A totally unique stone property, directly on the Mediterranean Sea, in the greater Montpellier area, Languedoc Roussillon, South of France. This early 20th Century stone house was extended some years ago with creative ideas and became one of the most beautiful waterfront properties in the whole South of France. The current owner has devoted a lot of time, energy, talent, experience, passion, endurance and last but not least invested money to create an exquisite home. The property doesn’t just look gorgeous; it radiates a feeling of wellbeing, harmony, history and comfort. The renovation has been done with attention to detail using only quality materials. The mature garden is well planted and boasts numerous terraces that offer shade and sun according to the season. A property to fall in love with!
Description of the house
The stone house offers about 200m² of living space over 2 floors
Ground floor: Entrance into an inviting porch through a large contemporary door where there is already a view of the sea. A very functional and fully fitted open plan kitchen and dining area 24m² which opens out onto the large decked terrace on the border of the fine sandy beach. Cloak room with a guest toilet 4m². Several wide arches give access to the large living areas overlooking the terrace, sea and beach, consisting of a lounge 39m², cosy corner with an unusual fireplace 17m², TV area 7m², access to an en-suite guest bedroom 12m² decorated with fresh colours, which also has an independent entrance. There is a lovely harmony between the many arches linking all the rooms together, arched windows and a beautiful curved old staircase. What a view and atmosphere!
First floor: The stunning staircase leads to a large landing which is a family room and partly used as a gym area. There is a large suite with the master bedroom, en-suite bathroom with shower and toilet, walk in dressing room and an office/study. There are 3 similar sized bedrooms each with a mezzanine. On the opposite side of the landing area there is a large bathroom, an independent WC and a laundry area with an external staircase. All the bedrooms have access to a large south and sea facing terrace 13m². Needless to say that the view of the beach and the sea can be enjoyed over a long distance.

Huge decked terrace along the sea front with large awnings
An old authentic fisherman’s cottage is now a shower room with WC
Garage 31m² with the possibility to create a first floor

The garden of around 900m² is entirely enclosed and offers total privacy. Plenty of mature indigenous plants, bushes, shrubs and trees reinforce the Mediterranean feel. The garden is beautifully landscaped and easy to maintain, matching the style of the house. Mains water and sewerage.
Some years ago the property was entirely restored, extended and totally transformed. On the ground floor there is an under floor mains gas central heating system, the first floor is equipped with reversible air conditioning. The ground floor windows are security glass with interior blinds. The floors are mainly exotic wood, just the large part of the lounge and the landing on the first floor are seagrass. Some of the walls have exposed natural stones, which together with the beautiful floors give a warm feeling. Automatic gate with videophone and alarm.
This is a rare opportunity to acquire such a charming property with high standards on the sea front so close to Montpellier. This area of coast is rapidly gaining value as Montpellier becomes recognised as one of the best cities in France to live in. Its direct access to the beach, bright rooms, and generous plot of secure, walled private land, as well as the high quality of the house’s fixtures and fittings all add greatly to its desirability. A jewel to be visited!
