Full Description

ABSOLUTELY MUST BE VIEWED TO FULLY APPRECIATE THIS UNIQUE PROPERTY.

This elegant 18th century, south facing, 5 bedroomed Gascon Farmhouse has been fully renovated to an excellent standard and features high ceilings and exposed beams throughout. An extensive covered Terrace runs the full width of the Main house and gives access to the Entrance hall plus the 2, south facing , principal Reception rooms each of which has a fully fitted Kitchen/Diner to the rear. The spacious Entrance hall is split level and in addition to the Reception rooms leads to a utility room at the rear.

It also contains a majestic staircase in oak which gives direct access to all of the first- floor accommodation.

At the first-floor level there are 2 major Bedrooms with views South to the Pyrenees and each has the benefit of a full en-suite Bathroom. There are 3 further Bedrooms all with views over open countryside and sharing a family Shower Room.

In addition, the property has 2 independent 2-bedroom Cottages which can be used for letting/extended family. These offer the possibilty of a substantial income and the current owners have let them successfully for the last 22 years.

In addition, there is a substantial freestanding Barn which can be used as a Garage and, at one end of the Main house there is a partially completed 2-storey extension which could be used to create leisure/craft space or accommodation for letting/family if required.

The 13m x 8m Pool has a chlorine free water treatment system and is located to the rear of the Cottages in a secluded sunny area with extensive paving all round.

The grounds amount to some 4700m2 and contain a good mix of trees, shrubs, flower beds, grassed areas and a separate gravelled parking area for 8 cars.

The property is set in an elevated country location with uninterrupted views to the Pyrenees and is approached via a short cul-de-sac off a little country lane between the 2 villages which form the Commune.

It is less than 5 minutes from Masseube, an active market town with all facilities including, bakers , supermarket, grocer, hairdressers, banks, doctors, garages, all levels of schools , post office , cinema , bars , restaurants , chemist , newsagent , garden centre, public swimming pool and tennis courts, weekly market and vets .

The property is located close to the very heart of the beautiful Gers region of Gascony. As well as being particularly noted for its rich cuisine and fine wines, the region is also the centre for distilling Armagnac, the "Brandy of Gascony" and there are many small "degustations".

The whole area is steeped in history with many small Bastides (fortified towns/villages) and other interesting places to visit.

Worth a mention are Auch, the ancient capital of Gascony and birthplace of musketeer D'Artagnan, with its magnificent 500 year old cathedral. Also, Marciac, a pretty town famous for its International Jazz Festival in August but, really, the choice is endless.

For more extensive day trips - Lourdes, Toulouse, Pau, Spain, the Pyrenees and the Atlantic coast are all within 1 to 2 hours easy drive and are well worth the effort.

Markets are held in Masseube on Tuesday mornings and there are others in the surrounding villages or towns on virtually every day of the week.

Notwithstanding the un-spoilt nature of the area, you will find that the Gascons are very friendly and offer a warm welcome to all visitors and newcomers so making your choice of location even more enjoyable and rewarding.

If you tire of just soaking up the ambiance at Au Broca, there is much to do in the area with bars, restaurants, lakes, skiing, sailing, fishing, and horse riding all close by. Tennis is available in Esclassan and there are a number of excellent golf courses nearby.
