Set in the breathtaking rolling hills, in the centre of the Gers (32) you will find this remarkable house with gite and some renovations to complete. Set within 4 Ha of fields (each with it's own field shelter and large barn) with historical connections; La Grange was first gifted to the Knights Templar in 1250. This fabulous property is situated at the end of a 2km road, accessed via a small, publicly maintained lane which terminates at its entrance, nestled in the centre of over 100 ha of organic farmland, 1km to the nearest neighbours.
The sumptuous views can be enjoyed from each window of the house and carefully restored tower. This impressive property could be a large family home, a home with gite accommodation; with areas still to complete, a chance for you to make your own mark. With fenced fields, equestrian facilities, outbuildings, above ground pool and a covered terrace, two ponds (one spring fed).

As well as the WOW factor of it's medieval past, the areas that have been restored by the current owner have been done so with love and compassion with the ancestory of house in mind. Their mission was to start a 'full and respectful' renovation knowing the historical importance of the structure. La Grange des Templiers dates back to 1250, this division was the cavalry; they provided shelter and safe passage to pilgrims on their journey to Santiago de Compostela. During the early renovations in 2017, hidden deep within the stone walls, numerous secret carvings were found that had been left by the Knights Templar; the 'Seed of Life' in the centre of the tower had laid undiscovered for 800 years. A renowned historian worked with the current owners and discovered that the 'La Grange' was of deep esoteric significance and most probably used for Templar ceremonies. The period features add a real gravitas; in particular the stone work, openings, arrow slit and arches whilst the modern improvements make this ancient treasure an extremely comfortable home!

Currently the house benefits from:

Mainly double glazed, connected to mains water, electricity and telephone-internet (Broadband) by landline.
