This is an ideal family home, or retirement home where families are expected to visit. Situated in the valley of the Hers, with easy access to the Voie Verte footpath / cycle way, the property is less than one hour from Carcassonne airport in the 'Pays Cathare'. The airports at Toulouse and Perpignan are also within reach. There are rail stations at Toulouse, Castelnaudary and Carcassonne.
The house provides an L-shaped living area opening onto the south-facing terrace with roll-out awning and barbecue, and enjoying superb views. On the same floor are three good sized bedrooms, one with en-suite including WC, basin and shower.There is a family bathroom with WC, bath, shower, and basin, and also a separate WC with hand basin. All these benefit from under floor heating and the windows are double glazed.
A fourth bedroom is found above the integral garage, and behind the garage is a utility room with connecting door to the 'coin cuisine'.
The large garden is laid mainly to lawn. In addition to the garage there is a double carport and ample parking within the property for a caravan or motorhome. The parking area is secured by electrically operated gates with remote control and intercom. The property is separated from the road by a good hedge, and from the surrounding field by a fence.
The solar panels provide up to 2 000 euros per year, making the house almost self-sufficient in electricity, depending on usage. The 7m X 3m pool has a fully or partly openable cover, and swimming is often possible from mid-April till the end of October.
