Thoughtfully renovated, this lovely home was apparently built as early as the 1600s with a visible date stamp of 1768. The property is south facing and looks out to the countryside and mountains. Modernised whilst retaining many period features, it now offers a comfortable double-glazed house with beautiful views over the surrounding countryside and Pyrenees in a quiet hamlet on the outskirts of a rural village. Mountain views can usually be seen from the majority of the house.
The main dwelling comprises: entrance hall with staircase and original colombage (half-timbered) wall; double aspect living room with original cupboard and stone sink, fireplace and wood burner; double aspect, fitted kitchen with fireplace and wood burner; utility room; WC with sink and heated towel rail; office area; boiler room; dining room with French doors to garden; landing and corridor with wooden floor boards, colombage wall ; double aspect bedroom with adjoining bathroom (shower, sink, toilet); bedroom 2 with fireplace; triple aspect bedroom 3 with dressing area and door to private terrace/balcony; bathroom with freestanding bath, walk in shower, toilet, sink, heated towel rail. A new roof was put on the whole property in 2006 and it has electric heating, independently programmable radiators and underfloor heating in main bathroom. The septic tank conforms to current regulations. The garage is to the west of the property and a covered terrace in the garden is the perfect area for entertaining, looking out to the pond, countryside and mountains. There is also an independent barn with hangar attached to the east of the house, large enough to park a camping car.
