Detailed Description

 

Traditional Stone Mas not overlooked and with fabulous views of the Luberon and surrounding vineyards .

The property which was bought in Autumn last year has due to unforeseen circumstances been reluctantly put back on the market. There has been some sympathetic updates to the property in between time, including downstairs flooring and decoration (in keeping with this wonderful property), stone pillars and new gates now adorn the entrance, also work in the garden and around the pool has further enhanced previous renovations which have all been made using authentic materials.

The house is situated between the town of Apt and the pretty perched village of Villars with its famous bakery. The house is set in 1.3 hectares of land with various trees and shrubs and is alight with colour in summer. The property has a guardian who looks after the land the pool and house and who has installed a watering system on the land ready for a new orchard and there is also a house keeper. An ancient spring exists on the land and the property is surrounded by vineyards.

Steeped in history the property is believed to be a former chapel

Whilst walled up now there is also a tunnel from the utility room/cellar which was used as a “cache” and escape tunnel by the resistance fighters in the second world war .

The house comprises on the ground floor living/dining room, kitchen, cellar/utiliy room, hallway and bathroom. First floor lounge, bathroom and 2 large bedrooms, second floor another large bedroom/artist studio with balcony leading to an external stone staircase giving independent access.

There is a lovely pool surrounded by a stone wall within which are discrete lighting which illuminates the pool in the evening.

For those needing more space there is a conservatory planned to the rear ( this simply requires a declaration and not planning) an ideal breakfast room behind the dining room, although most dining is outside for most of the year. A pool house of 40 m² is allowed which could be used as a Gîte, together with an extension of the property by around 1/3 rd as well as the option to extend into the existing garage or come up another floor to the same height as to the right of the property.

The property had been a permanent home for 23 years to its previous owners until last year, however for several years now it has been let as a Gîte in the summer months as the elderly owners found the summer heat too hot for them.

The property has been recently rewired and has had a new fosse installed

This offers excellent value lovely situation and lots of potential.
