Property Description

Authentic partly modernized village house offering 170m² of habitable space currently comprising 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, with a large undeveloped attic space, set in a private plot of around 600m² close to all shops and amenities in this popular and lively Minervois village.
On the ground floor, there is a large living/dining room, a kitchen and a summer room with sliding glass doors onto the garden and traditional open fireplace; a shower room and a workshop, whilst the first floor comprises 4 double rooms, a bathroom and another double room that can be used as a dressing room or converted into another bathroom. All the bedrooms have lovely period features such as marble fireplaces and original tiles.
The large undeveloped attic has approximately 120m² of useable space and a large existing window, so can be converted into further habitable rooms.
The good sized garden is very private, with several mature fruit trees, a well, a shed and a hen house. It is possible to install a swimming pool, subject to the usual declarations and permissions. There is off-street parking for at least 3 cars.
Some modernization has already been undertaken, for example the installation of a heat exchange pump and 3 reversible air conditioning units, as well as double glazing throughout. However, the property is in need of a new kitchen and new bathrooms. It is being marketed at a modest price, so there is plenty of potential to create a unique home with character and space, in a sought after village.
