A flat and its private garden in a 19th century château, with a view of the Palais des Papes.
On the heights of Villeneuve-les-Avignon, with a fabulous view over the entire city of Avignon, the international theatre capital and a major tourist attraction, famous for its papal city, surrounded by ramparts and classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
In an area studded with trees, renowned for its calm away from the urban bustle, overlooking a meander of the Rhône and opening up a view of the Mont Ventoux and the Luberon and Alpilles hills.
A quarter of an hour from the TGV station, an hour from the airports of Marseille, Nîmes and Montpellier, benefiting from the extensive public transport network of the Greater Avignon Community of Municipal Authorities. Five minutes from the shops, ten minutes from seventeen secondary schools and four health centres, and the historic centre of Avignon.
Built during the French Third Republic by a rich industrialist from Avignon for his family, this manor house, which is called the 'château', stands exactly opposite the Palace of the Popes. Its exterior and interior architecture typifies the 'fin de siècle' (end of century) style, inspired by both the Anglo-Norman neo-Tudor style and the Italianate style of the grand villas of the Riviera. Located at the top of what was once its park, covering nearly 5 hectares planted with centuries-old trees of various species, the château is now surrounded by various houses integrated into a densely wooded area part of the same secure co-ownership property. From a stately gate, wrought in the “Rothschild” style, access is via a long winding road, lined with large trees, maintained by the co-ownership property. On the east side, the château facade features two-coloured mixed cladding with alternating coursed rose brickwork and dressed stone. Resolutely asymmetrical, the facade is enriched with recesses, colonnades, 'reigning transoms' between the windows, archivolts and bulb-shaped balusters, spread over three levels forming a true encyclopaedia of architectural decorations, such as the 19th century loved to produce and which the 20th century described as 'kitsch'. On the ground floor, a four-columned portico with Ionic-inspired scrolls rises from a forecourt supporting a terrace linked to the garden by a wide stone staircase. At the top, a loggia is surmounted by an acroterion in the form of an upright acanthus leaf and a turret with a four-sided slate roof. The château is divided into six flats. The flat for sale occupies the entire ground floor with its own private garden, which is accessed separately from the rest of the property through the historic entrance to the château, a 'fin de siècle' veranda designed during the great era of ironwork.
The flatIt extends over the whole of the ground floor, in what used to be the château's reception rooms. Once past the historic veranda at the end of a plane tree alley, access is via a panelled hallway and a wide marble staircase. A partition door with geometrically decorated stained glass panels from the 1900s opens into the flat.
Ground floor
The hallway leads to the main sitting room of impressive dimensions. The decor has remained in the same spirit as it was originally conceived. A painted wooden coffered ceiling tops the room. The window frames feature elaborate woodwork and the walls are panelled. The living room boasts a wooden fireplace carved in the Provençal style and opens out onto the terrace and the garden with a view of the Papal city. The sitting room serves the other three rooms; a wooden staircase with a balustrade climbs to the mezzanine and the kitchen. On one side, two double glass doors open into a room that is also panelled. The walls are divided into several sections including grisaille paintings of romantic scenes and decorative elements with …
