A delightful and fully renovated old stone house with lovely views and private pool set in the heart of the Gers in Gascony near the tiny village of St Leonard. Situated just 4km from the village of St Clar which has small shops, supermarket etc and 14km from the small town of Fleurence the property is also well placed to reach the historic and cultural towns of Lectoure and Condom.
The private entrance driveway leads into the large grounds with ample covered parking for two cars and an outdoor barbecue area alongside. To the right the garden is mainly laid to lawn with a good selection of trees, including olive trees, and an array of brightly coloured pot plants. The 10m x 5m salt water pool has an electrically operated dome cover with jacuzzi section and « contra current » jets. A large sun bathing terrace surrounds the pool which has an outside shower and, at the far end, an immense covered dining terrace and boules court overlooking the peaceful countryside views. A wishing well, safely secured, nestles to one side of the garden. A further covered dining terrace may be found at the end of the house leading directly into the well-equipped kitchen/breakfast room with solid oak units, large fridge/freezer, dishwasher, electric hob and oven, and large dining table.
From the kitchen a small tiled hallway leads to a laundry room with washing machine and dryer, a separate WC and a large fully-tiled bathroom with double vanity unit, large walk-in shower and a bath with further shower.
Also on the ground floor is a good sized bedroom with 1.6m bed, ample storage and hanging for clothes and wooden flooring in addition to the very large tiled sitting/dining room with comfortable sofa and armchairs, wide screen TV with English and French speaking channels, DVD and music system.
Returning to the kitchen a wooden turned staircase leads up to the first floor where there are two bedrooms - one twin and one double - with a « Jack and Jill » shared bathroom between them (large shower, basin and WC).
All in all a spacious, well equipped house set in a tranquil environment with lovely countryside views yet within easy driving distance of all amenities.
The Heart of Gascony
Gascony refers to ancient territories in South-West France that ceased to exist after the French Revolution and cannot be found on modern day maps. The Duchy of Gascony was formed in 852 and joined with Aquitaine in 1036. It was subjected to English rule in the 12C for some 300 years and many Bastide and walled towns built during this time can still be seen today. Although the region of Gascony does not officially exist now, local people still proudly proclaim to be "Vrai Gascons".
