This house has to be seen to be believed. Beautifully proportioned with light and airy rooms, it sits on a hillside overlooking a dramatic valley in the Montagne Noire. Enjoy breakfast on the broad stone terrace as you admire the view and consider a dip in the pool. The kitchen and bathrooms are a joy, spacious and of great quality. The woodland garden includes specimens planted when the house was built in the 19th century, and has been lovingly restored and tended to produce a magical place for strolling, sitting, playing hide-and-seek... If you feel like a bit of town life, Carcassonne and Mazamet are each only a 25-minute drive away.

Solid, stone-built house dating from the 1850s and cleverly constructed in the perfect spot to make best use of the spring water and microclimate. The views down towards Carcassonne are really breathtaking.
The current owners are entirely self-sufficient in firewood, and the crystal-clear, sweet spring water which feeds the house is supplied and regularly tested by the local water authority, although it needs no treatment. It would be very easy to imagine a luxury self-sufficient lifestyle here, with established plots and greenhouse for growing fruit and vegetables, your own forest for a wood supply, fresh clean water from the hillside to feed the garden and pool, and the potential for electricity generation using solar, wind or a combination.
If you are looking for something less taxing, then focus on the fact that this house is perfectly presented with nothing left to be done. The pool is a true delight, with whirlpool area and contraflow function. A little apéritif on the poolside as you enjoy the sun, the view and a refreshing dip before dinner?

Ground floor: enter the spacious hallway for access to the living room and office with shower room on the right, and cosy dining room with high quality Clearview wood-burning stove, and luxurious Schmidt kitchen on the left. The kitchen includes a brick-built pizza oven and offers access to a small side terrace.

Curving staircase leads up to the 1st floor where the light-filled and airy hall opens to two large double bedrooms, a vestibule leading to one smaller double and a storage room/dressing room. From the hall also to an enormous bathroom with genuine Jacuzzi tub and generously-sized shower. From the stair landing, a solid wooden door leads through to the long, tiled garage with room for two cars, also housing the modern gas boiler and a sink.

The stairs continue up to the second floor where the airy hall with solid wood floorboards leads to two large double bedrooms, each with wash basin. The third room is currently arranged as a spacious office with a wood-burning stove and slim spiral staircase to a loft room. The fourth door from the hall takes us to a vestibule leading to a store room and spacious shower room with WC, shower, urinal and wash basin.

The loft is a useful space, fully boarded and currently used for storage. It has a window in the gable under the roof and plenty of head height. One could imagine, with a little work, a library, playroom, additional storage space, office or even further bedroom.

Outside, the front door leads to a very generously sized stone terrace (the stones came from the original kitchen floor) which makes best use of the sun and the views. The land slopes down the hillside in terraces offering a lawned area, a vegetable garden, and the beautiful swimming pool area. To the east of the house is a delightful fish pond and a stone building currently housing a wine cellar, tool storage area and workshop above. Beyond, we enter the extensive woodland garden with specimens dating back almost 200 years. A Giant Redwood, Cedars and many other species are interplanted with delightful herbaceous specimens giving interest year round and making a stroll through these gardens genuinely delightful.

Paths lead up and down the hillside, enabling access to a further vegetable garden with greenhouse and, beyond, a stone-built cottage. This house is currently uninhabitable but could be restored to provide a further dwelling.

How much land is available with this house? Whilst the package for sale includes the house and several parcels of land around it, including the cottage, the vendors are open to propositions and there is much more land available to interested buyers.
Please contact me for more information about the house and/or the land.
