In a calm and wooded environment, close to the market towns of Mont de Marsan and Roquefort, lies this magnificent Belle Epoque Château, built in the desirable late Victorian Arcachonnaise style. Much loved and sensitively cared for, the property offers 499m² of renovated living space over three floors and is ready for you to put down your suitcase and make your mark on it's distinguished history. Packed with period features, light streams in from all angles and whilst the interior space is gracious and refined, it is every inch the family home too. This is a Chateau for people to live in comfortably, yet which simultaneously respects the original architecture.
From the front entrance at the Eastern side of the house, stone steps bring you to a pretty raised terrace and onwards through the original front door to a striking hall paved in decorative Carreaux de Ciment floor tiles.
From here one finds four generous reception rooms, the first being a bright wood paneled living room that is filled with sunlight and airiness thanks to its southern orientation and high ceilings. To the left of this sitting room one finds a south-east facing office, which at 19.5m², is ideal for anyone wishing to work from home. On the other side of the entrance hall, the remaining two reception rooms are composed of an elegant sitting room (26m²) and an impressive dining room of nearly 45 m².
A good sized kitchen with large fireplace is located to the west, and is ideal for moments of sharing good food and good company. Stepping out from the kitchen, one finds a pleasant terrace, protected from the strong summer sun by a leafy arbour, and ideal for al fresco family meals. A separate boot room with 2 WCs completes the ground floor.
On the first floor, a large landing leads off to a master suite with an independent bathroom, 5 large bedrooms each with a sink, a second bathroom, WC and a hallway.
On the top floor one finds another four bedrooms, one of which is located in the original Victorian tower, a spacious bathroom and large landing. This top level could very comfortably be converted into a self contained apartment.
In the Château gardens, a Tuscan style heated swimming pool, 12 x 6, awaits to enjoy moments of languid tranquility. The grounds of approximately 3.5 HA is fenced and planted with several centennial oaks as well as rose bushes and mature shrubs.
A shady pathway brings you - surprisingly perhaps - to a magnificent Landaise Maison de Maître dating to 1772 with its exterior walls and roof redone in 2018, together with a traditional barn. This building was originally the main property of the estate, replaced in the late 1800's by the Chateau. It will delight you with its original stonework and surprisingly intact decorative details, presenting a satisfying renovation oppourtunity for those in search of project. Moreover, it can itself be fully independent from the main property and has excellent Gite potential.
The roof of the main Chateau was redone in 2018 . A new pool liner was installed in 2019.
Located 10 minutes from all amenities, 20 minutes from Mont de Marsan and its SNCF train station, 10 minutes from the motorway, 60 minutes from Pau airport, 1h15 from Bordeaux, one hour from the beaches and 1h40 from Spain.
