Detailed description

Built in 1885, this super property of 410m² is ready to move into today, albeit with a couple of rooms still to finish to your taste. There is also a partially renovated guest cottage, which could be rented out or transformed into professional consulting rooms or office space. At the back of the house, there is a large pool, a sun terrace and a barbecue area set in beautiful landscaped gardens and grounds of 0.7 acres.

The ground floor of the main house has a wonderful open plan sitting room/dining room/kitchen area, along with two additional reception rooms and an office. Most of the rooms have French doors which open out onto a dining terrace overlooking the pool and grounds.

The first floor comprises a master-bedroom suite with an en suite shower room and access to an outside gallery overlooking the pool and grounds. There are four further bedrooms on this floor and two bathrooms. There is also a separate terrace on this floor with plumbing in place for a jacuzzi and a sauna. On the second floor, there is another bedroom, two more rooms which have been partially renovated and a dance studio/gym equipped with a dance bar and a floor-to-ceiling mirror.

The two-storey guest cottage has two reception rooms on the ground floor and two bedrooms on the first floor. Some renovating and decorating is still required, but once complete, the cottage would be ideal to use for short-term or long-term lets or as a consulting room or office.

The outbuildings at the back of the house comprise three enormous open-plan rooms, one of which is fitted out as a function room with a professional dance floor. There is also a climate-controlled wine cellar – and a stable for three horses at the far end of the outbuildings.

Shaded by mature trees and exotic palm trees, the property is set in enclosed grounds of 2,954m² (0.7 acres) with a gorgeous swimming pool (12m x 6m), a barbecue area and a functioning well.

This wonderful maison-de-maître is ready to move into straight away. It is ideal if you are hoping to live within easy commuting distance of Pau or Lacq - and perfect for a family because all the town’s amenities, including local schools, are just a short stroll away.

Alternatively, the property could be transformed into a wellness centre, a boutique hotel, a chic Bed and Breakfast business or an events venue for hosting weddings and corporate functions, upmarket leisure activity holidays, yoga retreats, dance courses, Murder-Mystery weekends… The adjacent two-bedroom guest cottage could either be rented out or lived in by the owners if the main house is going to be used for business purposes, or it could be transformed into a consulting room or office.

This gorgeous property is in the delightful bastide town of Navarrenx. It is midway between several ski resorts in the Pyrénées - and surfing and family beaches on the Atlantic coast. The verdant Basque Country is a short drive away and the Medieval market town of Oloron-Ste-Marie is just 25 minutes away, where you will find numerous shops, a theatre and a twice-weekly farmers’ market. If you have a family, the excellent schools in the area will leave you spoilt for choice…
