Marvellous, elegant 3 storey, 5 bedroom refurbished house located in a town near to all amenities, enjoying breathtaking views to the Pyrenees
This unique property was built in 1862 and is one of only two in the area which has remained in the same family for generations, before being sold to the mayor and used as a doctor's surgery and sold again in 2000 to the current owners, who commissioned a major refurbishment and have created a large family home.
Although in a town, the property is enclosed by a high wall and charming gardens with trees and shrubs. There are large terraces on the ground floor and a smaller one on the first floor where views to the Pyrenees can be enjoyed.
In the grounds there is a 2 bedroomed gite of 130m2 which faces the mansion.
Set over 3 levels and with a basement, this mansion boasts a wealth of original features - ornate cornices, stucco work on some walls, marble fireplaces, polished oak parquet flooring, stained glass windows, some original tiling in the basement, double wooden doors to the reception rooms and a beautifully preserved oak staircase.
It has a light and airy feel as many rooms have windows on 2 walls. Those closer to the road are double glazed eliminating traffic noise. There is lots of storage on each level and gas central heating throughout.
A security gated entrance opens to a large area suitable for parking many cars. Large double doors lead to an impressive entrance area with steps up to the ground floor. There are 2 stunning reception rooms which highlight many original features and French doors open to the veranda, a comfortable dining room with access to a modern well fitted kitchen with 2 island areas, a cloakroom and WC.
The feature oak staircase passing stained glass windows leads to a spacious first floor landing from which there are 2 large bedrooms with en-suite facilities and walk in wardrobe areas. There is an elegant office and a further formal living room with French doors to a smaller terrace plus
a small kitchen with fridge, coffee making facilities and microwave.
On the second floor are 3 further spacious bedrooms, one with en-suite facilities and a family bathroom, walk in wardrobe and a large linen or storage room. A similar oak staircase from the entrance area leads to the extensive basement, which also has double doors to the garden.
There are a number of rooms housing the services, a storage room, laundry room, a temperature controlled cellar racked for wine storage.
The central large area is used as a gym with its own power shower and leading to an indoor pool, which requires some finishing work.
Finally there is a summer kitchen or games room with a working fireplace for barbecue.
The international airport Tarbes-Lourdes-Pyrenees airport is 10 minutes away from which there are 2 flights daily to Paris. The motorway network is only a few kilometres away making the Atlantic beaches reachable in just over an hour.
