€ 451,851*Property For Sale, Mont de Marsan, Landes, Aquitaine.FCH673

Grand Town House with Courtyard and Large Garden.

Center of Historic Town, Shop Front, Spacious Garden.


This spectacular 17th century town house is situated in the central square of a small yet vibrant Medieval market town in the heart of the Chalosse in the Landes region of the South West. The town is strikingly beautiful and of historical importance, it is also well frequented by both locals and tourists alike with its Saturday market, Café’s and Bistro’s making it an enormously appealing place to visit.

This magnificent property is at the epi-center of the town and offers enormous potential for a B&B project. There is also a small shop space included in the sale which could be developed as an art gallery or something similar. You will be delighted to discover that the house itself has fortunately retained many period features including some wonderfully decorative stone fireplaces, elaborate ‘parquet’ flooring, fine stucco plasterwork and an extremely impressive 18th century staircase. The accommodation is spread over the 1st and 2nd floors of the building as the ground floor is set aside for the entrance hall, shop and various storage rooms. The 1st floor then provides the main living space with 3 formal reception rooms, kitchens and additional rooms. The 2nd floor offers 6 bedrooms and 1 bathroom in its present configuration. It must be noted that the house would benefit from up-dating which would include redecoration and rewiring.

The house also benefits from an interior courtyard which gives access to a large garden of 1700m2 to the rear of the property and is classed ‘jardin remarquable’ thus being protected from development.

Situated conveniently between the Atlantic Coast and the Pyrenees Mountains with the international airports of Biarritz at 1hr30mins to the west and Bordeaux at 2hrs to the north. Dax and its TGV rail link is at 40mins.
