The property comprises the main house of 225m², which has three bedrooms - and an adjoining guest cottage/gîte of 97m², which has four bedrooms. Should you wish to use the property as one huge house with seven bedrooms, it would be relatively easy to create internal access between the two buildings on each of the three floors.
From a quiet country lane, a short tree-lined entrance drive leads down to the property. There is a double garage for covered parking, as well as an outdoor parking area in front of the main part of the farmhouse.
From the parking area, a paved path leads up to the front door. To the left of the path is a south-facing courtyard with a sunny dining terrace, as well as a covered seating area where you can dine in the shade.
The front door of the farmhouse opens into an entrance hall with a WC and a traditional wooden staircase to the upper floors. To the left of the hall is a spacious kitchen, which has a small dining area, a large pantry and a door out to the garden and swimming pool. Beyond the kitchen is a large sitting room with a stone fireplace and wood-burning stove. Huge curved French doors open to the dining terrace and walled courtyard.
To the right of the entrance hall is a large utility room, which leads into a wonderful dining room with a huge open fireplace. This room has a door to the outside. Adjacent to the dining room is a room of 14m², which could be used as an office.
The first floor of the farmhouse comprises a study/office area on the landing, a library area, a master-bedroom suite with a dressing room and en suite shower room, a second bedroom with a decorative marble fireplace and a family bathroom. There is also a cloakroom/storage room which could be knocked through to connect the main part of the house to the guest cottage/gîte.
The second floor of the farmhouse is currently used as a sitting room/games room with a bar area, but which could be transformed into a lovely bedroom suite for a teenager. Adjoining this room is unconverted loft space, which could be used to create an additional bedroom (permission required).
The guest cottage/gîte is accessible from the outdoor parking area via an east-facing dining terrace. Arched doors open into a large main room comprising a sitting area with a fireplace and wood-burning stove, a dining area and a kitchen area.
The first floor comprises a bedroom with an en suite shower room, a second bedroom and a family bathroom. The second floor has two further bedrooms, one of which has an en suite bathroom.
The farmhouse is set in of 1.45 hectares (3.6 acres) of meadows and woodland. Behind the property is a gorgeous swimming pool (12m x 6m) with a sun terrace and panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. There is ample space for keeping one or two horses on the grounds - and you may even like to think about creating a summer kitchen area, a barbecue area, a children's play area, a boules piste, treehouses...
The farmhouse is five minutes away from a picture-postcard village with a primary school, library, post office and a "dépôt de pain" where you can collect your fresh baguettes! A little further on, the delightful bastide town of Navarrenx has exciting watersports on the nearby "gave" (river), as well as numerous cultural and sporting activities for you - and your visitors - to participate in throughout the year. The town also has a great choice of lively bars and restaurants, shops and boutiques - and there is even a bilingual school (French/English). The International School of Béarn in Pau is just 35 minutes away from the property.
The Medieval market town of Oloron-Ste-Marie is also easily accessible, where you will find several hypermarkets, a hospital, a theatre and a twice-weekly farmers’ market. The many ski resorts in the Pyrénées are about an hour away to the south - and the surfing and family beaches on the Atlantic coast are about 70 minutes away to the west.
