Light and airy 4-bedroom family home overlooking a lake in the countryside only 10 minutes from Nogaro, Gers, Gascony.
Off the spacious entrance hall you will find the family shower room, an office and the master bedroom with small ensuite. The bedroom has a French door to the rear patio and arched window/door opening onto the west-facing terrace and enjoys views over the lake. A door opens from the hall into the dining room, off which is the kitchen and lounge. The kitchen has light oak fitted cabinets and a white "Minerelle" worktop. It has a large door opening to the terrace. The lounge is large (approx 50m2), light and airy with large arched window/doors to each side and additional smaller windows. It has air conditioning and a wood burner. Upstairs are three double bedrooms and a smaller room, either store room or child's bedroom.
The west-facing terrace overlooks the adjacent lake and runs along the length of the house, wrapping round to the north side which provides a shady dining area. The terrace also has a covered seating area. The west side has a lavender hedge while the north side has a border filled with a variety of shrubs. The large double garage can be accessed from the rear patio. The garage holds 2 cars (or maybe 4 Smart cars!), has a workbench area and plenty of room to store garden furniture and equipment. To the rear is a 10m x 5.5m above-ground swimming pool. The garden is mainly grass with some mature trees.
Everyone who comes here for the first time and sees the lake says "Wow! What a lovely view!" We enjoy sitting up in bed with our cup of tea and watching the birds on the lake in the morning. However please note that the lake does not belong to the property - but you can enjoy the view, and also fish in it.
The house is only 10 minutes from Nogaro - shops, medical centre, cinema showing occasional English-language films, and the Paul Armagnac motor racing track. It is 15 minutes to the larger town of Aire sur l'Adour (a small local hospital with A&E) with access to the A65 Bordeaux-Pau motorway, and 30 minutes to Mont de Marsan with its new large shopping mall and station with future TGV link. The nearest airports with flights to the UK are Bordeaux (BA/Ryanair/Easyjet) and Biarritz (Ryanair, plus Easyjet and Flybe in summer). Toulouse is approx 2 hours. There is a 9-hole golf course within 30 minutes at Duhort Bachen, and 18-hole courses within 40 minutes at Mont de Marsan, Palanne (nr Marciac) and Eauze. You can be on the Atlantic beach within 1h30 via dual carriageway, and in the Pyrenees or in Spain within 2 hours.
NO AGENCIES PLEASE!
