For Sale - Sole Agency

This substantial Country Residence with origins dating back to the 16th century, is situated just 10 minutes from the pretty market town of Monein and the 14C fortified town of Navarrenx, recently nominated as one of the most beautiful villages in France.  The beautiful historic city of Pau and the cosmopolitan coastal resort of Biarritz can be reached in 35 and 80 minutes respectively.  

The property sits at the end of a long private driveway which meanders up through its 9.4HA of private meadow and woodland to a privileged hilltop position with exceptional views of the Pyrenees mountains.

This substantial Manor House (520m²) sits alongside, and perpendicular to, its three adjoining barns forming an attractive inner courtyard.  The courtyard is the oldest part of the property; its over-hanging Béarnaise balcony with its colombage and Toulousien brick wall and stone surround doors are believed to date back to the sixteenth century. A former chicken-coop: a pigeonnier and a 11x5m heated swimming pool complete the ensemble. The immediate gardens are divided into sections by low stone walls and ornate railings.  Of the 9.4 hectares (22.2 acres), approximately 2.7 HA is laid to meadow and 6.7 HA woodland.   

Accommodation is provided over three floors. Two entrance hallways lead into the ground floor; one to the east and one to the south serving the principal and the service staircases respectively. A family kitchen, sitting room, living room, office and games room occupy the ground floor. The first floor offers five double bedrooms (the master with ensuite facilities), a family bathroom and shower room. Three further bedrooms are found on the second floor.  The guest wing /guardian's quartiers, situated to the northside of the property, offers the nineth bedroom and a shower room.

Located just 1hr from the nearest ski station and 80 minutes from the vast sandy beaches of the Atlantic Ocean this substantial property could not be better located for an active family wishing to enjoy the pleasures of the ‘great outdoors'!  Pau airport can be reached in just 35 minutes; Biarritz airport 1hr 15mins and Toulouse & Bordeaux airports 2 hrs.

Viewing is highly recommended!
