Property Description

Grand village house with plenty of character for sale in sought after village in the Minervois, offering over 200m² of habitable space comprising 5 spacious bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a private, sunny courtyard, a terrace and a workshop.
The property which is on 4 floors occupies a central position in the village, close to the river and commodities. It has been restored retaining the original character of the building, with many beautiful period features such as the original tiles and fireplaces, yet accommodating all modern conveniences such as a new heating system, electrics and plumbing.
On the ground floor, the entrance hall leads to an open plan kitchen/living room, with a focal fireplace and glazed doors onto the courtyard, on the one side, and to a formal salon on the other. The first floor comprises 2 bedrooms, both with en-suite bathrooms, whilst the second floor has another 2 bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite bathroom. There is also a utility room on this floor. The top floor attic room has its own sitting room and bathroom.
The spacious courtyard of around 50m² is very intimate, overlooked by a terrace accessible from the first floor landing, and a gallery that runs along two walls that works as a suntrap. Off the courtyard is a storage room with electricity and plumbing already in place, that could be converted into a workshop or more habitable space.
The location, layout and character of this house make it an ideal proposition for a bed & breakfast or a spacious home with a separate letting unit. An interesting, characterful property with income generating potential!
