Charming character property with commanding views, Aude, Occitanie
This architecturally pleasing 3 bedroom property is designed with large living areas over split levels. Beautifully renovated with an East facing aspect so that you can look out every morning to the Sun rising above one of the iconic Cathar castles this region is famous for.
The house is situated high on the side of a hill, in a little hamlet that overlooks picturesque fields, hills and a stunning castle below. It enjoys the shelter of the hill onto which it is built, as well as being high enough to get the sunshine throughout the day. The South west facing back garden gets the sun well into the afternoon.
You enter into a large farmhouse style kitchen, complete with Raeburn cooker that also feeds the central heating system and cross over into the utility room which opens straight out onto the garden. From there you can access the garage internally or go up a level to a large dining/living area that spans the house, then onto a second equally sizeable living space a few steps to one side. Above are two bedrooms which share a bathroom, and a further room with an ensuite bathroom with roll top bath and dressing room.
The house enjoys good insulation throughout. A new layer has recently been added in the roof and just needs a bit of finishing off.
The attached barn did have planning permission which has expired, but you could apply to get this reinstated. The house comes with a sizeable piece of land opposite and plenty of scope for continuing the permaculture project of the current owner, or another outdoor activities.
If you are looking for your dream home in the countryside, this property is a must-see.
