Situated in a pretty village just 15 minutes from the historical market towns of Navarrenx, Sauveterre de Bearn, Saint Palais and Mauleon, this converted stone bergerie (sheep fold) enjoys a peaceful location in mature, planted gardens with an in-ground swimming pool.
The bergerie habitable space of approximately 235m2, including the independent gite, has been intelligently conceived. The accommodation is immaculately presented throughout and entirely modulable, for use as a three bedroom main house, with attached two bedroom guest wing, or a spacious five bedroom home.
Accommodation in the main house is centred around a comfortable sitting room with full height to the exposed ceiling beams, overlooked by a first floor galleried mezzanine. A ground floor bedroom with private en-suite shower room and WC extends from one side of the sitting room and a fully equipped dining kitchen, with feature fireplace and patio doors accessing the wrap-around south east facing covered terrace, from the other. From the kitchen, a guest toilet and a fully equipped utility room completes the ground floor level. Two further bedrooms, one with a newly installed private bathroom, can be found on the first floor, to either side of the mezzanine gallery.
A first floor guest annex, providing two bedrooms, a shower room, an open plan kitchen and sitting room with private balcony can be accessed via a separate entrance staircase, or via the first floor of the main house, making the space adaptable for accommodating additional guests or as a holiday rental gite. The village itself is located on the pilgrims’ route to Santiago, ‘le Chemin de St. Jacques de Compostelle’, providing the opportunity to compliment any potential summer rental income with a steady stream of B&B business from walkers outside of the summer season.
Outside, the pretty gardens are of a manageable size for a holiday home, mainly laid to lawn, with some mature planting, with a gated entrance and an in ground swimming pool, near to the terrace. A 30m2 garage and 6m2 cellar have also been integrated into the bergerie conversion, providing storage and secure, off street parking.
