Mirande "La Jolie" - a delightful small traditional market town with stunning views of the Pyrenees whose ski stations are just over an hour away. Good schools, medical facilities, banks, shopping. Just twenty minutes away from the cathedral and cultural centre of Auch.
Historic house with large walled garden in charming small market town. 450 m² 4 beds/4 baths. Potential for more. Family home or business?
This stone house with accommodation on three floors and convertible attics is now in the process of an immaculate restoration and only two months away from completion. An early agreement to buy will allow the buyer to influence finishing to provide a personalised product.
With the variety of access to the various floors, and between the various rooms, this extremely versatile layout offers great flexibility of use: from a large family home to various business uses including a small hotel or holiday apartments with owners accommodation. Further development of both cellars and attics would provide even greater potential. There is the possibility to buy adjacent undeveloped property for those looking to commercial usage.

Centrally situated in the charming small market town of Mirande "La Jolie", on the N21 between Auch and Tarbes, this historically interesting house offers every convenience of French small town life to the occupier. Yet within the walled garden screened by mature trees one can enjoy a level of peace and privacy rarely encountered outside a country home.
The generously proportioned rooms with ceiling heights up to 3m have numerous interesting original features, as might be expected of what was once the house of the tax collector of the "Sun King", and evoke a sense of history and of gracious living whilst offering every modern comfort.
