Happy Bargain Friday! This ancient stone stable is a fascinating renovation opportunity! It is located in a village called Les Pilles — a collection of houses clustered underneath two rocky cliffs, with L’Eygues river flowing in between in the Drôme province, tucked into the foothills of the Rhône-Alps in the southeast corner of France. The building has so much potential, and I love that it’s located right next to a rocky cliff jutting out of the earth! So beautiful and surreal. I’d love to craft this into a secret hideout oasis atelier of some kind!
From the listing on French Estate Agents:
Almost independent old and authentic stable, facing the Eygues river on one side and a spectacular rock on the other, each floor containing 28m² to create. A total of 84 habitable space is possible. Easy to connect to water, mains, electricity and telecom, all just outside in the very quiet street.
An oral agreement was granted to extend the building on the riverside with a balcony all along and a new entrance just beside the existing one.
The village has a school and some small amenities. Nyons, with all amenities and a lovely provencal market, is 6 kms drive through the Eygues valley. Under the street level are 1 accessible floor and one that has yet to be rediscovered, but which can be used as a wine cellar.
Wonderful landscapes around this building.
Advantages of this renovation project:
– quiet situation on the beautiful riverside
– roof was already redone in 2013
– water, mains and electricity at the doorstep
Well equipped builders’ shops in the neighbourhood.
