House Description:
This little French vacation home is less of a vacation with such a big garden.

  • Views are of the surrounding mountains and neighborhood.
  • The Basement is a large wine cellar with plenty of storage, a table to sit and taste wine, and a side room with presses.
  • Floor one has a small entryway with coat rack which leads into the living room/dining room with door leading to the back yard and garden. Off of one end of the living room is the kitchen. Also off the living room is a full bath with washing machine. Attached but with an entrance from the patio is a storage room with stairs leading down to the wine cellar.
  • Floor two up a set of spiral stairs mostly contains a large hobby room. Built on later is a small guest room with full bath.
  • Floor three is the master suite consisting of a modest bedroom and a good sized full bath.
  • Other buildings on the property are the large barn which is used for winter growing and storage on the first floor and a (mostly empty for now) hobby room/storage room on the second floor. There is also a shed just large enough to house the tractor in the middle of the oval shaped garden.
  • Outside is a small front porch and back patio for lounging. The majority of the backyard is taken up by an oval tractor track with a garden laid out around it. At the back right corner of the lot there’s also a couple of beehives.

    veg: bell peppers, potatoes, lettuce, onions, garlic, ghost chilis,
    fruit: tomatoes, apples, limes, lemons, oranges, pomelos, pomegranates, grapes, pumpkins, life, flame, watermelon, plums
