Small chateau in the town
AIX EN PROVENCE
Reference: FHS 531
In a park of 2Ha only 5 minutes from the Cours Mirabeau, this house was built using the architectural style of 19th century Italy and has kept the unique charm of this period.
The present owner bought it in 2001 and following very extensive work on the buildings and the gardens it became a magnificent ‘period chateau of the 19th century’.
There is 800m² living space + a large caretaker’s house, 20 metre heated swimming pool in black marble with overflow.
There are four floors on which are the different bedroom suites of which 5 have either a private sitting room or study. Two other bedrooms with bathrooms which are independent of the main house on the ground floor. A delightful terrace on a part of the vast roof leads to a turreted room.
The drawing room (100m²) with its magnificent fireplace in stone opens on one side to the garden and the pool from a wide balcony and on the other a large picture window give a superb view, especially at night, over the town of Aix.
The decoration has been exquisitely chosen to respect the architecture of this unique property. The gardens are sober and refined, the southern façade is reflected in the waters of the superb pool and the elegant poolhouse is almost hidden by its greenery.
No photos can reflect the nature of this property – a visit is essential to appreciate its character and feeling.
