Property Overview

FCH952

For Sale

 This picturesque and versatile property with adjoining 1 bedroom guest apartment, has much to offer. Referred to as one of the oldest houses in the village, with origins dating to the 18th century, it is packed with lovely original features from Carreaux de Ciment floor tiles on the ground floor and wooden floorboards in the bedrooms to a large functioning stone fireplace in the dining room. It is a beautiful and light-filled home serving perfectly as a year round family home, a lock up and leave holiday home or as a business option, thanks to its integrated but fully independent guest accomodation.  

 Situated in the very heart of a popular village just 25 mins north of the historic market town of Orthez with high speed rail service to Bordeaux and Paris, and within easy reach of both the coast and the Pyrenean ski slopes.

An architect-led renovation and a great level of care and maintenance from the vendors is visible throughout.  A spacious drawing room, comfortable  dining room with a log burning stove and hand crafted kitchen each present easy access to the established gardens through glass doors that fill the property with light. The first floor offers three good sized double bedrooms, an individual WC and a family bathroom.  

The main house connects from the dining room to a utility area housing the boiler room (gas central heating, boiler installed 2013) and a separate WC, through to the Guest annex which offers a ground floor double bedroom with private terrace and view to the rear gardens; A bathroom with walk in shower and WC, an open plan, double height reception room and a spacious fitted kitchen complete the guest annexe. From the reception room, glass doors lead onto the swimming pool and a stone terrace. The pool was installed in 2009, the pump system was replaced in 2019 and a new electrolyzer fitted in 2022. A professional re-rendering of the guest annexe facade (enduit), was undertaken in 2020. The main house was painted in 2014 and any parts showing signs of wear & tear were repainted in 2020. All the shutters were repainted in 2020.

Finally, a good sized barn serves as a workshop area and houses the swimming pool's pump and filtration system. .

The grounds have been thoughtfully laid out by a landscape architect, and a trusted housekeeper and gardener are available year round to help with maintenance.

The property would appeal to anyone looking for a large family home with an adjoining guest annex, or a turn key holiday home. The charming hilltop village itself offers a good restaurant, and a well respected museum. A short drive to the riverside town of Amou provides easy access to local amenities, including regular markets, boulangeries, good restaurants, doctors and supermarket. The Chalosse region of France is well loved for its gourmet eating, pretty rolling landscape and gentle way of authentic French life.

Location: 25 minutes from high speed rail line at Orthez; approx 60 minutes from Atlantic Ocean; Pau Airport 45 minutes; Biarritz Airport 70 minutes; Proximity to a number of pretty market towns and tourist sites including Hagetmau (14 minutes), Amou (8 minutes), Saint Sever (20 minutes), Montfort-en-Chalosse (20 minutes), Dax and Mont de Marsan (both 40 minutes)
