A Beautiful Contemporary Property with Reclaimed Period Features

5 Beds; Period Features; Pool; 1.2HA Mature Garden


This contemporary house was designed by a local architect and built in 1982 with a clear vision to achieve a quality construction with character and period charm.  The present owners carefully selected antique fireplaces and period cupboard doors from a Parisian antique dealer; terracotta tiles were selected for the ground floor and handmade picon roof tiles and a reclaimed antique entrance door completed the outside ‘look’.  The property sits in 1.2 hectare of land with a large swimming pool situated to the south-east side and a spacious parking area to the west side, leading to the integrated double garage. 

Accommodation is provided over two floors.  The ground floor offers two large reception rooms; a study; a dining kitchen opening onto the covered dining terrace; a double guest bedroom with en-suite shower room and a large utility room with steps leading down to the integrated garage, wine cellar and boiler room.  The first floor offers the master bedroom with dressing area and large bathroom; a guest bedroom with en-suite shower room and two further bedrooms sharing a shower room.

Situated just 3 minutes from the popular market town of Morlaas and 15 minutes from the centre of Pau.    Communication links are also good: 1 hour from the ski slopes of the Pyrénées and one hour from the coastal resort of Biarritz and the Spanish border. Pau airport 20 minutes; Tarbes/Lourdes airport 40 minutes; Toulouse airport 90 minutes.
