Provence Home, our real estate agency in Oppède, is offering for sale: A renovated 19th-century former silkworm farm at the foot of the Luberon. FARMHOUSE SURROUNDINGS Peaceful, without being isolated, with magnificent views of the Luberon, this property is in a countryside setting, whilst still being close to amenities. EXTERIOR OF THE PROVENÇAL FARMHOUSE The 8,767-m² attractively tree-lined grounds are mainly at the front of the property, with lovely unimpeded views. There are two entrances: a majestic cypress-lined walk, and a gateway with two carports and plenty of outside-parking space. An ancient fountain flanked by 2 fig-trees marks the way through a large wooden gate to a spacious interior courtyard with stone walls, creating a calm and peaceful haven. In the heart of the courtyard is a pleasant swimming pool area for relaxation and exercise. Imagine lazy siestas in the shade of the 100-year-old lime tree, as you are lulled to sleep by the chirping of the cicadas. The terrace at the front of this deluxe residence is shaded by a trumpet vine with striking red flowers and a Lutea rose, and provides an ideal setting for relaxed meals with friends and family. INTERIOR OF THE PROVENÇAL FARMHOUSE This 625-m² renovated former silk-farm retains its intrinsic charm and authenticity. Inside the building, a stone staircase leads upstairs from the large entrance hall. On one side is a magnificent spacious 83-m² living area with a large fireplace and wide bay window opening onto the patio.
