Originally 2 neighbouring houses, the property has been made into in single residence. A pretty stone arched front door leads up to the main double height open plan living room of 30m2. This light and airy space incorporates a modern fully fitted kitchen and a living area surrounding a wood burning stove. Features such as exposed stone arches and beams retain the original character of the room. Up a few steps is the pretty main bedroom (10m2), a bathroom with bath and a separate toilet. There is a further bedroom (10m2) on the second floor with fitted cupboards and an extra storage area on the landing.
Towards the rear of the main living room a staircase leads up to a door giving access to the garden. Comprising 2 terraces on separate levels the garden is the jewel in the crown of this property, with exceptional views over the rooftops and beyond to the hills above and around the village. Raised above the noise of the village streets the garden offers a perfect sun drenched haven of calm to relax and enjoy this Mediterranean climate. There is also a workshop/storage area and an outside sink.
At street level there is a vaulted room (15m2) with cupboards and a concealed sink which could be used as a studio, office or even an additional bedroom. It has a doorway onto the street. On the other side of the front door, a stone archway opens into a beautiful stone vaulted 28m2 room with access into the main part of the house and a separate toilet. This space is currently rented out as a boutique but could equally be used as additional living space incorporated into the main house.
This property offers the perfect combination of the hustle and bustle of a popular tourist village with all the conveniences that offers and a haven of peace and quiet once inside the property and from its elevated garden terraces. Saint Guilhem-le-Desert nestles in the heart of the Languedoc countryside and the Gorges d’Herault and is just a couple of kilometres from the Pont du Diable, both classified as UNESCO World Heritage sites by virtue of their being on the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela. Developed around the beautiful Gellon Abbey, it is today a « classified site » and widely appreciated and visited. There is a good selection of restaurants, boutiques and cafes in the village as well as it being a haven for walkers, nature lovers and water enthusiasts, with canoeing on the gorges below the village. The closest bigger town is Gignac (12kms) with direct access onto the A75 motorway to Montpellier. The closest airport is under an hour, just 54kms.
