From the listing on Leggett:
Luxury living in this stunningly prestigious “Maison de Maître” located in the heart of the village of Siran, which is surrounded by the vineyards and olive groves of the Minervois region in the South of France.
Take a step back in time into this historical three-story character home that has been priced to sell and comes fully furnished with period pieces as well as contemporary conveniences.
Entering the foyer and into the expansive hallway, you’ll be welcomed by the contrast of the one-of-a-kind black and white marble floors and romantic red and gold Persian area rugs.
As if out of a storybook, you’ll invite your guests into the sitting room made up of victorian era furniture, a marble fireplace, and chandeliers with which to dazzle them.
After your tea, head over to the charmingly decorated family and dining room. While warming your hands you’ll notice that the fireplace is local marble from the quarries of the Caunes-Minervois here in Aude. Step through the doors into the separate kitchen, which is fully equipped and would delight any chef.
The second-floor of this elegant home consists of three bedrooms decorated with exotic wooden furniture and ensuite facilities. What I love about this floor are the magnificent indoor and outdoor terraces, which are perfect for entertaining friends and family. The solid wooden beams combined with the stone walls of the spacious indoor terrace give it a rustic feel. There’s plenty of room to add a kitchen for your future barbeques. Step through the pristine sliding glass door onto the south-facing terrace where you can enjoy your sun-kissed afternoons reading with a glass of rosé.
Ascend the alluring marble staircase to the third floor which features towering ceilings with magnificent wooden beams and original tile flooring. This entire floor can be used as a retreat for your guests and comes with a fully equipped open-spaced kitchen, dining room, and sitting area, and two air-conditioned bedrooms, both with en-suite facilities including a shower, bathtub, and a toilet.
A rare opportunity to own, you’ll be close to public transports and walking distance from local amenities. This move-in-ready property is less than an hour’s drive from the Mediterranean and 35 minutes to Carcassonne where you can spend your weekends touring the Medieval Cité and ride bikes on the banks of the Canal du Midi under the shade of the majestic plane trees.
