This attractive and well-proportioned property is in very good condition throughout, retaining many of original features such as the fabulous ornate ceilings, floor tiles, marble fireplaces and staircase.

Ground Floor: a wide, elegant through hallway opens onto the principal living room (with doors onto the garden) and a formal dining room, to the front.

The attached double storey barn is also accessible on ground floor from the garden. The vast upper level has already been insulated, double glazed and has a 'Velux' window, so is ready to be finished to create further habitable space.

Carcassonne is the cultural heart of the Aude department, and all through the region you will find lovely properties either to live in or to use as holiday homes.
