Property Description

Classic grand village house for sale in a lively and sought after village in the Minervois, offering around 280m² of habitable space over 3 floors, comprising 2 reception rooms, 8 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, garage and courtyard.

The property is largely in its original condition, with plenty of period features throughout. On the ground floor, a long hallway runs through the middle of the house, with rooms off both sides. On one side is a salon and bedroom, which is currently used as a playroom with attached store room. On the other, there is a dining room and a kitchen. A door from the kitchen opens onto the garage, through which the courtyard is accessed. Off the garage, there is a new bathroom and a room that could be converted into separate accommodation.

On the first floor, a central hallway runs through the middle of the floor, opening at one end onto a balcony with lovely wrought iron balustrades. Currently there are 6 bedrooms, 2 of which are accessed through other rooms, so are ideal for conversion into en-suite bathrooms or dressing rooms. The master bedroom already has an en-suite bathroom.
The top floor currently has one bedroom but there are 2 additional rooms that could be converted to more bedrooms or even a roof terrace.
The property is currently used as a basic summer holiday home, and some renovations have been carried out, like the installation of a new bathroom. It is in need of general upgrading and refreshing/decorating throughout, including the installation of a heating system, but the roof is in good condition. With the potential for the creation of a spacious, characterful home, and its reasonable price, it presents a good opportunity for someone looking for a project on a small budget.
