Built to high specifications in 2011 a detached house in an elevated position overlooking the Pyrenees situated in the small village of Tabre in Ariege, 15 mins drive from the picturesque town on Mirepoix. 85% energy efficient. Gated, tarmacked long driveway with established flower beds and lawn to the side. The property is connected to the mains water supply, sewage, telephone line, electricty and gas. Internet connection.
This modernised detached stone-built house of some 173 sq metres dates from around 1850. It provides comfortable accommodation across three floors, is south facing and overlooks a largely enclosed private garden of some 1650 sq metres. There is off-road parking in the garage, on hard standing and on the gravel area we normally use as a boules pitch.
The property lies at the south-western corner of the village, its flank wall forming part of the original mediaeval defensive ramparts. Planning permission was gained to insert a full-height Juliet balcony window in this ancient wall, which has created a light and airy reception/dining area on the ground floor. An ancient beam spans the entire length of the high ceiling, giving the room impressive dimensions. The small kitchen comes fully equipped, and there is a downstairs utility room with WC.
