Full description:

For sale by Century 21 ACI, Quillan. A great opportunity for somebody with competent DIY skills (or working in the building industry) to purchase a spacious, three-storey corner property in the historic centre of Quillan, just a few minutes' walk from its shops, restaurants, bars, summer festivals and public transport facilities. The property was originally constructed in an Italian style for well-to-do Quillan family in the 19th century, and was last lived in as a family home at least 50 years ago. In consequence the interior of the property needs completely refurbishing in line with contemporary standards, including rewiring and stripping, felting and insulating the roof. It is however in good structural condition and is connected to the electricity, water and mains drainage systems (subject the purchaser taking out the relevant supplier contracts).

During the 1980s/90s the ground floor was used as offices by a regional newspaper and in consequence the staircase to the upper floors was removed. Currently the upper 2 floors can be accessed from the adjacent property, but the interconnecting wall will be blocked on the sale of the property and an appropriate access made to the upper floors.

Quillan itself is situated in a mountain amphitheatre in the foothills of the Pyrenees around 45 minutes' drive from Carcassonne (Canal de Midi; UNESCO heritage site; international airport), one hour from Perpignan (TGV station for London, Paris, Barcelona and Madrid; international airport) and 1hr:30mn from Toulouse (4th city of France; cultural and university centre; international airport). Carcassonne, Perpignan and Toulouse are all easily reachable by public transport from Quillan. The nearest Pyrenean ski station is just 35 km/22 miles away and other sporting facilities (hill walking, white water rafting, canoeing etc) are right on the doorstep. Quillan also benefits from the microclimate of the upper Aude Valley, having the clear blue skies of the Mediterranean but being shielded from the debilitating Tramontane winds by the Corbière mountains.

The current owner has drawn up some approximate sketch plans showing how the accommodation might be arranged and the room descriptions below assume this plan will be implemented. However, other possibilities exist, including converting the ground floor to a self-contained 2 roomed apartment, as the property has 2 ground floor entrances.

As planned, the accommodation would provide:

Ground floor:
- Front entrance door to kitchen/dining room, with staircase access to upper floors.
- Living room with separate external access.

1st floor:
- 2 double bedrooms.
- WC/wash hand basin.

2nd floor:
- Double bedroom.
- Room for conversion into bathroom with separate WC.

This is a substantial corner property which would make ideal holiday accommodation, for own use or rental purposes, in this popular, sunny and touristic area of the South of France. If this is the sort of project you are looking for then we really do recommend an early inspection visit is properties such as this rarely come on the market.
