This wonderful modern house has the most sublime views imaginable and is actually the old Saffron farm.
Set high on the very edge of the pretty village of Artigues and with fantastic views over the village to the distant mountains. Artigues is just 2km from Axat which has all commerce and the famous swimming pool (more detail later).
A private drive leads to the house from the village.
To make the best of the views the living accommodation the house faces directly south. The very large open plan lounge/kitchen/diner (55m²) has a very high ceiling to expose the wood beams and superb sliding picture windows out onto the sun terrace and the views. The kitchen is clean and fresh and has all the built in appliances that you would expect. It is to the rear side of the space and is next to the side terrace/garden which has a gazebo to protect from the bright sunshine that this region is famous for.
Above the lounge you have the mezzanine area which is split into a library (25m²) and the master bedroom (49m²).
Off the living space you have three of the four double bedrooms (15m², 14m² and 15m²). There is a large wet room/shower room with twin rectangular was basins also a separate wc.
Downstairs there is a huge triple garage (65m²) and workshop (about 16m²) and three further rooms which have previously been used for the processing of the saffron production. All the rooms are in sound dry condition although the floor is not tiled. There is a newly installed oil central heating boiler and oil tank as well.
The gardens are to all sides and the house has the most wonderful views. You can view eagles flying over the distant mountains and it is a very quiet location despite its closeness to Artigues. Just 2 km away is the lovely small town of Axat and the direct footpath down beside the stream that drops down the valley is rather shorter and a very nice walk.
