Property Overview


For Sale

Once the home of the local Judge, and later serving as the Revolutionary Tribunal during the French Revolution, the origins of this house are said to go back to the very earliest times of Saint Sever's rich history to the 1400's when it was the first house one encountered after entering the city walls. In its current incarnation, the property dates the 16th Century, and is a delight to anyone looking for authenticity and character. From beautifully moulded fireplaces to the wide oak floorboards, curved staircase and victorian floor tiles, there is tremendous potential here to create a truly elegant home in the heart of an increasingly popular market town.

The major works to the property have been completed, consisting of a new roof in 2014, insulation in 2019, double glazing throughout, and gas central heating and rewiring circa 2004. This has served as a much loved family home, and would now benefit from some refreshment to the overall decoration and the facade.

Upon entering, a north facing reception room currently serves as a study. Along the hallway, through 18th century glass panelled doors, one finds a sunny open plan kitchen and living room that sweeps onward to a good sized courtyard, creating a lovely indoor / outdoor feel. A downstairs WC completes the ground floor.

Ascending the striking wooden staircase to the first floor, one finds two vast bedrooms, each with original stucco fireplaces together with a family bathroom. On the second floor, another 2 good sized double bedrooms and a shower room complete the living accomodation.

The property has a cheerful, light atmosphere with sun streaming in through the windows. In the very heart of this popular town, a vibrant weekly market, shops, restaurants, cafés and the cinema can be reached in just minutes making it an ideal "lock up and leave" holiday home or an excellent investment as a first time purchase or rental project. 

1 hour from the ocean, 90 minutes to Bordeaux, 50 minutes to Pau Airport, 15 minutes to the train station at Mont de Marsan.
