Sublime contemporary conversion of an old sawmill offering approximately 385m² of habitable space comprising 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, with swimming pool, garage, studio and workshop, set in a private plot of around 1875m² situated in the centre of a lively village close to Carcassonne.
This open, luminous conversion has been done to very high standards, preserving its industrial antecedents, with exposed steelwork and wooden beams throughout. The industrial entrance to the property masks a hidden gem within. A private parking area to the front leads to the garage, with access to a studio, a workshop and a sports room. From the sports room, one steps into a hall which opens onto a massive open plan living room, with 3 sets of French doors opening onto the garden. A semi open kitchen and utility room is off the living room, as is the first bedroom with en-suite semi open bathroom and French doors onto the garden. From the living room, a steel staircase leads to the upper floor, where there is spacious hall which opens onto 2 bedrooms (with en-suite bathrooms) and an open office overlooking the living room. There are 2 further lounges and a bedroom off the office area.
Outside, an enormous terrace (120m²) from the living room and ground floor bedroom leads down to the garden and a hexagonal swimming pool entoured by a wooden deck. The beautiful south facing garden has mature planting throughout, with various spots for alfresco dining, and for relaxing and taking in the views. There is also access from the back of the property via a gate into the garden.
This stunning property is in excellent condition throughout, ready to move into immediate. Despite being in the centre of the village, it is an oasis of calm, completely hidden from view, offering a sense of total privacy and seclusion.
