Under Offer

Mellow limewash, trailing wisteria and delicate ironwork greet you as you ascend the stone steps to this glorious Maison de Maitre, set in the heart of a pretty Landaise village, typifying the very essence of the gentle Chalosse way of life.

This is a family home that has been much loved over the years, originally built in the 17th century at a time when it is said, 40 of the region's wealthiest merchants chose to each create their own grand homes in this one hilltop village away from the rush of the world.Much of the original elements remain, from glorious original wood panelling to the carved stone fireplace and the 'tomette' terra cotta flooring. Whilst there is a lovely symmetry to the front, the interior is packed with quirky charm as the property evolved over the centuries, to include an 18th century reception room to the front and a pretty 19th century courtyard section .

The front door opens to a long corridor, leading past a spacious hall with winding staircase toward the grand salon at the rear of the property. From here one continues back around to pass through a music room and find a further second sitting room and office. The family sized kitchen with an enormous fireplace for cosy winter days and a separate 3rd sitting room are found in the later 19th century arm of the building. This third sitting room offers an ideal solution for those seeking to work from home, as it can provide independent access for clients if so wished.

On the first floor, three large bedrooms, measuring 34m², 25m² and 48m² respectively, are light packed and elegant. The master bedroom has a private covered balcony for those moments when only a secluded coffee will do. A good sized family bathroom with freestanding bath, dressing room and separate WC complete the ensemble. It should be noted that work on renovating and kitting out a fourth bedroom is underway, but will need to be completed by the next owner. This room offers a further 51m² of space and adjoins the existing bedrooms.

Finally the former wine store, also adjoining the main property, houses a second shower room and utility space. It presents an exciting opportunity for those in search of a project as once converted, this could provide a substantial addition to the existing 338m² of living space.

The garden is heavy with ancient fruit trees and the views out towards the Chalosse valley are quite astounding. To the front a delightful south facing gravel courtyard bedecked with mature climbing roses, grape vines and established hydrangea is the ideal place to stop the clock, unwind and enjoy all that life in the South West of France has to offer.

The property is located just 50 minutes from the Atlantic ocean, in the heart of a sought  after village that hosts an annual art exhibition, together with several cultural and culinary events throughout the year. It is just 10 minutes from Saint Sever with access to the best school in the department of les Landes, 35 minutes from the fast line TGV at Dax, and 20 minutes from the prefecture town of Mont de Marsan.

Priced to sell so don't miss out on this fantastic opportunity.
