Property Description

Sensitively restored period details combined with ample space for modern living create a wonderful sense of calm and well being in this authentic french Convent, dating to 1620. Lovingly renovated, with many details painstakingly brought back to life, offering a substantial 427m² of living space and a further 597m² of attic and outbuildings to convert.

There is no question that the current owners felt passionately about restoring this Capucin Convent, it is apparent in so many details. Gently awakened with loving patience, the property as it stands today is a delight to lovers of authenticity. The current living area of 310m² is fully renovated, and a further 117m² is ready for final restoration, primarily decoration and finishings.
Situated just off a bustling square with cafés, bistros and shops, in the heart of a pretty market town, a short drive takes you either to Marciac, popular for its world known jazz festival or Aire-sur-l’Adour, with rail and motorway access to Bordeaux and Paris.
Sitting strikingly behind a gated entrance, the substantial grounds are bordered by woodland to one side and the town on the other.
Upon entering the house, one of the most immediate sensations is of peace. Sunlight falls gently through windows, casting patterns on the terracotta floor tiles, which have been subtly indented with footsteps travelled over hundreds of years. Advancing out through French doors onto the South East facing terrace, the considerable gardens of 2.1ha, stretch before you waiting to be explored.
The original Convent dates to the early 17th Century, and sits on the pilgrims way of Saint Jacque de Compostelle. The property underwent extensive renovations over the past 15 years, including a complete re-roofing, rewiring, restored windows, and gas powered central heating.
Arranged over two floors, the residence offers eight bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 3 reception rooms and the original private chapel. On the ground floor one finds the kitchen, sitting room, dining room, office, utility room, 3 bedrooms, 2 shower rooms and one bathroom. On the second floor lie a further 5 bedrooms (some requiring renovation), together with 3 substantially sized rooms ready for you to put your mark upon them. The property comes with an annexed barn, together with two outbuildings attached to the former chapel.
Packed with striking features, such as a grand ceiling rose in the dining room and exquisite stucco work around the fireplaces, the location and size of this property lend itself perfectly to a dream family home where generations can gather to be together or an excellent business venture such as Chambre d’hote, Wedding Receptions or Boutique Hotel.
Is the home you have always dreamt of owning in France? This exceptional property lies ready for your call. 25 minutes drive from Aire-sur-Adour and motorway, 45 km from Mont-de-Marsan and just under 2 hours to Bordeaux and Toulouse. Nearest Airports - Pau-Pyrénées and Tarbes, both approximately 60 minutes drive. Coast 1h30. Ski Slopes 1h.30.
