Rarely a property can be found offering so many possibilities with a very affordable entry price. Ideal as a primary residence or equally for holiday rentals. Beautiful and expansive grounds surrounding the property with its imposing features and practical design combining home and agricultural buildings. The home over two levels offers a simple layout of dining, lounge room and kitchen on the first floor and two/three bedrooms on the first floor plus large shared bathroom. The condition is good but some freshening up is required. Beautiful wooden floorboards. Open the windows and admire the stunning views over your gardens and to the nearby mountains. Both the barn and cow shed are in good condition and could simply be retained in their current state for agricultural use or with such a vast space can equally be considered for expansion of the existing living space and could equally be interesting for conversion to event space/arts and crafts workshop/yoga retreats.

A typical Bearnais rural maison dating to the 18th century with subsequent additions over time to cater for agricultural activities. In total the property offers some 600m2 of floor space whilst the main house only comprises a small portion of around 135m2. For the past 10-years the property has been lovingly maintained by the same owner and utilised as a secondary holiday residence. The owners spent significant time and money on a project to significantly increase the living space by converting the barn and demolishing the cow shed to provide a huge terrace to admire the wonderful views of pastures and mountains. Owing to changing circumstances the project was not started however the work done can provide an excellent starting point for a new owner. The hard work has already been done in the gardens with a grand tree lined entrance, extensive gardens with established fruit trees and organised vegetable patch and green houses. The property also features a well which used to be the central water gathering point for neighbouring properties and is still in use today.

The property comprises 7 amalgamated land parcels for a total of 4,807m2, gently sloping. The property is in a rural setting however close to the pretty village of Rivehaute and only around 15 minutes drive to the larger towns of Mauleon and Saint Palais.

The main house is over two levels split as follows.
Ground Floor (72m2 approx):
Entrance 2.2m x 4.4m = 9.68m2
Kitchen 3.2m x 3.9m = 12.48m2
Dining (with fireplace) 6.3m x 4.3m = 27.09m2
Loungeroom (with fireplace) 5.1m x 4.6m = 23.46m2
First floor (63m2 approx):

Main Bedroom 5m x 4.6m = 23m2
Second Bedroom 4m x 3.4m = 13.6m2
Corridor (joining wall with barn) 7.4m x 0.8m = 5.92m2
Third bedroom (study) 3.3m x 3.1m = 10.23m2
Bathroom with shower and toilet 4m x 2.5m = 10m2

Cow Shed:

8m x 9.5m (each floor) = 152m2

Barn (320m2 approx):

Ground floor 9.5m x 13.6m = 129.2m2 open storage area plus room of 27m2 comprising store room, washing room and toilet.
1st floor (ramp and stairs access) = 9.5m x 17.2m = 163.40m2

TOTAL: 607m2 approx
