Prestige Property For Sale South West France | Lot-et-Garonne,
Seymour-James is pleased to announce a prestige property for sale in Lot-et-Garonne, South West France – circa 975,000 euros - a unique property in 2 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens with a recorded history and of notable importance to the architectural heritage of South West France.
With substantial living areas of more than 600 square metres; this 6-bedroom property for sale in South West France, possesses wonderful architectural features and ornate décor throughout. It is certainly reminiscent of the Napoleonic III era and intended to be so. The mansion however was built in 1905 during “La belle Epoque” for a rich entrepreneur, at a time when Lot-et-Garonne was bustling with “cork factories”, saw mills and flour mills. The owner spared no amount of money on the construction of this superb property and this can still be appreciated and seen throughout.
The property was conceived and the construction supervised by the famous architect (Edouard Payen) who was based in South West France. Payen worked on the prefecture at Agen, also of special note and many of the fine chateaux around Buzet. He applied his talents and care to this property in particular and his works are formally held in the Direction of Cultural Affairs for Aquitaine. Indeed this property is specifically listed as a " remarkable construction”.
The present owners, who have respected all of the property’s original features, have restored this house to its original grandeur. These include renovation of the wall paneling, oak floors and staircase, molded ceilings, marble fireplaces (15 of them in total), stone sculptures and the elaborate ironwork. They have also fully restored the stone-built guardian’s house and accompanying barn. At the same time, the owners have sympathetically incorporated many modern living comforts into the property such as gas central heating and a well-placed swimming pool. It has taken no less than five years of dedication to complete the restoration.
This house can certainly be considered a jewel in Lot-et-Garonne and as a fact, it has become rare to find such a unique property for sale in South West France.
