A fully restored18th century stone Béarnaise house with a two bedroom guest cottage; a 11.5 x 5m heated swimming pool; a pool house with summer kitchen and w.c. and a private tennis court. The ensemble stands in the heart of the Jurançon wine region, in private mature grounds of 1.8 HA with views across to the Pyrénées mountains. Benefiting from complete privacy and tranquility and yet only 10 minutes from its local market towns of Jurançon and Gan.
The present owners extended the original stone house in 1990, to increase the liveable space and to add a large storage area, a double open fronted garage and a single open fronted garage. During this time, the entire property was re-roofed in local slate. The guest cottage was later built in 2004 to provide guest accommodation and a large workshop for the owner. This cottage was built from local stone and has a slate roof to blend perfectly with the main residence.
The gardens have been beautifully landscaped using local stone to create pathways and walled patios as well as a fenced area for the 5 dwarf goats. The heated swimming pool is situated to the south-east side of the main house and has a well equipped summer kitchen with the pool shower and wc next door. The tennis court is discretely located to the rear of the summer kitchen.
Situated just 15 minutes south west of the beautiful historic city of Pau ; 40 minutes from the ski slopes of the Pyrénées and just one hour from the lively cosmopolitan coastal resort of Biarritz : this property is ideally placed for a main residence or an all year round holiday home. Pau airport 35 minutes; Lourdes/Tarbes airport 45 minutes; Biarritz airport one hour; Toulouse airport 2 hours.

This property is currently owned by a gentleman who requires several workshops and garages for his hobbies. There is currently one guest cottage, but it would be relatively easily to separate the original Béarnaise house from its extension, to create a second independent dwelling should someone be looking for a property with two gîtes to run commercially.
Viewing is highly recommended as the location and presentation of this property is superb.
