|La Colline, Mirmande, Drôme Provençale, France.|
|A MAGNIFICENT FAMILY PROPERTY WITH PROVEN RENTAL INCOME, INCLUDING AN ANNEXE, 6 BEDROOMS AND SWIMMING POOL. SITUATED IN A VERY PRIVATE AND PEACEFUL SETTING JUST OUTSIDE THE BEAUTIFUL 12TH CENTURY HILLSIDE VILLAGE OF MIRMANDE.
Built in the 19th Century, this charming farmhouse represents a typical 'Maison de Campagne' in Provençe. Mirmande is listed as one of France's most beautiful villages with the immediate countryside comprising a profusion of fruit farming (Kiwi, Cherry, Apricot, Peach etc.) and charming villages with plenty of restaurants offering traditional French food.
The property is ideally located between 3 major cities: Marseilles, Lyon and Grenoble - all within 1 hour's drive from the village of Mirmande. The village has maintained its traditional way of life with its exquisite restaurants, friendly people and beautiful architecture.
This idyllic hideaway is only 10km off the A7 motorway that runs from Lyon down to Marseilles. The nearest towns are Montelimar & Valence which are approximately 20km south and north respectively.
The nearest airports of Lyon and Nîmes are 1¼ hours away. The TGV station at Lyon airport reaches Valence in 20 minutes. There are also airports at Marseilles and Grenoble which are approximately 1½ hours by car.
The house is surrounded by approx: 2.5 acres / 1 hectare of private land situated on elevated ground with splendid views into the valley and beyond.
The house is located at the end of a private lane and south facing, so benefits from the sun throughout the day. Its position is well protected from the famous Mistral wind which blows from behind the house.
The property has been recently renovated with great care to maintain the charm of the original features and there still remains much potential to develop the space between the main house and the Annexe. This space would make an ideal Conservatory or Dining Room, with large French windows at the front and would create the possibility of a floor above, hence joining the 2 houses and creating further Bedrooms.
There is also the opportunity to build on to the back of the Annexe and create additional en-suite Bathrooms.
|THE MAIN HOUSE:
The property comprises a hallway (with WC) leading from the main entrance into a spacious Drawing Room, Dining Room and Kitchen. These areas remain typically cool and airy but can also be very cosy with an open fireplace for the cooler evenings in the winter months.
Upstairs there are 4 spacious double Bedrooms and 2 large Bathrooms with shower, bath and WC.
Beside the main house there is a lovely self-contained Annexe comprising a Kitchen and spacious Drawing Room with far reaching views through French windows. There are 2 large double bedrooms and a bathroom with WC.
All the electrics, painting, plumbing and heating have been newly installed and the roof re-tiled. Much of the renovation has been done to a very high standard in order to meet the regulations necessary for commercial lettings.
|GARDENS AND GROUNDS:
The property benefits from a magnificent 11m x 5m Swimming Pool on the terrace below and in front of the house, with ample space for eating and lounging.
Large gardens both in front and behind the house offer a multitude of the typical Provençal herbs, flowers and trees. There are Olive and Fruit trees on the property and these could also be grown on some of the terraces above the house.
There is also extensive woodland and a small fish pond.
