Price: € 249 000 | Ref.: 3471 | Views: 1 998
Large house of 165 m2 with four bedrooms and two living rooms, separate large kitchen and three bath rooms. The building is part of an old compound farmhouse, like a small hamlet with a total of eight dwellings and a large heated swimming pool. There are three main buildings. In the oldest part, the house to be sold now shares the building of the main house of the owner/seller. There is a second building with 4 houses that have already been sold and a wooden building of more recent date that has also been sold. The occupants are an international group of currently three Belgian, two Dutch and one French owners. The origin of the hamlet is probably around 1500. Cattle used to be raised here, silkworms were reared and in a later period wine was also cultivated. It is situated between the Cevennes and Provence, near cities like Anduze, Uzes, Montpellier and Nîmes on a very quiet Route Departementale (D285) and with a magnificent view over the valley.
This comfortable large house occupies half of the main house and has a ground floor and two upper floors. Entrance through the vine covered terrace (sun in early and late season and shade in high season). Door to the dining and living kitchen with space for 8 to 10 diners. The kitchen is spacious with an extra large stove and dishwasher. Living / TV room on the ground floor. Wardrobe and separate toilet with washing machine. The house also has a second, higher terrace, ideal for an aperitif in the evening sun. On the first floor is a spacious cozy living room with fireplace. Big bedroom, large bathroom with bath, separate shower, washbasin and toilet. The second floor has three bedrooms, a second bathroom with shower, double sink and toilet.
In this house are three spacious terraces, secluded with lots of privacy, this is all private property. Furthermore, you become co-owner of the 9 hectares of the domain and the heated swimming pool of 12 x 6 m. There are closed barns or sheds on the grounds for storage (bicycles, or instance).
Big plus of living in this hamlet is that you have the advantages of a house in France, but not the burdens. The maintenance of the grounds and swimming pool is done by the owners association, so the first days after arrival are not lost in garden maintenance, preparing the pool and other work. The "gardien" carries out the maintenance, can check in between if everything is in order and if needed can also preheat the house for a winter stay.
The house was rented fully furnished for tourists until 2019, so everything is there, kitchens with appliances, full crockery, beds, even bedding, fully furnished and upholstered, garden furniture, washing machine. All this is included in the sale. The state of maintenance is very good here, so little or no costs are to be expected in the first years.
The houses are suitable to live all year round. The climate is pleasant with only a few frosts and many sunny days. The house can be heated with two wood-burning stoves on the ground floor and a fireplace in the living room. The bedrooms have electric heating. If you're up to it, you can cut the wood yourself on the 8 hectares of forest of the domain.
The house is connected to the municipal water network, there is an ADSL internet connection and also 3G and often 4G reception for the mobile phone. At the moment there are 2 lines for the eight houses. If you need a higher capacity, you can request an extra line. The electrical connection of the network has just been renewed and has considerable overcapacity. A "microstation" was built three years ago for the wastewater treatment. With this, the hameau meets the most modern environmental requirements.
