This gorgeous property, formerly a wine warehouse, recently renovated is situated at the edge of the Canal du Midi, facing the port of Le Somail. The home offers a huge volume of 289sq.m living space on two storeys. The ground floor encompasses a large living room with fully equipped, open plan kitchen, generous dining space opening onto the terrace through two French windows, and a large lounge all arranged around a central enclosed log-burning fireplace; also, a master bedroom with ensuite bathroom and WC, and from the hallway, a separate WC, study and utility room. Stairs to the first floor lead to a large mezzanine with seating area, two large bedrooms, a bathroom and WC. Accessible directly from the hallway through French windows is a walled courtyard garden with pergola and workshop. The two-and-a-half acre Mediterranean garden has two separate entrance gates and planning permission for a 3-bedroom guest house of 100sq.m living space, leaving plenty of room for a large swimming pool. This is a desirable location for further development and excellent resale value.
Before becoming a tourist spot, Le Somail was an important port for trade and travellers during the 17th to 19th centuries. The Canal du Midi and Le Somail are now UNESCO Heritage Sites. The hamlet, population 600, is served by shops and services within 1.5km in St. Marcel d’Aude. It is surrounded by vineyards, olives and soft fruits with views of the Pyrenees and Black Mountains. This area enjoys the cleanest air in France and 300+ days of sunshine a year. It is a 20-minute drive to the historic Roman town of Narbonne, 25 minutes to miles of fabulous beaches and an hour and a quarter to Spain. Local transport links include airports at Beziers (30minutes away), and Carcassonne (60 minutes). A fast train service operates from Narbonne to Montpellier 25 min., Paris, Barcelona, London, Brussels and Amsterdam.
