This is a 200 year old property on the edge of a lively wine village south of Carcassonne in the Languedoc. Although just a hundred metres from the village church and main street, the property is surrounded by high hedges, shrubs and trees giving the occupants a feeling of seclusion and serenity. As well as the main house there is a spacious 2-bedroomed gite, a garage/workshop, a heated pool and those wonderful rosebushes. An adjacent plot of building land is available to buyers who have more ambitious projects.
The main house is a solid stone-built building with big, square rooms and a pleasant farmhouse feel to it. There are four double bedrooms, a dining-room, a lounge and a splendid kitchen; bright, spacious and beautifully fitted. Heating is by an extraordinary wood-fired boiler which is nourished with easily-found 50 cm logs. Domestic hot water is supplied by solar heating panels on the roof. Finally, there’s an attic which has been insulated and is used as a study… but could be used as a kid’s bedroom or dormitory.
The gite is set away from the main house in its own space with private terrace, garden and entrance. It has been totally renovated and boasts ultra-clean lines in both the sophisticated kitchen and lounge area. There are two bathrooms and two double bedrooms.
The garage/workshop space is below the gite and is accessed directly from the courtyard in front of the main house. This means that the gite could be extended downwards into this space thus making a 4 bedroomed house … or one could create a second two-bedroomed gite.
And the garden! As well as the superb roses there is an abundance of Mediterranean shrubbery in which hide a number of cosy patios and terraces. At the centre is the salt-water pool with its telescopic cover (safety and heat retention) and heating system, pool house and extensive flagged surrounds.
This is a true ‘lifestyle change’ property. For the price of a two-bedroomed flat in Brussels or London buyers are getting a comfortable, well-equipped and handsome home in the south of France – complete with gardens and heated pool – as well as an in-built income-generating gite. One will never become rich with the gite but its income covers all running costs. The Razès wine region between Carcassonne and the Pyrenees with its hilltop villages and spectacular views has often been compared to Tuscany: property, however, is a third of the price. A ‘must-visit’ property which will not be on the market for long.
