A 17th century house and its outbuildings enclosed by walls on the Provencal side of the French department of Gard.
In a village 8 km to the north of UzÚs, 20 minutes from motorways, 45 minutes from Avignon (TGV train station) and from Nîmes (TGV train station and airport). A school, a media library and a bar-grocery, run by an association, bring life to the village, set between two mineralogical worlds: standing on a band of limestone and delimited to the south by a hill of red stone, whose seams of ochre were mined by the Romans.
Landscapes are marked by vines and cultivated plains as well as the verdant desert of the scrubland, extending into the midst of the Gard’s Golden Triangle, between the RhÃŽne, CÚze and Gardon valleys.
The parish that settled on the site of an oppidum, experienced rapid growth notably in the 17th century and comfortable houses were constructed beyond the ramparts, all around the old citadel. The vestiges of the feudal castle bear witness to an unusual architectural wealth and notably still feature an outstanding Renaissance facade. This property stands on the east side of the moat, at the foot of the rampart, next to the church and the castle. Completely enclosed by high walls, it is constructed on a slope in a dominant position with “Le Brugas” (ochre hill) on the horizon and a vast stretch of fields extending the orchards.
The western section of this walled property contains an elegant, L-shaped town house set out around a top courtyard. Further down, on the east side, the property opens on to a terraced garden, delimited on the north side by a long, 2-storey outbuilding. This walled property is enclosed on the south-west side by a vast shed, overlooking the garden.
The facades of the house are lime-rendered. Displaying a discreet sundial on its second level, the main south-facing facade features perfectly aligned openings that are tall and straight on the ground and first floors and square under the eaves.
The various buildings are covered with Roman tiles. They appear to form a homogeneous group, despite being marked by the caesura of the right angle of the house, such that the property has two separate aspects. One reflects a subdued, classical appearance, whilst the other exudes a theatrical air with its cascading terraces and the spectacular alignment of the seven semi-circular archways of its covered gallery on the first level of the outbuildings.
The houseAlthough the classical style of the south facade bears witness to modifications most probably made during the 18th century (like the windows hinting at a gentle drop arch), numerous features, notably two Renaissance fireplaces on the first level as well as the surround framing the entrance door, topped with an oculus, are evidence of changes typical of the 17th century. A golden age for the area around UzÚs, this era saw simple houses and farm buildings transformed into elegant residences. The lack of a dovecote or other feature proving the worth of its owners tends to indicate that it belonged to one of the many traders who settled in the village, under the guidance of Mathieu-de-Bargeton Junior, recently bestowed a title by François 1st, and who purchased the entire Seigneury and its estate in 1536.
Garden level
The living rooms in the central building predominantly face south. The entrance door is set in the corner of the projection housing the half-pace stairway, constructed between the two parallel walls of the stairwell. A vestibule on the north side provides access to a dining room and a kitchen, the French windows of which open on to the courtyard. The decor in the dining room is especially refined, with its walls lined with re-used 18th century panelling, its fireplace and its exposed ceiling beams. Said room opens on the north side into a west-facing room in use as a bedroom. The kitchen,
