Fully renovated Colombage Farmhouse in Gers, S W France with Pyrenees views.
This charming renovated 4 BR colombage farmhouse in the beautiful hilly Gers region of South West France is a real treasure with its stunning views of the Pyrenees. The house, although in a village and near all amenities, is located on a quiet lane and sits in its own land of 1.5ha, which includes a super garden with 100 trees, including walnut and cherry, fields and our own wood with resident deer and 2 bambis! The house faces south so has sunshine throughout the day making the rooms bright and airy/lumineuse. There is approximately 200m² of habitable space, all on the ground floor, but the attic/comble space, which is full height, could provide a further 100m² if converted. Potential for B & B (we are very near the Chemin de Saint Jacques pilgrimage route which passes through nearby Nogaro) or just more bedrooms with en suites. We have already put a staircase in place so the attic can be used for storage. We have renovated with a great deal of care. We are in the heart of the Armagnac making area although the local cave (3 kms) has all wines available. Only arable farming - maize and grapes grow around us, so no smelly animals or ducks anywhere near. There is room for living 'the good life' on our land - loads of space for chickens, goats, sheep or even a horse or donkeys. We already have a thriving vegetable garden. Very safe for dogs and cats, no close neighbours.
The double front doors enter into a wide hall which leads to the living room with ancient fireplace and large wood-burner, full length windows giving a panoramic view of the countryside and the Pyrénées. Glazed doors lead to steps down into the garden. There are four bedrooms, one has a large en-suite bathroom and one has a dressing room. The family bathroom has a shower and two sinks and there is a separate WC. The laundry room is plumbed for a washing machine and houses the hot water tank.
The huge farmhouse kitchen is every woman (and man's) dream, with high ceiling, exposed beams, reclaimed tile floor and doors out to the garden. The separate larder has much shelving for storage. There is also a good sized workshop which leads out to the covered parking/barn area. Two other storage sheds sit under the high barn.
The garden and large field are mostly lawn and there are dozens of trees and fruit trees. The abris/gazebo has been placed in the perfect spot to sit with a glass of wine and enjoy the uninterrupted views of the rolling hills and mountains.
