Located in a beautiful rural environment near Fleurance in the Gers, and approached via a quiet country lane, the ensemble comprises the château of some 530m2 on two floors, the guest barn of some 400m2, a large barn to renovate, heated swimming pool and stone pool house and a ruined 19th century chapel.
The château and guest barn have been entirely re-structured under the supervision of a respected London architect to create a highly contemporary residence within the original shell. Huge living spaces, polished concrete floors throughout, under floor gas fired central heating, high ceilings, a multitude of French windows making the home very light, state of the art steel and glass shower rooms, professional kitchen and a vaulted banqueting hall giving out onto the sunny pool terrace.
Château: Grand, open plan salon with high ceiling, projector wall, huge open fireplace and French windows to the gardens. The music room also leads out to the terraces. There is a small dining room or library with fireplace and polished concrete floors. Vaulted banqueting hall for up to 80 people. Fully equipped kitchen and prep area. Cloakrooms.
The 11m x 4m heated salt water swimming pool with safety shutters and pool house benefits from generous sunny terraces. An impressive modern staircase leads to the first floor landing. Here we have six spacious bedroom suites (the largest being 70m2 with its own living area) all with country views and all with state of the art en suite glass and steel shower rooms. The roof has been renovated and insulated. There is a large cellar/boiler room.
Guest barn: Across the courtyard from the château is a re-built stone and wood barn offering a spacious living/dining room with covered dining terrace, professional kitchen, cloakrooms, two ground floor en suite bedrooms. Laundry room. Upstairs are five en suite double bedrooms all with views over the countryside.
Large stone barn: a project awaiting the new owners subject to planning.
Chapel: A 19th century building in need of total renovation.
The château is surrounded by 32 acres of which 12 are arable land on an annual farming tenancy, and the remaining 20 are woodland and pasture. A truly idyllic environment. The property has a modern drainage system to standards. All utilities are new.
This stunning property will appeal to a discerning clientele who will appreciate the impact of this contemporary style in such a peaceful environment.
