Unique opportunity to purchase two canal side barn conversions on the quayside overlooking the Canal du Midi, with a total of over 230m² of habitable space comprising 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, south facing terraces, a delightful Mediterranean garden and off street parking for two cars.
The building, which was formerly a barrel making premises, has been converted into two luxurious self-contained homes with many high quality features such as solid oak floors and hand crafted staircase with fine iron balustrades. It is situated in an enviable position on the quayside, a mere two minute walk to all amenities in this highly sought after tourist village yet is relatively private and peaceful.
One enters the main house via the original stable doors and new hand-made oak glazed doors onto the impressive open plan salon/dining room with double-height ceilings. There are three sets of double doors leading to the rear terrace and garden and a feature open fireplace. The fully fitted kitchen is entirely bespoke and hand-made in the UK, with a door leading from the kitchen to the forecourt at the front. There is also a ground floor cloakroom/WC.
A beautiful handmade wooden staircase leads to an elegant mezzanine floor currently used as an office, an additional sitting area and an occasional sleeping space if required. The mezzanine floor looks directly down on the open-plan room below.
Upstairs, there are three bedrooms one of which is en-suite plus a family bathroom.
The smaller second house is accessed by its own front door. The hallway gives onto a kitchen, WC and the living space with double doors onto its own terrace with views of the garden. As with the main house the living space is overlooked by a mezzanine level with a sofa bed so it can be used as an occasional sleeping space. On the first floor there are two bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Outside, to the front is a shared forecourt with dedicated off-street parking space sufficient for a minimum of two cars, which is a real bonus in the summer when public parking is limited.
To the rear of the property there is a massive 50m² south-facing terrace leading to the mature and drought resistant Mediterranean garden of nearly 500m² which could easily accommodate a large swimming pool.
There are fabulous views of the Canal du Midi from the rooms on the front elevation and views of the garden and countryside beyond from the rooms at the back of the houses.
In addition to being in an immaculate condition and in a sought after location, the property offers the flexibility to enjoy the units either as one large family home or as a home with separate guest house. A rare find!
