Superb Maison de Maître offering 362m² of constructed surface area, with additional Béarnaise farmhouse and barn, dating from the sixteenth, eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Built on 5300m² of land and around a main courtyard, it is located just 2km from the medieval town of Orthez. In a dominant setting, it offers splendid panoramic views of the Pyrenees.
The main house was completely renovated in 2007 (electricity, plumbing, insulation, heating). On the ground floor, it is composed of a large entrance hall, living room, kitchen/dining room, utility room, guest cloakroom, and boiler room. The first floor offers three large "en suite" rooms, one with a dressing room and a single bedroom. The attic could easily be converted to increase the living space : water and electricity have already been installed.
Outside, there are two driveways to the property, several terraces and a beautiful park allowing you to take advantage of the warmer days.
There are numerous outbuildings : an old farmhouse (140 m² on two levels), barn (112m² on two levels) and a storeroom of 43 m². A dovecote from 1717 with porch, a pigpen and a henhouse complete the set.
This house, currently referenced for the quality of its guest rooms, offers the opportunity to develop a chambres d'hôtes/gite business. With it's historical background (once the actual residence of the Duke of Wellington during the last stages of the Peninsular Campaign) and its location (45 minutes from Biarritz, 60 minutes from French and Spanish ski resorts, 15 minutes from the golf course at Salies-de-Béarn), it represents an interesting investment.
