This property is located in the Saubusse area.
The village of Saubusse which is renowned for its thermal centre is located close to one of the main bridges along the river Adour.
Saubusse offers easy access to Dax and its Tgv station which is 20 minutes away and to Hossegor which is about a thirty-minute drive. The airport of Biarritz is 45 minutes away.
The property is located on the riverbank close to Barthes.
This locality has the advantage of being far from any busy roads. The pathway is tarmacked but access is reserved for locals, or for walkers and cyclists.
The main property is built in stone and is an old fisherman’s cottage dating back to the 17th century and was renovated in 2014. The property is filled with light and offers all modern comforts.
We enter the door directly into the kitchen, passing under the covered car porch. The kitchen has been entirely fitted and equipped and is spacious enough in size for the family to eat here.
Leading straight off from the kitchen, there is a pleasant living-area which has been divided into two separate parts by a fireplace which is open on both sides. One side of the living room is used as a formal dining room. The other –an extension to the original property which blends perfectly with the period features of the main house- is used as a spacious reception/television room which views to the garden, terrace and pool through the French windows.
On the ground-floor the property benefits from a downstairs bedroom and a shower-room.
The first floor is divided into a study area and a mezzanine which overlooks the main reception room, and a hallway which leads to two bedrooms and a bathroom.
One of the most impressive features of the property is the eastern façade which has been replaced with glass from floor to ceiling and floods the property with light. The blend of stone, wood and glass, along with these spacious full-length windows, lend the property a warm and contemporary ambiance which is extremely welcoming.
To the rear of the property there is an outbuilding which has been converted into a three-bedroom appartment on the first floor. Here we find three rooms and a shower room which has been recently completed. This space is perfect for older children, guests, or possibly for the development of an air bnb or chambre d’hôte.
Beneath the guest appartment we find the stables and the storage area where the current owners keep the hay bales.
The property benefits from 1.46 hectares of land, with gardens, fields for the horses, paddocks and a dressage arena.
