Charming villa built in 1981, situated on an elevated position on the banks of the Canal du Midi, offering approximately 130m²of habitable space, comprising 3 bedrooms, with a large garden, over ground swimming pool, garage, panoramic views and mooring permission for a boat.
The house is on two levels, with the main living space on a raised ground floor level. The main entrance opens onto a hallway leading to a large living room with a focal fireplace and double French windows opening onto a shaded terrace with views to the garden and the Canal. The hallway also leads to an office area and to the country style kitchen diner, which is fully fitted, utility room. There is a separate entrance directly onto the kitchen too. In addition, there are 3 bedrooms, a bathroom and a WC on this level.
A spiral staircase from the hall leads down to the garden level where there is a room (no windows), an annexe used as a craft room/sitting room, a cellar and a garage large enough for 2 cars.
Outside, there are various seating areas to take advantage of the views, and a shaded dining area outside the living room. There is also an above ground pool with views onto the Canal.
The property is situated in a ‘cul du sac’ with only 3 other houses, yet within walking distance to the amenities in the village.
