Situated in a fine old 19th Century apartment building in one of the finest residential districts in the very heart of Toulouse is this wonderful 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment on two floors. The reception rooms have high ceilings, large windows, beautiful floors and elegant fireplaces. Importantly, the property has a designated courtyard parking.
The apartment is spread over the second and third floors and consists of six principal rooms, measuring almost 200 m² of habitable space, restored and renovated with style and immense attention to the character of the building.
The very beautiful main entrance hall is on the lower of the two floors and gives access to the two elegant reception rooms with oak parquet floors and fireplaces, a smaller television room, a fitted kitchen with plenty of cupboard space, two large, bright double bedrooms and a bathroom. On the floor above, accessed by a beautifully designed spiral staircase, is a very large loft-like suite with plenty of natural light thanks to the expanse of roof windows. There is the sitting room and a separate bedroom space as well as a modern shower room. This floor also benefits from a separate, independent entrance.
The property has a South-West/North-East orientation which makes it a very bright space. Many of the original 19th Century features have been retained such as mouldings, panelling, flooring, fireplaces and interior shutters.
The property benefits from a reserved parking space in the courtyard of the building and a 23 m² store room on the ground floor. There are just 12 other apartments in the building and the annual service charge amounts to 2500 Euros.
Toulouse is one of France’s most vibrant cities. It is often referred to as ‘La Ville Rose’ (the pink city), due to the rose-coloured buildings which give the city its famous warm glow. The city centre is a compact warren of winding cobbled streets and is a joy to explore on foot, especially since few cars brave the narrow streets. The Place du Capitole is the heart of the city and there can be few better places to watch the world go by.
Toulouse is known for its gastronomy and there are no less than 5 Michelin starred restaurants in the city, as well as countless less formal eateries of course. The Victor Hugo covered market is recognized as one of the best produce markets in the whole of France. The city is home to more than 50 art galleries and a dozen major museums, ranging from the cutting-edge to the traditional. The lively music scene ensures that every genre is catered for and there are many live events throughout the year.
The Canal du Midi runs through the city and this famous waterway adds a tranquility to the city. A gentle journey (by bike, foot or boat) along the tree-lined banks and a picnic provide the perfect antidote to the hustle and bustle.
One of the most attractive aspects of Toulouse is its position. Both Atlantic and Mediterranean coasts are accessible, as are the Pyrenees. Spain and the Basque Country. Toulouse International Airport is 7km from the city centre and Paris is only 4hrs away by TGV.
