Spacious, cozy and renovated house with multiple living units and large garden
Price: € 390 000 | Ref.: 3694 | Views: 3 065
The building has its origins in the 18th century. It is a 300 year old winegrower's house with an attached wine storage. It has been expanded over time and recently completely renovated with great care, with an eye for detail and preservation of authentic elements. Today it has become 3 ready-to-move-in living units that can also be combined. The building is surrounded by a beautiful garden of more than 4,500 m2. The property is located in a small hamlet of la Tour-sur-Orb, away from the hustle and bustle, with a beautiful view of the immediate wooded area. This environment offers many possibilities for various outdoor activities such as hiking, cycling or water sports in the Lac du Salagou. Nearby are several charming villages (Lunas, Bedarieux, ...) and larger cities such as Pézenas, Béziers and Montpellier. Because of its location in the foothills of the Massif Central and the Gorge du Tarn, and 60 km from the Mediterranean Sea (Cap d'Agde, Valras plage) there is lots of nature to enjoy.
On the second floor of the main building is the large luxurious apartment. In front there is a terrace along the entire length of the apartment. Through the separate entrance you reach the cozy living room with built-in fireplace and satellite TV connection. This space connects to the large dining room with fully equipped open kitchen with a 5-burner gas fire with cooker hood, American side-by-side refrigerator, dishwasher, multi-function oven and large sink. From the kitchen there is access to the large rear terrace overlooking the garden and greenery. The living room leads to the spacious bedroom with a large double bed and the fitted bathroom. The bathroom has a washbasin, a walk-in shower, an electric towel dryer and a toilet. In the space between the living room and bathroom are the washing machine and dryer. Living room and dining room are equipped with a heat pump air conditioning system.
On the ground floor of the main building there is a large garage and the smallest living unit with its own access. This consists of a cozy sitting area with wood stove and 2 extra beds, a bedroom with a double bed and a small bathroom with sink, toilet and shower cabin with rain shower, handheld sprayer and jet streams. Through a lockable staircase there is a possible connection between the apartment and this living unit. The sitting area and the bedroom are also equipped with a heat pump air conditioning system.
In the adjacent annexe, the former wine cellar has been converted into a large loft. This has a cozy sitting area with wood stove and satellite TV connection, a dining area, a fitted open kitchen with gas stove, oven and side-by-side refrigerator, a separate sleeping area and a separate bathroom with sink, shower and toilet. The loft has a private entrance through its own terrace and offers a magnificent view of the large garden and is again equipped with a heat pump air conditioning system. There is a lockable passage between the smallest living unit and the loft.
Through the back is access to a large double basement.
The garden used to be a vineyard. The vines are gone and replaced by a green oasis. The garden of about 4,000 m² is located between the house and the village and is fully fenced. It is gently sloping and has some flat spots where you can enjoy the peace and sunshine. Throughout the garden there are several fruit trees. Among others there are apple trees, pear trees, light and dark fig trees and several nut trees. Here and there, there is also a grapevine that has found its way back into the garden. At the back there is a well and a small canal (le béal de Vereilles) that runs through the garden. Enough space for the installation of a swimming pool.
The fuse box has been updated and there are solar panels with a battery system. Hot water is available in the main house with a large electric water heater in the garage and a separate water heater in the basement for the loft.
