Happy Tuesday, Escapists! A sunny escape in the South of France! An authentic stone village house with terrace in small village in Hérault.
This house feels freeing to me, despite its ancient age. I’m not sure exactly why – maybe the wash of bright sunshine, open windows, make-do kitchen, or even the haphazard bedroom upstairs. It reminds me of the morning after I moved to a certain city, waking up to new territory to venture out and explore. Sitting on my mattress, temporarily on the floor, looking the angles of bright sunshine on my new walls, feeling a soft early summer breeze from the open windows. I get the same feeling of possibility from this little house. Are there many better feelings? Do you ever get random sensory memories?
From the listing on Leggett:
Rare opportunity to buy a beautiful character property in a cosmopolitan hamlet, above the river Orb, close to Olargues. This lovely property currently provides 2 bedrooms, a vaulted ground floor, a lovely entrance area and a room currently used as a bedroom/living room but that would make a perfect bedroom with ensuite (plumbing ready). On the first floor, there is a good-sized kitchen with a lounge area next to it as well as the bathroom. From the kitchen, you have access to the terrace of 20 m². On the upper level there is one big bedroom – that could easily be divided into two good sized bedrooms. The room before is a great landing area with a mezzanine to provide additional space. Lots of authentic feature such as stone flooring makes this a very unique property. It could benefit from updating to todays taste. The windows are all single glazing and tired – so new double-glazed windows are needed. The big bonus is the terrace of around 30 m² and the atelier space that is to be found underneath. Due to the location in the village there is no private parking with this property but there is parking close to the property on a first come first serve base. This is the perfect holiday home with great letting potential and is also suitable for all year round living if you install a heating device (edit: it appears there is a spot for a woodburner in the living area!).
