Full Description

Delightful and characterful village house, formerly the village cafe with rooms to let above, offering more than 350m2 of habitable space over 4 floors, with 6 bedrooms and 3 terraces (2 with views of the Canal du Midi), located in a central position in the village, 2 minutes from the banks of the Canal.

With huge, light spaces/rooms and furnished in a distinct, minimalist style, the property retains much of the character and style of the original building. To the front is a covered terrace that opens onto an enormous living room with a vintage log burning stove and ornate glazed doors that open out onto a terrace of around 50m2 with stunning views of the Canal and countryside beyond (including for part of the year the snow-capped Pyrenees).

To the side of this vast room is the kitchen and a dining room, as well as a small hall with a staircase to the upper floors. From the kitchen, there are stairs going down to a lower level, which is at street level at the back of the property, where there is a large bedroom with a new en-suite bathroom and independent access onto the street. This level could easily be transformed into an independent self-contained unit with the addition of a kitchenette.

The main staircase leads to a mezzanine level with a shower room and dressing room, then the first floor, which has another shower room and 3 bedrooms, the largest of which has a loggia with far reaching views. There is a storage room on another mezzanine floor. The top floor has 2 further very large bedrooms.

There is plenty of space in this fascinating house to create a principal residence with separate lettable rooms or units, as well as a part that could generate an income such as a cafe, an art gallery or library, subject to necessary permissions. A unique piece of real estate!
