Property Gallery and Description
Built in 1975 by a well known local property developer, this property merges old and new, Languedoc, Moroccan and Andalusian with a suggestion of Capability Brown. It is located close to a thriving town and only a short drive from the sea and the city of Montpellier. The approach via a country lane, past local farming and winegrowing establishments leads to elegant iron gates that open inwards to reveal a fine property within an oasis of land planted with rows of Languedocs trademark welcoming Cypress trees, olive groves, bamboo crescents and Bougainvillea to name but a few. The house itself has received the utmost attention with a majestic stucco fireplace, stone staircases, glass-powder and marble finish on the walls, as well as locally quarried stone archways. A recent addition reveals an atrium-like extension clad in mosaic, boasting a steam-room and a glass pyramid roof modelled on that of the Louvre. An exceptional property!
