145 m2
167 m2
Impressive historical stone village house with cellars, a small “jardinet” and a superb rooftop terrace with beautiful views over the vineyards and a hilly Mediterranean landscape. The house is located on the edge and near the heart of small picturesque where time seems....
.... to have stood still. Assignan is located at the gateway to the beautiful "Parc Naturel Régional du Haut-Languedoc" and the “Pays Minervois”. . Despite the quietness and authentic character of Assignan, a recent renaissance has seen a well-known wine estate open an exclusive hotel and three restaurants. For wine lovers there are four smaller domains in the vicinity. Nearby are several small towns such as St Chinian, offering a wide range of shops, cafes, restaurants and other amenities. The towns of Béziers, Carcassonne and Montpellier (each with their own High Speed train station and international airport), are about a 35- to 70-minutes’ drive away by car, and the Mediterranean beaches about 40 minutes’ drive away. From the house, you can access numerous hiking and cycling routes. The story goes that this property finds its origins in the 14th century . The house is remarkable by its elegant simplicity as well as by its various charming original details such as the thick natural stone walls, the beamed ceilings, a traditional [Languedoc] fireplace, and of course its tower. Therefore it’s not so strange that the owners have enjoyed this property for almost 40 years now as a holiday home. To stay here in a permanent way, you’d be advised to keep a refurbishing budget to update or modernise the house. Of course, the asking price takes this fact into account. The property offers a built area of over 235 m² including the habitable space of about 145 m². In its actual shape, the property has large rooms such as the entrance, the kitchen diner living area with the open fireplace, an atelier with mezzanine, 3 bedrooms and a bathroom. There is also potential for further development of the habitable space: such as in the cellars at street level, where it would be relatively easy to create a workshop, guestroom or a painters studio. In the charming “jardinet” with its pergola covered by an old muscat vine, one can enjoy the Mediterranean climate and village life in peace. The rooftop terrace offers privacy and views (270°C ) to the peaks of the Pyrenees mountains. Free parking places are available in the vicinity of the house. This charming, rustic house would work well as a primary or secondary residence in Mediterranean France and offers possibilities for further development on a unique and privileged location. A visit to this "coup de coeur" is definitely worthwhile! Viewings by appointment. Exclusive offer. Bien Non soumis au DPE3
