Full Description

Exceptional Maison de Maitre of the nineteenth century, former home of the village doctor, offering approximately 270m2 of living space with 5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms on a private plot of approximately 400m2, located in a dominant position in the heart of the village.

Behind an old wrought iron gate and fences, the impressive facade of the property is what catches the eye. From the raised garden, a classic double staircase leads to the main entrance.

Ground Floor: a vestibule with stained glass doors opens onto a large hallway. On the right is an exceptionally well-preserved reception room with an original marble fireplace, a magnificent rose ceiling and vintage wall cladding, adjoining a bedroom with bathroom with separate WC. To the left of the hallway is an office connected to a charming integrated kitchen. It opens onto a sunny terrace overlooking a walled garden on one side and a dining room on the other. The dining room, which used to be the original kitchen, features an impressive "Languedocienne" open fireplace, with an operational bread oven, decorative tiles and brass accessories. A laundry reserve is also located on this side of the corridor. The main staircase leads to the lobby of the first floor.

First Floor: the landing is joined on each side by 2 twin rooms with connecting doors. They could be used as a suite or separately. A small transversal corridor leads to a bathroom and a laundry room.

Outside: a first raised garden at the front, with mature plantations give the property an aire of intimacy. On the side of this garden a beautiful wrought iron gate opens onto another garden at the same level as the street, behind large wooden doors with access to the street. A stone staircase leads to the terrace on the first floor. This private garden is ideal for a swimming pool. The property also benefits from a large garage on the ground floor accessible from the street on the side of the property, with parking capable of accommodating up to 6 cars.

This majestic property has been carefully restored by the master craftsmen and materials of the time. Thus its original character and layout have been preserved, as well as the many original features such as cornices, moldings and woodwork, original tiles, fireplaces and wall claddings found in several rooms. Its majestic and unique character make it perfect for upscale bed and breakfasts, or as a luxury private residence.

The department of Herault is in the Languedoc-Roussillon region located in the south of France. It is surrounded by the Pyrenees-Orientales, Ariege, Tarn and Aude departments.

Widely regarded as possibly the most dynamic department in Languedoc Roussillon with Montpellier as its capital and the popular seaside resorts of Sete and Grande Motte bringing in millions of tourists every summer, the Herault department is certainly busy and growing.

But despite all the activity along the coast, the interior of Herault is as beautiful and unspoiled as it has always been. The Herault countryside is glorious, driving away from the coast into the foothills of the Black Mountains you can get lost in an ocean of vines.

Villages in the department of Herault are incredibly pretty. Roquebrun is stunning, with its bridge and old water mill on the river Orb. St Guilhem-le-Desert is also beautiful - and one of Languedoc's top tourist spots.

Herault is also a favourite of Brits looking to move to the area. Pezenas and Lodeve are both popular towns - Pezenas used to be the region's capital and is becoming quite chic.

In short - the department combines beautiful countryside with the buzz and glamour of a major city (Montpellier).
