Viewing is invited for this former silkworm hatchery presenting over 300 sqm of liveable floorspace on an attractive drystone-terraced plot nearly 5,000 sqm in size, in complete peace and quiet. The property has been renovated using fine materials, respecting the spirit of the place while providing it with modern comfort.
Once inside you will find, on the ground floor, a large hall, a study, a utility/boiler room, a professional kitchen with cold store, a large (70 sqm) lounge/living room/dining room and another kitchen/summer lounge. You cannot but be touched by the old-world charm pervading this home with its Provençal ceilings, its vintage terracotta tiles and the wrought-iron and wood staircase custom-built by a local craftsman.
Upstairs are three bedrooms: one 28 sqm in size with bathroom/toilet and an 18 sqm terrace, one with shower room and 16 sqm terrace, and the third with shower room, office nook and toilet. Some steps lead up to a 14 sqm former attic converted into a children’s dormitory.
A 38 sqm garage adjoining the house rounds things off, along with a wine cellar.
Outside, you will appreciate the view and the tranquillity of the attractively landscaped terraced gardens, as well as the swimming pool, which will delight all and sundry.
As for facilities, you will have the benefit of a water softener, several shaded terraces, automatic irrigation and outdoor lighting.
The villages of Caseneuve and Saint-Martin-de-Castillon are less than 5 minutes’ drive away and offer all the amenities of a Provençal village: bakery, small minimart, typical restaurants, traditional markets and local entertainments.
The property has the advantage of the ability to complement its role as a main residence by com-bining it with a hospitality business (already in place), or it can become a family home and an ideal Luberon pied-à-terre.
