Built on 15th century Cistercian ruins, this charming substantial Mediterranean style villa has been fully renovated to feature high-end comforts including underfloor heating throughout and double glazing. Set in 4.5ha of olive and pine trees in the popular Minervois region of Southern France, this property really feels like a private retreat but is within 1 hour of international airports and the Mediterranean coast.
This is the dream property for anyone who enjoys entertaining with its spectacular stone caves including a projection screening room, games room with pool table and bar area, and wine cave. Outside, there is a private pool, substantial terraces, and even a wood fired pizza oven. The property has five individual garages and several large workshop areas which can be used as a gym area, workshop, atelier / studio, or developed further (subject to necessary permissions). There is also an orangerie / veranda area with floor to ceiling windows with views out over the garden (currently used as a home gym and would also make a fantastic artist or yoga studio). The property is surrounded by vineyards and is sunny year-round. The current owner even has olive oil made from the property's own olive trees!
This really is a unique property that would suit someone looking for a luxurious main home with large grounds and the workshop and studio space. Alternatively, it also has huge potential to build on for someone looking for a unique space to host events, and extend the buildings to create an exciting and lucrative revenue generating tourism business.
