This is a beautifully renovated village house marrying in perfect harmony the old warm exposed stonework with modern steel and glass. The renovation was done by a young architect who was determined to suffuse living spaces with light giving the house an 'open' plan feel more in keeping with a New York penthouse than a viticole wine 'cave'.
'George Brassens' is situated in a quiet wine growing village of around 320 inhabitants. The entrance to the house itself is through the original wooden 'cave' doors - they open onto a small courtyard from where the house is accessed via large glass doors.
The main living area and fully equipped modern kitchen are ingeniously centred around a second interior courtyard.
The large glass sliding doors open out completely losing all division between 'exterior' and 'interior' space. Most of the materials used for the renovation are authentic and 'organic' - original stonework, wood, salvaged beams and plastered ceiling 'a l'ancienne'. Walls are decorated with lovely modern paintings and the kitchen is state of the art and 'sexy'.
The 4 bedrooms are upstairs - one with a private 'roof terrace' and two overlooking the interior courtyard. All upstairs bedrooms have lovely wooden floors - the master bedroom is en suite.
An office area (off the landing and also overlooking the interior courtyard) has a set of fitted wardrobes and there are a further 2 shower rooms and an independent wc.
