Natural stone house with independent guest room and surprising garden. Be surprised by this romantic and historical stone house with independent guest room and surprising garden, located in a peaceful natural environment in the heart of the Hérault département and the Languedoc-Occitanie region !
The property is located in the center of a small picturesque municipality where time seems to have stood still and which is set amidst a beautiful, wooded varied Mediterranean hilly landscape. The municipality boasts monumental 12th-century buildings such as the restored castle and church. Besides a campsite, a few wineries and other small businesses, one will find a fine atmosphere in this community. Numerous walks and cycling tours can be started from the house. Nearby are several (market) towns such as; Gabian, Roujan, Clermont l'Hérault, Lamalou les Bains, Bédarieux, Faugères and Pézenas. The major cities of Béziers and sparkling Montpellier, each with their own High Speed Train station and international airport, are at a 45-55 minutes' drive away. The shores of the beautiful "Lac de Salagou" are about 20 kilometers away and the Mediterranean beaches about 45 kilometers away. This property has its origins around the year 1800 and therefore it has a rich past. For example, the story goes that the lady of the castle used to spent the winter in this house in earlier times. The history of this house is still reflected in numerous original details such as the massive natural stone steps or in the vaults that can be admired on both the upper level and the lower level of the house. Every step forward, one will be surprised by natural stone, old doors, beams or others. While entering this property, one will feel immediately home. About 12 years ago, the property was largely restored. Besides the recent "reversible air conditioning " and the connection to the High Speed internet network, the property is also been equipped with 2 comfortable fireplaces of which 1 of the brand “Godin”. The total built area covers approximately 150 m² which is divided over the main house (78 m²) with 2 bedrooms, a spacious dining kitchen, a living room and sanitary facilities. In addition, there is the guest house with a separate entrance, consisting of a cozy guest room with adjoining sanitary facilities and an adjoining terrace and storage space underneath. There is also potential for further development of the habitable space: such as in the vaults at street level, where it would be relatively easy to create a workshop an extra guesthouse or painters studio. The garden is an added bonus at this house. With its many seats, its natural stone walls, its level differences, its various terraces with controlled overgrown pergolas and its rich Mediterranean vegetation, it appears like a true botanical garden. Despite these qualities, the current owners have taken care to keep the maintenance manageable. On the higher parts of the garden, one can enjoy a view of nature and on the lower parts, a beautiful view of the old town center may be obtained, with a dominant role for the restored church tower. The house is very suitable for permanent stay in the South of France. Due to its charm, its composition, its privileged location and its still-to-be-developed potential, numerous other uses are also conceivable.
