This substantial 18C Maison de Maître is located at the end of a quiet lane, just above its rural farming village within a 10 minutes drive of the riverside market town of Oloron Ste Marie. This authentic house benefits from a superb elevated position with commanding views of the Pyrenees mountain range.
The property retains a considerable amount of its period features including its wide period staircase; original fireplaces, doors and wonderful wide parquet floors in the bedrooms. The house has served as a holiday home for its French owners for the past thirty years or so and has been well maintained. The south façade of the roof was relaid in natural slate in 2010 and its façade re-rendered in 2011.
This substantial property offers 380m2 of living accommodation over its two floors. It is accessed via an attractive stone archway leading into a rear courtyard, which neighbours the local farmer’s hay barn. The ground floor offers a kitchen, a dining room with period fireplace; a large living room with its original fireplace, a library and a guest cloakroom. An adjoining garage and the boiler room completes this level. Three staircases serve the first floor; the original main staircase leading from the principle entrance hallway, the second from the sitting room and the service staircase leading from the kitchen. The first floor offers seven double bedrooms and two bathrooms. Should further accommodation be required, the attic could be renovated.
The property is situated in an area of natural beauty, yet within easy reach of plenty of outdoor activities within the foothills of the Pyrenees mountains. Oloron-Sainte-Marie with all its amenities, shops, restaurants, cinema, annual music festivals, is only a 10 minute drive away. The Atlantic coast around Biarritz can be reached in just under a 1.5 hour drive and in less than an hour one can be skiing in La Pierre Saint Martin, Issarbe or Gourette … the ideal all year round holiday home !
