This grand and imposing 19C Maison de Maitre is situated on the edge of the historical town of Oloron Ste Marie and has impressive views of the Pyrenees mountain range. The ensemble includes the six bedroom Maison de Maître; a separate building housing three independent apartments; a stable block and a large hangar, all set within 7,264m2 of gated grounds. The private rear gardens benefit from open and elevated views of the Pyrenees Mountains; the immediate countryside and the old medieval quarters of the town. The property is situated less than 1 kilometre from its neighbouring tourist town of Oloron Ste Marie, and hence restaurants, shops and markets are all within easy walking distance. The main house has retained its authentic charm with its period fireplaces; original staircase; timber floors and built-in period cupboards. It also benefits from connection to the mains drainage system and the facility of mains gas outside should the new owner wish to connect it.
The Maison de Maître offers spacious accommodation over two floors with three reception rooms and the kitchen situated on the ground floor with access to the rear garden. The first floor is presently configured to have a two-bedroom apartment, accessed via external staircase, and 5 bedrooms running along the south side sharing a family bathroom. The walls dividing the bedrooms are non-load bearing and could be reconfigured to incorporate en-suite bathrooms.
The separate building houses a two-bedroom apartment on the ground floor plus a large garage area for the tenants. The upstairs apartments each have one bedroom and are accessed via outside stairs to the rear. The former stable block is very attractive architecturally and could be converted into further accommodation, if required.
The property has been realistically priced to reflect the fact that there is some upgrading work to do in terms of new bathrooms, kitchen and refreshing of paintwork. Situated just 25 minutes from the beautiful historic city of Pau, 90 minutes from the Atlantic coast around Biarritz and less than one hour from the ski slopes of the Pyrenees. Pau airport 35 minutes; Biarritz airport 90 minutes.
