  • Euro € 45,000
    • Horsham, susses, United Kingdom




A charming little house in need of finishing.
Plot of land measures ROUGHLY 150’x150’x100’ in a triangle shape.
The land has all been levelled and stepped in the local fashion with dry stone walls as it was once a small orchard.
It lyes on the edge of the National park and has unrestricted views across the edge of Bedarieux and out over the mountains.
The house is roughly 13’x25’ on 2 floors and 13’x13 on the ground floor.
We have worked out it could make a fantastic little 2 bedroom holiday home with the potential of fantastic outside living as the weather here is stunning in the summer and pleasant in the winter.
We have installed a new rustic roof and will finish this with the original canal tiles.
The top floor is brand new and can be finished with either ply or boards depending on your preference.
The property has 5 windows and 2 doors leading to the garden.
we can finish these in the original wooden shutter types if required.
The interior walls will need painting.
We have dug a trench for the Toilet and water waist.
The property has a drive with 2 entrances/exits to the top and bottom of the land.

• Several streets in Bédarieux retain their 17th-century architecture.
• The former castle, La Bastide dates from the fourteenth century. It has machicolations, arrow slits and a 16th-century well. A wooden beam has been dendrochronologically dated to 1350, but evidence exists to suggest this was part of adding the machicolations to a lower, squatter tower. The well, too, may date from this first construction by the Abbey of Villemagne, (a nearby village) as part of the defences of the ford crossing the River Orb. A document dated 1156 records the king, Louis VII, granting the Abbot the right to extend the fortifications protecting his properties. This, it is assumed, included the construction of La Bastide. The whole property was sold into private hands in the late 16th century, when it became a domaine owning all the land from its site to Bédarieux, two kilometres away.
• The Promenade de la Perspective (1742), a dyke built to protect the town from Orb floods, is lined with 200-year-old plane trees.
• 16th-century bridge over the Orb
