Property descriptionTucked away in a quiet corner of the Gers countryside sits this productive award winning Armagnac estate. The 15 hectares of carefully tended vines and manicured grounds surround the large Landaise style farmhouse, sold fully furnished, with attached outbuildings and recently constructed purpose built chai and pool. All the ingredients you need to continue to run this successful business is there as is the goodwill of the previous owner who does not live in France all the time. There is a lot of stock in oak barrels in one area of the chai and some younger stock in vats in another area of it are all included. The chai itself is an oak framed construction it is air conditioned thus providing an ambient temperature for the maturation process. There is a vast central area with large glass sliding doors, which could serve as an office or small shopping outlet if desired. An open tread oak staircase on three sides with viewing doors into the other areas takes you up to an impressive viewing room with windows on all sides. It has an oak floor and could be used for small functions or tasting evenings. There is a smaller area behind where bottles are stored and doors to either side which lead to the storage and working areas. A small corridor leads to a shower and toilet for the workers and a cleaning store and another large door leads out to the vineyard. The older outbuildings deal with the earlier part of the production process: it is where the harvest is brought in and the grapes are pressed. There is also garaging for the cars. The house itself has been extensively and sympathetically renovated by the current owners to provide a comfortable family home. The original features have been retained and enhanced by its furnishings. It is bright and airy with a nice flow throughout and all the conveniences of a modern lifestyle. The original double wooden doors open to a hallway with its terracotta tiles and wooden stair. The double sized lounge has colombage along one wall, a traditional large open fireplace with space on either side for the storage of logs on another and doors at the end to the pool area . To the other is the formal dining room with colombage too. A corridor leads to an office or bedroom and behind it is a shower room and towards the back of the house a large fitted kitchen with a restored bread oven. Off the kitchen is a utility room. There is ample space to have an informal dining area if required. There is a step down to another room currently used for breakfast and this in turn opens to a large room suitable for a variety of purposes with a wall of windows and doors to a courtyard with a fountain. An insulated racked wine store is at one end and a door through to the outbuildings. Upstairs there is an open plan central library area with a Juliette balcony. To one side is the good sized master suite with its fitted dressing room and luxurious bathroom with separate shower and washbasin sitting on a custom made unit.
