A haven of peace and tranquility, this elegant early 19th century Maison de Maître, set in 5,000m2 of private and beautifully landscaped park, traversed by a little brook, is situated just a few minutes from the charming riverside town of Amou and only one hour from the Atlantic coastal resorts...


Property Overview


For Sale

The estate is approached via a private graveled driveway, leading past the remains of an old stone barn, adorned with wisteria, and the peaceful gardens planted with mature trees. The long colombage, half-timbered entrance hall, typical of an early 19th century Landaise Maison de Maître, leads to the ground floor rooms, comprising; a large sitting room, with open fireplace, a dining room, a kitchen leading to an outdoor covered dining terrace with an open fireplace, a utility room with central heating boiler and a shower room with WC. A beautiful carved staircase curls up to two upper floors; the first floor comprising three bedrooms, two shower rooms and a large reception room overlooking the park. The second floor offers a library and study on the landing, three further bedrooms, a family bathroom and separate WC.

The large barn to the side of the property provides space for parking vehicles and storage. A sauna and relaxation room, plus a playroom have been created in the rear part of the barn, along with a scullery kitchen. The park is divided into several zones; to the front, the mature trees and shrubs with the brook, offering shade and a tranquil place to relax, to the side, a useful area for a laundry line, and to the rear, a 5M x 12 swimming pool in a sunny, exposed situation, surrounded by more mature shrubs and a covered dining terrace.

The property has been inhabited as a permanent residence until very recently, and has therefore been maintained in good condition, with annual repairs and maintenance carried out. However, some gently refurbishing would be required in modernization of the kitchen and bathrooms and the septic tank requires upgrading to comply with the latest regulations.

The pretty riverside town of Amou is just 2 kilometres away, accessed via rural path, making it practical for families with young children to cycle into town. The town provides a good level of basic commerces as well as a very good restaurant and a pizzeria. The larger market town of Orthez is situated 15 minutes south of Amou, with its high-speed TGV train connecting to Paris in under 4 hours.
