Nestling in the foothills of the Pyrenees, located in the heart of Cathar country, this interesting house is situated in a very quiet position in the village of Feilluns, with little passing traffic. It is very much a typical French house, sympathetically restored with a modern twist. There is a parking space next to the garden, in front of the house. The garden has been gravelled over for ease of maintenance, and there is also a good sized garden shed.
The double fronted house is a larger than the average 2 bedroomed home. The front door leads in to an open entrance with a ground floor toilet opposite. To the left is a good sized living room with 2 windows looking to the front and side of the property. There is a wood burner in the far right corner which easily heats the lower part of the house on Winter evenings. On the right side there is a generously proportioned breakfasting kitchen. The kitchen area is of a good size, with a range of base units and drawers. The main wall is original stonework pointed with a lime mortar. There is a gas cooker and oven, fridge freezer and dish washer plus a double sink.
Upstairs there is a bathroom with shower over bath, wc and wash basin. From the top of the landing there are 2 bedrooms. The main room is very large with a vaulted ceiling showing off the beautiful wooden beams. The second bedroom is slightly smaller but still a very good size. Both bedrooms have windows overlooking the garden.
The house has been re-wired, re-plumbed and all of the fixtures and fittings have been completely up-dated. Upstairs is heated by electric radiators but due to the heat from the downstairs wood burners they are very rarely used. There is telephone and wi-fi connection, along with cable Tv - French, bien sur.
This warm and welcoming home is a very solid, stone built house with a little garden attached, which is quite rare for a village house, offering an 'outside room' in the, almost, always sunny weather. A cyclist's & hill walker's dream you are surrounded by stunning, enchanting routes and spectacular scenery abounds... Ideal for those looking to get away from it all in the beautiful countryside of 'la Belle France'. The villages of Caudies de Fenouilledes and Saint Paul de Fenouillet are about 20 minutes drive from the house, where you will find the usual village commerce. Locally there are natural swimming areas, and there is large open air pool in a nearby village during the months of July and August.
If it's culture you seek, then Perpignan & Carcassonne are within easy driving distance, and the incredible city of Barcelona is a leisurely 3 & half hours away (all with airports offering connecting flights throughout the Uk).
