Bastiat’s house is for sale
The Dufaur de Gavardie de Monclar family, who jointly own Bastiat’s property in Souprosse, inform us that they have reluctantly decided to put it up for sale, as no one member of the family is able to purchase it. It consists of a fine 17th century manor house, with early 20th century alterations, approached via a long tree-lined driveway, a barn and an outbuilding, all set in grounds of 28,000 mÂ².
The main house has a surface area of 200mÂ², on three levels, that is 600mÂ² of living space. The barn, with a timber-frame roof of outstanding architectural interest, has a surface area of 400mÂ² and consists of three levels. The outbuilding is a house on two levels, with a surface area of 100mÂ².
The whole property is for sale for 426,900 euros.
Here is the link, thanks to the Mises blog for the pointer. Here is a short biography of Bastiat that also contains links to many of his works. Perhaps I will stop by the house to pay my respects.
