with a cellar, in Burgundy’s Beaune
Set in the historic centre of Beaune, this flat is 10 minutes from slip roads for the A6 motorway, a crossroads providing links to Paris or Geneva in 2½ hours and Lyon airport in 1½ hours. The train station is just a 10-minute walk, as are numerous food shops, markets, restaurants and hotels. Beaune aerodrome, a 15-minute drive away, is open to civil aircraft. The town, in the heart of the “Climates of Burgundy” (Burgundy vineyards), classified on the UNESCO World Heritage List, acts as the Burgundy wine capital. Its world renown is also based on the wine auction held by the Hospices every third Sunday in November.
This flat can also be reached via its own private lift to be found in the vestibule of the mansion house’s first interior courtyard.
The only door on the second-floor landing provides direct access to a living room, with parquet flooring, via three interior steps. A vast cupboard. A fully-fitted, open-plan kitchen, with a central unit and travertine floor tiles. A hall area, set at right angles behind the stairway going up to a mezzanine, leads to the private lift and a guest toilet. A door opens into a first bedroom, with parquet flooring and a window, looking out over the interior courtyard. An adjoining shower room features a toilet, a double vanity unit, a mirror as well as travertine wall and floor tiles. The living room gives access to a second bedroom, with parquet flooring and a skylight, with a view over the interior courtyard.

The architecture of this property blends superbly with the centre of town and the character of Beaune. The complete renovation of this flat in keeping with the features, era and history of the building aesthetically provides all essential modern-day home comforts.
