Luxury country house for sale - exclusive to Maxwell-Baynes Real Estate. If combining privacy, quiet and extraordinary views are your target this renovated farmhouse is a perfect match. For those who have researched the French South West for a while, Le Gers is known as one of the most sought after country locations. The departmental capital is Auch, located 30 minutes drive from this property while Toulouse international airport is 45 minutes. Beautifully renovated and situated on an elevated position, the residence offers unobstructed views for miles over the French countryside and beyond to the Pyrenees and Spain on the horizon. When we ask the current owners to describe what they love about this home they speak of entertaining their guests, the fresh clean air, the views, the wildlife, clear skies and bright star-lit nights in total calm.
The Main Residence
The residence while unpretentious is luxuriously appointed and presented with a very comfortable well thought out floor plan. Over 560m2 of floor space has been carefully designed to provide a sense of comfort with rooms connecting comfortably as one moves through the ground floor. Although spacious with 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, the residence does not feel big and the eye is constantly drawn to the exposed beams, ancient brick and floor tile and generous use of solid French oak floors. The renovation has taken great care to make the most of original stone and wood features with the 200 bottle subterranean wine cellar being of particular note.
The Pyrenees mountain range provides a backdrop to the unobstructed views over rolling hills and for ski-lovers the mountain ski resorts can be reached in 90 minutes. The area within which the house is located is so influenced by the Pyrenees that its drinking water is supplied from the Barousse source in the mountains.
The current owners speak of the joy of having outstanding exterior spaces for entertaining their family and friends. A terrace looking south to the mountains over a small pond, an "al-fresco" covered bbq area and a large paved patio joining the kitchen and dining rooms offer numerous ways to make the most of the extraordinary setting. Guests can then be well accommodated in one of the comfortable guest bedrooms.
