This attractive contemporary house has been built in a traditional style and is situated in one of the most highly sought after areas of Pau.

Accommodation is offered over three floors.  The ground floor entrance opens into an impressive hallway with a double height ceiling with two galleried landings and exposed beams; the sitting / dining room (60m2) is located to the south side of the property and has three sets of French doors opening onto the covered dining terrace which surrounds the swimming pool; the kitchen has been recently refitted with a range of wood units with local ‘Arudy’ granite worktops; the main bedroom has a large recently re-fitted shower room and a large dressing room; the guest cloakroom completes the ground floor accommodation.  The first floor offers a large mezzanine area; a guest bedroom with en-suite bathroom; three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.  A spiral staircase leads up to the third floor, which currently serves as storage space but could be converted into an additional bedroom.  The basement of the property houses the utility room; games room; wine cellar; shower room; boiler room and garage. 

The mature grounds are beautifully maintained and offer a wide expanse of lawn with bordering mature trees and plantings around the property (7,500m2) plus a separate wood of 8,000m2.  A large natural stone terrace surrounds the swimming pool (11.5 x 5.5m) and offers impressive views across the undulating countryside.
