Property Description

Delightful village property comprising two independent houses, offering 175m² and 60m² respectively, sharing a common sunny courtyard with heated swimming pool, a developable garage, roof terrace and workshop located in the historical central of the village, within walking distance of all amenities.

The main house has been completely refurbished to very high standards, sympathetic to the original charm of the building and retaining plenty of original features. The main entrance opens onto a stylish dining room with high ceilings and a log burning stove. This room leads to a newly fitted contemporary kitchen that opens onto the courtyard connecting both the houses. The living room is accessed from the kitchen and has an entrance to a passageway with street access, which can be used for storage. On the first floor, there is a spacious room that is currently used as a music room but could equally be used as a second living room or a third bedroom. At this level there are also two further bedrooms, a large dressing room and a modern shower room. An original staircase leads to the top floor, which comprises a small gym, a private terrace and loft space.

The second house, which is independent of the main house, is located across the courtyard. On the ground floor there is a salon, a kitchen and a shower room. On the first floor there are 2 bedrooms and a WC. This property is currently used for visiting friends and family, but has all the potential of an income generating rental property.

The courtyard is an outstanding feature of the property, spacious yet private, with numerous different spaces for eating and relaxing. A door from the main courtyard opens onto a more secluded courtyard that houses a 4m x 2m swimming pool, with a decked surround, ideal for sunbathing. The heated pool has a built-in wave machine allowing for resistance swimming.
The property also has a large garage with a first-floor workshop with the same dimensions, which could be converted into more accommodation if desired.
This interesting property offer many possibilities, be it as a single home or as a vacation home, with the possibility of income generation and further expansion. Its location in this popular and lively Minervois village close to Narbonne and the Canal du Midi are an additional bonus!
