A Southern French Hacienda in a privileged setting with gorgeous views! Enjoy all the qualities of living freely surrounded by vineyards, nature and stunning views! Superb location for this quality property, in the middle of a hilly landscape with breathtaking views. It is situated just .... ....just a stone's throw away from the center of a small picturesque hamlet where time seems to have stood still. The center of St. Chinian is only a few kilometers away and there is a wide range of shops, terraces, restaurants and other amenities. The area offers a rich variety of daytrips and excursions. From the property one can walk or cycle quietly, for hours long. The cities of Béziers and Montpellier (each with their own TGV station and international airport) are about a 30- and 70-minutes’ drive away and the Mediterranean beaches about a 40 minutes’ drive by car. The Roman town of Narbonne is about 30 kilometers away. The villa was built during the years 2003 / 2004 on a crawl space in a regional and a Mediterranean- Hacienda style, surrounding a spacious courtyard with a fountain. It is characterized by its spacious rooms. It is the kind of property that immediately provides a holiday feeling, even though it can be lived in perfectly all year round. The property offers a built area of over 580 m² including the living area of over 225 m². The villa is almost all on one level and offers, among other, a spacious open plan area ( 97 m² ! ) with a beautiful high ceiling with beams, a fireplace and several doors to terraces and patio, 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and an office. Furthermore, this special house offers a very spacious garage, a summer kitchen with fireplace, a patio, several covered terraces, a utility room, a filter room for the pool. The house is solidly built. For example, the partition walls have been extended in the ceilings, for a better phonic insulation, and underfloor heating has been foreseen in a big part of the house ( but there has never been a need to connect it ). The interior walls are additionally insulated with cellular concrete and the numerous covered terraces have roof insulation to keep cool during the hottest days of the year. Furthermore, there is of course garden lighting and an alarm system with several cameras. The property is ready for immediate occupation but needs some finishing works to be carried out. The asking price has taken this fact into account. The architect wanted to achieve a harmonious whole with , in each room, a pleasant dose of light and a view on the patio or the surrounding nature. Today we can see that he has succeeded perfectly! Access to the plot (11,350 m²), which seems to merge with its natural surroundings, is via a unique driveway over the property’s own land or by a second entrance via the neighboring hamlet. The relatively low-maintenance garden includes a landscaped area around the house with a mature Mediterranean vegetation including oleanders, ornamental grasses, olive trees and pine trees. The lower part of the garden has a young olive grove and is deliberately and controlled left "wild". Here, for instance, you will find various wild local herbs. In the garden one immediately feels a sense of relaxation and savoir vivre, which matches the worldwide reputation of this region (Top 5 in the CNBC ranking!). The salt filtered swimming pool completes this property. This very spacious pool (about 15m x8m !) in a free shape is solidly manufactured with sprayed concrete and finished with a coating and filter system of the prestigious brand Diffazur. The infinity system accentuates the magnificent views over the vineyards and the rolling Mediterranean landscape. A uniquely designed property in which one can fully enjoy the Mediterranean climate during the 4 seasons. The rich, varied and distant views make this property perfect and a good investment opportunity. Exclusive listing. Viewings by appointment only.
