ThIs light and airy level includes a large open-plan salon and kitchen, a laundry room/pantry, a cloakroom, and a WC. At the rear of the home are two double-glazed doors that lead to the outdoor courtyard. Two climitisation units have been installed for heating, cooling, and dehumidification.

Vestibule Entrance (3.2 m2)
You enter the home through double front doors that lead into an enclosed vestibule with Pyrenean marble floors. A second set of double-glazed doors serves as a climate barrier and entrance into the main home. It houses a centralized tableau for all electrical, satellite/cable television, and CAT-5 ethernet functions.

Large Open-Plan Salon and Kitchen (41.5 m2)
The ground floor offers a large open-plan salon and gourmet kitchen. New ceramic tile (2021) has been installed, but the original historic Pyrenean marble path has been retained. The salon has been fitted with an environmentally green pellet stove insert in the original fireplace. The room is accented by floor-to-ceiling original cabinetry with ornamental plaster reliefs and neoclassical details. Three ornamental plaster faces peer down from above the fireplace (we think the likenesses of the family who originally built the home!). The salon is lit by a large chandelier hung from a ceiling rose above.

The kitchen was designed in 2021 with an enormous French oak centre island housing a copper sink, dishwasher, microwave, and plenty of drawers fitted with custom storage. Above the centre island are two crystal and copper light fixtures that anchor the room.

The kitchen includes an ardoise gray 110cm Falcon Elise (made by Rangemaster) double oven with separate broiler and warming drawer with an induction cooktop (4,900 euros), a fitted exhaust system, and an American-style side-by-side refrigerator. The original working wood burning fireplace serves as a beautiful backdrop for the kitchen. The kitchen is wired for satellite/cable television, and CAT-5 ethernet (for television/internet).

Cloakroom (9.8 m2)
This room has new ceramic tile flooring that flows in from the salon to unify the space. It is the perfect place to store winter coats/boots, bicycles, and skis when coming in from the cold. It has a closed fireplace and a crystal chandelier.

WC (2.6 m2)
Off the cloakroom is a newly designed and installed WC with a wash basin, new tiled floor, new toilet, and an ambient wall heater.

At the rear of the ground floor is a grand staircase with curved banisters and original railings that match those found in the village Mairie. The staircase is lit by fixtures on both upper floor landings and an enormous window.

Courtyard (43 m2)
The courtyard is a flexible space serving as a potted herb garden, three-season dining area, and hot tub. The tall privacy wall is fitted with windows that allow for views of the Garonne River. A watertight metal door provides access to the River.

FIRST FLOOR

The first floor consists of a landing, three principal rooms that could all serve as bedrooms, and a master bathroom. The master bathroom has new ceramic tile and the other rooms have 13mm French ash planks that were milled locally and installed by an artisan.

The three principal rooms have been wired for satellite/cable television, and CAT-5 ethernet (for television/internet) and have climitisation for heating, cooling, and dehumidification. The landing and the three principal rooms have panelling and picture rails installed to house newly renovated electrical systems.

Landing (8.2 m2)
The landing receives light from an enormous window at the rear of the home and a lantern-style light fixture that works well with the age and style of the home.

Master Bedroom (21.6 m2)
The master bedroom has original floor-to-ceiling cabinetry fitted with shelves for extra hanging and folding storage that surrounds a closed fireplace with ornamental plaster details. The plaster work on the mantle bears the initials of a family who once called this home. The other three walls have panelling and picture rails. Ceiling-height, double-glazed windows offer a view of the village and the nearby chateau. A grand chandelier lights the space.

Master Dressing Area (2.7 m2)
Making the most of space, an old small bathroom has been renovated as a dressing area with fitted drawers, shelving, and hanging storage.

Master Bathroom (12.3 m2)
Once an old kitchen, the master bath is large and luxurious. It has a beautiful white clawfoot bathtub with chrome lion’s feet situated under ceiling-height, double-glazed windows overlooking the Garonne River, a toilet, a large walk-in rain shower, and double sinks housed in a salvaged antique sideboard that was selected to highlight the neoclassical details of the home. The bathroom is fitted with high-end chrome retro fixtures, ornate mirrors, beautiful light fixtures, and recessed ceiling lighting. A large retro ardoise gray wall heater completes the room and warm the space wonderfully.

Art Studio (13.4 m´2)
The art studio receives a lot of natural light through a large ceiling-height, double-glazed window and glass double-glazed door that leads onto an upper terrace. It has a closed fireplace with ornamental plaster details, an original cupboard, and panelling and picture rails. This room is lit by a crystal chandelier beneath a ceiling rose.

Library (18.3 m2)
The library is a beautifully sunlit room with lovely ornamental plaster details reminiscent of the neoclassical era, floor-to-ceiling original cabinetry, a closed fireplace, two ceiling-height double-glazed windows, panelling and picture rails, and a dramatic crystal chandelier.

First Floor Terrace (15.4 m2)
The sunny first floor terrace overlooks the Garonne River and the beautiful Pyrenees Mountains.

The views are unparalleled. In spring and summer, the view is verdant and lush. In Autumn, the hills and mountains are a riotous combination of oranges, reds, and yellows. In winter, there are snow-covered landscapes and dramatic mountain peaks.

A barbecue is cleverly connected to the chimney below. New lighting and electrical outlets have been installed. The fitted spiral staircase accesses the courtyard below.

SECOND FLOOR

The second floor offers a landing, office, two guest rooms, a bathroom, a WC, and attic access. With the exception of the bathroom and WC, which has newly installed ceramic tile, the flooring is newly installed 13mm French ash planks milled locally and installed by an artisan.

The three rooms on this floor are wired for satellite/cable television, and CAT-5 ethernet (for television/internet) and have climitisation for heating, cooling, and dehumidification. All rooms on the second floor benefit from added insulation and newly surfaced walls.

Landing (7.4 m2)
The landing at the top of the staircase receives light from an enormous window at the rear of the home and an additional light fixture.

Office (17.5 m2)
To the right of the top of the staircase is an office. It has a small window overlooking the Garonne with views of the Pyrenees.

Guest Bedroom 1 (23.7 m2)
This bedroom is very large, offers a double-glazed window, and views overlooking the village and chateau.

Guest Bedroom 2 (19.6 m2)
This bedroom is also large, offers a double-glazed window with views to the south.

Bathroom (6.5 m2)

WC (1.8 m2)

It has original stone walls at either end, newly installed insulation, and four new Velux windows for light and air circulation.
