No expense was spared in building this lovely property which overlooks its pool and parkland.
Located just 5 minutes outside the busy town of Aire sur l'Adour, it has potential for BandB and to convert the outbuilding to a gîte.
No expense was spared by the Parisian who built this “Île de France” style home in the 1970s. The house is approached via automatic gates, along a gravelled driveway to a wide parking area between the house and the outbuilding. The front door is approached by several steps, and opens in to a spacious hallway. Ahead of you double doors open into the large, light and airy living room. This is a lovely room, approx 50m2, with two sets of French doors opening onto the south-facing patio and another set opening onto the east terrace. It has a large wood burner set into the stone fireplace, oak parquet flooring and fine carved Italian-style coving. There is a large kitchen/breakfast room (approx. 25m2), with fitted oak units. On the ground floor there is one double bedroom, and another large room which could be a double bedroom but is currently an office, a WC and bathroom. Marble stairs lead to the landing where there are a further four double bedrooms, a separate WC and a recently-installed shower room with Italian-style walk-in shower. The bedrooms all have oak parquet floors. The house has new double-glazed windows throughout and has oil-fired central heating.
A terrace wraps around 3 sides of the house, accessed from the kitchen and the living room. Steps lead from the south-facing terrace down to the 10m x 5m terraced swimming pool (salt) which is solar heated and has a solar-heated shower. There is a spacious covered seating area, a pool house and a well beside the pool. The grounds are level with a variety of mature trees. There is a large kitchen garden and also an enclosure with kennel for a dog.
Opposite the house the outbuilding comprises covered parking for two cars, a large workshop, and two store rooms, plus a room in the roof (low headroom). There is great potential to convert this building into a gite.
The house is only 5km outside the centre of the bustling town of Aire sur l’Adour which has a good range of individual shops in the centre as well as large supermarkets on its outskirts. It is conveniently only a 2Km drive to the junction of the A65 Bordeaux-Pau road. There is a 9-hole golf course at Eugenie les Bains, a 15-minute drive. The larger town of Pau can be reached in 40 minutes while the nearest airport with UK links is Tarbes-Lourdes, only 98km (approx 1h). while Bordeaux is 161km (approx 1h30). This is a stunning property which must be viewed to be fully appreciated.
