Listing type: Under Offer
Plot Size 143 m²
Habitable Area 180 m²
Property type: House
Beautifully finished village house offering almost 180m² of habitable space comprising 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, with a sunny and private courtyard garden and two terraces, located in a touristic village close to Capestang and the Canal du Midi.
This three-storey house has been completely renovated to a high standard, with a new roof, façade, new electrics and double glazing throughout, yet retaining the charm and layout of the original building.
On the ground floor, the entrance hall opens onto a light and airy salon with a number of windows of both side of the room, as well as a glazed door onto the courtyard, thereby bringing in plenty of light. There is a feature fireplace, with heat distribution pipes to the upper levels. The salon leads to the fully fitted kitchen with glazed double doors opening onto the courtyard and a pantry. There is also a guest toilet at this level.
An open staircase from the salon leads to a small hallway at first floor level which gives onto a bedroom with balcony, a second bedroom and a family bathroom with large bath. Also on this floor is the master suite comprising a bedroom with two set of glazed double doors opening onto a private terrace overlooking the courtyard, an en-suite shower room and a dressing room. One set of the double doors leads to a private staircase that goes down to a small square behind the house, allowing this room to be converted into a studio apartment with private access, if desired. There is a small enclosed space at the bottom of the staircase, large enough for storage of a motorbike/bicycles.
On the top floor, there is an open plan loft space (or 4th bedroom) with original floor tiles. This space is fully insulated and could be converted into 2 further bedrooms or a bedroom plus office, as desired.
Outside, the attractive courtyard is very intimate and private, with decked flooring and a door opening onto the small square. In addition, there is covered space that is used for storage at the moment that would be ideal for a summer kitchen.
This delightful home has been loving restored and well maintained, ready to move into immediately. It would function equally well as a cosy family home or as a ‘lock up and go’ holiday home.
