The ensemble includes the five bedroom Maison de Maître; a large stone barn with four stables (125m2 x two levels); a garage (56m2); a 5x10m swimming pool and three hectares of fenced land.
Its symmetrical façade, traditional shuttered windows and pretty picon tiled roof perfectly epitomises the local architecture. The interior benefits from plenty of natural light and has been tastefully renovated whilst maintaining its period character.
Accommodation is provided over three floors. The ground floor offers two large reception rooms and a dining kitchen opening into a glass conservatory, which offers the most splendid views to the Pyrenees mountains. A large utility room and storage room complete the ground floor. The first floor offers the Master bedroom with en-suite bathroom; two further bedrooms sharing the family bathroom and a large mezzanine (serving as a study), which overlooks the conservatory and benefits from the same impressive views. A large open plan studio bedroom occupies the entire third floor.
The grounds include fenced pastureland and a training arena for the current horses ; a block of woodland and a garden area with an ornate pond.
