Gated 16th Century Country House & Apartment
Besset, Mirepoix

This fabulous beamed property is in excellent condition and is located in the small town of Besset close to the medieval city of Mirepoix. It is within easy reach of Toulouse and Carcassonne Airports and direct trains to Barcelona, Andorra and Paris. The property comes with planning permission for 2 apartments to be built in another section of the garden with a view to additional rental income.

This lovely country house for sale in France is in the Ariege department of the country and is in a very private and secluded position yet only a 5 min drive to Mirepoix where there are many shops, bars and restaurants. Mirepoix has one of the finest surviving arcaded market squares bordered by houses dating from the 13th to the 15th centuries.

The property is at the end of private road and is accessed through automatic gates, flanked by a pair of limited edition Kingsdale Hounds, leading on to a driveway. The house was originally a monastery that has been totally restored and modernised to a very high standard. It is now a substantial house with an apartment which is perfect for renting or separate accommodation for visiting family and friends.

The original front door opens into a vaulted reception hall overlooking the main drawing room with a grand central fireplace. The house has all the original beams and features and comprises 3 lounges, 2 large modern kitchens, a dining room, a billiards room, a conservatory, 7 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and a sauna. In addition there is a garage and workshop large enough for 3 cars and a utility room.

The house stands on 1.5 hectares of land surrounded by beautiful countryside. Outside there are several terraces for relaxed entertaining with 2 barbecue areas, a swimming pool, a summer bar and a reception area. The grounds are fully cultivated with hundreds of various plants including olive, mulberry and Cyprus trees with many shrubs and roses giving colour all year round.

The beaches on the Mediterranean are about an hour away and the Spanish border is 1 hr 30 mins. The property is close enough for a full day's skiing in the local resort of Mont D'Olmes or within an hour of Andorra. A fabulous place to buy a country house in France!!
