Timeless property, Luberon

Not far from the enchanting scenery of Luberon’s nature reserve, this distinctive property of almost 40 ha enjoys an unobstructed view of the hills all around.

“The domain is a tranquil oasis of greenery; it’s a rare find in this region,” outlines Luberon Investissements Immobilier. And the flora takes diverse forms, whether it’s trimmed lime trees, “stretches of vineyards and olive trees, or, closer to the house, an English garden”. Nestled in the midst of such lush vegetation, the property’s various constructions offer a total of 960 sq m of living space. The U-shaped main building has exterior walls in ochre stone, partially covered in ivy. The oldest parts date back to the late 18th century, while several series of extensions and additions have been carried out since. Inside is an utterly modern composition of spacious rooms streaming with light. Decorated in a subtle, unpretentious style, the house includes two reception rooms and thoroughly private living quarters. Each of the 7 suites comprises a bedroom, bathroom and dressing room and, in some cases, a study or lounge area. A large caretaker’s apartment, as well as several outbuildings, are also found on the domain. To the east is a garden, while the tennis court is set amidst a pine forest. Enjoying an ideal location, this property would provide an exceptionally rich and refined lifestyle for a family or could be converted into luxury guest bedrooms. Listing price: 6 360 000 euros.
