A traditional gascon farm house with well proportioned rooms and over 10 acres of land including formal gardens, paddocks, two barns and woodland. Standing high on a ridge with sweeping views over the Adour valley and the Pyrenees beyond, the property is just a few minutes from the small town of Plaisance, and easily accessible to Pau, Toulouse and the coast. Beautifully renovated, the farm house blends modern bathroom and kitchen fittings with many period features, creating a sizeable family home with entertaining terraces, an outdoor pool and exceptional views. There is parking in the original barn now used as a carport and a second set of gates to facilitate in and out driving. The long barn has hard standing on the ground floor and a full first floor with potential.
