Property Description

Character village house, fully renovated with 140m² habitable space comprising 3 bedrooms, small garden, balcony and garage, only 15 minutes from Carcassonne and 45 minutes from Toulouse.

Located on a hilltop at the heart of the village opposite a historic 13th century church, this house was once the Mairie/Maison du Peuple (town hall). It is still remarkable today with its original mix of stone and red brick facade. The property is built on a slope and therefore the back in on a lower level with direct street access.

The majestic solid carved wooden front door opens onto a spacious newly fitted kitchen with an island and a range gas cooker. The living room and dining room are at the back of the house with large windows and a balcony offering stunning views on the Pyrenees. To enjoy this view even more, it would be possible to significantly enlarge this balcony. The feature fireplace, the exposed beams and exposed stone and brick walls give a unique charm to the whole of the ground floor.

The stairs are also notable with an original carved hard wood banister. The three bedrooms, the bathroom and the toilet are on the first floor. The bedrooms at the back of the house have exposed stone walls and views on the Pyrenees. The master bedroom also has superb hard wood floors and a walk-in closet. The stunning bathroom has two washbasins, a shower and a cast iron freestanding bathtub.

At the top of the house, the attic has three small window openings and could be converted to provide additional living space.

At the garden level to the back of the house, there is a garden and an access to the garage from the road. The garage is spacious and has a corner for the laundry facilities. The other half of this floor can be an additional storage space or an exercise room.

This exquisite house is ready to move in and ideal as a family or a holiday home.
