This property is set near to a village, with some 800 inhabitants, in the foothills of the French department of Ardèche. The village, steeped in history, is mentioned as of the 12th century as a stopover along the route from Le-Puy-en-Velay to Jerusalem. Although in the countryside and benefitting from a panoramic view, this property is but 20 minutes from Tournon-sur-Rhône and 50 minutes from Valence with its TGV train station and its 135-minute links to Paris several times a day. Lyon-St-Exupéry airport is 90 minutes away by car.
This square tower is entirely built of stone. It spans four levels and is topped with a hip roof covered with Roman tiles. The windows are filled with small-panes. A south-facing terrace, paved with small tiles, provides a panoramic view. A series of bungalows stands on a lower level, in the direction of the swimming pool. These small wooden constructions also have a south-facing covered terrace. One of them comes with the tower, together with a horse loose box in one of the co-owned buildings which houses a riding arena. This horse loose box could, of course, be used for storage purposes.
The bungalow and the horse loose box
This property also comprises a wooden bungalow and a horse loose box. The bungalow stands, with the others, along an alleyway on the estate. This small wooden house comprises a suite consisting of a bedroom, a lounge area, a shower room and a toilet. The lounge area opens via a wide picture window on to a covered, south-facing terrace. It has a panoramic view.
One of the estate’s buildings houses a riding arena as well as a loose box, simply waiting to accommodate its horse. It could also be used as storage space.
The co-owned property and its facilities
This estate, set at the end of a little lane passing through countryside typical of the Ardèche, extends over approx. 3.7 ha. In a dominant position, it has an exceptional panoramic view. In the midst of umbrella pines and Florence cypress trees stand some superb, renovated stone constructions, exuding their strong, authentic character. A few meadows contain horses and contribute to a feeling of peace and serenity.
The houses, in an old 18th century building, have been cleverly converted in order to provide each of the six residents with their own privacy.
The swimming pool has been installed below the houses, out of sight of onlookers, in a slightly undulating section of the grounds. A wide paved terrace flanks the pool and its pool-house.
The ambitious conversion of this old 18th century tower has proved extremely successful. The building, renovated using first-class materials, has lost none of its elegance and gained in appeal courtesy of a good measure of fantasy. The estate is harmonious and tranquil.
Newcomers will have use of the swimming pool without having to be responsible for its upkeep. They can make the tower a holiday home unless they are attracted to the idea of living peacefully all year round in the heart of a wild, authentic Ardèche.
