Property Overview

For Sale

This attractive stone farm ensemble enjoys an entirely secluded situation in a typical béarnaise village just a short drive from the two charming tourists towns of Salies and Sauveterre de Bearn. 

With origins dating to the early 19th century, the farmhouse is presented in excellent condition, having been renovated in recent years, but retaining many original features and exposed stone walls. The ground floor living space has been extended through what was once a humble barn for the animals, into a generous, open-plan living and dining room, with exposed stonework and a cosy log burner. This delightful living room opens onto both the east facing courtyard and an intimate terrace on the north side. A fitted kitchen with pantry leads through to the entrance hall and a study. The first floor offers three double bedrooms and a large family bathroom. An additional small closet room of around 5m2 could be transformed into an extra bathroom on this floor. The second floor attic space has been renovated into a further bedroom with a WC and wash basin.

The property is accessed via a village impasse leading into the woods. There are neighbours nearby, but the farm ensemble is entirely private. The grounds, including a small area of woodland, measure a little over 2.5 acres and extend to the river Saleys down below. A large stone barn, attached to the farmhouse, forms the attractive courtyard and is ideal for someone with a project of gîtes or requiring a large workshop. The barn measures approximately 67m2 on the ground floor, with an upper floor level to exploit of the same size. Completing the farm buildings are an open sided carport and former pigsty and hen house, leading through to the gardens.

The current owners benefit from a contract with EDF, selling electricity generated from their solar panels back to the grid. This earns sufficient funds to cover much of the annual property taxes and energy bills.

The environement is calm and peaceful, although the farm is only a short 10 minute drive to the pretty tourists towns of Salies and Sauveterre de Bearn and the busy market town of Orthez, with its excellent transport links. The Atlantic coastline, around Biarritz and St Jean de Luz can be reached within an hour, and the ski resorts of the Pyrenees in around the same time.

This is a truly exceptional listing in the quality of its presentation!
