Luxury, 4 bed home with breath-taking panoramic views, swimming pool and over 100,000m2 of land
A recently renovated, bright and spacious country home. Set in a natural tranquil setting of over 10 hectares offering wonderful views of the Black Mountains and Pyrenees. The original house was built circa 1850 and has been extensively modernised, creating a light and airy home.
Ground Floor: A double entrance with a wood burning stove leads to a bespoke kitchen (with Rangemaster) beautifully crafted with handmade units with oak worktops. 2 sets of bi-fold doors lead you onto extensive terracing which wrap around the house. Off the kitchen is a good-sized utility room for extra storage and laundry. The large sitting/dining room has 6 sets of French doors in addition to windows offering marvellous views, plus wood burner. In addition there are 2 double bedrooms, a shower room, and a large room currently used for storage.
First Floor: Library/office, two large double bedrooms, a bathroom and a very large master suite with bathroom and large dressing room. From the master bedroom, there is a terrace overlooking the pool and extensive views.
All the doors, the kitchen, staircase and feature pieces in the house have been designed and built by a local artisan. Solid oak flooring throughout on the upper level, the ground floor is a combination of the oak and slate. Double glazed. Electric wall-heaters through-out.
The enclosed garden of approximately 2 acres, has been designed to give many options for lounging and dining: 2 pergolas for alfresco dining, an outdoor lounge, sun terraces and decking, a heated 10m x 5m outdoor salt water swimming pool (with electric cover), 240m2 of terracing around the pool. Shade, sun or a breeze, whatever you want, it is here. Ample car parking, a car port, a garage and a large shed for storage. The remainder of the circa 23 acres is farmed ‘organically’ by a local farmer on a short lease. The land could be used for horses or donkeys.
Location: Just on the outskirts of a small village, in the heart of the beautiful Razes region of the Aude, this house is located in an area known as the "golden triangle". Just 8 minutes a bakery, restaurant, post office, shop, butcher and school, 20 minutes from Mirepoix and Limoux, 30 minutes from Carcassonne and 1 hour from Toulouse, the Mediterranean Sea and the ski slopes.
