Property Description

Just 25 minutes from the beach, in verdant countryside, lies this early 17th century Seigneurial property, originally built as the household of the local Knight. At just under 400 m², including a truly impressive living room that runs the length of the house and a huge family kitchen, the main residence offers tremendous potential.

Ideally located in the south-west of France, near Bayonne (30 min), the Basque Country (Biarritz) 35 min and 25 minutes from the beaches of Seignosse / Hossegor, this historic "Chalossais" home none the less resides in the calm and peace of the countryside, surrounded by meadows.

For lovers of characterful houses, authentic oak beams, thick walls and the whisper of history, successive modernizations have not altered the historic character of the house. The owners have lovingly restored the property between 1980 and 2000, to include underfloor heating, electricity and plumbing meeting current standards, whilst simultaniously preserving the original features such at stone sinks, the original large stone fireplace and lime rendered walls. Some refreshing may be envisaged to bring finishings to current tastes, but over all the property is ready to move in.

The main house comprises on the ground floor a large open plan kitchen and dining room, a living room of over 90m², a sung with authentic stone fireplace, office, 5 bedrooms, bathroom, WC, wine cellar and utility room. Two seperate mezzanine levels offer a second office, a large games room overlooking the living room below, seperate WC, a bedroom and a family sized bathroom.
A large barn of 125 m² offers huge potential for anyone wishing to create additional gite accomodation. A bread oven and well complete the ensemble of exterior buildings.

The land, comprising 2555m², is planted with walnut, cherry, olive, peach, and kiwi trees.

Near to a charming village with 15th century church, schools and shops. Nearest large supermarket 5 km. Health center (2 doctors, nurses, physiotherapist) within 2 km.
Water recreation opportunities (2 km), horse riding / riding 500 meters, tennis 3 km, plenty of countryside or riverside walks along the river Adour.

The largest French surf resorts like Hossegor and Capbreton can be reached within 25 minutes, the ski resorts approximately 60 minutes. Less than 10 km to motorway.
