Gracious Napleon III Chateau, packed with original features, on a private 12 hectare estate.
Less than 15 minutes from the Bordeaux / Pau motorway exchange, this estate offers tremendous potential for business ventures, from a luxury B&B or gite to equestrian projects thanks to the existing stables, woodland and meadows.
Measuring approximately 400 m2, living accommodation is arranged over two floors. On the ground floor a central corridor leads off to 4 reception rooms, each with a striking original fireplace and decorative ceiling plaster work. Two kitchens, a shower room, WC and Utility room complete the ground floor.
Sweeping up the wooden staircase, one finds a large central corridor culminating in the original glass paneled art room. 6 bedrooms, a large library, 2 en-suite bathrooms and a further separate WC are also located on this floor. From here, one can access the immense roof space and former staff bedrooms which offer great potential for additional accommodation.
Major renovations were carried out progressively since the late 90’s / early 2000’s and the property is in overall good order. The roof was replaced in 1997, and a recently appointed Wood Pellet Central heating system (stocking capacity of 8 tonnes) provides warmth and abundant hot water at an economic rate.
The grounds are composed of 2 HA of gardens with a number of established trees, a decorative pond and fragrant wisteria bathing the south facing terrace in welcome shade. The remaining 10HA run to the rear of the property and would be ideal for an Equestrian project, (the famous race course at Pau is 50 minutes from the property). The vast stone outbuildings are composed of a former wine press, two stables, a workshop and garage. The buildings form an attractive U shape, and would be ideal transformed into reception venues should one be seeking to create a hospitality project.
