Known as the Jewel of Les Landes, Labastide D'Armagnac draws admirers from across the globe with it's pretty square and authentic French lifestyle. In pride of place lies this stunning half timbered 'Hotel Particulier', the views from which are said to have inspired Henri the IV to create the Place de Vosges in Paris when he stayed here as a guest in the 1500's.
Whilst the origins of the property go back as far as the 14th century, with later Baroque additions, the current owners have spared no expense working with a well respected architect to gently awaken this historic home and bring it up to current comforts. From the LaCornue kitchen to a luxurious bathroom, stunning sitting room and library to the delightful Orangery style dining / reception room and private roof terrace, there is so much to love about this unique residence.
The property has everything you need for a perfect French home or holiday retreat. Stepping out of the front door takes you straight to excellent restaurants, wonderful cafés and a number of artisan boutiques. Only 30 minutes from the train station at Mont de Marsan, 1hr25 from Bordeaux airport, and situated halfway between the spectacular beaches of the Atlantic Ocean and Ski Slopes of the Pyrenees, there is no shortage of access to good food, vinyards and colourful markets.
Set over two floors with an additional Attic space running the length of the property, the ground floor is dedicated to fine cuisine and good dining. Measuring an impressive 52m², one side is flanked entirely with prestigious LaCornue units, lending gastronomic luxury to the French lifestyle. To the other side of the room, a good sized dining table holds host to numerous memorable suppers and shared moments.
Up the winding staircase, one encounters a glorious double length sitting room and library with panneled glass windows tipping the eye beyond fresh geraniums to the square and its 13th century church beyond. A wood panneled Orangery inspired third reception room leads out through glass doors to a sheltered roof terrace flanked with olive trees and potted plants. Two stunning bedrooms, packed with authentic features, a good sized shower room and luxurious bathroom complete the ensemble. To the East of the property lies a third guest bedroom and WC, accessed via it's own front door. A large garden hidden behind an ancient wall and home to an independent armagnac barn is found across the road from the property and could lend itself to further development into a guest cottage and pool area.
If you are looking for a slice of true French lifestyle, a place to simply unpack your bags and step outside to collect a baguette and steaming café au lait, do not miss this rare chance to snap up this stunning home. Viewing highly reccomended.
