Property Description

Perched just above its rural village, and within walking distance of the local auberge restaurant, stands this charming stone farmhouse with its three vast barns. The farmhouse was subject to a professional architect-led renovation in 2014 / 2015 and now offers spacious, and beautifully appointed, accommodation over two floors. The barns offer vast potential for development; one of which already has out-line planning permission for a five-bedroom gîte.

During the renovations, the farmhouse was extended to allow for the creation of a large family kitchen above which, two additional bedrooms were added and a roof terrace which serves as a perfect spot for enjoying the evening sunset over the Pyrenees mountains. The property was also fully re-wired; insulated and re-plumbed with a new sanitation system. The existing windows were replaced with new double-glazed units and new openings were created to maximise the light and allow access to the terrace and gardens. A large family kitchen; a family bathroom and two shower rooms were also installed. The floors were re-laid, levelled and covered in natural stone throughout and an energy-efficient wood burning stove was installed to supplement the electric heating. In addition, a 10x5m heated salt-water pool, with a child safety cover, was sympathetically positioned to the south-side of the grounds to benefit from the view of the Pyrenees mountains from its generous terrace.

The Ground Floor offers two sitting rooms which open onto the south facing terrace; a large dining kitchen and a guest cloakroom. The first floor offers a Master Bedroom with en-suite facilities and four additional double bedrooms which share a family bathroom and a shower room. Stairs from the first-floor lead into the attic (with the possibility to create further accommodation) where there is access to the roof terrace.

Situated less than 15 minutes from both the riverside market town of Orthez and the 14C fortified town of Navarrenx, and with good communication links to both the coast and the local airport, this property would serve equally well as a main or holiday residence. French Character Homes is delighted to be marketing this beautiful ensemble!
