You’re going to immediately be charmed by the geographic situation of this property, its authenticity, its large rooms, the peace and quiet and the magnificent views of the surrounding countryside and mountains.
This chateau has the beautiful symmetrical architecture of the Renaissance. Flanked by a cylindrical turret and two pavilions on the west facade. More striking features can be found in the dormer windows with stone struts and triangular mullioned windows on the lower floor with interior shutters.
Of particular interest, a lasting reminder of its family history remains in the stone slab above the front door, carved with the family’s coat of arms, Basque engravings and scenes of hunting, all recalling the long history of this once noble estate.
The magnificent 38 m2 entrance hall gives onto a 38 m2 dining room, a 37 m2 living room with a fireplace, an 11 m2 kitchen, another spacious 32 m2 kitchen, a 27 m2 study and a toilet.
A lovely staircase leads to a 32 m2 landing that gives onto 2 bedrooms ’20 m2 & 40 m2), a 19 m2 bathroom, an 11 m2 walk-in closet and another 8 m2 room.
The second floor has a 15 m2 landing that gives onto 2 bedrooms (22 m2 & 38 m2), a 3.3 m2 bathroom, a 34 m2 open space and a fifth bedroom with a washbasin.
The attic and the turret can be converted into additional bedrooms.
On the north side, separated by a stone wall with a nice iron gate, are the huge outbuildings. A part was converted into two self-contained gites (75 m2 & 98 m2) and into 3 loose boxes.
This property is in good overall condition, with oil-fired central heating and double-glazing everywhere. The west side of the roof was raised a few years ago. Drainage is individual and not up-to-code.
The environment of this impressive estate is absolutely extraordinary. Situated in the foothills of the Basque Pyrenees, a few kilometres from a town, each window has peaceful and pastoral views.
In a region rich in cultural and natural beauty, this chateau will charm anyone looking for an authentic retreat near the Pyrenees with easy access to countless outdoor activities.
