This immensely appealing Chateau, with its former Coach House, has been professionally renovated and divided into eleven luxury apartments.
The ensemble is set within mature grounds in the heart of the Jurancon wine-producing region and offers spectacular views of the historic city of Pau and the Pyrenean mountains. The project is in its final stage with just the kitchens and the landscaping to be completed. These final decisions are open to negotiation with the future buyer and included within today's asking price.
The Chateau had suffered several years of gentle decline before it was rescued by its current owners some 20 years ago. Since 2006, the current owners have over-seen the extensive professional renovations which have rejuvenated this building and opened up its commercial value for either long term Professional lets or seasonal rentals.
The professional renovations included the complete re-roofing of the chateau and its former coach house; full re-wiring; complete re-plumbing and the installation of two new septic tanks; installation of two gas fired central heating systems; replacement double glazed hardwood windows and shutters; new high spec kitchens and bathrooms and the installation of a 17 x 4 m salt water swimming pool.
The Chateau offers four apartments plus the option of a fifth, third floor apartment or individual bed & breakfast suites. The former Coach House has been divided into six further apartments plus a guardian's studio apartment. The former one bedroom Conciergerie completes the ensemble.
French Character Homes is delighted to be marketing this estate, which offers a prospective buyer several different business opportunities; for example, seasonal or long term rentals or the possibility of running an events venue.
