Elegant bourgeois ‘Maison de Maitre’ dating from 1850 for sale in the centre of a busy Minervois village, offering nearly 400m2 of habitable space comprising 8 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms plus a separate and independently accessed old doctor’s surgery and waiting room, with a garden and garage on a plot of over 900m2. Has recently been reduced in price.
The property is in a well maintained and original condition, retaining many original features such as marble fireplaces, beautiful floor tiles, double wooden doors and ornate high ceilings.
On the ground floor, an impressive hallway leads to two large salons and a kitchen. A separate hallway leads to the old doctor’s surgery and to the garden.
A beautiful sweeping stone and wrought iron staircase leads to the first floor hallway with 4 bedrooms, bathroom and a small office space. On the second floor, there are 4 further bedrooms and a bathroom.
To the back of the house is a mature garden with a central stone water feature. A period ‘serre’ or greenhouse in steel and glass makes an interesting feature in the garden. There is a well that supplies the fountain and the watering system.
The property also benefits from a garage of around 90m2 with an upper floor, which is accessed from the road behind the house.
With a wealth of period features and good proportions, this property is a good example of its type, in fair original condition. With some updating and redecoration, it would make a great B&B or family home, with plenty of character and charm.
