Originally 4 stone village houses dating from the 19th century, the houses have been progressively transformed into a stylish home of the very highest standards with contemporary design features and comforts, yet retaining the charm and character of the original buildings. The property is centrally located, within 100 meters from the main square, yet is very calm and private with unobstructed views from the garden onto vineyards and the Black Mountain range.
The main residence offers approximately 350m2 of living space over three floors. On the ground floor, the entrance hall opens onto a living room with a fireplace and doors onto a terrace overlooking the garden. Next to the living room is a spacious, fully equipped kitchen/dining room, which opens out onto a dining terrace shaded by a pergola and onto the garden. There is also a pantry/laundry room and a workshop on this floor. The workshop gives access to a large garage
The first floor has a generous landing with storage space, three bedrooms, a bathroom and a small hallway leading to a second sitting room and the master suite. The master suite has an en-suite shower room and a mezzanine/office area with an access to a dressing room and a south-east facing roof terrace and winter garden on the floor above.
The second floor has one bedroom, a shower room and a large open living space (part of which could easily be separated into an additional bedroom) with fantastic views of the countryside.
Connected to the main house by a ‘floating’ glass corridor is an independent guest house of approximately 40m2 on 2 floors. Access on the ground floor is via an independent entrance from the street. There is a living room and a shower room on the ground floor, with access to a private covered terrace. A spiral staircase leads to the first-floor bedroom, which is connected to the main house via the lockable glass corridor.
The garden of 460 m2 is divided by a stone wall into two areas, the first one featuring two dining areas/ terraces, and the second one a lawn and pool area, including a garden shed and a pool house with a large sunny terrace, a sauna and a shower room with Wc. The concrete 12×3 metre swimming has just been renovated and is equipped with new electrolysis water treatment equipment. Beyond the garden is an additional 6900 m2 of meadow land with another garden shed and a car port.
