. The original farmhouse contains the entrance hallway, sitting room/snug and the master bedroom suite above. The walls have been mostly renovated but where possible left original, showing the straw and mud bricks, and stone used in the original build. The open plan area has beautiful exposed beams and original walls which have been partially clad to give clean white walls to the lower sections, a great backdrop for furniture and objects.The land which is to the south is gently sloping pasture. The open barn sits to the east and is used for storage (there is a metal transport container included which is used as secure storage), and could possibly be further developed given the correct authorisations.The main house ground floor- Entrance hallway with terracotta tiled floor and partially rendered stone walls, circular staircase in steel.Snug/living room with large fireplace fitted with wood burner, windows east and south. The open plan living room with double height ceiling, exposed beams, partially exposed stone walls and polished cement floor. There are two sets of double doors, one opening south to the garden and one south to the covered terrace. The covered terrace area has a concrete floor and a stone wall to the west.The kitchen area has been intentionally kept minimal with the utility area in the bathroom. The ground floor bathroom has wooden open storage unit, w.c. sink and shower.1st floor- The circular staircase in the hallway takes you up to the master bedroom suite, a truly luxurious space with a wonderful outlook over the Pyrenees and stunning views from the bed and the bath! The second staircase in the living room is a simple wooden one taking you up to a mezzanine sleeping area, this has been kept open plan but could be turned into separate bedrooms if required.A exceptional property of simple style and taste in a wonderful setting in SW France.
