Property description
Close to Aigues-Mortes, in the Camargue region, a former hunting lodge awaiting restoration - ref 296731
At the gates of the fortified town of Aigues-Mortes, seaside, emblematic lakes of the Camargue, and vast stretches of sand are very near; a natural paradise for birds and horses. A tourist route runs along the property.
Former headquarters of a vineyard planted on sandy soils, the house was also used as a hunting lodge by its owners. The vineyard was sold in years past and its wine storehouses too. The property currently spans approx. five hectares of wooded parklands, featuring pine, oak and plane trees.
Built at the turn of 20th century, with stone and brick toothed quoins and frames around the openings and a roman-tiled roof. This long property comprises, on one side, a large house and its outbuildings, partially converted into a separate flat, leading on from it, and on the other, a garage and large woodshed.

The house

Two-storey (approx. 180 m2 each) under the rafters. The attic area was initially intended as the service quarters and currently awaits restoration.
It is actually remarkable that the rooms have remained as they were at the time of construction: parquet floors, wainscoting, stone, terracotta or cement floor tiles, fireplaces, oven and wallpapers in places. Only a central heating system has been added and a new roof. Restoration works should take care to preserve all these original features.
The south-facing facade opens on to a large terrace, then a few steps before leading to the parkland below.

The adjoining flat

Attached to one of the house’s dividing walls, part of the outbuildings has recently been converted into a two-storey flat spanning approx. 60 m2 on each level. The ground floor comprises a large living room with fireplace and kitchen; the first floor divided into two split levels, a wardrobe, shower room and two bedrooms.

The outbuildings

Leading on from the house, a 70 m2 garage and woodshed, about the same size follow. The very high ceiling would make it easy to create two levels in this space, if required.

Our opinion
Given its location, this roadside property would be ideal for anyone interested in setting up a business in tourism, either a hotel and restaurant, arts and crafts activity or small shop. The old-fashioned and unique charm of the interiors is sure to please enthusiasts keen to preserve its period features while undertaking the necessary restoration works.
