Property Description


The streamlined design of the building hugs the natural contours of the land to benefit from the grandeur of the site while remaining almost unnoticed itself. All main rooms face south and have the same panoramic views, with the land falling enticingly away into a patchwork of fields and woods stretching to the horizon and the backdrop of the Pyrenees.



Once inside, the visitor is immediately struck by the extraordinary amount of light, with the countryside almost entering the living space. The accommodation has a highly efficient linear layout giving the impression of an apartment suspended in the countryside. The living, kitchen and dining areas flow together with easy access to the terrace deck and swimming pool. The bedroom wing comprises three elegant suites, each with its storage area, shower room or bathroom. All rooms are linked by an open passageway, lit by high ceiling windows along its 33 metres of length and a line of sight across the pool of 60 metres. All decoration is in white, with the same travertine stone flooring and the bedroom doorways open the full ceiling height of 2.9 metres.



To the rear are the service areas including cloakroom, utility room, heating plant, wine and wood stores and a lockup garage/workshop and carport a level above. With ground source heating, solar and photovoltaic panels on the roof, the total energy cost averages an impressively low figure of 70 euros per month.



Outside



Guest parking area beside carport and lock up garage. Steps lead down to the main entrance door, set within a timber-panelled wall



Swimming pool, 12x4m, framed by walls in exposed stone and set within a paved surround. In-pool safety cover. Pool plant at basement level, with saltwater filtration system and heating from the geothermal installation.



On the flat roof above the main living rooms are solar panels for domestic hot-water and photovoltaic panels generating electricity which is sold to the grid.



Land



2.016 hectares in all. Across its entire width, the land falls steeply away in a majestic roll, giving panoramic views over a patchwork of woodland and fields to the final backdrop of the distant Pyrenees. The lower grassland is hay-cropped by a neighbouring farmer which leaves gardening limited to mowing the upper contours. Feature plantings include cypress trees, American oaks and several rows of olive trees.
