Property Description

Quaint, spacious village house built into the remparts of a popular Herault village, offering approximately 250m² of habitable space, with 5 bedrooms/4 bathrooms, a courtyard garden with heated plunge pool, 3 terraces with lovely views of the village and private off-street parking.
The property, which has medieval origins, comprises a three-storey main house with a tower and an attached two-storey house. The property has 2 entrances, one to the main house and one to a smaller house. The main entrance door opens onto a hallway that leads to the courtyard garden, which in turn opens onto the main salon. The salon is full of character with original terracotta tiles, exposed beams and marble fireplace, and leads to an equally delightful kitchen.
An original staircase leads to a first floor hallway overlooking the courtyard. At one end of the hallway, there is a second salon, the master suite comprising a bedroom, a bathroom and a private terrace. At the other end of the hallway is a large bathroom with rolltop bath and shower cubicle.
On the second floor, a hallway leads to another bedroom (with large cupboard and WC) opens onto a spacious roof terrace with ‘trompe l’oeil decoration. On the other side of the hallway is a small bedroom with its own bathroom. From the hallway, one accesses the tower, which houses a small room with a ladder leading up to a further terrace with 360° views of the village and surrounding countryside. Tower terrace access is restricted and only for the physically mobile!
The second house comprises a ground floor room, currently used as a pottery studio, with a spiral staircase to the upper floor, where there is a bedroom and shower room. This property could easily be converted into a self-contained apartment with independent access or amalgamated into the main house to create one larger property
Outside, the idyllic courtyard garden is divided into two – one part is used as a al fresco dining area and the other part, with a stunning heated plunge pool is used for relaxing and sun bathing. Both the first salon and the kitchen open onto the courtyard garden.
This charming property is fully renovated and ready to move into as is but with the potential for some expansion, if desired. It is perfect for anyone looking for a property with individual character and charm.
