4 bedroom house with 1 bedroom independent studio with kitchen, shower and mezzanine, in 8,000m2 of land.
South-facing and commanding panoramic views, the house is situated about 100m above the small well-preserved village of Etxalar which lies 28km from Behobia, the border between France and Spain, and 8km over the mountain road towards Sare in France. The house is of typical Basque construction built to a very high specification with local stone and good quality timber, most of which can be seen as exposed beams. It was newly constructed three years ago and it has all the key utilities, including its own spring water, solar panels and an under-floor heating system. The exterior doors and windows are double-glazed with natural pine frames, and painted pine shutters and balconies. Living space is 300m2 excluding balconies and terraces. The house sits in over 8000m2 of land, some of which is deciduous forest. Building a swimming pool would be easy, as there is part of the garden ideal for this.
Ground floor Consists of an open plan reception area of 80m2 with a kitchen and a cloak room/toilet. Double doors lead out onto the garden with surrounding meadows and trees. South facing, there is a spacious wooden deck with stunning views overlooking Etxalar, a village which is very well-preserved and relatively untouched. The floor is laid with hand-made terracotta tiles, whilst the upstairs flooring is solid chestnut throughout.
First floor Three bedrooms. One bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with access to a large south-facing terracotta floored terrace. There is also an independent bathroom for the other two bedrooms which both have access to wide balconies.
Second floor Storage room and a large area of 60m2 suitable for conversion into a studio/flat or further bedrooms with hot and cold water and drains already installed.
Studio An independent 1 bedroom, open plan building with all domestic facilities including a kitchen area, shower room and mezanine. Contains undercover parking for several vehicles.
