Manoir Dax (40)
- 250 m2
- 11 rooms
- 8 bedrooms
Set on the outskirts of a pretty village with a few amenities, this large property with plenty of character features offers tranquil places to relax in and out of the house. It is quite close to the Atlantic beaches, ideal for those who enjoy surfing and has easy access to Dax and the Pyrenees for walking or skiing. There are 4 hectares of land surrounding the house, a stable and an overgrown outdoor arena suitable for exercising horses or ponies. The house itself has been used as a secondary residence for the last 20 years and would benefit from some refurbishment and redecoration to realise its full potential.
The tree and shrub lined drive from the road winds round to a circular drive in front of the house with a fountain in the centre. Steps lead up to a large tiled verandah with shade on either side of the vestibule and front door. These are suitable for al fresco dining and lounging and there is door access to one of the lounges.
The lounge has the original wooden floor, built in cupboards and a large fireplace. A similar sized lounge also looking to the front has a built in TV unit and fireplace and doors to the terrace. There is a wide hallway with original tiling from which a wooden stair leads to the upper floors. There is another large room, currently used as an office but equally suited to a separate dining room. A downstairs cloakroom or toilet can be accessed in the corridor leading to the dining kitchen. This is a large well fitted space with modern units and worktops with integrated appliances. There is also a large fireplace with a wood burning stove and the table sits at the window overlooking the rear gardens. Outside steps from the corridor lead to the back of the property where there is an outbuilding which could be a summer kitchen, wood store and an area for machinery storage. The land which is set to grass extends from here.
Internally a stair leads to the basement which is dry and currently houses a cave as well as providing a laundry area and a large storage space.
The mezzanine floor has a shower room which could be refreshed. The first floor has a large bathroom with corner bath and built in storage. It is ensuite to the master bedroom with Windows on two sides, a wooden floor and feature fireplace. In the centre facing the fountain is an ornate shower room with a Juliette balcony which is ensuite to the second bedroom. A further bedroom with the original wooden floor completes this level. The hallway is spacious and bright and the stairs lead to a further 5 rooms, 2 of which are bedrooms with en suite facilities in the eaves, a further 1 has a built in sink cupboard, and another a dressing area. A smaller room in the centre suitable for a child completes the accommodation.
All in all a good house for a large family or lots of visitors. Plenty of space inside and outside and very private.
