C18th manor dating to medieval times.
A most impressive manor house, mostly 18th century but dating back to medieval times, set up high on the edge of a small village with gardens, courtyard and field in front, with far reaching views, near Marmande, Lot et Garonne. The village manor house now offers exceptionally spacious 8 bedroom accommodation plus a studio and guardian’s apartment, and a swimming pool and an open outlook to countryside. An ideal home for a large family or indeed to run as an up market bed and breakfast business, as have the current owners. Located between Agen and Bordeaux with Bordeaux airport just 60 minutes. Also Toulouse and Bergerac. Set on the very edge of a small village, in an elevated position and with panoramic views to the countryside. Parking outside, or drive in through the ancient gatehouse to park in the courtyard. This characterful manor house has been fully renovated with taste to retain the original feel of this 18th century home.

To the left are the living room (30m2) with fireplace, high ceiling, terracotta and oak floor, leading to the large salon (40m2) with high ceiling, open fireplace, terracotta and wood floor.

In an enclosure, the 12m x 6m swimming pool with ample sunny terraces, a jacuzzi and an old stone well. Alongside the pool is a self contained guest studio (60m2) with open plan living/bedroom/kitchen area and separate shower room. To the rear of the house is an enclosed courtyard with old bread oven, prune oven, wine cellar. The ancient gatehouse has been re-roofed and would be an ideal project to create a small gite (subject to planning permission). On the end of the house, in what used to be the lookout tower, is an apartment (80m2) comprising a spacious living/kitchen, large double bedroom and bathroom. Currently used for a guardian, this too could be let for holidays.
