This 10-bedroom maison de maître and artists and writers retreat is situated in a tiny village perché of La Montagne Noire, just 22 kms north of Carcassonne.
The house is comprised of two separate living situations.
A two-story 3-bedroom with 1 full bathroom (Italian shower and large bathtub with a view) and 1 private Wc, a spacious sitting room with fireplace and very large eat-in kitchen outfitted with professional equipment, and an adjacent Wc; 3 fireplaces, ancient and wide chestnut floorboards, high ceilings, French-door windows, original fixtures and an uninterrupted, panoramic view of the valley and mountains from every room.
Through a door is the second side of the property: a three-story 7-bedroom comprising an eat-in kitchen, and dining room with art deco Spanish cement tiles, very large library, a salon, 3 bedrooms with ensuite full bathrooms, 2 with ensuite showers, and two that use a shared full bathroom in the hallway. 2 additional WCs. Includes 9 fireplaces (six in marble), high wooden French ceilings, antique terra cotta tiles or wood floors, original fixtures. Garage, storage space (including closets), pantry and laundry room.
Outside there's a very large stone terrace with garden and breathtaking views of the river valley and mountains. The front of the house is in the center of the village, and the back of the house is valley-facing atop a ravine. House dates from late medieval era to the 17th century, and features artisanal stairs, moldings and woodwork.
Renovations completed 10 years ago, including an insulated, slate roof. Potential for 2 additional apartments. Sold with the potential to continue the existing business, an internationally renowned retreat center (La Muse) since 2001, with very generous revenues, and great potential to grow.
