Near the historic center of Eguisheim, a famous medieval town on the Wine Route elected “Favorite Village of the French” in 2013, whose narrow streets wind in concentric and multicolored circles around its castle, this elegant winegrower's house of 284 sqm of living space fits on a plot of 690 sqm without vis-à-vis. The charm of this mansion built in 1792 and its outbuildings is expressed by its traditional architecture and its inner courtyard, a real haven of calm sheltered from prying eyes.
Upon entering the mansion, visitors are transported to the peaceful and intimate atmosphere of the place.
A Vosges sandstone porch marks the entrance and extends onto a paved driveway around which the different spaces are articulated: a workshop currently used for storage, a 60 sqm awning, the former store with generous volumes of 75 sqm also accessible from the street and a cellar of equivalent surface area housed in the basement with 2 vaults with ideal conditions for aging wine.
A pink sandstone staircase leads to the first level. A passageway overlooking the courtyard forms a link between on the one hand 4 rooms surmounted by an attic lending itself perfectly to the reception of guests and on the other hand the dwelling. The visitor enters the latter through a winter garden bathed in light adjoining a small living room and a kitchen extended by a double living room with period parquet flooring and a ceiling height of 2.65m, unusual for such a dwelling. The sleeping area offers 3 large bedrooms with a shower room and a WC. A convertible attic of 120 sqm completes this set.
This well-maintained family property has been the subject of regular and careful renovations which have made it possible to preserve its charm of yesteryear, including recently: repair of the roof and the glass roof, renovation of the facades, change of exterior joinery and maintenance of the woodwork. However, work is necessary to reveal its full potential and exploit the 583 sqm of floor space offered by the building.
FULL OF POTENTIAL
The reinterpretations of this ideally located and multi-faceted property will only be limited by the imagination of its future buyers. Very pleasant to live daily, it brings together in its current configuration the ideal conditions for a tourist rental operation.
As it stands, it is possible to easily create 3 apartments of a hundred square meters each in addition to the room on the ground floor which lends itself perfectly to the exercise of a professional activity, installation of a business, artist's studio or other meeting place that promises pleasant moments of conviviality.
There is also a possibility of rebuilding a barn at the bottom of the land with an area of approximately 150 sqm.
