Property description
A unique investment opportunity to own a historical home, which has been in the family of Francois Mauriac (winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1952) since the 19th century and remains so until today. Nestled halfway between Arcachon and the Cap Ferret, this magnificent villa is a haven of peace and tranquillity. A pillar in local history, the Villa is listed in local tourisme as one of the places to visit in Taussat. Magnificent gardens of nearly 3000m with private access to the beach, this is the perfect home for lovers of the sea and nature. Set over three floors, there is over 300m of living space. On the first floor, the living area with open fireplace and sliding doors, leading onto the sun-drenched patio. The library, kitchen, dining area, bathroom, toilet and pantry complete the first floor accommodation, with a traditional wooden staircase leading to the first floor. The high ceilings and large windows allow light to pour in the 4 bedrooms on the first floor, two of which are en suite and currently used as guest bedrooms in the chambre d'hotes. The 2 south-west facing bedrooms give the occupants magnificent, uninterrupted views of Arcachon Bay. The loft has been converted to a large en suite bedroom and such a versatile space could be used as a playroom, home gym, office or studio. The garden is lined with trees, flowers and over 300m of outbuildings, storage and seating terraces. The home is sold at a a reduced price due to the owner retaining the right to reside in the property until her death (droit dusage dhabitation), at which point all rights transfer immediately to the buyer of the property. Taussat-let-bains is one of the rare, untouched areas of Arcachon Bay. Toulouse-Lautrec passed many a moment in Taussat and it is where he painted his famous portrait "L'Enfant au chien, fils de Madame Marthe et la chienne Pamela The local area has many bike trails, an eco-museum, oyster restaurants and the port of Taussat houses 55 boats. "On the opposite shore to Arcachon, strange lands of mud reign, which the water would cover once more at high tide. Before lunch, the sea shines under your window; and when you want to behold it again, it is no longer there; it is as far as the eye can see, a plain where only a few puddles glisten - and, without the smacks stranded like dead whales, one would think that the tide has never come so far. Here, the sea no longer attacks, it retreats." Franois Mauriac, The French Academy, 1933
