This unique 17th Century Château, located at the end of its private driveway, surrounded by lush countryside, offers 550m² of accommodation, along with rustic French barns and a substantial loft space which could all be converted into more habitable space.
The Château was originally built in 1680, and remained within the same French family for over 300 years. The property has been lovingly restored in recent years and benefits today from a central heating system, updated plumbing and modern electrics, along with elegantly decorated rooms.
This country home is bursting with charm with its polished wood paneling, authentic oak floors, beautifully restored staircases and grand reception area. Every detail added to the property was thoughtfully put together. Even the corner stones of the main house were placed so that the building is perfectly aligned with the equinox. Having served as a family home for over 300 years, the property provides formal elegance with modern comforts.
Living accommodation comprises 5 reception rooms, 8 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 3 en-suites, a utility, and scullery. Alongside the main Château, you will find « La Pigeonnaire », a charming 2 bedroom guardian’s cottage which currently serves as an idyllic gîte for holiday makers.
In addition, there is a large two-storey barn, which so far has provided the perfect area for entertaining, along with its covered dining terrace that overlooks the surrounding fields, and a 10m x 5m salt-water swimming pool. Next to the barn is a pool house with its own original bread oven. There is also an open barn that currently serves as a woodstore, and a decorative kiosk close to the vegetable garden. The grounds comprise woodland, pasture and a stunningly maintained garden with 2 spring water wells.
The property is located within the commune of Sainte Colombe, a charming village with a great local school and a recently renovated tennis court. The market town of Hagetmau, known for its Olympic-sized swimming pool, is only a short drive, where you can enjoy the local markets, restaurants and bars, and a stroll through the historical centre. The area is rich in culture and history, and the market town of Saint Sever, with its UNESCO World Heritage Site Abbey, is also only a 10 minute drive.
Just over an hour’s drive to the stunning Atlantic Coast, or the Pyrenees mountain range, the Château is located in one of the most sought after areas of France. The relaxed lifestyle, the accessibility to the outdoors, and the unbelievable gastronomy, make this place a real gem. The property would make the ideal family home, but also has the potential to run one to several businesses. Pau, Lourdes and Biarritz airports are also all easily accessible.
