France Gers: Charming Rural Dwelling

St ORENS POUY-PETIT 32100, France

Property Description

CHARMING "maison de caractère" (house in regional style) + studio: 2 homes on the same premise!
With stunning views on the Gascony plains and the Pyrenees

Situated at the edge of St Orens Pouy-Petit ( 8 km from Condom), a small village on a rocky outcrop among the rolling hills of the Gascony plain in the Département du Gers, region Midi Pyrenées, with a marvelous view southwards and the Pyrenees chain at the horizon, This old solid (walls up to 1,8 m in thickness!) building in yellow rockstone is erected around a private courtyard.
The fact of the rocky underground is visible everywhere: almost all rooms are separated by one or more steps. So no good idea for a wheelchair, but it adds to the charm!!!

The ”house” first:
on “ground level” (let us suggest it is the courtyard) : a flight of steps (main entrance) leads to a roomy “veranda”, surrounded by windows on 3 sides (8 double, 1 single,but down to the floor), but clearly within the building, with a solid tile roof, a splendid place for “siesta”, shielded from the midday sun, with never boring views
next: one step DOWN: the kitchen: well equipped,well insulated against the midday sun (thickness of the wall: 1,8m : the refrigerator is positioned in a recess, hewn into it!), with breakfast corner for 4,
connecting to a bedroom annex complete bathroom with bath, bidet, lavabo and toilet
next: (2 steps DOWN): a dwelling room/dining room going out directly (NO STEP this time!) to the courtyard, vineclad, so giving shade, and to a large Jacuzzi (seats 5!)
upstairs: accessible from the outside (the courtyard) or via the dwelling room. A staircase leads to an angled corridor with 2 bedrooms (and provision for a 3rd!), of which the larger has a separate bathroom with shower, toilet and lavabo.
Left at the entrance to the courtyard (in fact: underneath the veranda), with its own terrace - shadow provided by vines! - is a second dwelling: a very functional studio with living room/installed kitchen and – one step down! - a large bedroom with a fully equipped bathroom with modern shower with jets, toilet and lavabo.
This studio is fully independent, only sharing the common access via the courtyard, but also to be reached via a miller’s stair situated in the CHAI (with original winepress still in situ!!!)
This chai can be used as a 2nd garage, for the description ends with the main garage, situated under the studio, but fully autonomous, as it is only accessible from the street
Water and electricity throughout,
Cooking on gas & electricity, chimneys in veranda, kitchen and studio with fuel oil stoves, electricity for heating installed, deconnected , but easily reinstated, opportunity for heating on natural gas.
