Originally designed and built in 1811, the château offers four large reception rooms, a large well appointed kitchen and nine luxury bedroom suites, the majority of which offer views across the private lake.
The estate also offers a one bedroom guest cottage (150m2), a summerhouse (200m2 on two levels), a large barn / maintenance area (397m2) and an animal / plant store (150m2). The ensemble is set in its own gated grounds with a private lake to the foreground, home to swans, turtles, ducks and a host of visiting wildlife.
The château has recently been renovated to an exceptional standard to include complete rewiring and replumbing, new hard wood double glazed windows, a geothermic heating (and cooling) system, solid marble slabs on the ground floor and solid oak floors upstairs.
The estate is offered for sale fully furnished with luxury finishings such as bespoke velvet curtains, chandeliers, paintings and quality furniture to include Chesterfield sofas and armchairs, oriental wool / silk rugs and a large snooker table.
The château is powered by a geothermic pump, an ecologically sound choice, providing heating and hot water as well as warming the swimming pool. The swimming pool is of bespoke design with a natural granite surround, and measures 20 x 7.5 metres. Night-lighting and external speakers are in situ.
The estate includes 14 hectares of land: 6 acres of grounds immediately surrounding the château and 12 hectares of woodlands and fields opposite. The château is back-dropped by a Jurançon vineyard, historically part of the château's heritage.
The ensemble is sensitively set back from the main road to allow privacy but also allows ease of access to all amenities. Its neighbouring village is just 9 kilometres away and offers all necessary amenities. Ideal location for those in search of peacefulness rather than complete isolation.
There is the possibility to purchase the property fully furnished with luxury finishings such as bespoke velvet curtains, chandeliers, paintings and quality furniture to include Chesterfield sofas and armchairs and Oriental wool / silk rugs etc.
The historic city of Pau can be reached in 35 minutes and its airport is a mere 30 minutes driving distance. Motorway access 25 minutes. Pyrenees mountains for ski, approx. 1 hour as are the beaches of Biarritz.
