Spacious ancient manor house in the Pyrenees  € 400000

Description

During its lifetime this large ancient French manor house has kept most of its authenticity and grandeur with its beautiful wooden floors, high ceilings throughout, moldings, marble fireplaces, exposed beams, carved wooden staircase.... Set in a private enclosed forested parkland of almost 2.8 hectares (7 acres) the maison de maître has bright spacious rooms throughout offering a welcoming entrance hall, a reception room and dining room each with a marble fireplace and an enormous kitchen with an imposing open fireplace. The original wooden staircase leads up to 1st and 2nd floors with seven bedrooms, two bathrooms and a huge attic suitable for conversion into addition rooms. With some refreshing and updating this grand property would become a magnificent dwelling for a large family or as a chambre d'hôte Within the grounds are two lovely old barns each on 2 floors totaling an area of over 400m² which could be transformed into a luxury Bed and Breakfast/gîte business. The property is located in the beautiful Béarn region, in the foothills of the Pyrénées, popular with tourists, walkers and cyclists.
