A Handsome Maison de Maitre with Guardian's Cottage and 6 Hectares of Land.

7 Beds; Beautiful Original Features; Set in Peaceful Countryside surrounded by its Land


This handsome maison de maitre built in 1880 by the family of the present owners is offered with 6ha of mature gardens, pasture and woodland, a guardians cottage and large period barn. The property is packed full of charm and beauty with all its original features still in place such as decorative fireplaces, period doors, attractive floor tiles and parquet but most appealing of all is the mesmerizing spiral staircase. Spread over three floors, with three reception rooms, bureau and seven bedrooms this home welcomes you open armed.

The interior has benefited from a restoration that took place some years ago and has maintained a crisp and fresh feel. The staircase, not only regal but practical too, delivers you effortlessly to the first and second floor landings in suitable style. The bedrooms are arranged around each spacious landing, four on each floor with the main bedrooms enjoying en-suite shower rooms. All rooms have been finished to a high standard.

A guardians cottage, ready for renovation, can be found within the extensive grounds as can a large and charming period barn once used for the making of wine. There are a number of centenarian trees close to the house including oak, cedar, palm and plane that can be best appreciated whilst taking a stroll on one of the many meandering paths through the garden. Located in a quiet region of ’Les Landes’ not far from a small market town on the scenic Adour river. 20 minutes to the prefecture town of Mont de Marsan and motorway access. 1 hour to Pau international airport, 1 hour 40 to Bordeaux international airport and just under 2 hours to Biarritz on the Atlantic coast. There is also the possibility to acquire additional land, by separate negotiation should you wish.
