Provence Home, our real estate agency in Oppède, is offering for sale: A character-filled property, built in 1840, in a year-round hamlet near the village of Mérindol. COUNTRY HOUSE SURROUNDINGS Located in a peaceful yet not isolated area, the house is sheltered from the mistral by a hill directly behind the property. COUNTRY HOUSE EXTERIOR A stone wall and stately wrought-iron gate mark the entrance of the property from the road. The tree-filled 1,900-m² garden is a delectably cool oasis thanks to the four springs that pass through the property and fill its historic wash houses, allowing for outdoor watering and even supplying the house with untreated water (in addition to the municipal water supply). Though there is currently no swimming pool, a rustic pool with stone edging would make a lovely addition to the garden. The south-facing terrace, shaded by an arbour, is the perfect setting for enjoying outdoor summer meals and get-togethers in total privacy. COUNTRY HOUSE INTERIOR Reoccupied for the past 20 years, the country house has undergone extensive renovations using traditional and eco-friendly materials, with an eye to preserving the integrity of its interior space. The ground floor is comprised of a living room, dining room with fireplace, small fitted kitchen and side rooms (laundry room, boiler room, cellar). A west-facing garage could be turned into an extension of the adjacent living room. The 3 upper levels feature 8 spacious bedrooms, 1 office and 5 shower rooms or bathrooms (one of which is unfinished). Rooms are arranged around a handsome central staircase. All that’s needed are a few additional fixtures and fittings to embellish and round out this beautiful, character-filled country house. It has the potential to be a splendid family home or could even be converted into a bed and breakfast.
