French country living at its finest, this early 19th century former farmhouse ensemble has been professionally re-modelled and extended into its adjoining former barn to create a beautifully spacious, light and comfortable four bedroom family home.
This truly exceptional property offers a stylish blend of period charm and modern day living. The design incorporates the creation of a sensational 45m2 dining kitchen in the adjoining stone barn, which becomes the « heart of the home » with patio doors leading to the sunny south facing courtyard and gardens. Four charming bedrooms on the first floor and three bathrooms are accessed via two beautiful hardwood staircases and a large family sitting room with original flagstones on the ground floor provides a comfortable space for large gatherings around the open fireplace. The original oak staircase of the farmhouse extends to the second floor attic, which could be easily transformed into two further bedrooms or a childrens’ playroom.
Nestled in the heart of a peaceful Béarnaise village and surrounded by almost one acre of private, landscaped grounds, close to the River Saison, the property enjoys a rural situation without being isolated. With local activities to include golf, white water rafting and canoeing, ski stations, atlantic beaches and Biarritz airport at just one hour and weekly local markets, brocantes and excellent restaurants nearby, this beautifully presented « corps de ferme » would be equally perfect as a permanent residence or a holiday home.
