Dominating its hillside, in the heart of the Jurançon wine region, and just 5 minutes from the vibrant historic city of Pau stands this immaculate mid 19C chateau. The chateau is reached at the end of a long private driveway, which meanders up through its immaculately kept grounds, past its private lake, its tennis court and its former Orangerie, through its electronic gates and into its immediate gardens. The gardens surrounding the chateau have been professionally landscaped with a large terrace over-looking the breath-taking views; a kidney shape pool with surrounding dining terrace, pool house with wash facilities; a 22m long training swimming pool and two large double garages.
Accommodation is provided over three floors. Large entrance doors open into the hallway with an impressive period staircase to the left and the dining kitchen to the right. The three reception rooms occupy the south-east and south-west side of the chateau and benefit from the impressive views. The first floor offers the master bedroom with its large en-suite bathroom, and three further bedrooms, which share the house bathroom. The second floor offers an additional four double bedrooms each with en-suite shower facilities plus a central games / TV room and a dressing room.
This Estate offers the best of both worlds : a private location with unrivalled views and close proximity to a vibrant historic town which is ideally situated just one hour from both the sandy beaches of the Atlantic Coast and the ski slopes of the Pyrenees mountains. Pau is renowned for its ‘Monaco style’ Formula 3,000 and Classic Car Grand Prix; its Equestrian facilities including its International Horse Trials and Race Course; its impressive kayaking training centre served by Olympic champion Tony Estanguet and its exquisite boutiques and gastronomic restaurants.
French Character Homes is delighted to be marketing this impressive and immensely appealing family home and would highly recommend a visit to appreciate its location.
