Luxurious, elegant style living in a beautiful garden park on the edge of the beautifully situated municipality of Labastide-Rouairoux , what more could one want more of a house in the beautiful Tarn region of Languedoc - a real gem in one of the last affordable regions of southern France.
Labastide-Rouairoux has a weekly market, as well as the nearby town of Saint Pons de Thomieres, the capital of the beautiful Haut Languedoc nature reserve, whose settlement dates back to the Stone Age, as can be seen in the Prehistoric Museum. Labastide has a textile museum because it was the most important textile city in the region because of the purity of the river water.
The vineyards of the Minervois are a 30 minute drive from the house, and the Mediterranean beaches can
be reached in 75 minutes.
The house is accessible over a bridge over the River Thor, which is shared with one other property. The driveway starts at the gate and leads to the large garages under the house and to the multiple entrances of the house.
We start at the kitchen door and arrive in a spacious fully equipped kitchen, modern, tasteful and beautifully finished. As with many large kitchens it is possible to dine here, have breakfast or lunch, but there is also a spacious dining room with doors to the garden. An arch leads to the large lounge, a spacious living room with multiple double doors to the gardens and a beautiful fireplace.
Through to the hallway leading to a corridor with 5 bedrooms, most en-suite and through a very nice wooden staircase we reach the first floor with a lounge / library in the same generous proportions as downstairs and another 2 bedrooms, plus a office; an amazing choice of rooms, all beautifully finished.
Under the house are the basements with garages and workshop.
The surrounding landscaped gardens are located on different levels, with beautiful mature trees and surrounded by the River Thor along the entire front. A charming covered summer kitchen equipped with barbecue is a real bonus as well as the large above ground pool.
The house is within walking distance of all conveniences, shops, restaurants, doctor, pharmacy, banks etc.
