Price € 995000
Vic Fezensac, Gers, Midi Pyrenees, SW France
A classic country house, extended in the 19C with a northern France influence, with light-filled rooms and rich in period details including a pretty turning staircase, plaster mouldings, marble fireplaces and fitted library. The property is equally suitable as a holiday or permanent home. Approached through gates and by a treelined driveway, the front faÃ§ade has an immense appeal and is particularly attractive when floodlit at night. The accommodation has an easy flow with the main salon and dining room either side of a central hallway with a particularly pretty staircase. A library wing with multiple windows and top floor, with mansard roof, were added in 1870s. A secondary entrance gives access to the kitchen and a large bureau, which doubles as a billiards room. The master suite has a study area, two dressing rooms, main bedroom and bathroom. The principal guest suite is entirely independent with its own stair, lofty beamed ceiling, kitchenette, bathroom and roof terrace. Four further bedrooms and three bathrooms. Floors are in pine boards or matting and with patterned encaustic tiles in the hall. Timberwork is in a pleasing eau-de-nil shade and bathrooms are in white throughout. In 2001, the property was the subject of a professional restoration, including all electrical, plumbing and heating installations and bathroom fittings. A new owner should budget for redecorating the property and for minor running repairs now due. DPE rating: D. Outside, a rear terrace, 20x7 metres, with an ancient balustrade and adjoining the kitchen, is the perfect outdoor entertaining area. Beyond, a lawn the size of a small cricket field, is ideal for youngstersâ€™ games. Approximately 3 hectares in all with open views over a patchwork of unspoilt countryside.
