Built in 1791, this charming Bastide personifies the dream of French Provencal living. Comfortably dimensioned measuring about 300 m2 of living space, it is set in a peaceful olive grove of about 2000m2, and in walking distance to the picturesque village of Spéracèdes.
Entering the home through the original antique front door, the character and charm is immediately apparent. There are beautiful floors of Salerne tiles, travertine stone, vaulted ceilings, exposed stone walls and old Provencal floor tiles, all preserved during the quality refurbishment which also rendered the home functional and easily maintained.
The Bastide is in superb condition and offers six spacious bedrooms, a large office and four bathrooms. The kitchen with its fantastic "La Cornue" stove, as well as the bathrooms, are all fitted to the highest standard and decorated in tasteful, Provencal style. The living area measures 60 m2 and boasts cathedral ceilings and a grand fireplace, while an upper level galleried dining area overlooks the fireplace.
The fully equipped kitchen is off the dining area and has plenty of space for relaxed family meals at a farmhouse table. There are doors from the kitchen to the large terrace with wide views of the countryside and the Lake Saint Cassien. There are several further, exquisite indoor and outdoor entertaining areas.
Outside, the landscaped garden is laid out over several terraced levels and offers privacy, tranquillity and areas for play. There are mature plants including 60 olive trees and shaded areas to relax. The 10x5 meter swimming pool is secured and has a spacious sun deck. Access to this property is well designed with a large, gated driveway and sufficient parking area.
