An elegant house from the 19th century and set off a road just outside the historic town of L'isle Sur la Sorgue. Famous for its waterways and antique shops and markets, L'isle Sur la Sorgue is also full of delightful cafes, restaurants and a maze of winding streets and hidden historic buildings. The house is a five minute walk from the centre of town.
All this and set in a region of culture, heritage and architectural delight not to mention the walks, rides and drives in amazingly beautiful scenery and is a voyage of discovery- breathtaking province. The house is on the outskirts of town and is covered with Virginia creeper- and called 'la maison poynder' (my maiden name!)
It nestles beside the road to Carpentras and once through the wide front entrance hall, as was the tradition in old houses, you discover a haven of tranquility and peace and head towards the leafy garden and glistening pool. The garden is full of delightful places to sit, read and eat at various times of the day according to your taste in light or shade.
On the first floor, to the front of the house, are three large, pretty double bedrooms each with a colour theme and decorated to a high standard. The bathrooms are all complete with baths are adjacent to each bedroom. Two of the bedrooms have double beds and the third has two single (which can be put together) all the bedrooms have large hanging cupboards.
To the rear of the house are two further bedrooms with an adjacent shower room with basin and wc. One of the bedrooms is the 'master bedroom' complete with four poster bed and the other has two singles together as a large double bed both pretty and overlooking the garden. The house was originally two houses and therefore has two staircases!
Cots and high chairs available as I have five grandchildren!
