Maison Roland - CAUS104
Beautifully restored village house with a pool in the centre of a quiet village on the edge of the Haut Languedoc National Park. Air-conditioning. UK satellite TV. Sleeps 8 people comfortably.
This newly restored and decorated village house has spacious accommodation on three floors.
The house is situated directly on the village square, and is entered from the side via an iron gate and a short flight of stone steps leading to first floor level.
On entering the house you find yourself in a spacious hall with a stone floor and double doors leading off to the kitchen/dining room, the reception room and a separate cloakroom with handbasin and wc.
Wooden stairs from the hall lead down to what would once have been the garage. This space has been completely renovated and is now a large comfortable living area which looks out onto the square, at ground floor level. There are French doors with an electric shutter for privacy as well as two windows, so the room is very light and spacious.
One door leads to a twin room with ensuite shower room; another door leads to a utility room with sink, washing machine, tumble dryer, microwave and ironing board.
Once again in the main hall, the door to the left leads to the dining room and kitchen, with access to the garden.
The door to the right opens into the first floor reception/sitting room,with three French windows which open onto little cast - iron 'baies' and look out onto the village square. These tall windows flood the room with natural light. The room has original wooden beams and a fireplace, and is decorated with quality furnishings with an oriental flavour.
All the floors on this and the ground level have been tiled with pale coloured stone tiles, giving a feeling of continuity and light throughout.
Also off the hall, a stone staircase leads up to the second floor.The first door on the right at the top of the stairs is the master bedroom, a large, light and airy room decorated in pastel lilac with a fantastic carved wooden bed. This room has an ensuite bathroom with a whirlpool bath, a walk-in shower with jets and a seat, a handbasin and wc.
Straight ahead from the top of the stairs is the main family bathroom. This room has a free standing bath tub with shower attachment over, plus a walk-in shower with jets and a seat,a generous size handbasin, and wc. The suite is white with brass fittings.
To the right of this bathroom is a twin bedroom with good quality sleigh beds; and to the left is a double bedroom with a wooden sleigh bed decorated with pink silk fabric.
There is new wooden flooring throughout on this level; all the rooms have good quality furniture and linen, including wardrobes and bedside tables with nightlamps.
The main entrance to the house is at the side, up a short flight of steps. At this level there is a small garden area to the left, with an area of 'astro' turf with a little table and chairs; this garden is at first floor height and looks out onto the village square. To the left of this is another garden area with a gate; this garden belongs to the neighbour on the right who has access behind the property and across the garden.
Behind the property and the access path is another enclosed garden area behind another lockable iron gate. This leads up to the swimming pool; there are a dozen steps in all with a terraced rockery area to the right. At the top of the steps on the left is the swimming pool area with table and chairs and sunloungers and an outdoor shower. This area is elevated and so gives a good view over the village.
