Superb renovated 4-bed house with guest unit and habitable ancient stone tower. Panoramic views over Gironde Estua
The main house consists of:
A well-fitted kitchen with breakfast bar, range cooker, double stainless steel sink, woodburning stove and dining space, with exposed dressed stone walls and large patio doors leading to the superb decked terrace with “bioclimatic” pergola (slats open and close by remote control to provide more or less shade and closes automatically when it rains). (23.5 m²)
Above the kitchen is a mezzanine study of 11 m² with a feature round window.
An arch leads through to the elegant living room, again with patio doors to the decked terrace outside, original fireplace, pellet burning stove, exposed stone walls and “cathedral” ceiling. Lovely view of the estuary. (24.4 m²)
On the ground floor is a bedroom of 11.58 m² with original pine floor and a bathroom of 9.54 m² with an extra large shower, bath, stone-look handbasin on a solid hardwood furniture base, WC
From this level there is an underground passage to the “cellar” of the adjacent tower. The cellar has been imaginatively converted to a shower room for the chambre d’hôte above and features the narrow stone steps originally used by the miller when the windmill was still in existence. The underground passage, having a constant temperature, comes into use as, what else, a wine cellar.
On the first floor are a landing with double doors out onto another decked terrace leading to the ground floor of the tower, two pretty bedrooms of 10.27 and 12.23 m², both with original pine floors, and a shower room with walk-in shower, vanity unit in red glass, mirror panel electric radiator, WC and view of the estuary.
Up one more staircase to an attic bedroom of 17 m² with sympathetic use made of the superb roof structure to create a sitting space and another for the bed.
Between the house and the adjacent guest accommodation is a boiler room/laundry room of 5.8 m². The living room of the “gite” is a generous 24 m² with a well-designed fitted kitchen featuring a bar unit, large patio doors to the outside terrace and a door to a shower room of 4.5 m² with corner shower, vanity unit, WC and electric towel rail. Upstairs is an attic bedroom of 17 m².
Behind the house, with entrance at the same level as the first-floor of the house, via the big decked terrace, is the tower, with its sitting room (diameter 3.2 m) on the lower-floor, with trap door to the shower room beneath then, via an external stone staircase, you walk up to the former chapel, now a delightful circular bedroom, with its fireplace and vaulted ceiling (diameter 3.2 m). Further up the stone staircase you reach the roof terrace with its unusual chimney and stupendous all-round views. You can imagine why the archbishop spent his retirement days here…
There is a storage building/workshop in one corner of the plot, generous parking space, mature trees, an infant olive grove, and a huge choice of places to put a pool if required. The size of the plot is such that it would be possible to build on to extend the accommodation or to sell part for another house if wanted.
Totally unique – must be seen!
