The renowned town of Lourdes is set amidst mountain landscapes in the French department of Hautes-Pyrénées. Its town centre is somewhat different to what might be imagined. It has, in fact, the authentic appearance of a small Pyrenean town, with typical exposed stone houses, featuring marble-framed openings and slate-covered roofs.
Lourdes train station and Lourdes-Tarbes airport put it within easy reach. Pau airport is but 50 minutes away.
A large, luxurious, designer house
Spanning three levels over cellars and under an attic floor, this robust, late 19th century building clearly reflects the style of its time, Art Nouveau. Without any pretence of wanting to be compared to the particular, emblematic style of the “School of Nancy”, it bears, courtesy of the freedom of types, strong similarities: the semi-circular oriel on the street facade, spanning the full height of the two main levels; the sculptures topping pilasters or small columns and representing symbols of the architecture and building trades; and also, the alternating of light and dark grey stone in the quoins that flank the flat surfaces covered with red-ochre rendering. The garden facade contrasts however, its soberness being in keeping with the traditional architecture of the Bigorre region.
The garden house
An architectural feature of particular interest courtesy of its rarity, this garden house takes on great importance because of the unusual size for such a function. Constructed at the same time as the large, luxurious home, it was however extended at a slightly later date. Its style essentially corresponds to that of local Bigorre houses, with light-coloured rendering on the facade and a slate roof. Its proportions are harmonious and the materials used for the facade, notably wood, make the building’s purpose clear. Currently in a fairly poor state of repair, it awaits major restoration works.
This is a rare property comprising two contemporary houses with totally different functions, leading to very different architectural approaches. Street and garden were determinant in the architectural choices: a very elaborate style on the street side is the result not only of the Art Nouveau style but also the materials used; a refined, Bigorre style is reflected by both houses facing one another on the garden side. The quality of the construction is equally as outstanding as the overall design.
Works need to be scheduled to give this property back its splendour of yesteryear.
A delight for an enthusiast of architecture and history.
