TWO FOR ONE

French Property News - - Location -

In­land from Nar­bonne, to­wards the an­cient city of Car­cas­sonne, is the vil­lage of Aigues-vives, in a beau­ti­ful ru­ral area in the Min­er­vois and Haut-langue­doc re­gional park. Aigues-vives has a shop, school, bak­ery, two restau­rants and a wine-tast­ing cel­lar, and there are won­der­ful mar­kets nearby at St-chinian and Olon­zac. Just 3km away on the edge of a small ham­let (whose ori­gins date back to Ro­man times), a pair of stone coun­try houses are on the mar­ket. Cur­rently with five bed­rooms and three bath­rooms, this prop­erty of­fers po­ten­tial to make it your ideal French home – it has al­ready been par­tially ren­o­vated. The main house has large liv­ing/din­ing ar­eas and a kitchen as well as an en­suite bed­room with won­der­ful views out over open coun­try­side and the River Ces­sière with its vine­yards and gar­rigue. At first-floor level there’s a bath­room and large roof space with im­pres­sive tim­bers – room for four more bed­rooms and bath­rooms. You could even cre­ate a roof ter­race to max­imise those views. The wine barn next door oc­cu­pies the same floor area as the house, and its win­dows too have won­der­ful val­ley views.
