Property summary:
A magnificent Wine Maker's 18th Century private country home. A rare and unique find!

For sale direct by owner:
Situated in a village near all services (1Km). Originally built in 1727, this house remained in the same family until the present owners purchased it in early 2008, who then set about entirely renovating and restoring this lovely home.

The property is large, open and bright. It can be used as one big house or as separate properties. An additional 2nd & 3rd house can be renovated to provide extra accommodation. The attic space of approx 100M2 is already divided into 4 main areas.

The property has two large generous sun bathing terraces and a balcony that runs the length of the south facing side of the house. The walled-in garden is completely private with an above ground pool.

The ground floor level accommodation includes a large kitchen/dining area with in-built kitchen units and an island. There is a solid-fuel stove in the dining part of this room. The present table seats 8-10 people. There are 2 reception rooms, an office, a pantry, a large guest bedroom with en-suite bathroom, guest WC and even a "telephone" room. This house was the first in the village to have a telephone and villagers would come to the house to use this room to telephone or receive calls when needed.

All rooms have been completely renovated while keeping the character of the house intact. The wonderful character of the ground floor is continued upstairs with 5 bedrooms and 2 shower rooms. An attic floor is waiting for you to make the finishing touches to convert from an attic to several attic bedrooms or artist workshops!

The 2 other houses at each end of the main house could also be converted to provide further accommodation. Each has enough space to easily create separate 3/4 bedroom accommodations if required.

Outside there are sun drenched terraces and ample parking for several cars as well as garages and/or workshops. The house and the pool face South. The automatic watering system for plants is connected to the large capacity rain water tanks, but can also be connected to the mains water.

There are many areas of woodland nearby, where you can go walking and sit and enjoy the countryside and the views of the Pyrenees and watch the vultures & birds of prey circling above. There are many different types of fruit/nut trees and wild flowers around. You can learn how to forage in the woods in the surrounding areas with guided walks - many of which are free!

The current owners grow their own organic vegetables including; potatoes, tomatoes, salads, fennel, celery, broccoli, brussels sprouts, carrots, pumpkin, squash, chillies, onions, peas, cabbage, cauliflower, herbs, apricots, figs, cherries and much more in the vegetable garden that has its own well!

Over forty restaurants are within a 15 minute radius. Carcassonne airport is 40 minutes away and Toulouse airport is 90 minutes away. Nearby schools are at 5 minutes and 15 minutes with school transport available. Over 30 clubs & associations are found within 15 -20 minutes. Restaurants & bars, supermarkets, butchers, bakers, vegetable store, hairdressers & salons and a medical center are only 5 minutes (10 minute walk). Also located at 5 and 15 minutes are excellent organic supermarkets.

Sit and watch the world go by while enjoying a coffee at the local Sunday morning market in Esperaza - only 5 minutes away! Markets are also available at Limoux (Friday morning), at Quillan (Saturday morning), at Couiza (Tuesday morning) and at Carcassonne (Saturday morning).
