Property SummaryThis well-proportioned, grand country house was originally a large wine domaine and now offers an exceptional home with nearly 400m2 of living space, comprising a large family kitchen, living room, dining room, library/study, eight bedrooms and four bathrooms. Adjoining the house is a large workshop and a garage. Across the gravel driveway there is an unused, two-storey tower which overlooks the enclosed swimming pool and terrace. There are numerous other out-buildings, ideal for storage or further development.
The house has been tastefully renovated over the years and still retains many of its original features. There is gas central heating and windows are double glazed (some secondary). A wood burning stove provides additional heating in the kitchen and there is an insert fire between the living room and library. The house has a septic tank which conforms to current regulations.
Mature parkland gardens of over 2.5 acres surround this attractive property and provide a quiet, peaceful retreat. The property is in a small hamlet near to the pretty village of Loupia and only 10 minutes' drive from lively Limoux.
