Privately Situated Maison de Maître with 4.8 HA of Sympathetically Landscaped Grounds

Private Natural Environment; Beautifully Presented 4 Bed Period Property; Authentic Charm


This delightful 18C Maison de Maitre is hidden at the end of its wooded driveway, and would appeal to someone specifically looking for a private location.  The property sits in 4.8 hectares of predominately wooded land and over-looks beautiful rolling countryside to the Pyrenees mountains.  The grounds have been sympathetically designed to encourage and protect local wildlife.  There is a large natural pond and paths leading into the woods as well as a large terrace, a useful wood store, a former pig-sty serving as a garden store and a practical parking area; all naturally blended into the environment. 

Accommodation is provided over three levels.  The ground floor offers a large living room with its original open fireplace; a charming dining room with exposed stonewalls; a kitchen with a wood-fired range; a utility room; a cloakroom and a rear lobby area.  The first floor offers two bedrooms each with their own en-suite bathroom; an upstairs sitting room and plenty of built-in storage.  The second floor offers a third bedroom; a large office and a large storage /dressing room which could easily serve as a fourth bedroom.

Situated amidst the rolling hills 30 minutes south of the beautiful historic city of Pau and just 10 minutes from the attractive market town of Gan, this property has a private, but not isolated location.  

30 minutes from the beautiful historical city of Pau; 45 minutes from the ski slopes of the Pyrenees and one hour 30 minutes from the Atlantic Coast, around Biarritz. Pau airport 40 minutes; Tarbes / Lourdes airport 50 minutes and Toulouse & Bordeaux airports 2 hours.
