A classic Gascon house from around 1880 that has been lovingly restored and modernised.
This includes the conversion of the attic space into a beautiful bedroom with a covered balcony and ensuite shower room, two further generous bedrooms with ensuite shower rooms, 4th bedroom/office, ground floor shower room, double glazing, reversable air-conditioning units, pellet burner, recent rendering of the external walls, new shutters, swimming pool, hot tub, modern kitchen diner with integrated appliances and a summer kitchen.
Arriving at the house the electric gates open and you follow the drive to park, just seeing glimpses of the swimming pool between the established plants in the main garden. Walk through the arch passing the hot tub on your way to reach the main entrance.
See further description below.
From the entrance hall, you can take the original winding staircase up to 3 of the bedrooms or enter the spacious living room, where you will find the original stone sink, fitted cupboards, a generously sized pellet burner that can be switched to heat the ground floor rooms and an archway leading through to the Kitchen. The kitchen includes integrated appliances, a dining table, double doors out to the summer kitchen and a doorway to the utility room with stairs leading to the 4th bedroom.
Is it the ideal location? The mountains are an hour's drive away, so close enough for skiing, hiking and cycling, but far enough away to avoid the worst of the weather.
For main shopping there is a choice of 3 towns all within 20 minutes, each with their own supermarket(s) and weekly market.
During the summer, many events are organised in the most beautiful villages with medieval architecture.
The jewel in the crown is the Marciac jazz and music festival, which attracts artists from all over the world for 3 weeks, closely followed by the 4-day country-western festival in Mirande, both 20 minutes away.
If you miss the city life or want more shopping, Tarbes and Auch are less than 40 minutes away.
