Equidistant from Bordeaux and Toulouse – on the borders of the French departments of Lot-et-Garonne and Gers – as well as the Albret and Armagnac regions. Near to two subprefectures: Nérac and Condom, tourist and historic meccas.
Agen, the Prefecture of the French department of Lot-et-Garonne, is but 25 minutes away. It has a railway station, with 190-minute links to Paris via TGV train, and an airport, with 3 return, 80-minute flights to Paris-Orly per day. The region has managed to preserve its tourist trade whilst remaining authentic. The regions of Albret, Gascony and Armagnac all suggest a certain quality of life: a reputation far from being lost!
The property is accessed via a narrow, little used country lane, followed by a short driveway lined with old mulberry trees.
At the end is a semi-circular arched, stone gateway, supported on either side by a low wall connecting two dwellings, and also defining the perimeters of an inner courtyard.
Facing one another are a large luxurious home, flanked by a former dovecote, and an outbuilding which has been converted into a guest house.
Set in twelve or so hectares, the buildings are surrounded by wooded parklands including a variety of species with fruit trees as well as lime, plane, cedar, redwood and hazelnut trees.
There is a swimming pool with a pool-house in the garden to the rear of the house on the south side.
The large, luxurious home
The main house spans two floors and is extended at its ends via a lean-to building as well as a second construction which links up with the former dovecote. The gable roofs feature Roman tiles.
This tastefully decorated house is warm and welcoming as well as comfortable.
The dovecote tower
The 2-storey, dovecote tower, spanning a floor surface area of 25 m², is located on the far west side of the kitchen and the children’s television room. Awaiting complete conversion, it currently does not communicate with the rest of the house.
The caretaker’s accommodation and garages
On the north side, facing the large, luxurious home, the service quarters form a two-storey building topped with a Roman tile roof.
This comprises a dwelling (approx. 107 m²) that is currently occupied by the caretakers, a garage, a studio flat and various storage areas.
The farm shed
Set a little way away, a 200 m² farm shed that cannot be seen from the main house completes the property.
This haven of peace is ideal for nature lovers. There is no lack of leisure, cultural and sporting activities for all ages. The fields and the oak woods surrounding the residence are an unlimited source for hiking or pony trekking, not forgetting mushroom picking!
This is obviously a real family home and a perfect place to spend holidays. The two separate dwellings provide enormous potential: rental possibilities, caretakers, a holiday home, accommodation for guests or domestic staff, or even, a residence for elderly parents (advantage of proximity, without the disadvantages of cohabitation).
Far from any nuisances, this character property has extension possibilities, notably through the conversion of the large dovecote tower which is currently not in use.
