Happy Tuesday! A pretty riverside three-bedroom home circa 1800s with a garden, in the Pyrenées of southern France.
This home looks quite unassuming from the exterior, but with a deeper look this home has some magical qualities. A beautiful garden with vegetable plot and fruit trees borders a canal crossed by arched bridge and rushing water. Inside, the rooms are full of golden sunlight and plenty of character. With some restoration, this would be a beautiful place to call home.
From the listing on Leggett:
Spacious 3 bedroom village house with garden, Ria-Sirach, close to the market town of Prades. Midway between the ski, 51km & the sea, 58km to the sea and only 49km to Perpignan with its airport, TGV train station and A9 motorway to the Spanish border.
This fantastic renovation project situated in the centre of Ria offers a nice sized garden of just under 300m2, flat with grass area and vegetable plot with canal water for watering and the river Tet below.
Built in the 1800’s the entrance to the property in marble leads to a covered courtyard with arch, marble steps lead up to the main residence which has 2 large bright bedrooms one overlooking the garden and river and the other with an original fireplace.
There is the original kitchen with larder cupboard and a large dining area with river view.
The attic is shouting out to be converted and offers 3 rooms totalling around 75m2 of space and already has window openings and the roof has been renewed
From the courtyard, there is more living space which was originally used as an independent apartment and has large living area with small kitchen area, a shower room and bedroom all with views over the garden and river. There are 2 cellar areas one with a door that takes you in to the garden,
A fantastic project which is habitable and could be a great family house or indeed a bed and breakfast. A rare find and a must see!
