On the Tarn/Herault border we find this superb home set in nearly 3 acres of landscaped grounds bordered by a stream. Built by an important family in the textiles trade, the former stone factory can still be seen in the woodland behind and along with other outbuildings could provide further potential. Only a short walk into town from this real gem in one of the last affordable regions of the South.

In the quiet outskirts of the town of Labastide-Rouairoux this home is built in classic french style with the accommodation on the upper floor and garaging and cellars below with room for further living space and a delightful conservatory under the terrace above.
From the driveway gated entrance we enter the house from this terrace into a vestibuled central hallway; the breakfast room (16m2) has an arch to the very modest kitchen area and this could possibly benefit from opening up. The room benefits from a fireplace with woodburner and there is a further dedicated dining room and lounge (42m2) from front to back of the house with fine parquet floors and views over the gardens below.
A study (16m2) plus a bathroom complete this level and up the fine staircase we find an unusually glazed entrance to the generous (16m2) landing leading to the 4 large bedrooms, all with the same fine parquet floors and good views, a further showeroom and seperate WC. Several of these rooms have separate dressing rooms which could accommodate en-suite facilities.
Down on ground level the array of garaging and workshops is bewildering with several summer kitchens (or former servants kitchens in bygone days), as well as further rooms for storing timber and the oil-fired central heating system. A charming expansive conservatory under the front terrace overlooks the fountain from its huge arched windows
The rear of the house has its own gated driveway and huge courtyard gardens.In front the parkland stretches away down a tree-lined avenue to a gated entrance and the fountains and hidden niches and well await discovery.
To the rear of the plot we find several stone outbuildings,(as can be seen in my 360 deg. virtual tour) one next to the stream which could feasibly provide gites and a huge former factory for the textiles industry, the water wheel still evident to see, this building is in ruin, with many fine materials ,stones etc to recuperate for elsewhere from this remnant of local history. The total plot is 12,463m2 ,approaching 3 acres with its cascading stream bordering the whole plot.This has been a superior family residence as well as a piece of history and needs restoring to its former glory once again; a real gem and a real bargain.
The house is in easy walking distance of all conveniences, shops,restaurants,banks etc. Labastide-Rouairoux has a weekly market as does the nearby town of Saint Pons de Thomieres which is the capital of the beautiful Haut Languedoc regional nature reserve and whose settlement dates back to the Stone Age as proves its museum of Prehistory. Labastide also boasts a textile museum having been the most important textile town in the region apparently because of the purity of its river water. A little further afield the vineyards of the Minervois can be reached within a half hours drive, and the Mediterranean beaches in an hour and a quarter. The property is equidistant from Carcassonne and Beziers airports at around the same amount of drive time, Toulouse and Montpellier airports being a little further (1h45mins)
