Full Description

Designed and built by the current owners in 2005, this detached, impressive 6 bed house of over 250m2 of habitable space, which boasts not only a large swimming pool but also a full-size all weather tennis court, is set in nearly 4000m2 of mature gardens, with magnificent views of the countryside from almost every room, yet is only a two minute walk to shops and cafe in the centre of a tranquil village.

Large iron gates give onto a graveled area in front of the house and provide off-street parking for 6 to 7 cars, with well-placed trees providing shade from the sun.

Ground Floor: a spacious reception hall opens onto a huge open plan living room with kitchen, dining and living area, and 4 sets of French doors opening onto a terrace. At one end is the fully fitted kitchen with a long breakfast bar, whilst at the other is the lounge with a chimney that's never been used, but which is ready to take a log burning stove or a full fireplace.

In a separate wing at an angle from the reception hall are 3 bedrooms (one of which is en-suite), a large library/TV room, a family bathroom, a dressing room and a utility room.

First Floor: a staircase from the library leads to the upper floor where there are 3 further bedrooms including a master suite with seating area, en-suite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe. The two other rooms share a shower room.

Outside: there are various terraces totaling over 50m2, with thoughtfully designed shaded al-fresco dining spots, where one can enjoy the stunning views around. The beautifully landscaped gardens lead down from the oval shaped pool (approximately 12m x 6m) in a series of steps, to the full- size all weather tennis court.

The property has a history of very successful summer rentals over the years, and is in immaculate condition throughout, with no further works required to enjoy it as a luxurious family or second home with strong rental potential.

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).
