Gascony Property For Sale: Saint Clar,
Price € 890000
Saint Clar, Gers, Midi Pyrenees
Built in stone and mellow brick the house is a museum-piece of 18th century craftsmanship, beautifully reworked with 21st century comfort and technology. Square in shape the room layout is eminently practical. The location beside the hamlet provides security and a sense of community without compromising privacy. From the entrance hall a broad stair rises through a handsome arch to a 17-metre upper hallway with the principal reception rooms and bedroom suites â€˜piano nobileâ€™ and with a ceiling height of 3.5-metres. Period features include marble or carved timber fireplaces, fine terracotta floors and small-paned windows. Leading from the upper kitchen and living room is an elevated terrace with stone steps down to a covered dining area, ideal for entertaining in high summer. On the ground floor are two further bedrooms with side entrance as a potential independent apartment, office, library, well-appointed second kitchen, boiler room, laundry and wine cellar. Outside a spacious open barn with pebbled base provides parking for half a dozen vehicles or an atmospheric party venue. The mature grounds have shade from centenarian trees and beyond the swimming pool, long pastoral views West.
