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.
