Elegant, fully renovated Maison de Maitre, offering approximately 530m² of habitable space with 7 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, a delightful courtyard garden, terrace, indoor swimming pool, sauna and 2 large garages, located in a prominent position in the centre of a pretty village in the Minervois.
The house has been extensively renovated to high standards to create a home with all modern comforts, without sacrificing the character and charm of the building. Throughout the house there are original features like marble fireplaces, encaustic tiles, mouldings and stone and wrought iron staircase, which sit comfortably with more modern fittings. The grand dimensions of all the principal rooms add to the sense of grandeur of the property.
On the ground floor, an impressive entrance hallway opens onto billiard room on one side and a formal dining room on the other. The billiard room in turn leads to a sumptuous living room that can also be directly accessed from the hallway. Also off the billiard room is a small office. The dining room leads to a country style freestanding kitchen with an open fireplace. Double glazed doors from the kitchen open onto a sunny terrace that overlooks the romantic courtyard garden. From this terrace one also accesses a large summer room which has kitchen facilities, including a BBQ. Finally on this floor, a light filled hallway off the main entrance hallway connects the house to the garage. There is also a bathroom at the end of this hallway.
A classic, central staircase from the entrance hall leads to the upper floors. On the first floor, a grand hallway leads to a master bedroom with ensuite bathroom and a sitting room. There are two further bedrooms on this floor, one with an ensuite shower room. There is also a fantastic family bathroom with built -in sauna room.
The second floor houses 3 further bedrooms (one with en-suite bathroom) and a family bathroom. In the eaves space there is an old bedroom which is currently used as a store room and a most amazing children’s theatre room complete with proscenium arch and stage!
The walled internal courtyard garden which is on lower ground floor level, is gravelled for easy maintenance, with a fountain as its central feature. Doors from the courtyard open onto the indoor swimming pool with counter current and jacuzzi. The two garages can house two cars and are a definite advantage, given the central location of the property
This remarkable property would make an excellent family home but would work equally well as a B & B establishment or even a boutique hotel. A ‘must see’!
