But not any hunting lodge. This one was given for use to the Governor of Albret by the Black Prince during 100 years war. It has certainly stood the test of time and stands beautifully isolated close to the village of Mézin in the south west of the Lot et Garonne.
The area is a stones throw from the departments of Gers and Landes so there is a wonderful mix of influences to enjoy.
A unique property in a beautiful setting offering spacious and comfortable living.
The house offers a living space of 175² comprising:
Living room with magnificent fireplace
Through to the kitchen. Off the kitchen is a large terrace for dining and secondary staircase stairs outside.
Also on this level are three bedrooms (one with ensuite), and a second shower room as well as a separate wc.
This floor has been extensively but not completely renovated. At the top of the stairs the door facing you takes you into a huge attic space that was intended as a fifth bedroom. To the left at the top of the stairs a door leads to 3 more rooms one of which is a completed bedroom with ensuite shower room.
Beneath the house the entire footprint comprises 3 cellars and wine cave.
Outside the grounds are 13192m² or 3.11 acres and spread over two clear levels. A gentle walk to the lower area leads you to the riverside which meanders the edge of the property.
At the end of the pathway a water source appears in a tiny stone cave with little pond in front of it.
This water is used in two ways:
1. a pump is connected and brings water to other parts of the garden, and
2 a large pond (35 x 5) has been dug out. Water from the source feeds the pond directly at one and evacuates at the other end directly into the river. The pond is deeper at one end than the other and was created for swimming.
The house has been almost entirely renovated in the last few years. All materials and insulation used are of the highest possible quality.
Insulation: The house is as insulated as any can possibly be including walls, windows and roof spaces. The only wall of the house that doesn’t have double insulation is the south facing wall. Insulation between the cellars and ground floor of the house is 35cm thickness polstyrene. All windows are double glazed and external doors (except the kitchen which is double glazed are 2 inch oak. The roof spaces are all insulated with polystyrene and then wood finish.
Heat/cooling: The ground floor of the house is equipped with and air to water under floor heating/cooling system. The system also powers the water boiler (300L) located in one of the loft rooms. All of the shower rooms are equipped with electric towel radiators.
