Welcome to ‘The Artists Loft’ a personal creation of Melanie & Francois and inspired by architect Frank Lloyd Wright. A very rare property which is hidden away from the bustle of Semurs’ town centre, the house & large terrace is nestled in the canopy of the trees with panoramic views of the vast private grounds below.
A 5 minute stroll and your surroundings change dramatically as you enter the Medieval town of Semur-en-Auxois, famous for it’s beautiful cobbled streets & imposing towers – the local offerings are abundance - Patisserie, Epicerie Fine, Cafes, Restaurants…Full amenities are on the outskirts of the town centre. (nb.very well positioned to visit Burgundy & accessible by TGV and autoroute).
Step into this open space…and feel the designers wish – an area which is contemporary, zen & mineral. The ‘open space’ has been cleverly carved up into zones –
For cooking - Heart of the home, central island fully equipped kitchen with impressive blue stone bar measuring 9m long.
For eating - In or out…the wall of glass slides into oblivion – prevailing a large terrace and views of green trees & gardens.
For relaxing - Lounge in front of the wood burning fire, take a dip in the large sunken ‘zen’ bath, re fresh yourself under the oversized shower.
For entertainment - The media lounge is a space of zen and has large flat screen TV, satellite TV, WIFI etc.
There are three double bedrooms split over two floors, accommodating up to six people. The downstairs bedroom is very spacious and also has an additional entrance door ( to the exterior of the property ) which is ideal for people who are a little more independent or people with limited mobility. The further two bedrooms are in the converted attic area and are accessed via a spiral staircase. ( n.b 3rd bedroom – the bed is non traditional - Futon style bed on the floor ) .
The pure joy of this property is the elevated terrace with panoramic views, which sits 7m above the garden below. This large decked area is where the two worlds ‘nature of the garden’ and ‘structure of the house’ collide. A truly wonderful outdoor area running the full length of the property – allows guests to relax in different areas and enjoy their surroundings.
