Property Description

Elegant winemaker’s house dating from the 19th century for sale in a lively village close to Lezignan Corbieres, offering approximately 300m² of habitable space comprising 6/7 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, garage, attic and garden of around 300m², situated in a quiet cul- de-sac in the heart of the village.

This spacious property, which was originally 2 houses, has been modernized in the recent years and benefits from modern conveniences such as central heating and double glazing, yet maintains the charm and character of the original buildings, with many original features such as the encaustic tiles and marble fireplaces. There are 2 entrances to the house, a main entrance from the impasse in front of the house and a secondary entrance from a courtyard, where there is off street parking. The main entrance opens onto a hall, to the left of which is a bedroom (which is currently used as an office) with its own impressive bathroom and dressing room. To the right of the hall is a cosy living room that leads to a formal dining room with marble fireplace. The dining room opens onto a hallway from the secondary entrance, which also leads to a rustic kitchen with a large open fireplace, and to the garage.

There are 2 staircases leading to the first floor. The staircase from the main entrance hall leads to a landing off which there are 2 bedrooms, a second salon with French windows that open onto a small balcony overlooking the second entrance, an artist studio, a bathroom and a separate WC. The other staircase leads to a landing that opens onto a hallway connecting both sides of the house. On this side, there are 3 further bedrooms, one of which is currently the master bedroom, and a shower room. This staircase continues up to the attic, which is currently two rooms, both of which can be converted for extra habitable space if desired.

The delightful garden, which is separated from the house by a small impasse (only 3 meter wide), is large enough for a pool. It has some lovely period features such as the original forged iron gate and railings and a pergola. There is also a summer kitchen with a dining terrace.

In general, the property is in very good condition and decorative order. It is ready to move into, with potential for further development, if desired, and would make a spacious comfortable home or a characterful bed and breakfast establishment.
