HOUSE As you walk down the gated driveway you will find the small house on the right.
GROUND FLOOR (60 m2) The ground floor of the smaller house has been recently, entirely renovated with:
• new electrics
• double glazing
• tiled floor throughout
• new kitchen
• new shower room
• electric shutters
The entrance door leads into a hallway (home to the hot water cylinder) and with space for a washing machine. To the right is the modern shower room with an Italian shower, WC, a lovely wash basin set in a drawer unit. There are three double glazed windows with external grills, an extractor fan and electric towel radiator/heater. The door from the entrance leads into the large living area with a double-glazed window and electric radiator at either side. The kitchen is new with fitted units, an oven, gas hob, extractor and sink. The kitchen opens into a 2nd entrance hall where it would be possible to add a cupboard for outdoor clothing and shoes. There are two double bedrooms, both with electric radiators and views of the mountains.
FIRST FLOOR External steps lead up to a small roof terrace and into the first floor of the house with:
• opening at each side
• high ceilings
• Velux windows
This huge space (approx. 55 m2) is ready to be developed and could be made into a separate apartment.
BARN The large barn (approx. 300 m2) is divided into three separate areas.
AREA 1 A large, high and open entrance opens into the first area in the barn. This space is open right up to the roof of the barn and the owners have started to divide it into two spaces. A first floor could be added to this space.
AREA 2 The ground floor of Area 2 has 4 windows, a wide door (which would be perfect for a patio door), exposed ceiling beams and a pebble stone floor.
AREA 3 Like Area 2 but slightly smaller, this space has 3 windows and a staircase that leads up to the first floor. The first floor of the barn covers areas 2 and 3 and has a high ceiling. This is a fabulous project and offers many possibilities including a large family home, three gites, group accommodation or a combination of all three.
EXTERIOR To the rear of the barn is a large piece of land which is divided by a low stone wall into two lovely areas with trees and shrubs. The smaller gardens at the side of the barn and house both lead into the larger area at the rear. On one side of the garden a lovely stream runs down the side and onwards towards the neighbouring ‘moulin’ which has been renovated by the Mairie and has a lovely ‘Indiana Jones’ style small park at the side. Between the barn and house is a small cement terrace and there is an additional terrace in front of the small house. The entrance gate leads into the long driveway with parking for several vehicles and to the left of the driveway is a garden which would make an ideal vegetable patch. All the gardens are entirely enclosed. At the rear of the small house and in the corner of the garden is a little cabin that was once an outdoor WC but is now a small garden store.
RENOVATION WORKS The owner has kindly provided us with a list of work undertaken and costs to share with prospective buyers visiting the property.

Pyrenees - Haute Garonne Ski Area
The department of Haute-Garonne borders onto Spain in the south and forms part of the French Midi-Pyrénées region and is surrounded by the departments of Hautes-Pyrénées, Gers, Tarn-et-Garonne, Tarn, Aude, Ariège and the Val d’Aran in Spain.
The Garonne river rises from across from the Spanish border, descending for some 500km down through the Pyrénées mountains, via Toulouse into the Atlantic ocean at Bordeaux, leaving in its wake, beautiful lakes, powerful rapid waters and challenging peaks to explore.
In the summer, the region offers an amazing choice of activities including rafting, potholing, paragliding , climbing, golf, fishing, horse-riding, gliding, adventure parks, fabulous hikes, mountain bike and of course many Tour de France climbs for cyclists and bikers. Visitors are always amazed at the choice of activities, tourist attractions and friendly welcome on offer here right in the centre of the Pyrenees.
The proximity to Spain is a lovely extra little touch with the opportunity to experience two different cultures and sample the local tapas, sangria and rioja wine.
Toulouse is the main, international airport for the region, with daily flights to the UK and other European and long-haul destinations and Tarbes/Lourdes airport offers access in under an hour.
Motorway access to the villages is easy with routes from Bordeaux, Paris, Lyon and Marseille and you can also cruise overnight via ferry to Santander and Bilbao in Spain.
There is a choice of excellent ski resorts in the area catering for all abilities, including; Luchon Superbagneres (the second ski resort to open in France after Chamonix) with its excellent après-ski facilities. Imagine relaxing after a day’s skiing in the thermal spa, having a massage before enjoying a lovely meal with friends or even an English film at the little cinema in the centre of town! In 1854 Luchon received the title of "Queen of the Pyrenees" and it is easy to see why with its beautiful boulevard and impressive villas, spa, casino and mansions.
The resort of Le Mourtis is really geared towards families, looking for the facilities and activities that ensure their children are happy and entertained. Situated just 10km from St Beat, an historical Pyrenean village famous for its marble an just 5 minutes to the border of Spain.
If you’re a more advanced skier or snow-border, you will enjoy the resort of Peyragudes with its Vallee Blanche and fabulous snow record. You can drive to the resort or take advantage of the free bus from the centre of Luchon.
Bourg d’Oeuil is a charming small village nestling at the bottom of the Oueil valley and is the starting point for a variety of hiking trails. In Winter the village is a favourite for those looking to alpine ski and participate in snowshoeing.
And whilst here, why not sample skiing in Baqueira/Beret in Spain – a favourite with the Spanish Royal family.
