Property detail TANARGUE MOUNTAINS : Exceptional mansion from the 16th century
In The TANARGUE Mountains a ½ hour drive south of AUBENAS, with a beautiful view of the surroundings, an exceptional historic building, old mansion originally from the 16th century, rebuilt in the 18th century and completely renovated in the 1990’s (rough construction and roofs) with 3.5 ha of land. It benefits of a living area of 488 m2 in 3 buildings with 60m2 garage and 91m2 annex outbuilding, a 50m2 old chestnut barn and 130m2 vaulted cellars. Oil-fired central heating. Septic tank.
This exceptional 3-building Mansion, which together forms an inner courtyard with a beautiful lime tree, overlooks the landscape from the mountain slope where it was built centuries ago.
Large stone flagstones on the facade, which now serve as a pleasant shaded terrace, guides us to the majestic front door opening on a 15.37m2 entrance hall with a remarkable stone fountain.
In the extension of these spaces, walking through a stone arch that used to be the chimney of a gigantic fireplace, we reach the dining room of 30 m2 and the fitted kitchen of 20.63m2 and a utility room of 13.40m2 with built-in wardrobes. There is also a play area of 91.30 m2 in this wing and the 60 m2 garage.If you want more living space at this level you can easily convert these last spaces.
Back to the entrance hall, we find on the left a vaulted bedroom of 15m2 with a fireplace. Further, a second hall including a toilet and a staircase to the second floor, leads to 2 other bedrooms, one vaulted of 15m2 and the other one of 26m2 facing east, enjoying a bathroom of 5.60m2 and a separate toilet.
A wide staircase leads to a 63 m2 landing that serves as a sitting room and distributes 5 bedrooms with wall cabinets of 28,20 m2, 18 m2, 26,50 m2, 23,40 m2, 23 m2, 13,20 m2 and 2 bathrooms of 10 m2 and 9,40 m2 with 2 separate toilets. The attic is fully accessible.
Against the house is an old chestnut dryer that offers a vaulted room of 50.60 m2. At a lower garden level, thanks to the traditional construction on the slope, there are 4 cellar rooms of 20,60 m2, 30 m2, 27,30 m2 and 26,70 m2 and a 200 m2 medieval “maze” of vaulted cellars.
