Chateau Le Bedat is an exceptionally pretty property providing 480m² of renovated living space whilst maintaining its authenticity and soul. Together with a caretaker's house, barns with planning permission and 3.7 Ha of parkland, it lends itself perfectly to a business venture or delightful family home.
Built in 1680 as the Fiefdom for Jean-Antoine de Lalande, Seigneur of Labatut, it combines a pleasingly light and symmetrical architecture with a classic and appealing interior layout. The flow from one room to the next, via original Baroque doors, together with ample daylight streaming into each corner, makes the living space at once elegant and inviting.
Set back from the road and standing proudly behind a cast iron gated frontage, one enters the chateau to discover on the ground floor a light entrance hall, 3 pretty reception rooms with waxed parquet floors and French doors leading to an exterior terrace, an intimate dining room, a large formal dining room with an impressive original stone fireplace, a grand cloakroom with access to WC and Shower, a kitchen, breakfast room and scullery. All rooms have been renovated and retain their original cachet.
An impressive staircase with decorative cast iron bannister leads to the first floor which is composed of 4 light and elegantly proportioned bedrooms, an art deco inspired bathroom and a Jack and Jill shower room with WC. The original ‘coeur de pin’ floors, large panelled windows overlooking sweeping lawns and hand crafted Baroque cupboards are amongst many of the lovely authentic details to still be found in the Chateau. A second staircase, this time in carved wood, takes one to a further four bedrooms and two shower rooms with WC. In addition, the attic offers a further 80m² of convertible space on the third floor..
The grounds make up a graceful and extremely well maintained park of 3,7ha, planted with 200 year old plane trees, bright magnolias and classic rose beds, a wood, a winery of 500m² that has been granted planning permission for conversion into 4 appartments, a guardians house, an orangery, a further separate barn, a double garage and a well.
The owners renovated the main property from 2003 onwards. The upgraded electrics, plumbing, roof, central heating and wood framed double glazed windows have brought this historic property up to modern standards without compromising its character, providing a warm and comfortable living environment. Some final touches need completing such as freshening up the interior paintwork but overall it is a very well maintained property with great appeal..
Less than 20 minutes from the Bordeaux / Pau motorway exchange, this estate offers tremendous potential for business ventures, from wedding receptions, hotellry, restaurant, B&B and Gites or simply to provide a lovely family home for large families.
10 minutes to the desirable market town of Peyrehoade, 20 minutes Salies de Béarn and less than 30 minutes from the roman spa town of Dax with direct fast rail to Paris. The Landaise beaches can be reached within 40 minutes and 90 minutes to the mountains.
