An authentic 18th century Béarnaise manor house with independent one bedroom guest annex, winter garden and vast barn, set in a little over 5 hectares of sumptuous landscaped gardens, including woodland, meadow and a large private lake.
This magnificent, entirely private estate, is accessed via a tree-lined entrance path, leading to the front, east facing elevation of the property. The property posesses some wonderful period fireplaces and original tiled floors, whilst offering the more modern comforts of central heating and double glazing. Accommodation in the manor house is provided over two floors and includes a large sitting room with open fireplace, a dining room, a fully equipped kitchen, a study, four bedrooms and three bathrooms. Bedroom windows are east facing, overlooking the mature park.
A beautiful 'winter garden' separates the main house from a gymnasium and games room and the huge barn; the latter of which has enormous potential for further development. Adjoining the west, rear facing elevation of the Manor house, is an independant one bedroom, self contained guest annex, entirely on one level, with a large reception room serving as a kitchen, dining and living room, with an open fireplce and wood burning stove.
The busy market towns of Orthez and Salies de Bearn can both be reached within a 10 minute drive, offering a wide selection of shops, bars and restaurants as well as very good schooling facilities. The ski slopes of the Pyrenees and the lively coastal resort of Biarrtiz and the Spanish border can be reached within the hour. Pau & Biarritz airports 45 minutes, Bordeaux and Toulouse airports under 2 hours and the TGV to Paris from Orthez at 10 minutes.
