Dating from the C11th and boasting a 2.000 year old olive tree in the garden, a truly unique and very attractive, converted priory near Saint Paul, in perfect condition with thick, exposed stone walls and enjoying beautiful, flat gardens. Thoroughly and tastefully renovated, whilst preserving all the original features and charm (vieux feuillets floor tiles, vaulted ceilings etc) this fabulously charming "demeure", certainly one of the oldest in Saint Paul and an important element of this historic village's patrimony, also benefits from easy access to the shops and the motorway, all day sun (but also numerous shady areas) and, again quite unusually for a house of this age, large, relatively light rooms. It also includes a former chapel and numerous other ancient olive trees (producing an excellent olive oil). Living area 260 m² The handsome and well weathered front door opens into the hallway and then into the generously proportioned, south facing living room (43 m²) in the centre of which is of course located a large fireplace. The hall also gives access to the superb, typically provençal kitchen (20 m²), with its large adjoining pantry at one end and French windows directly onto the main terrace at the other. Leading off from the living room is a further large room, currently used by the owners as a study and a dark room but that could easily be used as a home cinema or library/office. On the first floor : A superb master suite (24 m²), facing south with views over a wisteria covered pergola and a huge en suite bathroom (16 m²) with its adjoining dressing room. Also at this level are three further bedrooms (15, 13 & 10 m²), one with its en suite bathroom, the two others having a communicating bathroom. On the second floor is situated a fifth, very comfortable guest suite (24 m²) with its adjoining study that again can easily be converted into a bathroom. Annexes : In the grounds : A separate small chapel used to store garden furniture, adjoining the main house: a boiler room/store room. The grounds : 2 500 m² of perfectly flat gardens including a large pool with surrounding terrace, attractive lawns, a barbeque area with pergola, a vegetable garden and a chicken run.
