The Farmhouse:
A stunning 4 bedroom 3 1/2 bathroom farmhouse has been fully renovated to the highest specification - this is a full "back-to-the-shell" restoration with new floors and under floor heating throughout with individual thermostats in every room. This property has to be viewed to appreciate the amount of high quality workmanship throughout.

The dining room leads to the family room (6.5m x 5m) with marble floor, feature stonewalls and feature windows. Doors lead to the front of the house and patio overlooking the swimming pool, and has stunning views of the land and countryside. At the rear of the kitchen there is a utility room with w.c., marble floor and a back door leading to a covered in porch.
The conservatory (9m x 3m) at the front of the house is perfect for those not so hot days and evenings, where you can relax with stunning peaceful views.
At the front of the property there is a 9x4 swimming pool with decking, shed for storage, a large patio for dining/relaxing and taking in the stunning countryside views and a second patio for relaxing/dining.
From the utility the stairs lead to the first floor with a study and storage areas. Adjoined to the utility, we have created a secure indoor/outdoor area for our own cats where they can watch the wildlife.
The farmhouse is south facing with all 4 bedrooms facing south. 2 bedrooms have fully tiled en-suites with Italian style double walk in showers, double vanity units and air conditioning. There is also a fully tiled family bathroom with spa bath at the rear of the house. All bedrooms house super king size beds.
The farmhouse is fitted with a state of the art burglar/smoke alarm and is wired for a complete home sound system throughout. Solid oak windows and doors are also fitted.
We have photographically documented the restoration of the property which is available to interested parties.
The farmhouse is set-back on over 6 acres of land and there is a terrace at the front of the house, again, with stunning views of the land, countryside and magical sunsets. It is not overlooked and provides a peaceful home for the owners and our Canine and Feline visitors.

With two ensuite bedrooms, plus a family bathroom, the farmhouse lends itself to adding B&B as a further revenue opportunity. The location is close to visitor attractions, such as The Pyrenees, Toulouse and Carcassonne; the coast is one and a half hours away. Lots of our clients holiday here and bring their pets to us so they can fully explore the area.

The Cattery:
The cattery has 21 units which include family units. All of the units are extremely large with a window shelf so the cats can watch and listen to the wildlife. There is a small kitchen and hot running water. There is a large room at the back of the inside of the cattery which currently houses a gym.

At the far end of the land there is a huge Dutch barn, which with relevant planning permission, could be removed and a house/gites built in its place, close neighbours have done this already. The barn could also be converted into Stables, either for your own use, or, to rent as additional income.
The location of the Barn is ideal for any of the above.
The cattery and kennels are separate blocks, the farmhouse being in-between for excellent access and security.
