Classic 17th century farmhouse of character at edge of village with two large stone barns, salt-water swimming pool and Pyrenees views
This charming renovated farmhouse offers quiet and tranquil living yet is only 30 minutes walk to the centre of the lovely village of Sauveterre-de-Bearn. The two barns are quite large with solid stone walls and ready for a nice gite conversion with a large and private garden area. The property sits on a very quiet lane opposite open fields, across which there are lovely views of the Pyrenees .The large, 12m x 6m salt-water swimming pool is set in a very attractively landscaped garden which is surrounded by mature hedges for privacy. The home retains its period charm with exposed stone walls, stout oak beams, and two original stone sinks, yet is very comfortable with thick walls to keep cool in the summer and modern gas central heating for the winter.
The ground floor offers a large living room with oak beams and a traditional fireplace, a modern kitchen with plenty of storage, an oak-beamed dining room, a large utility room, and a wc.
On the first floor you will find three bedrooms, a smaller office/dressing room/child’s bedroom, and a full bathroom with bath and shower.
The first barn is attached to the home; the upper floor has been fitted with windows for easy conversion into living space.
The second barn is linked to the home by a stone archway and is currently used as a garage. There are more outbuildings attached to this.
The countryside is some of the prettiest around, with green rolling hills overlooked by the Pyrenees. The popular town of Salies-de-Bearn is only 10 minutes, and the Atlantic beaches only 60 minutes. The closest airports are in Pau and Biarritz (each about 60 minutes) and there are two train stations within 20 kms.
