House Description Of The House

Description of the house
The stone house offers about 200m² of living space over 2 floors
Ground floor: Entrance into an inviting porch through a large contemporary door where there is already a view of the sea. A very functional and fully fitted open plan kitchen and dining area 24m² which opens out onto the large decked terrace on the border of the fine sandy beach. Cloak room with a guest toilet 4m². Several wide arches give access to the large living areas overlooking the terrace, sea and beach, consisting of a lounge 39m², cosy corner with an unusual fireplace 17m², TV area 7m², access to an en-suite guest bedroom 12m² decorated with fresh colours, which also has an independent entrance. There is a lovely harmony between the many arches linking all the rooms together, arched windows and a beautiful curved old staircase. What a view and atmosphere!
First floor: The stunning staircase leads to a large landing which is a family room and partly used as a gym area. There is a large suite with the master bedroom, en-suite bathroom with shower and toilet, walk in dressing room and an office/study. There are 3 similar sized bedrooms each with a mezzanine. On the opposite side of the landing area there is a large bathroom, an independent WC and a laundry area with an external staircase. All the bedrooms have access to a large south and sea facing terrace 13m². Needless to say that the view of the beach and the sea can be enjoyed over a long distance.

Heated swimming pool 4m diameter, with counter current and Jacuzzi
Huge decked terrace along the sea front with large awnings
An old authentic fisherman’s cottage is now a shower room with WC
Garage 31m² with the possibility to create a first floor
Parking for 5 cars

The garden of around 900m² is entirely enclosed and offers total privacy. Plenty of mature indigenous plants, bushes, shrubs and trees reinforce the Mediterranean feel. The garden is beautifully landscaped and easy to maintain, matching the style of the house. Mains water and sewerage.

General condition
Some years ago the property was entirely restored, extended and totally transformed. On the ground floor there is an under floor mains gas central heating system, the first floor is equipped with reversible air conditioning. The ground floor windows are security glass with interior blinds. The floors are mainly exotic wood, just the large part of the lounge and the landing on the first floor are seagrass. Some of the walls have exposed natural stones, which together with the beautiful floors give a warm feeling. Automatic gate with videophone and alarm.

This is a rare opportunity to acquire such a charming property with high standards on the sea front so close to Montpellier. This area of coast is rapidly gaining value as Montpellier becomes recognised as one of the best cities in France to live in. Its direct access to the beach, bright rooms, and generous plot of secure, walled private land, as well as the high quality of the house’s fixtures and fittings all add greatly to its desirability. A jewel to be visited!

Interested in this property? Don't lose out to currency fluctuations changing the price you pay…

Many overseas buyers in France do not realise they can lose thousands of pounds through adverse currency exchange rate movements.

The property buying process in France takes time; it could be up to six months between seeing the property of your dreams and actually taking ownership. So how much would this €3,770,000 property cost you?


Property Price € Minimum cost in the last six months Maximum cost in the last six months Fluctuating exchange rates over the last six months could have increased the cost of this property by
€3,770,000 £3,130,947 £3,419,579 £288,631

The exchange rate on the day you make an offer on your property in France will not be the same as the rate you pay when you complete on your purchase, as currency markets move constantly. Any large rate movements may take it beyond your price range as the chart above illustrates the fluctuation and how much extra your property could have cost you.

The best way to avoid this significant risk is to plan your budget and currency strategy with an experienced currency specialist. They have been known to save you up to 4% compared to many high street banks, £4,000 for every £100,000, which soon adds up. They will also keep you up to date on market movements, help you set a rate in advance with a product called a Forward Contract - so you know exactly what you will pay for your property in sterling.

This is why we recommend Smart Currency Exchange Ltd. If exchange rate movements continue to be as unpredictable and as significant as they have been in the past then by not using Smart Currency Exchange Ltd your property could cost you £288,631 more.

And then you have the additional saving from their better than bank rates - 1% on the minimum property cost above is a saving of £32,422.
