Countryhouse St Basile
Beautifully restored house on a large property with a private swimming pool
Beautifully restored house of more than 300 years old(!), wonderfully restored, maintaining authentic details. This characteristic house is located on a large property with a private swimming pool in the north of the Ardèche in a beautiful area at an altitude of 750 m. You’ll never want to leave again! The house is situated on a very quiet road with maybe only 10 cars a day passing by. The well-known 11th century Chateau de Maisonseule is located behind the house, but can’t be seen from the house. You will enter the house in a large hall. From here you can go to the mezzanine, using an old staircase with a library; or you can go to the pleasant 65 m2 salon with beautiful ancient beams and high ceiling. You can sit down in one of the comfortable armchairs or sofas in front of the fireplace. A wonderful place to withdraw during a cool evening; a great spot in front of the fireplace, enjoying a good glass of wine. Through the hallway you can also reach the dining room, where you’ll find a long dining table and an extra room with a 3 metres wide fireplace. Next to this room you’ll find the fully modernised kitchen. Behind this kitchen is a bathroom with sauna and a washing room with washing machine and dryer. On the first floor you’ll find three bedrooms, including the master bedroom with an adjacent bathroom and toilet. There also is a second room with a shower. In front of the house there are two sunny terraces on different levels. Both feature adjustable teak chairs and deck chairs with cushions. The private heated swimming pool can be found a little further, behind the workshop. The swimming doesn’t contain chlorine, but slightly salty water. The house is located on a large property with forests and meadows around the house. You will have an unobstructed view on all sides and you can enjoy the serenity and the beautiful surroundings. Very suitable for people who love luxury, nature, walking, cycling and serenity and for people who care for their privacy. There is limited internet access (30GB) and no films and / or music can be downloaded.
