5 bed Character Property, France – ID: 6525086
Property Gallery and Description
Located in a lively village in the Narbonne area, Languedoc Roussillon, South France, this 19th Century wine cave was converted in 2007, to create a spacious, contemporary home whilst respecting the original character of the building. The house comprises a large open plan living area, with views of the lush, Mediterranean garden on three sides. The village is surrounded by vineyards, and a short drive will bring you to a selection of beaches. All amenities at a few minutes walk.
Description of the building
The house offers around 290m² of living space on one floor.
Ground floor: Entrance to the property through electric gates which lead to the lovely garden. Here we find the glass and wrought iron veranda, 50m², atelier 25m², large central island kitchen 32m², living area 46m², cozy contemporary fireplace.
The bedrooms are arranged as two distinct areas, one for the parents 30m², complete with his and hers shower rooms. The other wing comprises three large bedrooms of 13m² each with mezzanine, sharing a large family bathroom 10,5m². There is also a 5th room 13m² leading onto the enclosed patio 21m², which could be used as a guest bedroom or study. A guest toilet, cloakroom and laundry/storage room 15m² complete this beautifully designed home.
The garden, around 1500m2, surrounds the property on three sides and comprises three distinct areas, a large lawn area with magnificent mature trees, swimming pool area and an orchard. There are wooden decked terraces around the house, offering great space to entertain or just relax in a quiet corner. It is hard to believe that you are in the centre of a popular village when you are in this private oasis. There is ample room to park several cars, and perhaps construct a garage or car-port, next to the entrance gate.
The house is in perfect condition, having been completely refitted in 2007. There is town gas central heating in addition to the reversible air conditioning. A modern ‘pebble’ gas flame fireplace completes the picture. All the windows are aluminum double glazed, and ensure a wonderful, light feel to the house, while keeping a high standard of insulation. There may be a little redecoration required, according to taste.
A genuinely unique house, set in a lush private garden, with all amenities within a short walk. This really is a dream home for someone wanting complete privacy, with large open living areas, ideal for a large family, entertaining, or running a residential course, such as painting, pottery, cookery, yoga, or writing. The separate bedroom wings and independent entrance lend themselves to a commercial activity.
