Full description:

Character house right in the heart of a village 298m² with 5 bedrooms and a large garden terrace plus a 3 bedroom cottage 95m²,both have been carefully renovated retaining original features and charm, lovely views over the countryside, good income potential with B&B and gîtes business

In the heart of a rural village, about 3 minutes from all amenities and only 15 minutes from the popular medieval town of Mirepoix in Languedoc-Roussillon, South of France, this deceptively large house offers plenty of living space in a beautiful part of the region.  The main house has been tastefully renovated and retains much of its original character, with a stone fireplace, exposed beams and stone walls throughout. Upstairs the wooden floors, exposed beams and good sized rooms make for a wonderful family home or potential for B&B.  The restoration works have brought the main house up to standard and a second house has been renovated into a 3 bedroomed cottage, ideal for extended family stays or rental income.  There is also potential for more living space with an attic conversion.

Description of the Buildings
This house offers a total of around 298 m2 of living space over three floors
Main house:
Ground Floor:  The spacious lounge 51m2 has a huge fireplace, wood-burning stove and bread oven, leads into a long galley kitchen 27m2.  A dining room 16m2 with exposed stone walls leads directly out to the covered (yet open air) conservatory 18m2 ideal for dining in the height of the summer and winter.  The semi-covered terrace 43m2 is a delightful, low maintenance outdoor space with lovely views over the surrounding countryside.
1st Floor:  Upstairs are 5 generous bedrooms all with wooden floors and high ceilings.  Three bedrooms are 15m2 each, and the fourth bedroom is 17m2.  Bedroom 5 has an en-suite shower room and a total of 18m2.  All are light and airy and in an immaculate decorative state with exposed beams.
Basement, Garage and workshop: The laundry room 9m2 also contains a shower and the boiler room 7m2 houses the oil-fired boiler.  There is a garage 51m2 and workshop 24m2 both in a good state.
Attic:  The attic is a very generous 85m2 space and could potentially be converted for further accommodation.  The current owners have already installed electrics for this space.

The old piggery has been fully modernised and converted into a lovely, self-contained 3 bedroom cottage of 95m² living space, with a separate entrance and a small enclosed garden.  The original beams have been exposed retaining all of the original charm.  There is double glazing and insulation throughout the cottage.
Ground Floor: An open-plan kitchen/diner 20m2, leads through to Bedroom 1 10m2 with an en-suite toilet and glass doors that lead to a small courtyard garden 12m2.
1st Floor: Lounge 18m2 with exposed beams and sliding doors leading onto a decked terrace 10m2 with lovely views of the countryside and a family bathroom 6m2.
2nd Floor: A handmade staircase takes you up to bedroom 2 11m2 and bedroom 3 8m2 with exposed beams and wooden floors throughout.

There is a low maintenance terrace 43m2 which is a perfect, partially shaded outdoor dining and seating space ideal for enjoying the summer.

General Condition
Both the main house and the cottage are in an immaculate decorative state and sympathetically styled.  The main house has been rewired on the ground and more recently on the first floor and has central heating throughout.  The cottage has double glazing throughout.  They are both in perfect condition and ready to move into.

This property is located in a beautiful area and offers a generous amount of living space.  Both houses are full of character, having benefitted from a quality renovation and there is room to expand further if desired.  This flexible space would be perfect for extended family visits or potential for immediate rental income with a B&B/ Gîte business.
