Close to the village, this house surprises by its volumes. Set on 4 hectares of land, the old farmhouse has been completely restructured and extended. It has been transformed into a very tasteful contemporary construction. The main living room of 100 m2 is spectacularly high, as is the staircase, which is reminiscent of architect Frank Lloyd Wright's esthetic’s. The challenge was to unite the two floors with a magnificently integrated mezzanine. The 1 000 m2 of the house are divided into two independent and communicating units. The original part is occupied by the owners, who reserve the more recent construction for guest accommodation. There are 7 suites in all, each of about 30m2, with en-suite bathrooms. Interior patios, a fountain, terraces and a large forecourt mark the character of this property, which combines old and contemporary styles successfully. The swimming pool is set apart, with its pleasant summer lounge. The land is home to an olive grove and other crops can be envisaged if desired (larger olive grove, almond trees, etc). The icing on the cake: you can walk or cycle to the heart of Lourmarin.
Lourmarin is located 45 minutes away from Marseille-Provence international airport and 40 minutes from Aix-en-Provence and its TGV station.
We like: the stunning volumes, the renovation, such a space at walking distance from the village.
