Located in a pretty village just 10 mins south-east of the beautiful city of Pau is this 19th century farmhouse property, typical in style of this region called Bearn. Set in the countryside yet not completely isolated, the solid main house has 180m² of living space whilst the property consists of almost two hectares (5 acres) of land (3500m² of which may be constructed upon) with a stream, two stone-built barns of 120m² & 50m² as well as three concrete outbuildings. Finally, the property has 4 hectares (10 acres) of forested land not attached. Perfect for your new life in the south-west of France with the possibility to create a competitive gite business.
This splendid and authentic farmhouse with it's coats of armour above the entrance door opens to reveal a beautiful oak staircase. The 45m² sitting room proposes relaxation and cosy evenings next to the wood burner after a day skiing at Gourette. The 22m² kitchen, once the wine press, is fully fitted. A corridor serves a toilet and a 17m² bedroom with a private 5m² washroom with walk-in shower. The kitchen has direct access out to the garden and courtyard.
Upstairs are two spacious bedrooms of 25m² & 33m² and a third of 16m² as well as a washroom with walk-in shower, storage spaces and an open view of your land.
The garden has a well with anautomated pump feeding a storage tank which allows watering of the garden and also serves the laundry room which is located in the first barn, which measures 50m² and can serve as a double garage. The second barn is 120m², also built from local stone and which possesses an upper floor of the same size. Finally, a wood shelter completes the property on this side of the courtyard.
Further on, towards the stream which crosses the property, are three concrete structures totalling 130m² of space which can house any farm equipment or as you wish. To the rear of these buildings is an electric pump for obtaining water for irrigation.
A solid bridge allows you to cross the stream and enter the 1.6 hectares of land where you could construct 'non-permanent' structures such as yurts or mobile homes. A right of way allows you to access the woods included with the property.
Heating is provided by electric radiators and the wood burners will provide ample heat. The roof is covered in slate. The walls are constructed of stone. There is splendid tiling and wooden flooring throughout. There is double glazing on the ground floor with one pane of glass only upstairs. The mix of wood and stone promotes excellent natural insulation. The property is connected to the sewage mains.
You will be 10 mins from the lively city Pau with its castle quarter and sporting and concert arenas. Three minute drive from a commercial zone, 15 mins from A64 motorway taking you to Biarritz in 1h30 and Toulouse in 2h. Skiing is 1h15 away.
