A beautifully presented character town house in the heart of a charismatic village and within walking distance of shops, services and social life. This three bedroom house has the advantage of a covered roof terrace with beautiful views. It with would be ideal as spacious family home, an impressive "lock up and leave" or a charming and characterful rental investment. It is well situated in the beautiful Medieval village of La Bastide de Serou and is convenient for a wide range of activities, neighbouring villages and places of historic interest to visit. The village is on the edge of the stunning Ariege department in the Pyrenees.
Recently converted from two adjoining 19th Century houses into a large and characterful home, the house boasts new oak and tile flooring throughout and is tastefully furnished with quality fixtures and fittings. Its stonework, and original columbage is of particular note as it has been meticulously restored and has recently been featured in local publicity material. The exterior and interior have been been sensitively maintained and the property benefits from modern heating, plumbing, and wiring. There is a wonderful feeling of tradition combined with modern luxuries such as double glazing, insulation, radiators and a wood burning stove.
There are two entrance doors both leading into the large kitchen/ breakfast room on the ground floor. A utility room with WC is also located here. The breakfast room leads into a spacious living room full of charming original features. With radiators and a wood burning stove it functions as a delightful family and dining area.
The first floor comprises a light, airy sitting room which could easily convert to a fourth bedroom. A large office/ library area leads into the master bedroom. The ensuite bathroom has a roll top bath and a modern double shower. Open stairs lead to the second floor, which contains two large double/triple bedrooms, one with a toilet and the other with a shower cubicle. Both rooms open onto a fabulous terrace with magnificent views of the village and the Pyrenees mountains.
This is a very beautiful property with many original features in a wonderful historic village. There is no garden and this would make for a practical, maintenance-free, second/holiday home! On the other hand, if you want to grow your own fruit and vegetables, the village has allotments which are available to residents. A true turn key property!
