Full description:

A fine manor house restored to a high standard and set on a ridge overlooking its manicured park and pastures with long reaching views over the hills of the Vic Bihl Pacherenc region.

The front door opens onto an entrance hall with a fine Bearnaise staircase with fine spindles and wide treads, terre cuite floors, and exposed beams. A glazed door and window on the half landing floods the area with natural light. The hallway distributes to the main living areas.

The kitchen has double exposition to the south and west and is well fitted with painted oak units and granite worktops. There is an open grill and recessed built in oven above the work surface. Doors lead out to a generous conservatory which creates an informal dining area and sunny living area overlooking the pool.

The dining room leads off the kitchen and is laid with 17th century floor tiles set into oak frames. The centrepiece is a 17th century carved fireplace in wild cherry detailed with the St Jacques of Compostella.

The elegant sitting room overlooks the magnificent park with a paved alley leading down to a period stone fountain. The sitting room features a fine stone fireplace, terre cuite floors and monumental oak beams.

From the entrance hall a glazed door opens into a passage leading to a ground floor cloakroom, the boiler room and a laundry. Doors open through to a magnificent ground floor bedroom suite with dual aspect and marble paved floors. There is a large attic area above this room which is currently used as storage space but which could easily be converted to create further accommodation.

On the upper level a passage distributes to each of the 4 bedrooms. Two bedrooms enjoy an en-suite shower room and the other two share a large bathroom. One of the bedrooms has recently laid oak floors and the others retain the original oak planks. There is a substantial attic which could be converted.

The outbuildings consist of two handsome bearnaise barns which are in keeping with the architecture of the main house. The pool house has a covered terrace which wraps around the south facade and creates a natural dining and barbecue area for the pool. The pool equipment and a workshop are housed in the interior.

The house is on the edge of a small village with an elegant yet discreet entrance announced by two stone pillars supporting fine wrought iron gates which open onto a long driveway flanked by an alley of oaks.

The driveway sweeps past the front of the house to the garage and stables which are set off to the north.

The nearest market town is a 5 minute drive and Pau lies 25 minutes to the south. Bordeaux is roughly 1hr 20 mins. Contact us for more details.
