In the heart of the vineyards of Corbières, Lagrasse is one of the most alluring places in the South and it has been ranked among the most beautiful villages of France. Overflowing with restaurants, art galleries, historical monuments, and lively with summertime festivities, but never overcrowded.
With an exquisite attention-to-detail, this architect designed house is perfect for anyone looking for either a holiday getaway or a full-time place to live. Alternatively, as a potential investment, you could easily establish a Chambre d’Hôtes.
Entering this 1838m2 property you’ll be immediately captivated by the 360° picturesque view and the beautifully landscaped Mediterranean garden flourishing with lavender, oleander, and many other native trees and plants to the region. The pathways and barriers have been built with locally mined stones. The basin burgeoning with water lilies is reminiscent of a Claude Monet oil painting. The cypress trees, along with the olives, and Italian Stone Pines give the region a Tuscany-like feel. The garden also includes an automatic watering system for those dry summer months.
Designed for entertaining, you’ll find a swimming pool with a retractable cover, an elegant wooden deck and a pool house to spend your summer days basking in the sun while sipping rosé. There are 4 independent spacious terraces with their own lighting, each providing a unique exposition to the sun to allow for a diversity of relaxing areas day and night.
Ascend the romanesque stairway into this upscale home and you’ll be taken aback by the open space it renders. Exquisite beamed wood ceilings and a fireplace bring warmth to the family room and the ox-eye windows along with the gorgeous anthracite glass doors with a southern view ensure it’s well-lit year-round.
The extravagantly designed fully-equipped kitchen is perfect for entertaining guests or family members and the appliances have been intimately hidden behind artisan-designed cabinets. The barstools are great for a quick breakfast while conversing with the cook.
Overhead you’ll notice a beautifully wood-designed mezzanine where you can spend a cozy afternoon enjoying your favorite novel with a cup of tea or use it as a separate sleeping area for your children or grandchildren. Just under your feet, you’ll feel the warm sensation of the heated floor tile which is used throughout the living room and kitchen area. This allows for efficient heating while the Greek-style floors are attractive and easy to care for.
All five of the bedrooms have been conveniently designed on the west side of the house composed of 2 floors to give you a peaceful night’s sleep secluded from the rest of the home all within a few feet of the elegant bathrooms which feature Italian showers, double vanity sinks, and a bathtub fit for a prince. Each of them has a private door leading to a balcony that is perfect for savoring the sunset.
Last but not least, you’ll have plenty of storage space for your vehicles and other possessions with the 30m2 garage and the attached utility room. Additionally, there is a wine cellar large enough to store your favorite regional wines from the Corbières and Minervois.
Lagrasse is just an hour from Bèziers (airport), 40 mins from Carcassonne (airport), and only 40 minutes away from the beaches of the Mediterranean. It also has its own post office, pharmacy, bakery, school, doctor’s offices, and a local Gendarmerie.
Reasonably priced and situated in a calm, exclusive environment, you’ll be close to town, but ensured to be living a serene lifestyle in this beautifully chic, contemporary home.
