This utterly fabulous property  – ( detached, generous garden, stunning views )  –  is fractionally outside of the area that we usually cover….but, this  property is just such a gem that we couldn’t resisit…..

As an Agency we are falling more and more in love with the area between Chalabre ( where we started ) and Carcassone…… and one of our utter favorities is Fanjeux  –  where this stunning property is……..
This is a far more ” Mediterranean ” climate  than where Joseph and I live…. and has the added benefit of being nearer to Carcassonne –  so incredibly easy for travelling…….
This propery is a total gem,  we are seriously proud to have been chosen to represent it, and, we promise you, this is one of the best properties we have seen in a month of Sundays……
It has, already,  4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, it also has 2 garages, 2 sitting rooms , a seriously generous   –  (  but not unmanageable  )  – garden of about 1,000 sq metres  –  surrounding the property  –  complete with mature and glamourous trees  – a conservatory  –   and the possibility to re-imagine /re-jig  the spaces to suit your own lifestyle…..
The old village of central Fanjeux is on top of a hill……it date back centuries  – a marvellous warren of little streets, village houses, and stunning views in all directions….. Later, the original, tiny, village crept down the slopes of the hill…. And this is one of the propeties that benefitted from this expansion….
To the rear of the property the views are amazing… To the front facade you enter via double iron gates….  As the property is built on a sloping site the architects took advantage of this to design the 2 garages at lower ground floor level….. (Joseph and I both felt that the current access to the real “Ground floor ‘ could be improved by replacing the current access  –  from the larger garage  – with a sturdier, “proper ”  staircase…. and would be far prettier… )  . This is, actually, possibly the only comment for  ” total approval ” that we can make about this stunning property…
At ” Ground floor proper ” you have utttterly stunning views to the rear….. looking out towards the Black Mountains and Carcassonne…..this property is in one of the “quiet ” areas of Fanjeaux, …. and is detached,  wrapped in its own mature  gardens; …..
 Previous owners have concentrated therir living at first floor level  –  to take advantage of the views and the generous balcony  –   …..  a hugely generous kichen / diner , a  sitting room  – complete with a log burning fireplace – , all leading out to the balcony overlooking the gardens …. bliss….
Plus; 3 bedrooms, leading off a central corridoor, with a full bathroom and seperate toilet at the end of the corridoor, , serving the ” bedrooms   –   ( I forgot to mention the ground floor bedroom with its ‘ own en – suite  at gound foor level… )  –  … Honestly, this is one of the best properties we have seen for ages…..
Now look at the price  –  And ask yourself what you could get for this price anwhere else ?
This is a scrumptious, detached property, with central heating, near but not ” in ” a medieval village,  close to Carcassonne  –  ( and easy travel  / inexpensive Ryanair flights  )   –    It is already a 4 bedroom property  –  Built when quality mattered  –  look at all the windows …. they are “French ” windows, fitted to let the light flood in…..  and  to start your day by looking out over your own gardens….
Plenty of room for a pool, if that is what could put the ” icing on the cake ”   –   the  ” cerise sur le gateau ” for you  –  and  the addition of a barbeque could probably, make the dream complete …. And just so easy to do…..loads of room in the gardens that wrap around the property……
In our opinion this is an utterly super buy…… the price asked goes beyond ” reasonable ”   … it’s ” realistic  ”  to put it mildly…. Genuinely ” Priced to sell ” by an owner who could never be described as ” greedy “…….The current owner has had a totally wonderful time here  –  but now feels tha it is time to rejoin their family….  a hard decision ….. but one Joseph andn I utterly respect…..
No silly offers please…..  Visit, see the property…. fall in love with it  …. ( we did  )  … and then buy what may well  be the ” Bargain of the Century “……
This is a total gem, so very, very excited to be selling this property…..  It’s elegant, flexible, seriously stunning…. and coud be “tweaked ” to suit your lifestyle totally……..If I’d finished my current renovation project  I would buy it myself….. What more can I say ?   Amazingly wonderful opportunity …..
