This first-class château conversion in the Tarn provides a fully restored luxury apartment, ideal for holidays and longer stays, and is the perfect solution for those buyers dreaming of the low-maintenance luxury lifestyle. The property is set in the countryside, amid communal grounds of over six acres with a shared swimming pool. A resident caretaker provides full management facilities and, for buyers who want to take advantage of the excellent rental potential, the caretaker will assist with letting arrangements.
Entry is through a set of glazed double doors from the superb central courtyard which lead into a very spacious main living room, kitchen and dining area. A sympathetic restoration has preserved many original features, including large ceiling beams, timbered pillar supports, dressed stonework and a ceiling-height, open stone fireplace. The kitchen is fully fitted with an island unit. Double-glazed doors open on to a private paved terrace offering magnificent country views.
A staircase leads up to the first floor landing, providing access to three bedrooms with high-beamed ceilings, timber flooring and windows overlooking the courtyard or countryside. The first bedroom boasts an en-suite shower room, while the second has an L-shape. There’s also a second shower room. Furnished throughout, the property’s contents are available for purchase.
The property is south-east of Albi, the Tarn’s capital, and within easy reach of a lively local town with all amenities. Medieval Albi, nicknamed ‘la ville rouge’ for the widespread use of red brick tiles, has much to offer visitors. The Cathédrale Sainte-Cécile could easily be mistaken for an imposing fortress while the Palais de la Berbie houses the largest collection of works by the locally-born painter, Toulouse-Lautrec.
Location: Near Albi, Tarn
Communal Grounds: Over 6 acres & a swimming pool
