A long avenue of trees leads to the main house surrounded by fields in an agricultural zone.
There are several outbuildings which stand behind the house, some of which were sold to another owner. The land has a well, a former rainwater recovery basin and a waterwheel. The country house sits in a green oasis surrounded by old trees, including sycamores of over a hundred years old. The two upper floors can see the sea at the harbour of Toulon.
The house is built on three levels with three windows, the first being separated from the second by a row vertical bricks. The first floor leads out on to a large terrace lined square terracotta balusters. With its gazebo, it allows to enjoy the freshness and shade brought about by its plane trees.
The country house:
Facing south, its openings are mainly in the south, east and west.
Ground floor: Three stone steps lead from under the covered terrace, the same width as the house and enclosed by walls. The front door, with its impressive fanlight and carved stone, opens into a large hall where the floor is square stones and ceiling decorated with a circular fresco of cherubs.
To the west, a large living room of 50 m2 with 4 m high ceiling and two openings to the west, to renovate. Columns support a cornice that runs all around the room.
To the east, a dining room and an old kitchen. This level is not habitable in its current state. A spiral staircase, red hexagonal floor tiles, wooden nose and wrought iron railing, and a vestibule at the end. A door on each side opens into a storage space.
Split level, landing with a north facing window north leads to a toilet and shower. Then the staircase divides into two flights to reach the other floor.
The first floor level and one above are habitable. South side are three rooms equipped with French doors opening out on to the large terracotta terrace. With Parquet floors. East side, a large room with fireplace facing north-east and south, an open plan kitchen and a bathroom with an adjoining toilet. Two other bedrooms open to the south and southwest on to the terrace, facing west and the final one northwest.
Second floor - From the first floor, a central wooden staircase leaves, mid-level separates into two flights leading to the upper level. The landing and all the floors are finished with hexagonal or square red tiles. As there is no attic, roof eaves/framing are fully exposed, which gives a pleasant feeling of space. To the east is a large room with a corner kitchenette, closet under a window with four openings. The upper floor also includes three bedrooms south, southwest and west, laundry, toilet and a bathroom.
