(Including agents fees which are at the seller’s expense)

Renovation Project Provence - Brief Description

Rare opportunity to find a 16th century property, hidden away in the countryside of Provence

Habitable but should be considered more of a ruin, a legend of a bygone era.

This property is for those who want to be at one with nature but who have the means and capability for the restoration work required.

The property whilst hidden away is however nicely placed for access to Forcalquier and the motorways to the coast or to the mountains and ski resorts

Please note however that the long lane down through the trees to the property is better suited to those with a 4×4 vehicle

The property whilst requiring much work is a little piece of paradise which is begging to be returned to its former glory.

The living area which is L shaped wraps round the kitchen and the other part of the L is the dining area.

A door from the dining area leads out onto an open terrace ideal for alfresco dining which benefits from the sunny Provencal climate most of the year.

From the dining room you can access the bathroom, next to which, ladder- like stairs lead to the loft which forms the second bedroom.

There are various outbuildings on the land together with a deep well cut into the rock in addition to a natural spring, a water-catchment basin and mains water. Grounds of nearly 2 hectares.
