Exquisite property

Mâconnais, wine-country farmhouse, Traditional farmhouse

Below a village known for its Romanesque church, this traditional farmhouse stands surrounded by grapevines in a peaceful hamlet. The 300 sq m two-level home boasts, in particular, a “galerie mâconnaise,” or covered balcony, and an overhanging roof in Burgundy flagstones. The interior also features period elements such as a stone fireplace and exposed framework. Ground-floor reception areas – entry hall, main sitting room, study, billiards room and kitchen – adjoin the sun-filled terrace. Located on the upper floor, beneath the eaves, are 5 bedrooms, including a parental suite, and 2 bathrooms. A pool and enclosed garden round out the yard. But what truly makes this property unique is its small vineyard (2.8 ha of vines and an opportunity to cultivate 5 ha more), belonging to appellation AOC Mâcon- Villages white. The vines, growing Chardonnay grapes, are conveniently located close to the vineyard buildings: the fermentation area and cellar below the house plus a large storeroom. Includes some winemaking equipment. Production is distributed by a local wholesaler.
