Perched on the top on a hill on the outskirts of its pretty village, this spacious 18C Maison de Maître sits in 8 hectares of land with beautiful views of the neighbouring vineyards and distant Pyrenees mountains.

Built in 1781, this classic Maison de Maître with its slate roof, numerous shuttered windows and rear courtyard, has a privileged, elevated situation with enviable views of the rolling Jurançon vineyards and Pyrenees Mountains. The property further boasts a south facing façade; a long access driveway; beautiful landscaped gardens extending into private woodland; a heated salt-water swimming pool with mountain views from its terrace; and a rear terrace to escape the midday sun.

Accommodation extends over two floors with two large reception rooms, plus a ground floor Master bedroom, all facing south with direct access onto the terrace. The kitchen is situated to the east side with access to the utility room, the large walk-in pantry and the rear dining terrace.

An independent guest wing with two further bedrooms and a bathroom is located above the kitchen to the east side of the property.

The current family have continuously ameliorated the property over their 30 years of ownership with the additional of double glazed windows throughout; the installation of a low energy consumption wood pellet boiler to complement the oil fired central heating and an aerothermic pump to heat the swimming pool. Furthermore, the property benefits from its own natural water source which after feeding through a UV filter provides fresh drinkable water.

The beautiful historic city of Pau is just 20 minutes away and the ski slopes of the Pyrénées, the Atlantic coast and the Spanish border can be reached in less than an hour.
