LUXURIOUS PROVENCAL BASTIDE – 5 HA HOBBY VINEYARD IN AOP COTES DE PROVENCE
VINEYARD OF 5 HA IN AOP COTES DE PROVENCE
This glorious vineyard property is situated at the centre of the Var, at the heart of the Côtes de Provence appellation, in a classically Mediterranean setting of umbrella pines, vines and oleanders. The property is just one hour away from both Marseille and Nice international airports. It is easily accessible being only a few minutes from a motorway exit.
This splendid old bastide has undergone an elegant restoration in recent years. Stylishly renovated with high quality materials, the house offers nearly 600 m² of living space. The ground floor comprises a Provençal kitchen, several living rooms, offices and a spacious dining room with fireplace. The 1st and 2nd floors include 5 bedrooms, three of which with ensuite bathrooms.
The house has been superbly finished to a very high standard (terra cotta tiling, under-floor heating, air-conditioning in most rooms…) and the rooms are airy and well-lit.
The 6 x 12 m swimming pool, with automatic pool cover, and the pool house are found 50 m from the house. Offering around 200 m² of living space, with vast bay windows, the pool house is a veritable Summer House, and has been renovated to the same standard as the bastide (air-conditioning/under-floor heating, high-end furniture and appliances, bathrooms and multi-jet shower…). The unit is excellently maintained.
The 8.5 ha property includes 5 ha of vineyard classed entirely AOP Côtes de Provence. The vines are well kept and the varietals correspond to the appellation requirements (Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Ugni Blanc).
The vineyard is farmed by contractors who also vinify the harvest, enabling the present owners to market a small range of rosé, white and red wine.
Price guide: 2 500 000 euros net vendor, stock and standing crop to be added. Agency fees of 5% net of VAT and legal costs to be added.
