description

Overview

Fabulous historic property in the centre of an historic village in a quiet location.  Built in 1856 for the owner of a local cork factory and was what they call “une maison de bouchonnier”.

Interior and Garden

The property has been renovated by current owners with taste and sympathy to the architectural features, of which there is an abundance from the original stone staircase, tiled floors, plaster work, marble fireplaces and possibly the best stone kitchen sink I’ve ever seen!  Nicely proportioned rooms with good ceiling heights and large windows, the house has been upgraded with double glazing and is heated by piped village gas.  The people who originally lived here had a typically bourgeois way of life and the house has two staircases, (the service stairway at the back of the house was probably used by the maid who had her lodging in the attic).

The Area

Located in a central yet quiet spot a two minute walk to the town centre with all amenities, Mézin was quite famous in the mid-nineteenth century for manufacturing corks (bouchons). This trade employed most of the local population and the house belonged to a cork factory owner.  The cork trade started to dwindle after the 1920’s as most of the cork oaks froze during unusually harsh winters.
