Situated only 20 minutes from the centre of Carcassonne, the property lies to the South West of the city. It nestles into the hillside in 12.5 hectares of south facing land looking towards the Pyrenees and has an unparalleled view of the mountain range. The view is sensational. Two houses, one huge pool 15.25m x 6m, a tennis court, a large truffle orchard and much more.
Although within 20 minutes of Carcassonne and the airport, the property is ideally placed for ease of access. With 6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 4 dining areas, 3 kitchens, a tennis court and one of the largest pools in the region.
There are several hectares of lawns around the house with long established Mediterranean gardens to the North and South of both houses. Beyond, stretch woods and a two hectare orchard of truffle oaks which are fenced in to provide protection from boar and should be due to produce their first truffles in 2020.
The main house sleeps 6 in three double bedrooms which are all en suite. There is a very large sitting room which looks out through ceiling height windows onto the Pyrenees and this open plan room leads on to the dining room with another panoramic window which opens out to the mountains. Adjoining the dining room is a substantial and fully furnished and equipped kitchen. On the other side of the sitting room is the summer kitchen with built in BBQ and bread oven. Beneath the dining room is a very substantial pool room with the latest ultraviolet and ozone filtration system for the pool. The pool is solar heated.
The gite is close to the summer kitchen and this sleeps 8 with three bedrooms and a large family bathroom and separate toilet. There is another open plan sitting room. There is a small kitchen and built in dining table and wonderful open fire in the middle of the room. There is a fifth shower room and separate toilet on the ground floor of the main house which is used by guests from the cottage.
Both houses have extensive verandas and pagodas.
There is a separate double garage.
This is quite a special property due to its view and location.
