This handsome 18th century home is set on the market square of the bastide village of Beauville, with its arcades, shops and restaurant. There is parking on the square.
The house is approached under the arcades and into the entrance hall, with wood panelling and wooden floors. There is a lobby area. Ahead are double doors into the bright salon (40m2) with three windows looking out to the views. There are lovely wooden floors, a fireplace, a high decorated plaster ceiling and glazed door out to the sunny south-west facing, stone tiled terrace. This overlooks the garden and swimming pool and out to the valley below.
The archway leads through to the dining room with marble fireplace, wooden floor and two windows out to the square. The superbly fitted modern kitchen with long island with granite tops has a breakfast bar and a window out to the terrace.
Beautiful elm stairs lead up to the spacious and bright first floor landing which is really quite impressive. Two arches lead into a lovely double salon with wooden floor, two marble fireplaces, and four windows looking out onto the pretty village square. This can be used as a private salon by B&B customers. Cloakroom.
On this floor are two superb bedroom suites, currently used as a luxury bed and breakfast. Bedroom 1 (about 30m2) has fitted carpet, wood panelling and two windows with superb views of the valley below. The en suite modern bathroom has a bath and walk-in shower. Bedroom 2 (about 28m2) has a fitted carpet, two built-in wardrobes, views to the valley and a modern wet room shower. Stairs lead up to the upper gallery and bedroom 3 (about 20m2) with views over the square and a modern en suite wet room. Bedroom 4 (about 22m2) has views over the square and very spacious modern dressing and shower room. There is a small boarded attic, if further accommodation is required. Below the house is a wine cellar.
At the rear of the house is a wide, stone tiled sunny terrace with steps leading down to the 8mx3m swimming pool. This has a dining terrace at the end, on the ramparts, with stunning views to the open countryside. There is a small stone outbuilding housing the pool equipment. Pretty patio garden. Overall the garden/pool area measures some 125m2.
This beautifully appointed home is ideal as a permanent home for a family, or to continue the luxury B&B which would bring in an income. In both cases, being in the heart of this attractive bastide village means you will be a part of the community. The property is available largely furnished, by separate negotiation.
