5 bed Character Property, France – ID: 6308530
Property Gallery and Description
This is a highly unusual property, especially since it is within easy walking distance of the centre of an ever-popular town in the Uzes area, Languedoc Roussillon, South France. It’s a modern construction, yet using quality and noble materials throughout, many especially imported or collected over many years to be utilised again here. It’s designed for a modern family and every luxury is installed to ensure this. The architect was governed by the restraints of ‘Batiments de France’, who determined how the house should be placed. The choice of planting hundreds of AOC olives and truffle oaks gives immediate revenue from the property itself, and since the house stands at the centre of these plantations, it’s entirely private and almost self-contained. All the amenities of a bustling market town are on the doorstep and in easy walking distance.
Description of the Property
The house is on two floors and offers some 360m˛ of living space.
Ground floor: The house is entered from the wide driveway and winter garden 18m˛, through an elegant front door into the entrance hall 18m˛ with guest toilet, white furniture room/laundry 15m˛, fully equipped kitchen 30m˛, sitting/dining room 92m˛ with possibility to install a fireplace, master bedroom with ensuite bathroom 31m˛ and private terrace. There are built-in cupboards in all bedrooms and in strategic places in all corridors. The ground floor enjoys under-floor ‘basse-temperature’ heating. Access to the upper floor is via an impressive staircase with wrought iron balustrades to the gallery above.
First floor: The gallery covers some 14m˛ and comprises built-in furniture and storage of some 24m˛, Access to the roof space is also from here, playroom 27m˛ with en-suite. 4 further bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities each about 24m˛ in size. All rooms on this floor are light and bright and 4 of them face south, the 5th faces towards the north. All rooms on this floor are air- conditioned (cool to warm) with individual room controls. All rooms are fully connected for phone and internet, and there is centralised vacuuming and air-freshening.
Pool: 14x7m and enclosed on two sides by large spaces for outdoor eating, BBQ and storage of some 68m˛ + the 10m˛ technical centre for all services to the house and pool.
Garages and storage for farm equipment are located in the entrance area on the north side of the house. They cover some 90m˛ and are so designed to be easily converted to separate studio or guest apartment, with provision for additional garage space as required. All services needed for this development are already in place and connected.
These extend to some 4.3 hectares and are roughly divided into the same area for 225 AOC olives de Nimes (Appellation d’Origine Controlee) and 350 truffle oaks. The grounds are completely surrounded by dry stone walls. None of the surrounding land is constructible.
The house and grounds are in excellent overall condition and well tended. It is hard to imagine any further work, except perhaps for the development of the outbuildings already mentioned.
This is a very fine contemporary, luxury home. It was constructed using only the finest materials and is fitted with every convenience. The grounds may sound like hard work, but the trees do look after themselves, though the olives need to be trimmed to keep their shape and maximise their crop. You could not possibly be closer to the centre such a historic town with such a large property. It is thoroughly recommended to you.
