8 bedroom country house for sale, Aude, Occitanie
This sun-drenched country 10 minutes from the medieval town of Mirepoix has a swimming pool with shallow steps, and nearly 2 acres land with stunning views. Versatile in its layout, there is a 3-bed main house, 4-bed gite & 1-bed romantic cottage.
The main house has been designed very much with its views in mind, so the master bedroom and the sitting room are on the first floor. These rooms are light-filled and spacious, and have terraces on which to relax and take in the distant Pyrenees (sometimes snow-capped). All 3 bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms and there is gas underfloor heating throughout.
The 4-bedroomed gite is a perfect holiday rental, with 2 bathrooms, a wood-burning stove to take off any winter chill, gas heating and beamed ceilings. It's all set up and ready to go. The cottage is fully self-contained and an ideal getaway for a couple. If it suited the new owners, the entire property would make a fabulous rental for a group or family holiday.
The large heated pool has easy steps for children and there is lots of space for loungers and sunshades. The lawned gardens with mature shrubs and trees are beautifully maintained and a feature of the property,
Market day in Mirepoix is on a Monday. Shopping should definitely include a coffee and croissant in one of the outdoor terraced cafes, and exploring the narrow streets lined traditional half-timbered medieval buildings. It's an easy hour's drive to Carcassonne, famous for its citadel and fortifications. A day out there should include La Cavayere Lake, a leisure complex, which is good for swimming, water sports, cycling, walking and picnics.
