Cobbled roads leading up to this beautiful chateau are reminiscent of driving around an ancient village in Provence.
The house greets you with an architectural-statement entrance and arched hallway leading the entire length of the home.
The ground floor flaunts a light filled ambiance with toned-down period pieces and striking silhouettes that bring a sense of old-world charm and mystique to the house. This level comprises of a designer kitchen with a large walk in pantry & a scullery, dining room and lounge with an oversized fireplace as focal point. The double volume ceiling with exposed trusses used throughout this space creates an airy, spacious feel while the wine cellar carved into the wall down the corridor represents the feeling of tasting wine in the South of France.
A separate lounge / TV room with mezzanine library/study and wood-fired stove as well as the indulgent, 4th en suite can also be found on this level. This en-suite, boasts a walk-in closet and opens up onto a courtyard with a heated pool and a landscaped garden with a mix of indigenous, Provençal plants.
This lush, inner courtyard offers an undercover veranda with a bar counter and roller blinds that counteract the summer sun - a real sanctuary to entertain and relax. This additional guest suite can be accessed from within this courtyard while the laundry and service room can be accessed via the rear courtyard.
A sweeping curved staircase leads you to the upper level that offers 3 very spacious, en-suite bedrooms - all of which enjoy magnificent views of the surrounding countryside and each having their own Juliette balcony. There is an open plan pajama lounge/study area on this level.
