Property Description

Set on a promontory, to the front of a tiny hamlet, the property has a dramatic outlook, with 180-degree views over descending parkland to a backdrop of cedar and oak woods. In clear conditions the Pyrenees can be seen on the southern horizon. The well-maintained hamlet is one of the smallest villages in the Gers with a population of 45 and with occasional cultural events in the restored church.



Entrance to the property is via a gated archway set across a circular lawn from the main building. The main, east façade has a perfect symmetry, with three arched doorways below an imposing stone pediment bearing the coat of arms of the Marquis of Mauleon, royal guard of Louis XVI. The current ownership extends back 30 years.



With multiple windows and lofty ceiling heights approaching 4 metres, the accommodation is bathed in light with numerous points of access to the gardens and grounds. Original details in perfect order include some exceptional plaster mouldings, marble or timber fireplaces in nearly every room, timber wainscoting and deep windows with internal shutters. Richly decorated throughout with bright wall papers and fabrics, counterbalanced by muted paint colours and pattern-laid terra cotta tile or period timber floors.





The grand entrance hall has double doorways leading off to the four main reception rooms, a television, games room and an imposing country kitchen with ancillary service rooms. A fine staircase leads to a harmonious central landing with a total of 4 suites, 2 further bedrooms and family bathroom. An attic wing of former staff rooms has potential to create an apartment or further bedrooms.



Terraces to the south and west have magnificent views and lead through a formal garden towards a large round pond. A kitchen garden to the north has yew, bow and lavender parterres framing the vegetable and flower gardens. A 19m swimming pool and gazebo summer house make a delightful summer entertaining area.



The outbuildings, 50m in length and forming 1/5 of a circle are an extraordinary feature and which effectively separate the property from the hamlet. Beyond the landscaped and gardened areas the estate is down to pasture with fenced horse paddocks and the southern boundary delimited by a spectacular curtain of cedars and oak woods.



NB The surrounding agricultural estate comprising 150 hectares of high grade arable land producing mainly wheat and sunflowers is available by separate negotiation.
