Property Description

Classic and elegant ‘Maison de Maître’, for sale in a busy medieval village close to Beziers, offering a total of approximately 375m² of habitable space comprising a 6-bedroom principal house and a 3-bed second house, with gardens, pool, garage and outbuildings all set in a plot of 1180m² located right in the centre of the village.
The Maison de Maître has been totally restored, preserving many exquisite period features such as the original tiles, marble fireplaces and ornate cornicing and mouldings throughout. It is on 3 floors, with the living spaces on the first and second floors, with a huge garage on the entire ground floor. The main living space is accessed via a wrought iron external staircase, which leads to the entrance door on first floor level. The entrance door opens onto a hallway which serves all the rooms at this level, namely, a living room, a dining room, kitchen, 3 bedrooms and a bathroom. From the hallway, there is also access to a south facing terrace that overlooks the courtyard garden. On the second floor there are 3 further bedrooms plus a bathroom.
Outside, there is a delightful enclosed courtyard garden, with a 7.5m x 3.5m swimming pool, summer kitchen and access to 2 stone barns of 150m² and 70m² respectively. Both have the potential for further development to create additional habitable space.
The second house is a fully renovated stone barn attached to one of the other outbuildings, offering around 92m² of habitable space, with its own private garden. On the ground floor, a triple glazed entrance door opens onto an open plan living room and kitchen. On the upper floor there are 3 bedrooms and a bathroom. The secluded garden is to the front of the house, and is large enough to take a pool. There is independent access to this house from the street.
This desirable property is ready to move into and offers good income generation potential. Independent access for both houses means one can be lived in whilst the other is rented out in the summer months. The entire property is in very good condition with nothing further to do but with the potential for further development, if desired.
