Full Description

Sumptuous Manor house in a prominent position in the centre of this popular Minervois village close to the Canal du Midi, offering around 500m2 of habitable space, comprising 8 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 2 salons, and an intimate walled garden and pool.

This commanding property has been renovated with an artistic flair, conserving the many period features found throughout the house like the marble fireplaces in several rooms, the original tiles and wrought ironwork. Spread over 3 floors, it has a pleasing symmetry.

External stone staircases lead to the entrance door at raised ground floor level.

Ground Floor (raised): a vast hallway runs through the middle of the house, with a living room and a salon on either side, to the front of the house, and a dining room and a kitchen to the back, both of which open out onto the garden. There is also an office and a pantry on this floor.

First Floor: 4 large bedrooms, each with en-suite bath/shower rooms and a large hall running through the centre and opening onto a balcony overlooking the street.

Second Floor: currently arranged as a leisure space, with 4 rooms, a studio and a large laundry room. This space can easily be converted into 4 further bedrooms, each with their own en-suite facilities or a large self-contained apartment.

Outside, the walled garden of around 300m2 comprises a 7x3.5m pool, mature planting and shaded seating and dining areas.

The grandeur, size and location of this residence would make it perfect for a high end bed & breakfast or a unique boutique hotel.

The department of Aude is in the Languedoc-Roussillon region located in the south of France. It is surrounded by the Pyrenees-Orientales, Ariege, Tarn and Herault departments.

French property buyers look in this region due to its numerous and varied landscapes as well as the rich cultural heritage, Aude has become an ever popular destination recently due to the gastronomy of the region, as well as its many festivals and dramatic scenery.

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. Aude is an agricultural area dominated by wine-growing in the east and the climate is that of the Mediterranean so summers are hot and dry and winters are mild and humid.

It is the perfect location if you are looking for a quiet life and to be in harmony with your surroundings.
