Five houses, a ruin and a large barn on your own mountain, in the middle of nature
Price: € 1 427 000 | Ref.: 3600 | Views: 862
Do you dream of your own 'hameau' (hamlet) in France? This estate near Joyeuse in the South Ardèche consists of five fine houses, a ruin to renovate and a somewhat higher situated barn of 14x6 meters. All this on a hillside on a dead-end road with 7 hectares of private pasture and woods. An oasis of peace with breathtaking views over the unspoilt countryside between the wild rivers Beaume and Drobie. Ideal for those who want to buy a hamlet with a few friends or for those who want to live on site and run a tourist business at the same time. Some of the houses are already being rented out during the tourist season, but it is possible to expand this activity.
There are five independent homes or 'gites' on the property, spread over two large buildings with a total of 13 bedrooms. Four of the homes have three bedrooms each and the fifth home has one bedroom. All gîtes have a fully equipped kitchen, a bathroom with shower, a toilet and a sheltered terrace with view. As you can see on the drone overview photo, there is a third building on the edge of the hill that could possibly be made habitable as well. There is a permit for the creation of two more houses with respectively four and two bedrooms.
The land covers a total of 70.000m2 or seven hectares (17 acres), intersected by the road that leads to two neighbors and then stops. So there is only local traffic. To the north of the houses a track leads to a large newly built barn with a 14x6 m walled area and a 14x3 m roof. There is a permit for the construction of a 14x6 meter swimming pool.
There is a septic tank system and mains water, electricity and internet connections. There is also a private well that provides enough water all year round for the bathrooms and irrigation of the gardens. Former residents have always drunk this water. In the barn on the mountain is a water tank with 10,000 liters (2642 gallons) as a reserve, filled by the well. This well water could also be used to fill a swimming pool.
In short, if you are looking for a large domain in a paradisiacal natural environment, far away from all city worries, then this is your chance. These properties are not yet for sale by an agent, so you buy directly from the owner without commission.
Alternatively, the buyer can sell part of the gîtes. There is already a plan, drawn up by a surveyor, to separate the gîtes.
