The original main entrance opens into an imposing entrance hall with original paneling. The hall gives onto all the principle ground floor rooms.
To the left of the hall is a 70m2 entertaining room with an original marble fireplace. This is a well lit room, with windows to South and East aspects and french doors opening onto the south facing lawn with magnificent views of the Pyrenees.
To the right of the entrance hall is a library/dayroom, which also has an original marble fireplace. A door leads from this room to an inner hallway off which is a large bedroom with ensuite bathroom.
At the far end of the main entrance hall can be found the fully fitted kitchen, which has granite worktops and a range of appliances. There is also a guest cloakroom on the ground floor. A further door leads to a stone staircase and down into the original wine cellar, which has been perfectly preserved.
Beyond the entrance hall is a large dining space which has been skillfully converted from the original outbuildings into a contemporary living space. This room has full height glass doors, which open onto a further outdoor dining space with feature chimney and sink recovered from the original kitchen. Spectacular views over the valley to the Mountains beyond, complete this tranquil space. A staircase leads from this room to an upper gallery, which is perfect as an artists studio or simply a space for relaxation and admiring the view!
The original oak staircase leads from the main entrance hall to the first floor landing, which is of the same proportions as the entrance hall below. 4 large bedrooms each with an ensuite bathroom are accessed from the landing. French doors look out onto the garden at one end of the landing. At the opposite end is a 50m2 room, which could be converted into a gym or a games room.
The original staircase continues from the landing to the attic space, which is full height and could be converted into additional accomodation if required.
