There's few ways we'd rather spend summertime than by the Atlantic Ocean. From the thrill of surfing to a well deserved Tapas and a cool long drink, the endless beaches of the Landaise coast are just 20 minutes from this exceptional Manoir, built in 1899.
Les Landes has a beautiful, untouched coastline with a selection of award-winning beaches to choose from and Contis Plage is one of the choice spots. This lovely, 7 bedroom property sits within easy distance, and has been carefully restored and modernized to offer over 440m² of light, comfortable living space plus an additional 224m² of independent guest accomodation divided in 5 gites, and enjoying year round rentals.
Set in graceful parkland of approximately 1HA, the Manoir offers on the ground floor a comfortable sitting room with carved fireplace, a formal dining room, breakfast room, office and downstairs WC. A light and spacious family kitchen, fitted with Arthur Bonnet units and offering an excellent space for any keen cook is complemented by a tremendous, fully functioning open fireplace ensuring a perfect cosy spot in the winter months.
The original carved wooden staircase brings us to the first floor off which one finds 4 light and spacious bedrooms, each with ensuite facilities. Ascending to the second floor a further spacious 2 suites, one of which offers 2 bedrooms, complete the living accomodation.
Packed with original features yet none the less fully restored to include aluminium frame double glazing, wood pellet central heating throughout and spacious, comfortable rooms this Maison de Maitre is an exceedingly pleasant property to enjoy in any season.
Given the considerable size of the grounds, the 5 independent gites each have their own privacy and outdoor space and would provide an instant business oppourtunity to anyone seeking an easy revenue stream. The accommodation is divided into a 60m² apartment with 2 bedrooms and a 17 m² studio in the original barns. Here one also finds a shared guest laundry room and summer kitchen as well as the main Boiler room. An additional 150m² on the second floor are ripe for development. To the other side of the grounds a charming Landaise cottage is divided into 2 apartments of 60m², each with two bedrooms. Finally a pretty maisonette offers a studio of 27m², completing the guest accomodation.
A heated swimming pool of 11m x 5m, built new in 2016, sits comfortably within the wooded park where a number of centenary oaks, numerous flowering plants and private, shaded spots offer peaceful grounds in which to idle.
Just 5 minutes to the nearest village with shops and bakery and approx 20 minutes to the beach, the location of this property is an undeniable asset. 32 km from Dax with high speed rail to Paris, 1 hour to Biarritz airport, and 10 minutes from the A63 Motorway exchange to Bordeaux and Spain.
