The intimacy of its patios with century-old trees
The uniqueness of the premises and generous volumes
The quality of the renovation


Eighteenth-century architecture, this superb, meticulously renovated stone bastide offers around 400 m2 of living space around two large patios/gardens, on a 1,137 m2 plot of land amidst vineyards, in Éguilles, in the Aix countryside.

Magnificently renovated by the current owner, a talented creative from the fashion world, this bastide of respectable age is now a welcoming cocoon. The façade has been restored to the splendor of its original stonework, and holds the secrets of prestigious parties and guests. A first patio in the shade of an incredible plane tree welcomes guests. Everywhere, elements of the past are magnified by contemporary interventions such as Corten steel joinery.
A luminous entrance with a large guest dressing room sets the tone: no compromise between utility and charm. The windows transform the neighboring vineyards into living tableaux. A play of levels marks the different spaces.
On the floor of the double living room, Agnès Emery cement tiles accompany the black metal beams to highlight the trace of a wall from the past and harmonize with the tone of the aged oak parquet.
In the kitchen, separate and convivial, the old sandblasted round beams, the white Zelliges pattern of the credenza and the oak fronts made by a carpenter give it the look of yesteryear. The fire in the large stone fireplace warms winter tables, while the shaded terrace refreshes summer meals.
The second floor is organized as a luxurious suite, with a spacious bedroom, bathroom, study and large dressing room. A large bedroom and shower room occupy the entire top floor, under the roof.
Under the stone vaults of the basement, a gym with spa and wine cellar illustrate the adage 'after effort, comfort'. A large office, a former recording studio with annexes, opens its bay windows onto a terrace made of old railroad logs, facing the garden.
Outside, the height of an old varangue protects the games of pétanque and gives the garden the feel of a second patio.
A beautiful stone-clad annex houses two separate guest bedrooms and bathrooms.
The nerve center of the property, the heated saltwater swimming pool adjoins the converted poolhouse, treated as a vacation retreat.

A property from a sublimated past, with many stories to tell...
