Historic Riverside Property and Unique Conversion Project.
The large house, with a total floor area of around 360 sqm spread over 4 floors, was originally built in 1901 for the owners of the famous Camembert du Sud fromagerie which was housed in part of the building. A watermill, sited at the back of the building, provided power for the enterprise.
The property is located in the foothills of the Pyrenees in the unspoilt Couserans region which is now part of the Ariege Natural Park. The area is a very special, little known and undiscovered part of France noted for its abundant wildlife, clean air and local traditions. It has a pace and quality of life difficult to find in today's modern world.
The local town of St Girons (20 mins away) holds a vibrant weekly market with local artisan produce, street music, cafés and bars to relax in, one of the best in South West France. Nearby is the historic town of St Lizier with its cathedral.
Toulouse airport is around 1 hour 30 minutes by car and Carcassonne is approimately 2 hours away.
The property is approached down a short driveway, through a pair of wooden gates, to a large gravel parking area.
A cobbled path leads to the wooden front doors which open into the hallway with its high ceiling.
Leading off is :
• Kitchen/Living room (5.6m x 5.2m) with an open plan fitted kitchen, built-in oven and hob, dining area and living area with a wood-burning stove and large dual aspect windows overlooking the front of the property. Tiled floor.
• Art room (5.6m x 5.2m) with large dual aspect windows overlooking the garden. Formerly used as an art studio, requiring some renovation. Stairs lead down from here to the lower floor of the 'Fromagerie Annexe'.
Continuing through the hall are 2 further large rooms :
• The first room (5.8m x 5.7m) has been divided into two rooms:
• Bedroom 1 with window overlooking the river and en-suite shower room and wooden floors.
• Room 1 with window overlooking the river currently used as a utility area with washing machine.
• The second room (6.2m x 5.8m) with two windows overlooking the river. Wooden floor. Stairs lead up to the second floor of the 'Fromagerie Annexe'.
From the end of the hall there is a curving wooden staircase leading up to the first floor :
On the first floor :
• Bedroom 2 (5.7m x 4.4m) with large dual aspect windows overlooking garden and mountains, exposed stone wall, fireplace and wooden floor.
• Bedroom 3 (4.0m x 3.2m) with a large window overlooking garden and mountains and wooden floor.
• Bedroom 4 (5.8m x 4.5m) with large dual aspect windows overlooking garden and mountains, wooden floor and under stairs cupboard.
• Shower room fully tiled with modern shower cubicle, toilet and washbasin. Wooden floor.
• There are also 2 first floor rooms, one with fireplace, either side of the stairs which have solid brick floors and lend themselves to the reinstatement of the original rooftop terraces which overlook the river.
• Small original bathroom.
• Stairs lead up to a large attic space (12m x 5m) with 3 dormer windows from which there are wonderful mountain views.
To the rear of the house are large cellar rooms with windows overlooking the river complete with old mill workings. Tiled floor.
Fromagerie Annexe: Conversion Project
A large annexe to the original fromagerie is attached to the west side of the house and has huge potential for conversion into many uses. This beautiful old building was constructed in the early 1900s to cope with increased demand for Camembert du Sud.
• There are 3 big open floors measuring 15m x 8m each.
• A particular feature of the building is the dual aspect windows of the middle floor which flood the room with light from the south and offer views and sounds of the river.
• The ground floor has its original floor tiles and also dual aspect windows. Access at the same level to cellar rooms.
The buildings are set in over 2000 m2 of lovely south facing gardens with the pretty River Bouigane running alongside.
Situated about 10mins away from the property is the picturesque village of Castillon en Couserans with all amenities including a primary school, boulangeries, small supermarket, doctors, cafés/bars, a public swimming pool and more. There are smaller villages closer to bars and small grocers and boulangerie. The boulangerie van calls in the village daily.
The area is conveniently placed for access to the multitude of walking and mountain trails, including the 'Chemin de St Jacques'. The Tour de France passes the driveway most years and there are many cycle touring routes and off-road tracks, making this a cyclist's paradise. For those who enjoy other outdoor pursuits, there is caving, climbing, horse riding, cross country skiing with a number of ski centres approx 1 hour 20 mins away.
All in all a property with enormous potential for further development. Please contact us for more photographs before visiting the property in order that you have all the information required prior to visiting.
