A tree lined avenue and beautiful wrought iron gates give access to this exquisite turnkey Maison de Maitre set in just under 5 hectares of grounds. The main house was entirely restored in 2010 and the other building would lend itself to a Guest house project. In addition there are stables and meadow for horses, a heated swimming pool and easy access to a charming market town yet in a setting of complete and utter peace and tranquillity.
Maison de Maitre:
A bright entrance hall with attractive 19th C. black and white floor tiles and a pretty turning wooden staircase. To one side is a light and spacious drawing room and on the other side, the formal dining room with original parquet flooring from which a corridor with terracotta floor tiles leads to a second living room and to a spacious modern family kitchen, W.C., spacious boot room and technical room with access to the efficient Aero thermique pump system that heats the house. Both of the living rooms have fully functioning fireplaces. The original wooden staircase leads to:
Five bedrooms, one of which is currently in use as a study. Each of the remaining four bedrooms have access to an independent dressing room and en-suite facilities. A large landing and a separate W.C. complete this floor.
This floor has a vast living space of 50m2 which could function as a superb sixth bedroom, ideal for teenagers seeking some independence – or as a fantastic play room for children
Eco features include double glazing throughout, excellent insulation and an aero thermic pump heating system which makes this an economic house to run.
Fully rewired, the house has a new roof and septic tank fitted in 2010.
For those looking for a Gite project or a larger family home, the separate house presents the ideal opportunity. Presently it provides a ground floor apartment of approximately 60m32 and a first floor apartment of 100m2, each with independent access. Both apartments have wiring and plumbing points in place but are yet to be completed.
These consist of 1 hectare of mature wooded parkland, meadow for horses, a vegetable garden and plenty of private parking, totalling 46952m² in all. Beautiful heated swimming pool is set in a protected and private enclosure in the stone walls of a former barn, surrounded by spacious terracing.
A rare jewel of a property in turnkey condition offering a haven of peace in a region that has good connections and is well known for its vibrant lifestyle. The famous surfers paradise of Hossegor is just over an hour away and within two hours are the ski resorts of Cauterets and Gourette. The high speed TGV to Paris is 30 minutes away at Orthez and Pau airport, 45 minutes away. Spain is under 2 hours. In the more immediate surroundings are the five star thermal spa resort of Eugenie-les-Bains, 35 minutes away and the historic town of Saint Sever, 15 minutes away.
