On the borders of the French department of Ardèche, facing Mount Mézenc, a mountain house built of volcanic stone.
At an altitude of 1,200 m and facing Mount Mézenc, this house stands in a small village in the French department of Haute-Loire near the culminating point of the Cévennes mountain range. The middle-mountain village harbours a wealth of architectural heritage bearing witness to its rich past: the church is listed as a French Historic Monument. Constructed in the 11th century from volcanic stone on Roman vestiges, its bell wall reflects a southern style. The still wild region has been developed around its natural heritage, currently much appreciated by enthusiasts of the great outdoors and mountain sports. Volcanic lakes, waterfalls and a village, exuding virtually unchanged authenticity. Epicureans will enjoy sampling the local beef, known as Fin-Gras-du-Mézenc.
30 minutes from Puy-en-Velay and about an hour from Saint-Etienne.
This house, near the village church, is set in the midst of its garden, spanning a surface area of approx. 1,900 m². The architecture of the house is typical of that found in this middle-mountain region. Its style has remained authentic, just like its construction materials: volcanic stone facades, a lauze stone slab roof and double windows. This property once housed the village priest. Now a family home, it still has all of its charm of yesteryear. The narrow street leading to the church runs alongside the property, surrounded by stone walls. A wide flight of stone steps goes up to the front door of the house. A double garage, topped with a little terrace, can be reached from the narrow street.
The houseThis house, built of volcanic stone reflecting bluish hues, comprises three levels of living space, each spanning approx. 80 m². The roofs are covered with the lauze stone slabs that are characteristic of the area and well-suited to the region’s mountain climate. The facades feature double windows with a row of small windows preceding the over-hanging eaves. All the openings, including the front door set in the centre of the facade, are enhanced and framed with dressed stone surrounds.
Ground floor
The wooden entrance door opens into a small vestibule which provides access to a reception room. This dining room has a kitchen at one end. The welcoming, spacious room features exposed ceiling beams. The exposed stone walls, reflecting bluish hues, are pointed with a pink lime-rendering that blends beautifully with the pink floor tiles and their inlaid, blue-grey decoration. A series of old doors adjoining the kitchen conceal a toilet. A laundry room. A stairway, going upstairs, separates the dining room from a lounge. The latter is illuminated via a wide opening, providing access to the garden, at the foot of a row of plane trees. The ceiling beams are exposed. A fireplace hangs in mid-air. A door in a corner of the room leads to a small wine cellar.
First floor
This level has old walnut wood parquet flooring throughout which blends perfectly with the ceilings and their exposed beams. Four bedrooms, two of which are enhanced and heated by a marble fireplace. Each has a view over the garden or the lauze stone slab roofs of the neighbouring village houses. A little room laid out as a study could also be used as a child’s bedroom. A bathroom, with a free-standing bath and a toilet.
Second floor
A second wooden stairway goes up to the top floor of the house comprising one, vast room. The parquet flooring blends perfectly with the exposed, barrel vaulted roofing framework. This room is illuminated via a series of little windows and openings.
