This detached property has been designed so that all the living spaces and bedrooms have views of the surrounding countryside, with large expanses of glass opening onto terraces which are almost as extensive as the interior living space. In addition, the house is situated on a raised elevation to take advantage of the stunning views of the open countryside, with only 2 other houses in the vicinity.
Accessed via a raised front entrance or from the garage below, one arrives in a vast open plan living room with salon, contemporary kitchen and dining area. Large sliding glass doors on one elevation open onto the terraces and bring in plenty of light to this living space. A spacious hall off the living room leads to the master bedroom with attached bathroom, and the three other bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite bathroom too. There is also a family bathroom and separate WC here. In addition, there is an office off the salon, which could double as a fifth bedroom.
The extensive wooden terraces around the house give the living space a much bigger feel. The terraces continue around the pool and summer kitchen, which are completely private and have unobstructed views of the countryside.
Below the terracing is the garage with parking for two cars, as well as a large utility room/cellar. The garden/ land surrounds the house and comprises the local scrubland called ‘garrigue’ and mature pins.
This high-end property is designed to take advantage of its rustic setting, whilst at the same time offering topnotch contemporary living with all luxury amenities. Great summer rental potential!
