11 bed Countryside house near to Béziers, Hérault, Occitanie
The property is located at the edge of a charming village with basic shops and only some km from a village offering all amenities including restaurants, in the Béziers area. A wrought-iron gate flanked with stone pillars opens to a courtyard formed by the buildings. 2 independent houses are connected by another courtyard enclosed with visible stone walls. The 4 bedroom house offers perfect accommodation for friends or as a gîte as it opens directly onto the large garden and pool. The main house has been restored using quality materials; since the house was mostly closed it needs in the meantime some refreshment work, mainly painting. Exquisite taste combined with the effort to keep all its charm and authenticity makes this family home a prime example of an elegant Maison de Maître equipped with all modern comforts. The property offers high speed internet. The second house has been extended by a large lounge in converting a former stable. Another little house of 60m² could be restored as well as the adjoining attic of 70m². The garden and its lovely pool are entirely private and it is a relaxing haven.
