This magnificent property was built between 1914 and 1918 by Jean Bartet, a famous tenor from the Opera in Paris. In good condition throughout, but in need of some refreshment, the château offers 525m² of living space, set in 6150m² of mature walled garden. It is located in a charming village with rich historical heritage, a few kilometres from Navarrenx.
Living accommodation is provided over three floors, the ground and first floors offering the same layout.
The main wrought iron doors open onto a spacious entrance hall leading to a small reception room, large living room with marble fireplace, dining room with marble fireplace, music room and a kitchen opening onto a beautiful stone terrace (70m²).
A beautiful wooden staircase provides access to the first floor with its large lounge/library, three good-sized bedrooms, each equipped with its own washroom (in the towers of the chateau), and a master suite with bathroom and dressing room.
The second floor offers a wide hallway serving three bedrooms, a bathroom and two further rooms. At the end of this beautiful gallery, lies a secret room (formerly an office) which has direct access to the attic which has ample head height (2 m 50 tall) to be converted if necessary.
All rooms are beautifully light and spacious - thanks to the chateau's elevated position, it enjoys the sunshine all day long.
The cellar houses a new boiler room, workshop, and wine cellar.
Shops are close, Orthez and Pau are down the road, and of course there are airports and TGV train terminals in the area: lots of sports activities are within reach. Ski slopes are close as well as a horse racing course in Pau.
