€ 1.155,000*Property For Sale, Ascain, Pyrenées Atlantique, Aquitaine.FCH635

1854 Maison de Maître, 20 minutes from the Atlantic Coast

Vibrant Village Location; Spacious Family Home; 5 Bedrooms & Swimming Pool


A 19th Century Five Bedroom Manor House set in its own private gardens with gated entrance and a swimming pool. The property is situated in the centre of a vibrant village, only 20 minutes away from the Atlantic coast.

This immaculately maintained Manor House benefits from a private location, in the heart of the Basque Country, in the province of Lapurdi, a town full of charm, with its picturesque central square and its “Fronton” where the local game of “Pelotte” is played.

The house enjoys modern day comforts with a beautiful fireplace as the main attraction in the large salon (71m2), which was recovered from a castle. The salon and the kitchen provide access to the private gardens and swimming pool. The view from the bedrooms, the terrace and the gardens to the foothills of the mountains, especially La Rhune, which is a summit located in the Pyrenees to the Spanish border, is simply beautiful. This home was professionally renovated and due to large windows and high ceilings, creates a wonderful light and homely ambiance.

Accommodation covers almost 310m2 over 3 floors with a vast reception room (71m2); 5 bedrooms, the master of which has an en-suite; a family shower room and the possibility to create two further bedrooms on the second floor.  

What can be better than relaxing next to the swimming pool and either wine and dine on the terrace with food prepared on the ‘plancha’, or walk just a very short distance to the local restaurants.

Situated only a few minutes from the centre of this buzzing village, and yet with the tranquillity and privacy of the countryside, this property has the best of both worlds.  Communication links are also good: 30 minutes to the airports of Biarritz and San Sebastian, 50 minutes from the ski slopes of the Pyrénées and half an hour to Spain. Pau and Bilbao airports 90 minutes; Bordeaux airport 2 hours 15 minutes.
