Classically french restored townhouse with garden, Ariège, Occitanie
Steeped amidst the history of Cathar castles, famous for its rustic countryside, its art and craft with ancestral cave paintings and modern art in both the capital town of Foix, and the medieval town of Mirepoix, the Ariège simply has it all.
This gorgeous townhouse is located in the Ariège region 15 minutes from Camon, not far from the Aude border. The house is situated in an enchanting village, within walking distance to a local bakery/grocery shop, school, bars and restaurants. It is a 10 minute drive to Lake Montbel, known for its sandy beach, water sports and fishing.
Fully renovated and revived, breathing new life into this house and offering contemporary comfort whilst retaining its former glory. All windows are new and double glazed, and a new boiler has been installed for the oil fired heating. It has been carefully redesigned inside including a new kitchen and new bathrooms. The downstairs accommodation provides a sleek kitchen with island and bar seating, a dining/music room, a sitting room, downstairs WC and a generous sized hall which could be utilised as a study for those who work from home. Upstairs, are 3 spacious bedrooms all big enough to house super-king beds. One of these bedrooms has a Jack and Jill bathroom which doubles as the family bathroom as there is also access from the hall. The master bedroom has its own fabulous ensuite bathroom with quality fittings including a cast iron clawfoot bath.
At the end of the upstairs hall is a set of double doors which lead out onto the south facing balcony which spans the width of the house. Perhaps a coffee and croissant in the morning sun?
Its garden is made for outside living, with its patio, summer kitchen and dining terrace. A large pebbled area houses several vegetable plots and an above ground pool. At the bottom of the garden a grassy lawn with a further decked seating area and garden shed completes this fabulous outside space.
With around 177m² of habitable space and a 520m² plot, this house boasts a whole lifestyle space suited to either a family or a couple. It would be perfect as a holiday home too, being within an hour's drive to Carcassonne airport and just over the hour to Toulouse.
