Located in a popular pretty village just a short drive from the bustling market town of Lavelanet, this endearing 3 bedroom house oozes character with exposed stone and beams. Complemented by its attractive herb garden and large south facing terrace, this is a perfect home from home - tranquil and yet close to all amenities. Foix 18 km - Mirepoix 25 Km - Ski 20 Km - Lac Montbel 25 Km

A very quirky house with a lot of potential, it has been modernized and thus can be moved into as it is. Nonetheless further improvement would create an even more pleasing home.

The boundary wall is hidden by a multitude of rosemary bushes releasing an amazing perfume into the garden. This is filled with herbs, wisteria, a grape vine, a palm, a lovely old stone wall at one end – a little piece of heaven enveloped in atmosphere.

The front door opens into a living room complete with oil burning stove and original bread oven. As with most traditional houses, there is not as much sunlight as most of us would wish for. A very simple solution would be to replace the window with French windows out to the garden. In turn this room could then become a large, light farmhouse kitchen.

From here a door leads to a very large larder / utility room (original stone sink) with a door to the garage (at the end of which is the walk in wine cellar).

Stairs from the front room lead to the first floor landing (a new ceramic wood burner here heats the whole house). Into the very spacious and light sitting room with open fire and another wood pellet stove.

Back to the landing and into the kitchen with original stone window sink (if the ground floor room were to be converted, this would make an extra bedroom or bathroom). Down the hall and into a large, bright bedroom.

A door from the hall opens to another hall from which the small bathroom (sit bath) and 2 further bedrooms are accessed.

At the end of the hall is the door to the lovely south facing, partially covered terrace with exposed columbage, a passion fruit vine clambering the wall from the garage and a view across the valley and neighbouring village roof tops.

From the sitting room, stairs lead to a large attic in which the current owner has already installed the pipework for an additional bathroom with a view to creating an en-suite bedroom.

In the heart of an almost secret valley and surrounded by nature, but nonetheless only a very short drive from very popular, bustling market towns, ski stations and the lovely pleasure lake at Montbel, the property is in an ideal location and would make a good rental property.

The area attracts many tourists at all times of the year with its cultural events, large variety of out door activities, Cathar castles, prehistoric remains (cave paintings) and natural wonders ( the subterranean rivers, caverns with amazing mineral formations) and is within easy reach of Toulouse, Carcassonne, Andorra and Spain

In a nutshell, an ideal place for your home in the South of France
