Property Overview

FCH770

For Sale

This beautifully proportioned and remarkably well preserved Manor House from the Directoire period sits majestically in its own grounds of 8ha. Once the property of Roger Ducos, a well know political figure during the Revolution and First Empire, it remains to this day in the ownership of his descendants. Here is a unique and rare opportunity to acquire a little piece of that 18th century French history.

The Manor House retains a considerable amount of its period features including authentic ‘pierre de Bidache’ stone floors and wonderfully ornate parquet. Many original fireplaces are to be found intact, complete with decorative plaster mouldings and not to be forgotten is the most splendid staircase. It must also be noted that one particular bedroom is still decorated with its 19th century frescoe depicting a panoramic landscape.

The residence is in good general condition but would benefit from some refreshment however. The electrical system was renewed in 2014 and there is oil fired central heating.

A large barn of approximately 450m2 ground surface lies hidden to the rear of the Manor House behind an ancient Magnolia tree. This attractive building offers all sorts of variables for development such as further accommodation, art studio, gallery, workshop, stabling or other. Not far from the barn stands a vast oak below which sits the most charming pavilion providing a quiet corner for relaxation and reflection as indeed does the ornamental lake, in need of restoration, tucked away in secluded woodland nearby.

Situation; just 20 minutes from the railway station in Dax, under 1 hour from the international airport in Biarritz and ideally placed for access to both the Atlantic coast and the Pyrenees mountains.
