Utterly adorable complete rarity – A small house – But, not only with garden space, but also with two bedrooms and two washrooms / toilets – At this price this is almost unheard of…… This is a gem…. and I haven’t seen a price as good as this for nearly 20 years – fabulous buy.
The icing on the cake – ( cerise sur le gateau ) – is that it is in a small country town – just too big to be called a village – that has positively the best Friday Market for miles around. Local produce and the best seafood that I’ve come across since I lived on the coast in UK. Lots of other things as well…
It’s called Lavelanet…….. It’s got proper Supermarkets on the outskirts , Aldi, Lidl, Action, Intermarche, ….. and , in the the middle, a range of restaurants , bars, boutique shops – and the nearest Cinema for miles around.
And, if you like skiing, in winter you can be ” boots on ” at Mont d’Olmes, our local, friendly, ski resort – complete with lots of little restaurant / bars if you don’t want to ski – but just want to sit in the sun and look at the mountains…. ( my preferred option…. ) in about 15 /20 minutes. Even if you only used it in the Winter this would be a fabulous investment that could give a whole new meaning to ” I’m dreaming of white Christmas “. Imagine heading to France for Christmas…..and, of course, there is the letting potential when you are not using it yourself…..
Through the front door into the living space – currently 2 rooms – but Joe and I both feel that we’d be inclined to make it one big space –
Then, downstairs, to the shower room and the modern kitchen – that leads to the garden… not huge , but plenty of space to BBQ, eat outside, ( whilst enjoying a glass of wine or two )…. and perfect for morning coffee after you’ve decided which Boulangerie to walk to for your morning croissant. Then, back up to front door level ,with its two rooms , then up again to two bedrooms and a toilet and washbasin room….
The real joy of this house is that you can walk to everything…. Perfect, ” tucked away” central location… no need to get the car out, just decide which restaurant, which bar, is going to be lucky enough to have your company this evening or lunchtime …. then walk there….
This 2 bedroom house is perfect if you want a ” lock up and leave ” holiday home, or you are people who want enough space for yourselves / yourself, plus a couple of friends visiting….
I’d mention that it was not the Agency who set the price – ( we would have set it higher ) – but the current owners had decided the price they wanted, and we have, of course, respected their decision.
This is just such a good buy…… two bedrooms, garden space, two washrooms, (one a shower room the other a toilet plus washbasin )….. what could you buy elsewhere for this price ? actually, we think, virtually nothing …. just such a bargain……..do come and visit this astounding little property,,,,, it’s a total gem.
