A Beautiful Napolean III Maison de Maitre with period Barn and 7,000m2 of grounds

Comprehensive Restoration, Period features, contemporary living, potential Gite conversion


This wonderful family home, built in 1870, is situated in a quiet Landaise village not far from the historical riverside Spa town of Dax. This bustling town offers all the amenities you could want for in addition to the world renowned Thermal Baths and Healing Mud treatments first discovered by the Romans some 2000 years earlier.

The house has undergone a comprehensive and sympathetic restoration the results of which are immediately appreciated when entering the splendid entrance hall with all its period features still in place; decorative double doors, fine plaster mouldings and original terracotta floor tiles. The authenticity of this magnificent home is not in doubt. It offers in abundance all the charms of a house of this period whilst providing a comfortable and contemporary living space. The home has central heating and is double glazed throughout.

The ample accommodation of 475m2 is spread over 3 floors, including 2 generous reception rooms, kitchen, entrance hall, bureau, wc and utilities on the ground floor followed by 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms on the 1st floor along with another 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, games room and attic space on the 2nd floor.

The outside space measures 7,000m2 with the garden encircling the house. A charming period barn, which has also been fully restored, can be found a short distance from the house. Presently used as a workshop and storage area, it could quite easily be converted into an independent Gite if so desired.

Ideally located for easy access to both the Atlantic Coast, Hossegor 35kms and the Pyrenees Mountains and Basque Country, Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port 77kms, with International airports of Biarritz at 50kms and Bordeaux at 170kms . Train service from Dax to Paris in 3hrs20mins.
