A Country Manor House with Spectacular Mountain Views & Walkable to its Market Town

5 Beds; Infinity Pool; Converted Barn housing Summer Lounge & Garage


Situated just a 10 minutes walk from its small market town, which is equipped with all necessary amenities, this handsome French Manor House benefits from an elevated position with spectacular mountain views.   The ensemble includes the Manor House; its former barn serving as a  summer lounge area and a garage; a 6x15m swimming pool and 7,700m2 of delightful grounds with far reaching views of the countryside and Pyrenees mountains.

The Manor House and its barn have been subject to professional restoration within the last 10 years to include complete re-wiring and full installation.  It further benefits from double glazing throughout and an aerothermic heating system, which provides efficient and economic heating and hot water, contributing to the B classified energy rating.

Approximately half of the barn has been converted into a summer lounge area (heated by a wood burning stove), which leads onto a private terrace over-looking the pool. The remaining half of the barn serves as a garage.  To convert this into a self contained gîte would be relatively easy by creating a bedroom upstairs and extending the downstairs area into the garage to create enough space for a kitchen.

The mature grounds extend around the property and are fenced. The heated swimming pool (6 x 15m), with its natural stone surround is situated to the south-west side of the property and has an infinity edge. 

The house has a rural, but not isolated location, being just a ten minute walk from its little market town; 25 minutes from the beautiful historical city of Pau; 45 minutes from the ski slopes of the Pyrenees and one hour from the Atlantic Coast, around Biarritz.  Pau airport 35 minutes; Tarbes / Lourdes airport 50 minutes and Toulouse airport 2 hours.
