9 Suites Chateau; 1 Bed Cottage; Home Cinema; Gymnasium & Sauna; Bar


PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

A Majestic Chateau, offering luxury living, with its own private lake; heated swimming pool; summer house with entertaining area and cinema; gymnasium with sauna; and irreproachably appointed kitchen and bathrooms.  Originally designed and built in 1811, the chateau offers four large reception rooms; a large well appointed kitchen and 9 luxury bedroom suites - the majority of which offer views across the private lake.   The Estate also offers a one bedroom Guest Cottage (150m2); a Summerhouse (200m2 on two levels); a Large Barn / maintenance area (397m2) and an Animal / Plant store (150m2).  The ensemble is set in its own gated grounds with a private lake to the foreground …home to swans, turtles, ducks and a host of visiting wildlife.

The chateau has recently been renovated to an exceptional standard to include complete rewiring and replumbing; new hard wood double glazed windows; a geothermic heating (and cooling) system; and solid marble slabs on the ground floor and solid oak floors upstairs.  There is the possibility to purchase the property fully furnished with luxury finishings such as bespoke velvet curtains, chandeliers, paintings and quality furniture to include Chesterfield sofas and armchairs and Oriental wool / silk rugs etc.  The chateau is powered by a Geothermic pump, an ecologically sound choice, providing heating and hot water as well as warming the swimming pool. The swimming pool is of bespoke design with a natural granite surround and measures  20 x 7.5 metres.  Night-lighting and external speakers are insitu.

The Estate includes 14 hectares of land : 6 acres of grounds immediately surrounding the chateau and 12 hectares of woodlands  and fields opposite.  The chateau is back-dropped by a Jurançon vineyard, historically part of the chateau’s heritage. The Ensemble is sensitively set back from the main road to allow privacy but also allows ease of access to all amenities.  Its neighbouring village is just 9 kilometres away and offers all necessary amenities.  Ideal location for those in search of peacefulness rather than complete isolation. The historic city of Pau can be reached in 35 minutes and its airport is a mere 30 minutes driving distance. Motorway access 25 minutes. Pyrenees mountains for ski, approx. 1 hour as are the beaches of Biarritz.
