Stunning ‘maison bourgeoise’ townhouse built between the late 1700’s – early 1800’s with 5 floors including 4th floor attic with spectacular mountain views and an underground cellar. It comes complete with private courtyard, terrace and garage. An absolute must see! Read more ...
There are 2 entrances on 2 different streets with parking for 1 car at the front and 2 cars behind the garage (and one inside). The house comes with a shop currently rented out to a pharmacy.
THE GROUND FLOOR - When you enter from the front door there is a long corridor of black and white mosaic tiles, which opens out into a grand atrium which I use as a lobby - 15 M2 (not incl staircase). Off this lobby there is an oak staircase, a toilet, a room under the stairs which houses the gas and water meters and a window and door into the kitchen .
Going through into the kitchen, you find a fully fitted kitchen with pantry/storeroom which houses the washing machine, a working woodburner in the fireplace and a window and door to the private courtyard which faces south. A lot of the cabinets are vintage as are the chairs, table, Italian designer lampshade etc. Lots of original stonework, brickwork and wooden beams – 40m2.
*NOTE – Most of the fixtures and fittings in the house are vintage including bakerlite light switches and porcelain door handles. Also most rooms in the house have original cornicing, ceiling roses, Louis XIV fireplaces, architrave around the fireplaces, coats of arms, built in shelving, wooden panelling, inside shutters etc. All rooms have original oak flooring however I have recently carpeted it to give more light. Half the windows are double glazed.
THE COURTYARD - From the back door of the kitchen there are 4 old stone steps down to the private courtyard which contains flower beds, vegetables and herbs – 20m2.
There is an iron spiral staircase to the terrace, a door to the garage and down 3 more stone steps to the underground cellar
THE TERRACE – Looks out onto the road with views of neighbours houses and the mountains. With a nice stone balustrade at the back and an iron balustrade balcony over the courtyard it consists of raised flower, trees, vegetable and herb beds - 20m2.
In the beds both in the courtyard and on the terrace are flowers and different kinds of vegetables.
THE GARAGE - Inside is parking for one car, a sink, a drain,a gardening workplace and housing for the 2 bins – 20m2.
With a bit of rearrangement you could fit 2 cars in the garage but you would need to enlarge the doors and move the sink.
The garage entrance from the road at the back shows off the period stone balustrade. Note this street has since been renovated and paved.
Steps from the courtyard into the cellar underneath the kitchen which runs right the way underneath the house.
The wood is stored on the left, there is wood for making the beds on the right and underneath storage. A place for tools behind and right at the back is the door to the storeroom. The ceiling has been insulated to keep the kitchen warmer.
The cellar storeroom at the back is in the process of being made into a sealed unit for a larder.
THE FIRST FLOOR – At the top of the stairs is a landing the same size as the lobby consisting of balustrade overlooking the lobby area, a harmonium, and 3 doors, one to the house at the front and one to the house at the back and one with a Juliette balcony off the dressing 10M2 room.
Next to this and at the back of the house is the first bedroom (20m2) with en suite shower room and sink unit. The bedroom has 2 high windows and beautiful marble fireplace.
From the atrium landing going to the front corridor you find a bathroom on the left with claw foot bath, sink, original radiator, toilet and lovely large windows - 10m2.
Adjoining this is a dressing room with original priest’s closet where he would hang his robes (now used as a linen closet), vintage chairs and hairdryers - 20m2.
Next to this and at the front of the house was originally a bedroom which is currently used as a lounge. The windows overlook the square - 24m2.
SECOND FLOOR – From the atrium landing on the second floor there is a walkway from the front of the house to the back.
Starting at the back, there is a bathroom on the left with vanity area, wash basin, claw foot bath, large closet, shelving for towels etc, cupboard, rattan commode and a wonderful huge original fireplace - 12m2.
Next to this at the back of the house and above the first bedroom is the second bedroom, same size, same furnishings with views of the mountains.
From the corridor going to the front of the house there is a toilet and another bathroom 9m2.
A staircase leads to the attic floor and the third bedroom at the front of the house above the lounge. This is the largest bedroom as it can accommodate a second double bed - 26m2.
THE THIRD FLOOR – At the top of the stairs there is a bathroom directly above the toilet and bathroom below – 7m2. There is a door leading to the attic of the front house - 30m2 (very high headroom) Along a narrow walkway you will find at the back of the house a huge attic space (40m2) which could be used as a bedroom, office, workshop/art studio etc. It has magnificent views across the range of the mountains including the famous Pic du Midi.
LOCATION - Although the mountains are literally on your doorstep, the motorway is less than a 5 minute drive which takes only 1 hour to Toulouse. Tarbes is 25 mins, Pau 1hr, Biarritz 1h45 and Spain 30 mins. The train station is a 3 min drive away or a 15-20 min walk and it’s a direct line to the centre of Toulouse taking an hour.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION – The front is NE facing and the back is SW facing. The cooker is gas, the heating is electric with individual radiators in each room so you can just heat the rooms you use and a wood burning fireplace in the kitchen/diner. Bills are low and can be provided on request. The shop is currently rented out which brings in a small income.
THINGS TO DO LOCALLY – There is a swimming lake which also has a wonderful restaurant next to the beach. It is an eco-friendly lake with safe and clean swimming. It is meticulously cleaned daily and the council grow eco-friendly plants to maintain the wildlife that live there. There’s an equestrian centre next to the lake, a rugby stadium, a tennis club and a very popular golf course. Within a ten minute drive is the medieval towns of Valcabrère and Saint Bertrand de Comminges, and lots of nice restaurants and cafes. There are many caves to visit and lovely little villages on the road to Spain and just before the frontier is the spa town of Bagnères de Luchon with its healing spa resort but also more famous as one of the best ski resorts in winter and in summer a mountain bikers dream.
