Brief Description - Farmhouse and four gites
A 2.5 hectares estate nestled in the heart of the Verdon Natural Park with the spectacular Verdon Gorge and the Spa town of Greoux les Bains on your doorstep
This old farmstead dating from the early 20th century was part of the same family for 4 generations which included a former Maire of the area and comprises a central farm house and 4 separate gîtes, all of which have the ability to interconnect.
In more recent years a pool which has been dug into the rock has been added together with a pool house.
The property boasts lovely views and its flat land which is fenced all the way round provides home to 100 olive trees.
The land is suitable for someone with 2 or 3 horses (a previous owner having created a paddock on the land when they had horses).
The property is accessed via a 800m communal lane which the Mairie maintains and services twice a year. The lane is flanked by Olive groves along its length and provides access to the estate and to a small rental property and a second home. Both discreetly positioned and not overlooking or effecting the peace and enjoyment of the property.
Detailed Description - Farmhouse and four gites
The main house is accessed via a west facing terrace which overlooks the olive groves.
Entering the house from here into a small entrance hall with original provencal tomette tiles. Straight infront is what appears to be a cupboard but is infact a closed off staircase (the stairs used as shelves) with trap door above which connects to the cellar to the rear of the property.
Continuing straight on is the kitchen, bright luminous with breakfast bar. A glass door gives access to the rear of the property. Doubleing back from here is the utility room to the rear of which is a partially completed shower room with shower, WC and handbasin.
To the right of the utility is a pretty tiled lounge with original tiles of the era. Glass doors lead out to the terrace at the front of the property. A doorway has been blanked off which would otherwise give access to the gîte nextdoor.
This side of the property could from the kitchen be closed off to create a studio if so desired, the lounge doubleing as a bedroom.
Returning to the entrance hall to the right up a couple of steps takes you to the dining room with fireplace and insert wood burning stove. There are some original rock exposed in the floor the rest of which is covered with traditional tomette tiles. Behind the dining room is a large (25m²) luminous bedroom, with another cupboard that reveals steps to the garage at the rear of the property.
Continuing straight on to the left is a large shower room with access to the terrace with a connecting door to another bedroom which can also be accessed to the right of the principal bedroom.
This bedroom has a wide ladder which leads to the loft area with a window which has been used as an office or could equally be used as a dressing room.
In addition to the main house, there are 4 gîtes, 3 are single storey with the smaller one to the right of the house having a bedroom on the 1st floor. This gîte in addition to its own terrace has its own fenced garden area ideal for anyone with dogs.
To the left of the main property there are 2 gîtes of 55m² and 42m², the gîtes are fully renovated, insulated, double glazed, have their own electric meter and have reversible air con.
Both gîtes have the ability to interconnect and the first gîte can connect to the main house. They both have a double bedroom with 160cm beds. All the gîtes are well maintained and kept updated.
The largest gîte is to the rear (86m²) and has retained much of its original provencal character with exposed beams and stone and its origina provencal terracotta tomette tiles. This gîte has 2 bedrooms a double and a twin and like all the gîtes has its own private terrace, furnished for outside living/dining and with BBQ. It is possible to connect this property to the main house via a trap door in the lounge. The heating for this gîte is via a fireplace in the lounge and modern electric radiators. To allow for more space in this gîte the hot water cylinder is situated in the garage next door.
Outbuildings include a large garage with room in the loft, this connect to the main house where it would be possible to install a spiral staircase and extend the house into the room above the garage. Equally the ground floor of the garage could be used as stableing
The garage also has access to the wine cellar and store-room.
All the properties have use of the pool which has an automatic salt filtration system, the pump in the pool house has been recently renewed.
This is a wonderful opportunity to buy a home with an existing business with ongoing bookings and good revenue, which has been correctly declared and receives a 71% rebate on its revenue tax, making this an attractive proposition for those wishing to continue with the gîte rental business. Should this be the case the owners are prepared to leave everything in the gîtes to allow its immediate continuation.
This property could equally become one large family home but with independent living for an extended family.
Everything is ready for you to move in, the roof has been renewed in the past 10 years and the last control on the properties 3 fosses were all in order.
