This lovely vigneron’s house, dating back to the early 1800s, has been entirely renovated with care and attention to detail whilst retaining the original features including pierre apparente walls.
Offering a habitable surface of 160m² and amongst its versatile features are a private professional recording studio designed by White Mark Ltd, double garage, atelier, office, a well-appointed kitchen/dining room featuring a ‘Smallbone of Devizes’ solid wood dresser with plate rack, a charming sitting room including a Godin wood-burning stove, dressing room, 4 elegantly proportioned bedrooms one with balcony and two with wash basins, a shower room, separate WC, bathroom with WC, a sitting room/study/writing room or extra bedroom off the completely private roof terrace, the ideal spot to breakfast on fresh baguette from the local artisan boulangerie whilst soaking up the Mediterranean sunshine! The house is ideally-suited as holiday home, permanent residence and/or recording studio.
Very well located in the centre of Pouzolles, the house is within easy walking distance of a Café Bar/Restaurant, Tabac/Presse, small grocer’s and Boulangerie. Local announcements provide information on regular stallholders visiting the marketplace twice weekly bringing a variety of fresh foods. Other useful facilities include a post office, primary school and bus connection to Béziers. The village has recently installed high-speed fibre optic broadband. Pouzolles is 4.2 km from Roujan which offers a large supermarket, pharmacy and petrol station as well as bars and eateries.
Entering the terracotta-tiled hallway we are presented with the two superbly designed air-conditioned studio recording areas. Either of these rooms would serve equally as a home cinema or gamer’s paradise! To the rear area is a kitchenette, small sound booth and storage rooms leading to an internal garage door. Within the double garage is a utility sink, washing machine connections and hot water tank. Off the corridor to the front is an office/reception area featuring a marble open fireplace. A staircase leads to the first floor lobby off which is the impressive open-plan kitchen/dining area. The end wall features a handmade “Smallbone of Devizes’” dresser unit with solid wood surface, deep drawers and storage under, with matching wall-mounted plate rack. Modern units incorporate the Calor gas hob, air extractor, electric fan oven, dishwasher and tall fridge-freezer. At ceiling level is an additional room air extractor; a restored pierre apparente stone wall faces the two circular double-glazed opaque windows to the rear. Continuing, there is an atelier with work bench, a dressing room and to the front, a sitting room with Godin log-burning
stove. Two bedrooms are situated on this floor, both with wash basins, one with tall French windows and small balcony. Also on this level is a shower room with washing machine and a separate WC. A further staircase leads to the terracotta-floored second floor and a spacious bathroom with WC. Benefitting from a large roof light, the space is bright and airy. Within this area is a storage cupboard that can be used to house the terrace furniture. Off the sitting room there are 2 further bedrooms. These rooms feature pierre apparente stone walls and Velux roof lights whilst the larger is enhanced by solid oak parquet flooring and windows looking onto the roof terrace. From the sitting room we enter the roof terrace via a double-glazed door. Completely private, this is the perfect place for sunbathing and relaxing. Finally, crossing the terrace, we enter a superb pine-floored spacious room with tall windows opening to the roof terrace. Ideal for reading, studying, writing or just watching TV, this room could also serve as a further bedroom.
Pouzolles is a short drive from the historic towns of Pézenas (16km away) and Béziers is 18km away. Both offer a wide range of shopping and eating as well as their atmospheric historic centres. The sandy beaches of the Mediterranean coast are around 35 mins drive. Montpellier is an hour’s drive on the autoroute. The closest regional airport is Béziers-Vias with connecting flights to Bristol, London Luton, Manchester and Edinburgh.
