An Art Deco Neo-Basque estate

Located in a 10.5-ha park, the estate provides a dramatic view over the mountain range

Built in the 1920’s, this luxurious former home of a famous fashion designer sprawls over 10.5 ha, just five minutes away from Biarritz city centre. The main residence, with 850 sq m of living space, charms by its neo-Basque splendor with a touch of Spain. “Perfectly restored in keeping with its original spirit about ten years ago, this large home strikes by its warm and sober decoration, points the Barnes Côte Basque agency.” With dramatic views over the mountains and the countryside, the main house features a double living room with a fireplace, a library, a dining room, eight master bedrooms with their own bathroom and dressing, a quiet patio, two staff bedrooms and a vast basement, equipped with a professional kitchen. Five other buildings offer a guesthouse with 250 sq m of living space, a house designed for the children featuring four bedrooms and three bathrooms, a caretaker’s house, a staff home and an independent studio. Other commodities include an infinity edge pool with terrace and pool house, a tennis court and a fitness center. The estate sits upon a beautiful garden with a lawn, a pond, many trees and sculptures. Partially approved for hotel use, this unique ensemble provides all kind of opportunities.

Price : entre 13 et 17 millions d’euros
