Unique Dwellings For Sale presents this 18th Century French Townhouse in the heart of the Seronias.
Double fronted this 18th Century French Townhouse is made of stone. With over 400 m2 the property has a garden and is situated in a charming street in the historic village of La Bastide de Serou. Located in the picturesque Pyrenees Seronais, nearby there’s golf, a lake and “la voie verte”. An hour from Toulouse and midway between Foix and St Girons / Saint Lizier. With a mountain background activities in the area include walking, cycling, skiing, golfing, hunting, riding, para gliding and swimming. Also there’s a prehistoric cave to explore. The friendly village has a weekly market, local shops, and a school.
Wood fired central heating stove heats up to 25 radiators and has been recently installed. Features include stone and wooden floors throughout, wood paneling, carved wooden doors, fireplaces, high ceilings and well proportioned rooms.
On the ground floor there’s a stone paved hallway and an imposing staircase and three receptions. Including two off a large vestibule with a high ceiling and glass doors.
One of the reception rooms has views over the garden and has an anteroom currently used as a study. From the well equipped kitchen, a door and steps lead to the garden and two outside ‘cellars’.
First floor accommodation consists of a bathroom and separate toilet, two large front bedrooms, one with a dressing room and two further bedrooms overlooking the garden. One yet to be restored, but with the possibility of an en suite.
On the second floor there’s a shower room, two further large bedrooms at the front. A further room to the back with views down the valley and an anteroom, again in need of restoration. Also on this floor is a door to the attic and anterooms, potential for one or more secret rooms.
Further stairs to the main attic area and a smaller stairway to a balustrade to windows with views down the valley, currently closed up for later renovation. There is huge potential here for a grand balcony with panoramic views from one of the highest spots in the village.
Most of the renovation has already been undertaken including work to the roof, electrical wiring and insulation. Also the replacement of the gas heating with a wood burning stove with back boiler. There’s a tank for the central heating and a separate tank for domestic hot water. More work could restore this magnificent old house to its former glory. Ideal as a spacious family home, impressive holiday get away or charming Chambres d’hotes.
