House from the 70's Inspiration Maurice Sauzet Arles

Type Status

On a beautiful ground of 6500 m2, the old farmhouse of the XIXe century was enlarged by a modern construction realized by french architect Maurice Fornier in 1974.


Very representative of the regional architecture of the period, it is inspired by the constructions of Maurice Sauzet, french architect with a japanese influence.

The house is articulated in two wings joined by a beautiful entrance.

On one side, the living area offers beautiful volumes, such as the large living room and its high timber ceiling. It is completed by a pit with a fireplace, and a dining room.

The open plan set gives a nice impression of space and opens by wide bay windows on the covered terraces. The original kitchen has been extended and offers a beautiful space

with dining area and a cellar.

The other wing welcomes the bedrooms joined by a corridor with many cupboards. They also open on the terraces and the lawn. Access to the swimming pool is through an opening

that faces the main entrance and also from the 3 bedrooms.

A Japanese staircase leads to an office, or fourth bedroom, opening onto a roof terrace overlooking the landscape.

An awning brings together the main body of the house to the old original part which develops on 2 levels about 80 m2. This building is made up of a room

with French ceiling and chimney, a kitchen and 2 bedrooms at first floor, with bathroom. It needs a renovation to be optimized up to 3 or 4 bedrooms according to the need of each one.

The access is independent and overlooks the courtyard. The garage and carport as well as a cellar complete the ensemble.

Located 4 km from the historical center, the property is a strategic point, near the future center "LUMA Arles", with its tower under construction, due to renowned architect Frank Gehry,

which takes place in the ancient « parc des ateliers » area.

Arles, the antict city, with its "museum of archeology" , has turned to the future thanks to its photography art school and develops each year attracting more and more art lovers .

30 minutes from Avignon TGV station, this property is a real opportunity.
