The adage: 'To live happily, live hidden' sticks perfectly to this imposing and delicate building, tastefully renovated by its charming current owners.
Ideally located in the heart of Montélimar, at the gateway to Provence, this historic 19th century residence is set on a wooded plot of just under 3000m².
This extraordinary place, nestled in the town centre is a stone's throw from the Tgv station, allowing a daily connection with Paris, and only 1h30 from Lyon.
The Napoleonic style of this private mansion is reflected in the ornate facade which responds to the slate roof decorated with finials and roof spires.
The elegant building offers 450m² of living space spread over 3 levels.
Access to the mansion is via the porch with its double staircase.
Once the imposing wooden door has been passed through, a long corridor extends to the terrace and deserves an office, a dining room decorated with cement tiles as well as two bright suites facing the park.
The first floor, accessed by a majestic stone staircase, houses a vast kitchen-dining room communicating with a cosy living room with parquet flooring and a black marble fireplace that echoes the mouldings in the ceiling.
The charm continues in a spacious suite adorned with a white marble fireplace.
A discreet and welcoming stone staircase leads to the second floor, which was once the service staircase. It consists of 3 spacious suites elegantly decorated and a laundry room with access to the attic.
All 4 floors are also served by a lift.
The garden floor is made up of service and technical rooms that cross the building and overlook the park through the orangery.
The terrace overlooks the carefully maintained park with its century-old trees that surrounds this prestigious property and houses a beautiful swimming pool away from prying eyes.
Numerous trees isolate the mansion from the town centre, hence the feeling of serenity that emanates from it.
The former caretaker's house is adjoined at the back of the park to a remarkable gate that allows a second access.
The latter requires renovation work and has an independent entrance as well as an enclosed courtyard.
At the rear of the property, a secure metal gate provides private parking for 6 to 8 vehicles.
The property features all modern comforts (Cmv, water softener, air conditioning in each room) subtly integrated into the decoration.
This oasis of peace, which combines elegance and refinement, is ideal for a variety of purposes: from a professional project (private clinic, bed and breakfast, office, notary's office, law firm, etc.) to a family adventure.
