The renovation


Architecture of 1726, this magnificent presbytery of 326 m2 develops on four levels on a plot of 239 m2 integrated into the old ramparts of the ancestral village of Rochegude in the heart of Drome Provençale, a stone's throw from Grignan and a few minutes from the TGV station.

Completely renovated with care, the house has retained all its original elements: old terracotta floors, stone fireplaces, stone staircases, and its worked wooden door which reveals the age and construction of the historic residence. On the first level, a ceramic workshop lit by southern light, the village's former post office, calls for creation. A cool bedroom closes this first level. The magnificent staircase in ocher natural stone from Saint-Restitut, the backbone of the house, serves each floor. On the upper level there are two beautiful bedrooms as well as a bathroom in the rock and a huge cellar. On the third floor, an elegant living room decorated with its majestic stone fireplace, as well as two beautiful bedrooms share a bathroom with hazel-colored tiles. Extending outside is a terrace with a view of the ramparts and the old cloister with mullioned windows, which houses a swimming pool hidden from view. An artist's studio with its beautiful glass roof accommodates two bedrooms and a bathroom. On the top floor of the building, the kitchen mixing zinc gray and Raujolles terracotta extends onto a second terrace where a gentle tranquility reigns at the foot of the magnificent bell tower which points its spire into the blue sky. The view is breathtaking over Mont Ventoux, the vineyards, the lace of Montmirail in the distance, the lavender fields as far as the eye can see and in the foreground the houses with roofs ranging from pink to brown ocher. An intermediate terrace ideal for relaxing on hot summer days, listening to the concert of cicadas above the pines, reminds us that here is already Provence. A large garage completes this exceptional property.
