This delightful 18C Béarnaise house has a superb elevated position with uninterrupted views across the rolling hills to the south of Pau. Its stone façade, traditional shuttered windows and natural slate roof epitomize the local architecture. A long tree lined driveway gently climbs up through the grounds to the southwest side of the property.
The same family has lovingly looked after this property for generations. The adjoining barn was renovated to extend the property and create a sitting room with a galleried mezzanine. In 2006, the property was re-roofed in natural slate and a conservatory was added, further extending the ground floor. The internal layout of the property was also re-configured to accommodate un TV lounge and office on the mezzanine; a master bedroom with dressing & shower room and a family shower on the first floor and two further bedrooms plus a toilet on the second floor.
The property benefits from double glazed aluminium windows, reversible air-conditioning (heat / cold), a new kitchen and new shower rooms. The swimming pool has a practical security cover which also warms the water, extending the swimming season.
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 rural, but not isolated location. Located 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.
