€ 525,000*Property For Sale, Navarrenx, Pyrenées Atlantique, Aquitaine.FCH376

An Elegant Château Close To 14C Fortified Town of Navarrenx

Period Features ; 9 Bedrooms ; Private Grounds ; Potential for Development


This elegant Château, dominating the hillside of its pretty Bearnaise village, just a short distance from the 14C fortified town of Navarrenx, was originally commissioned for build between 1914 and 1918 for Monsieur Barthet, a famous Tenor of the Opéra de Paris.

Using a blend of renowned stone from neighbouring regions; the grey “Pierre d’Arudy” from the Pyrenees and the pale “Pierre d’Angouleme”, the striking architecture of the chateau, with its towers on each of the four corners, is a rare find in this region in today’s market. The Château is presented in good order with all period features intact.

The grand entrance hall is central to all of the ground floor reception rooms, each of which are accessed through full height double doors. Both the kitchen and formal dining room open onto an east facing terrace overlooking the surrounding valley. The first floor consists of four bedrooms and a bathroom accessed by a central “antechamber” which serves as an informal sitting room with office space. Each of the first floor bedrooms has access to a private room within the four corner towers which serve as en-suite toilet and wash rooms.

The second floor of the chateau provides a further five bedrooms, four toilets and a large storage room and the vast basement houses the wine cellar, boiler room and workshop and has access to the exterior gardens.

Requiring some modernization, the Château would ideally suit a large family or a business venture in accommodation and tourism. The property listing FCH355 – formerly the Conciergerie to the estate – can also be purchased together as an ensemble.
