Designed by a local architect and beautifully presented by its French owners, this contemporary house has one of the best locations close to the historic city of Pau. Set on a superb ridge position with 180 degrees views of the Pyrenees mountains and the city of Pau, where the Château, birthplace to Henri IV, dominates the sky-line. The house was built in 2007 by a builder belonging to the reputable organization Les Compagnons du Tour de France ; the windows framed with dressed stone and the slate roof with a vaulted ceiling over the front door are proof of the quality of the construction of the building. Double glazed windows, under-floor central heating fired by an air-source heat exchange pump and modern insulation all contribute to its B classified energy rating.
The interior layout is very light and spacious and offers a 96 m² reception room with three large sliding glass doors accentuating the 180 degrees views. The heated Infinity Pool (6x12m) aesthetically blends into its surroundings with its generously sized paved terrace and dramatic views.
Situated only 5 minutes from the restaurants and boutiques in the centre of Pau and yet with the tranquillity and privacy of the countryside, this property has the best of both worlds. Communication links are also good: 45 minutes from the ski slopes of the Pyrénées and one hour from the lively cosmopolitan coastal resort of Biarritz and the Spanish border. Pau airport 20 minutes; Tarbes/Lourdes airport 40 minutes; Toulouse airport 90 minutes.
