A 9 hectares former wine estate comprising of an authentic Maison Bourgeoise with four ancillary buildings to include a former winery (167m2); a barn (108m2); a stable block (35m2) and a garage (50m2). Due to its southwest exposure, this property would be ideal for someone looking to re-plant a vineyard and launch a winery. Equally someone with a project requiring numerous large out-buildings and a natural water source.
The five buildings have been re-roofed by artisans belonging to the reputable National organization, Les Compagnons du Tour de France. As such, the buildings were re-roofed to replicate their original covering; the winery roof has a combination of picon tiles and slate, which was considered the best to preserve an optimum temperature of the wine. The main house has also been re-rendered by the same skilled artisans using traditional chalk rendering.
The interior of the house has been expressly left in its original state and as such has a wealth of period features, such as its original balcony which runs the length of the front façade; its original windows and louvered shutters; its magnificent period staircase and fireplaces in every room. In retaining these period features, this property could be transformed into a beautiful family home. As a consequence of having been left largely 'untouched', it does requires re-wiring and re-plumbing.
Situated in the Jurancon wine region, between the pretty market town of Monein and the 14C fortified town of Navarrenx. 30 minutes from the beautiful historical city of Pau; 45 minutes from both the ski slopes of the Pyrenees and the Atlantic Coast, around Biarritz. Pau airport 25 minutes; Tarbes / Lourdes airport 40 minutes and Toulouse & Bordeaux airports 2 hours
