This 14th-century presbytery is situated at the top of a formerly fortified village in the Lauragais. It has been renovated to the highest possible specification and has the most amazing views from every window.
It has a spacious entrance hall, two reception rooms,study, fitted kitchen, four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a huge lower ground level, as yet undeveloped.
The main entrance opens to double glass doors leading to the impressive entrance hall.
To the right, a corridor leads to the kitchen and dining area. Off this corridor is a beautiful family bath and shower room and separate toilet.
The kitchen has been fully fitted with high quality units and has a second preparation kitchen behind it.
From the dining area, an archway leads to a spacious sitting room with a study/office to the side of it.
All these rooms benefit from magnificent views over miles and miles of countryside.
Also on this floor there are three bedrooms, one with an ensuite shower room, and access to the courtyard and garden.
On the first floor, there is a hughe attic room, the conversion of which the owners are in the process of finishing.
The basement of the building opens out onto a village square and has car access through double doors as well as access to the lower level of the garden.
Also on this level is a large, independent room, in its original state, where you can make out a series of religious paintings on the walls, dating from the 19th century.
The outside space is beautiful too, surrounded by the stonework of the house and the church.
At the level of the entrance hall, there is a courtyard for outdoor eating as well as a small garden at the side of the church.
Stone steps lead down to the main level area of garden which is completely private and walled - but still with lovely views.
An arched door from the garden leads into the basement.
There is double glazing and electric central heating throughout.
This is an absolute gem for all lovers of Cathar history but needs to be seen to be properly appreciated.
