In the pure air of the Parc Naturel du Haut-Languedoc, surrounded by 16 hectares of wildflower meadows and woodland, this beautiful, south facing, stone built farmhouse has been renovated to a high standard in a contemporary style. The accommodation comprises 7 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, swim spa room with sauna, artist's studio and workshop. The large living room, dining room and kitchen all have doors leading to a grassed area overlooking a formal garden below with open views to its land beyond.
The house, renovated by a prestigious architect, has generously sized rooms with high ceilings, passive solar heating, hardwood windows and riven slate floors. Entry to the house is through a handmade oak front door leading into a spacious reception hall with an art gallery space. The large salon has feature fireplaces at each end and a vaulted ceiling. The master bedroom suite opens directly onto a large sun terrace with open views, and the recently refitted master bathroom has a walk in rain shower and double-ended bath. The house is well appointed throughout with plenty of storage cupboards. There is a laundry room, a kitchen with walk in pantry, a summer kitchen and separate boiler room.
Part of the house can be separated by a fire door, offering private accommodation with a separate entrance, kitchen, and all facilities, suitable for the extended family, teenagers or as a guest gite. A staircase leading to the attic provides an additional bedroom area if required.
The property is approached via a sweeping driveway, arriving at a gravelled parking area with a three car garage. There is a professionally-designed and well-maintained formal garden with terraces magnificently planted with shrubs, providing colour throughout the year.
With its productive organic vegetable garden, eco heating (solar, wood, and oil back-up), a year-round pure water source and recently updated drainage system, this property is a secluded retreat free from all pollution and is also a haven for wildlife. The south facing open view from the house looks out upon its own land where there is ample grazing for horses, and reserved hunting if desired.
