Plot Size 20139 m²
Property type: Prestige Property
For sale in the Mediterranean city of Narbonne is this stunning, recently renovated property dating from 1715, offering almost 290m² of habitable space, set in a secluded plot of over 20,000m² with swimming pool, garage, and a huge developable barn.
The property which was formerly a wine domaine, is located in the middle of countryside on the edge of Narbonne but within cycling/walking distance from the city centre. Featuring an exposed stone façade, the building comprises a main residence, an annexe which is currently used as an office, a huge garage/barn, a store room and a wine cellar. It was substantially renovated in 2018 using materials of the highest quality to create a light and spacious contemporary home with all modern comforts, yet retaining the charm and authenticity of the original building.
On the ground floor, there is a vast open plan living room configured as a salon, dining area and a snug/tv room. The room has huge floor to ceiling glass doors/windows that open onto a expansive terrace overlooking the pool, and the vineyards and countryside beyond. Off to the left of this room is a ground floor bedroom and stairs to the semi renovated upper floor of the barn. A short flight of stairs in the main living area leads to an upper floor, which comprises an intimate master suite, with bedroom, dressing room and en-suite bathroom. To the right of the living room is an inviting, fully fitted contemporary kitchen which too has large glazed window and door onto the terrace, a huge open fireplace and a storage room.
From the kitchen, a stone staircase leads to the next floor, where there are 2 bedrooms and a utility room, whilst on the top floor has a further 2 bedrooms and a bathroom.
The office attached to the main residence is around 32m², with a separate glazed entrance. Next to the office is an additional shower room, which needs refreshing.
The grounds of over 20,000m² comprise a wooden parkland with mature indigenous and fruiting trees. The spacious south facing terrace leads down to a 10m x 5m salt water pool. Attached to the main residence is a large two storey garage/ barn, the upper floor of which has been partially renovated and is ready to create 4 further bedrooms and 4 bathrooms but can be finished according to one’s needs. This space can be accessed directly from the living room. There are further spaces in the building which also have the potential for development.
With its seclusion yet close proximity to a bustling city, its blend of contemporary yet rustic character and its potential for further development, this property is indeed a rare find, worthy of an immediate viewing!
