Property description
A large, 18th century, luxurious home and its parklands in the immediate proximity of conservation areas between Béziers and Narbonne - ref 231826
This property is set in the midst of the countryside in the Languedoc region, far from any nuisances, in surroundings composed of vines and scrubland. Béziers is 15 km away, Narbonne 24, Montpellier 80 and the sea 21 km away. It is in an area where all construction is banned. The Canal-du-Midi is nearby.
This residence was once an old Cistercian barn and two large, triangular arched arcades can still be seen in two of the ground floor rooms. Extended and transformed over the ages, it has been in the same family for more than 500 years. It was the centre of a vineyard.
On land spanning a total of more than 1½ hectares, two buildings set at right angles to one another flank a large courtyard, raised in relation to the parklands by a few steps.

The 18th century residence

This residence is divided into three large, intercommunicating flats, with additional communal rooms. Two stairways provide the links between the floors. Each flat spans two levels.
In times gone by, the accommodation was contained in a single wing. The other, more recently converted wing was used for utility purposes: an old, tall wine storehouse, spanning approx. 220 m², still takes up the entire lower level and has a separate entrance on the parklands side.
The first flat comprises a large living room, a kitchen, five bedrooms and four shower rooms.
The communal areas include a living room, a lounge, a library, a kitchen and three bedrooms, each with its own shower room.
The second flat has a living room, a kitchen, a ladies’ sitting room, three bedrooms and two shower rooms.
The third flat, with a lift, comprises a large lounge with the stairway, two bedrooms (one of which has a small roof terrace), a bathroom and a shower room.
The attic could be converted into several additional rooms.

The parklands

These partially walled parklands comprise a vegetable garden on one side with, further away, an old greenhouse missing its glass and a swimming pool. Featuring many old pathways, they are enhanced with superb trees, hundreds of years old.

Our opinion
The layout of this L-shaped house creates a private area under the unblemished sky of the Languedoc region. Numerous French windows blur the distinction between the external natural surroundings and the inside. The interior decor, with triangular monumental arches, massive beams, age-old stairways and old floor tiles, is immediately of great interest and yet remains welcoming. The layout of the premises is ideal not only for accommodating a family but also for seasonal rentals. The only neighbours are the vines and the scrubland.
