Taste and experience all the qualities of…… la vie à l’Occitane …..avec une touche de Provence ! Wonderful setting for this great and spacious high-quality property with stunning views at the entrance gate of the “Parc Naturel Régional du Haut-Languedoc”. This property is located at a walking distance of the center of a small village close to St. Chinian where time seems to have stopped, located in the middle of a beautiful hilly, varied and natural Mediterranean landscape.
In the small towns of Cessenon sur Orb and St. Chinian, accessible by bike if desired, one finds a large choice of shops, restaurants and other amenities. The bigger sparkling towns of Béziers and Montpellier, both with their own High-Speed Train Station and international airport, are respectively a 25- to 60-minutes’ drive away. The sandy beaches of the Mediterranean are only about 35 minutes away. The house dating from the 1980’s has been traditionally built on an air-crawl space. Since then, it has been perfectly maintained and adapted to current tastes. The property is extremely well situated, south facing on a small hill, above a small stream. The property offers its own olive grove (olive oil !) and benefits of a safe difference in altitude in regard of the stream which borders the property. Set on the outskirts of the village, the villa benefits absolute peace, quietness and privacy and views of over 180°C. The property offers a built area of ≥ 650 m² including the habitable space of approximately 261 m² comprising, among others, an entrance hall with a majestic staircase, an office, a large living room with fireplace, a vast kitchen with dining room, 4 bedrooms each with its own shower- or bathroom. In addition to the living space, there is a large independent double garage, a technical room for the pool, a (wine) cellar, a heating room, a wooden shed and of course the "swimming pool area" with its decking, terraces and nearby summer kitchen. The house has been designed in a Southern French manner and features high quality, sustainable building materials, such as the uniform floor in natural stone ( Pierre du Gard ) and the kitchen and bathrooms with their brand-name equipment. In addition to its construction qualities, the property is characterized by its unique design, where nothing seems to be straight (on purpose) as well as its arched wooden joinery and its rich “genoises” underscoring its Provençal touch. The architect aimed to create a harmonious whole with in each room a pleasant dose of light and a view on nature and the greenery of the garden. Today we can see and conclude that he has succeeded perfectly! Access to the partly fenced, plot (11,800 m²), is via an attractive iron gate and a graveled access road leading to a small private roundabout, making it easy to drive and useless to turn. Here, one can easily park in one of the many parking spaces. A second, wooden, gate serves as a service entrance. The garden seems to blend in with the surrounding nature and has been carefully designed. The olive grove, the flower beds, the vegetable garden, the almond trees, the few vines, the pines, the cypresses or the banks of the stream surrounded by (green) oaks give an immediate feeling of relaxation and “savoir vivre”, which is in line with the worldwide reputation of this region (Top 5 in the CNBC ranking! ). Part of the park garden is equipped with an integrated watering system connected to the Le Bas Rhône network (low-cost water for agricultural use) and also with various light points so that one can enjoy this privileged place also during the evening hours. The pool area completes the ensemble. The swimming pool, built in 2006, is equipped with heat pump, light points, a mosaic tiles finish, a staircase and an electric roller shutter. The very large composite decking with a solar shower, a Jacuzzi and direct access to the summer kitchen with separate toilet contribute to the well-being of the owners and their guests. A uniquely designed property where the Mediterranean climate can be fully enjoyed during the four seasons. The rich, varied and stunning views make this property perfect and a great investment opportunity! Exclusive offer. Viewings by appointment
