This is a bright and airy, detached property on the outskirts of the market town of Quillan.There are no immediate neighbours and the open views towards the foothills of the Pyrennees are spectacular.
Athough the house is in a lovely rural position, just 5 minutes drive takes you into the town centre and the nearest supermarket is only about 1km away.
Situated only 200metres from the picturesque leisure lakes (swimming and fishing) this versatile house makes a lovely family home or very spacious holiday home. Both house and land are easily maintained and can be locked up and left with no worries. For those looking to make an income, there is scope for B&B and the land is perfect for camping.
The property would also be ideal for anyone wishing to be self-sufficient but not too isolated.
The house stands on 4357 sq m of flat land which is totally enclosed with large gates for vehicular access. A large part of the land is grass with established fruit trees and there is a further flower garden. There is a covered, south facing veranda and a large base already in place for an above-ground pool. To the rear of the property there is a good sized yard, ideal for laundry and storage or keeping animals (or making a summer kitchen!). At the bottom of the land there is a further enclosed garden with access to the very private river bank. The river has never dried up (water is pumped from here for watering) nor has it ever flooded. Although the land is a good size, the property makes an ideal 'lock up and leave' as the garden is never overgrown due to the warm and sunny climate.
The house was renovated in 2015. A new Godin woodburning stove was fitted and there is oil fired central heating, double glazing and reversible air conditioning in the property.
