A rare and beautiful 17th Century stone townhouse, with independent gîte, immaculately presented, and situated in the medieval quarter of the historic hilltop town of Sauveterre de Béarn, known for its spectacular views across the river and Pyrenees mountain range.
This exceptional property is entered via a gated archway, dated 1623, into private south facing gardens. The main house is flanked by a beautiful stone tower, housing the main entrance doorway and an elliptical staircase accessing all floor levels. A large open plan reception room with feature fireplace and dining area leads through to the bespoke kitchen, with handmade oak units and patio doors leading to the dining terrace. A further reception room with fireplace completes the ground floor. The first floor provides three large bedrooms, the master bedroom with private south facing baclony, a luxurious bathroom suite and an en-suite shower room. The staircase leads onto the second floor which offers 100m2 of converted attic space, ready for the creation of more bedrooms, if desired.
Just a few steps from the main residence is a delux guest wing, operating as a luxury independent gîte with 5 star reviews. Created in the 100m2 stone barn, this self contained annexe offers an open plan kitchen, dining and living room, private terrace and laundry room on the ground floor and a spacious bedroom suite with private, en-suite bathroom on the first floor.
Outside the well maintained gardens are a place to sit back and soak up the historic surroundings of this truly amazing set of buildings. The area is a popular tourist destination with activities ranging from golf, white water rafting, kayaking, canoeing, hang-gliding, riding and ballooning as well as surfing and skiing at the nearest beach and mountain resorts within an hours reach.
