A stylish village home, Aude, Occitanie
This beautiful 4 bedroom property with multiple living spaces is a must-see property! Every corner of the unusual space has been cleverly thought out and conceived using top quality materials giving it a timeless, classic feel. It retains both old world charm and modern sensibilities. The ground floor is a sweeping open-planned kitchen, living and dining space which opens out onto a very easy to manage tiled and decked outside area complete with outside dining and barbecuing space as well as a plunge pool - perfect for the Mediterranean climate this village enjoys. Also on the ground floor is a large bedroom with an ensuite bathroom specifically designed to be easily accessible which also opens out onto the outside terraced/decked garden. Go up a floor and you will discover another 2 bedrooms which are both light and airy - great care has been taken to keep features such as curved limestone walls and alcoves in the rooms. There is a third space which could be a large bedroom but is currently a much enjoyed cinema room with reversible air-conditioning, skylight and secret library space that is used as a study. This floor has a beautifully tiled bathroom. On the floor above you will discover a 4th bedroom with a built-in storage unit, an ensuite bathroom and a door leading out onto a stunning Moorish roof terrace that looks out over the rooftops and church spire of the village. Imagine sitting out there under a canopy of stars on a warm night before retiring to bed. As an investment, this property would suit anyone looking for a high standard of living or anyone who wants to make an income as it naturally lends itself to a high-end holiday home in a very desirable location. The village is only 30 minutes away from the nearest international airport. It is just 20 minutes away from the outskirts of Carcassonne and less than an hour to the Mediterranean. The village itself has a pharmacy, a grocery, post office, butcher, restaurant and bar as well as a market every Tuesday. If you want to go swimming then you will find nearby multiple lakes and rivers as well as Mediterranean beaches an hour away. This area is both still unspoilt yet near to all the amenities and attractions you would want.
