Good Monday morning! A cozy Basque farmhouse on 28 ACRES of organic-certified farmland! Comes with milking and cheese-making facilities, plus two stone barns.
Producing organic goat cheese on your own farmstead seems like such a beautiful and way to live. It would be hard work, but the rewards would be self-sufficiency, an outdoor-oriented lifestyle, and the creation of culinary delights. Daydream-worthy!
From the listing on Leggett:
Dating back to the 1700s, this splendid property in the Pyrénées comprises a farmhouse of 94m², which has been double glazed throughout, a two-storey stone barn ideal for a gîte, another stone barn to convert further along the hillside, a huge milking parlour of 250m² with facilities for making cheese and various outbuildings, including an open-sided hangar adjoining the farmhouse. The organic-certified land of 111,439m² (28 acres) extends up the hillside and is ideal for grazing.
Located at the end of a country lane yet just minutes away from a lively village in the valley with shops and a school, this cosy farmhouse of 94m² has a spacious main room with a sitting area, a dining area and a modern kitchen, a walk-in pantry, a study or small office, a large bedroom, a shower room and plumbing for a separate WC. On the first floor, there are two lovely bedrooms and a shower room with a WC; on the second floor, there is a loft-style room which could be used as a bedroom, a playroom or a large office. Although in need of a few finishing touches, the farmhouse has been completely modernised and double-glazed and is ready to move into.
Outside, the modern barns are conveniently close to the farmhouse and the donkeys currently grazing on the land have safe access to the milking parlour at the back of the barn. There is two-storey stone barn at the entrance to the property, which would be ideal for transforming into a gîte, as would the second stone barn, which is located further away from the farmhouse along the hillside.
Situated in the Basque Country, but close to the Béarn and its famous Jurançon vineyards, there are always things to see and do all year round. For mountain lovers, there are several ski resorts not far away in the Pyrénées. If you prefer watersports, there are numerous lakes and rivers throughout this wonderful region, along with beach resorts on the Atlantic coast, which are perfect for surfers and for family days out.
