This huge town-house is for those who love refinement and the cachet of an historic house right in the centre of Salies du Salat, a thermal town, with casino, 70km south-west of Toulouse. The garden opens on to the main (but quiet) avenue where the market is held every Monday.

The house is a 4 story stone-built house, dating from about 1750, probably before. Originally the town house of a rich local merchant and banking family. Has little changed  ( no "restructuring" done), being comprised of a main house, with a small house to the side used as  maid's quarters, provisions storage, kitchen, with a separate spiral staircase enabling the maids to serve the main floors.  A sun-room was added to the garden terrace in the 19th century. There  are some cellars, including a small wine cellar still wth its iron bottle frames ( and a collecition of old (empty!) bottles.

The ground floor, which benefits from a sun-room, was once used for commercial purposes ( and could be rented again as such), or made into a garden apartment. The first, second and third floors were previously rented by the former proprietor.

A new owner could either turn the whole house into a family house, or  rent the floors. The current proprietor, who lives on one of the floors ( the house is not rented to any one else), could, if the new owner desired, continue to rent one floor  at a rate to be agreed., on a short-let or long-let basis.

The fflors are joined by a central staircase and landing. The first second and third flloor apartments comprise lving room, kitchen, three bedrooms and bathroom. and two toilets; The first floor has a small terrace off the kitchen, and the second floor has a more substantial terrace. On the top floor, an external terrace has been coverd over, but could be reopened. The ground floor has no bathroom.

The house has a lot of character: Most floors are oak . and In each room, including kitchens and bathrooms  there is a marble fireplace.

The main twentieth-century defect of the house is the electrical wiring, which needs tro be replaced for the house to be rented. long-term to third-parties.

For  buyers who might like to share in the purchase of a house having a separate floor per family, for a chambre d'hôtes, or to restructure as a rental proposition, this is a great opportunity.

Note the house is not currently rented. It is occupied by the proprietor.
