Maison de Maitre, Guardians house, period barn, garden and swimming pool with 2.75ha

Maison de Maitre, attractive ensemble of buildings, huge potential for development, swimming pool



This wonderful Maison de Maitre and associated buildings are found on a quiet country lane in the very picturesque Chalosse region of Les Landes. The principal house and its attached Guardian's house, complete with traditional balcony, form one leg of the L shape configuration and the barn the other. This unusual and interesting ensemble of buildings was formerly a Magnanery, built during the 18th and 19th centuries.

The Maison de Maitre offers over 400m² of living space and is spread over two floors. Packed full of period features such as exposed parquet floors, decorative fire places, character floor tiles and even the original bread oven. The accommodation is made up of a kitchen, three reception rooms and two bedrooms with en-suite facilities on the ground floor and a further six bedrooms and shower room on the first floor.

The pretty Guardians house would benefit from some restoration work although the roof is sound. The house retains many authentic features and could provide one with some additional habitable space for family and friends or be utilized for generating some additional income in the way of a Gite.

The splendid barn with its attractive pediment measures nearly 350m² at ground level and offers the purchaser a unique opportunity to create something quite spectacular, perhaps an art gallery or studio or maybe a wonderful Gite. More recently part used as a dwelling and part used as farm storage it is in need of refurbishment but the roof remains in good order. The house also benefits from a good sized swimming pool.

This charming ‘ensemble’ of buildings and the accompanying 2.75ha of parkland is situated just five minutes from a lively market town and conveniently located for both Atlantic Coast and Pyrenees Mountains at 1hr 30mins distance.
