1870s Maison bourgeoise with pool and caretakers cottage, Hérault, Occitanie
This impressive townhouse is rich in character presenting itself as a property of many facets. As you enter into the sweeping hallway of this elegant town house of la belle epoque spread over 3 levels with large high-ceilinged rooms, one would never guess at the second house within it to one side which announces itself via a modern, spacious kitchen and leads into another space which has been remodelled as a high-end New York loft apartment overlooking the walled garden, complete with 'on trend' living wall and plunge pool.
The main property boasts an oriental drawing room with skylight, traditional French salon and large dining room on the ground floor, with a sweeping staircase to bedrooms above, including a master bedroom with a large walk through wardrobe.
The property is located in the heart of a popular village in the Minervois, itself in a region of ever increasing popularity with its proximity to the sea, skiing, the mountains and the most dynamic towns in France.
The walled, terraced garden has a mezzanine sun-lounging area complete with 3m x 6m plunge pool. There is also a 40m² garage and a 45m² village house which could be an additional guesthouse or gite accommodation.
The solar panels on the roofs give an income of 2000 Euro per year.
