Built 15 years ago, this superb, 3/4 bedroom oak-framed detached house also has a studio which could be converted into a letting property or granny flat. The property sits in grounds of over 4 acres, mainly pasture land with a smaller wooded section and enjoys fabulous views over the Jurançon wine country and the Pyrenees beyond.
The property has massive oak beams, a quality slate roof, a fully boarded roof and solid oak planked floors. Heating is provided by 2 modern Italian and Norwegian wood-burning stoves. Water heating is by electrical immersion heater. We understand that the septic tank conforms to current standards.
Lovers of nature will be delighted by the grounds which are a haven for wild birds and deer. Of special note are the cranes which circle over the house on their migration to the Donyana National Park. There is a small deciduous wood which is largely populated by chestnuts and oaks. Rainwater irrigation is in place fed by holding tanks large enough to irrigate a family-sized vegetable garden.
The nearest international airport is Pau-Pyrenees which is 30 km away, a drive of 35 minutes. The shops and restaurants of Pau are just 20 minutes’ drive. The nearest local shops are 7 km away at Monein. For families with children, the school bus passes the door. There are plenty of opportunities for walkers in the area, including the long distance trails such as GR10 and GR14. The beautiful seaside village of St Jean de Luz is an hour’s drive and skiing is available at Gourette and La Mongie.
