Located 15 minutes from Garlin and 30 mins from Pau is this authentic and charming home designed and constructed in the local Bearn-style and nestled amongst the greenery of the countryside, offering 123m² of living space and a garden of 1400m². Perfect for your new life in SW France.
As with the majority of properties constructed in the era (end of 19th Century-beginning of 20th), the layout is classic in design: two large rooms occupy the ground floor and are separated by the spacious entrance hall where the staircase sits. To the right is the kitchen, rustic in design and with country-style hearth and original sink. To the left is an identical space (30m²) which could serve as living room or bedroom and has a fireplace.
Upstairs, a large central landing serves two big bedrooms of 30m² each. One has been divided in two to create a bathroom and a study (or small bedroom). The loft space proposes more space to use as you desire.
Outside, there are 80m² of outbuildings (old stable and storage shed) and flanked by two lean-to's, which offer an excellent amount of space to store vehicles etc. or to install a workshop or other purpose.
This 100-year old building was constructed traditionally (pebble stone walls, slate roof) and is in excellent condition with no major work to be undertaken. The roof is almost new and all windows have been replaced by PVC frames and double glazing, as well as a new front door. A recent storage tank for hot water is powered by electricity. The septic tank system is up to current regulations at the time of publication. The wiring of the property will require updating and the current heating system is not very efficient (only the fireplace and old electric radiators are in place) and a general modernisation of the property should be envisaged.
If you're looking for a quiet life in the country and a return to a simpler way of life, the easy pleasures of the countryside, cultivating your own vegetables and harvesting fruit from your orchard (apple, plum, pear, cherry and fig are already in place), then come and visit this pleasant property. A perfect opportunity for a new life in France, it could also serve as a chambre d'hotes to obtain an income.
You will be 15 minutes from the A65 motorway and Garlin, in a quiet sector with commerce and services in proximity. The beautiful city of Pau is 30 mins away for airport, TGV, hospital, main shopping. The Spanish border, skiing and the Atlantic coast less than 2 hours away.
