This is a very unusual property which has been very stylishly renovated.

Although completely secluded at the end of a 1.5 km lane, the market town of Chalabre is just a 4-kilometre drive away.

The property itself sits on a promontory with amazing views of the Pyrenees and surrounding countryside and is surrounded by mature gardens and woodland.

The house currently consists of a main house and a gte but there is plenty of scope to extend the living space.

The faade is a complete surprise: the main entrance is through thick double glass doors and all the window openings have been framed by beautiful stone mouldings.

The main house features a huge kitchen/dining/living space and above this an equally huge sitting room with a balcony and lovely views.

At this level there are two bedrooms, one with doors opening onto a south-facing terrace, and a shower room.

A mezzanine leads to a third bedroom with roof terrace which can either be part of the main house or the gte.

The gte has a separate entrance into an open-plan living/dining/kitchen area. To the rear of the kitchen is a shower room.

On the first floor is a spacious bedroom with views of the Pyrenees.

This floor can communicate with the third bedroom and roof terrace, thus becoming a two-bedroomed gte.

There are various barns and workshops which could be converted to further living accommodation.

There is a small pond in front of the main entrance and mature gardens and woodland surround the property.

The vegetable garden is well-know locally as flourishing and producing without water - a method developed by the current owner.

One of the roofs has solar panels which currently provide an income of 2,400 euros per year.

Heating is via wood-burning stoves and the property is partially double-glazed.

The views are magnificent and the only sounds are those of birds. Perfect for a retreat or yoga holidays.

It's about 30 minutes to Limoux or Mirepoix.
