Lourmarin. A true Luberon dream. This is a stunning property, surrounded by vineyards between the lovely villages of Lourmarin (the town of Albert Camus) and Cucuron. This authentic old stone farmhouse dating back to 1860 has been completely renovated and extended, in a very elegant and chic manner, using only the highest quality materials. This is a truly exceptional property that is being sold fully furnished and is set in the middle of 6,59 acres of landscaped gardens in one of the most desirable locations in the southern Luberon, over which it enjoys exceptional 360° views.
The house is approached via private road lined with lavender, and before arriving at the main house we pass its productive olive grove (with around 100 mature trees), a fruit orchard and some truffle-oaks. The beautiful gardens with their breathtaking views of the Luberon are entered via stone arch with an adjoining fountain, which completes the sensation of entering an oasis of peace and beauty. The landscaped gardens have been designed around a spacious pool area, and have been meticulously maintained by experienced gardeners. The main accommodation offers approximately 300 m2 of living space, and is composed, on the ground floor of: a large entrance hall, a spacious kitchen with pantry and fireplace, a very inviting and luminous main reception lounge with high ceilings (4m 30), a stone fireplace and retracting patio doors that open completely onto a shaded terrace to create a true feeling of inside/outside living space. This south facing terrace with its pergola adjoins directly a covered terrace complete with summer kitchen facilities and BBQ. Also on the ground floor is a master bedroom with ensuite bathroom (bath, shower, toilet), dressing room and direct access to the gardens. There is an adjoining artist’s studio of 25 m2 with high ceilings (4m). This studio could be transformed into a fifth independent guestroom or a gymnasium. On the first floor are the three bedrooms all with ensuite bathrooms (shower & WC), all with excellent ceiling heights (3 m 50). There is also an office area, which enjoys splendid views out over the gardens. To gain maximum benefit from the long Provencal summers, the property has an expansive south facing terrace that (120 m2) and lead to the 12m x 6m swimming pool complete with its shaded lounge area and outdoor shower. There is shaded parking underneath a pergola for guests and a separate main parking area for the property which can accommodate three cars, and several storage rooms for garden equipment. Water for the property is sourced from its own filtered spring, whilst water from the Luberon canal is used for the gardens. The house enjoys gas central heating. The property is situated 60km from the Avignon TGV/Eurostar terminal, 40km from the TGV station of Aix-en-Provence and only 50km from Marseille International Airport. This is a truly exceptional property that is being sold fully furnished and is set in the middle of 6,59 acres of landscaped gardens in one of the most desirable locations in the southern Luberon, over which it enjoys exceptional 360° views.
