Outstanding contemporary village home, offering approximately 380m² of habitable space, is actually a barn conversion and consists of 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and a large open-plan living area. It is set in a village with shops in a gated plot of over 850m², with a lovely Mediterranean garden, swimming pool and shared courtyard.

The property, which was formerly part of a 19th Century wine domaine, was designed and transformed around 10 years ago by an award-winning British architect. Today, it is a contemporary high-specification home on 3 levels, with high quality fittings and materials throughout, yet preserving the best features of the original building such as the impressive exposed beams and stone walls.

The house is set within a gated enclave of 3 high-end properties, behind high wrought iron gates which open onto a shared courtyard with a fountain in the centre. Large solid oak and glass doors open onto a spectacular open plan living room, with double height ceiling and three sets of bi-fold glass doors along the length of one side and another set at the back of the room, giving the room a light and airy feel. It is divided into defined spaces by the layout of the furniture, with a reception area, a sitting area and a dining area. To one end of the room is a fully equipped contemporary kitchen with a utility room and a pantry. There is also a guest cloakroom and a trapdoor to a subterranean wine cellar at this end, whilst at the other there is a large storage room.

A central stairwell leads to a landing on a mezzanine floor, which overlooks the open-plan living area and the pool and garden beyond. On one side of the landing is a television room and on the other there is a study. The staircase continues up to a modern minstrel’s gallery which overlooks the living space.

On the top floor, there are 3 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and two more bedrooms that share a family bathroom. The master bedroom has a magnificent bathroom with a lovely bath, as well as a dressing room. All the rooms have balconies overlooking either the pool area or the courtyard.

The outside space is divided into several areas on different levels, each with its own charm. The bi-fold doors along the length of the side of the house open onto the terrace, and swimming pool measuring 11.5m x 4m with tiled surround and majestic stone pillars. A few steps lead down to a Mediterranean garden where there is a seating area. Another flight of stairs leads to a sunken ‘secret garden’. To the end of the living room, the bi-fold doors open onto a large dining terrace.

This wonderful property is an exercise in elegant design and thoughtful restraint. It has been well maintained and is in immaculate condition throughout. Its location in a lively village and close proximity to Narbonne and Mediterranean beaches further adds to its desirability.

Saint-Marcel-sur-Aude is a lively village with all amenities including shops, restaurants and 2 supermarkets. It is 2 minutes from one of the most beautiful Canal du Midi villages, 11 minutes from Narbonne, 25 minutes from Mediterranean beaches and 45 minutes from international airports at Béziers, Carcassonne and Perpignan.
