An exceptional, one-of-a-kind, high-end barn conversion for sale in a lively village with restaurants and supermarkets, close to Narbonne, offering almost 300m² of habitable space, comprising 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, an immense living room, a large terrace and an amazing first floor suspended swimming pool.
The property which was designed by an award-winning British architect, is located in a quiet street in the heart of the village, set behind high wrought iron gates within a private secure development shared by 2 other prestigious properties. It was renovated less that 10 years ago to create an exciting, contemporary ‘loft style’ home, with a mix of modern and original architectural features, using the highest quality materials throughout.
The entrance door opens on to a vast living space, with double height ceilings. This room opens on to a cosy multimedia entertainment area featuring a ‘window’ that looks into the swimming pool on the terrace of the floor above. Off this space is small hall leading to a utility room, a cloakroom and a large bedroom with glazed doors opening on to a private courtyard. A flight of stairs from this courtyard leads to the terrace and swimming pool. Off the courtyard is a spacious storage area/pool house.
From the living room, a modern minimalist staircase made of wood and steel leads to a mezzanine floor where the contemporary kitchen/dining room is sited. There are bi-fold glass doors along the entire width of the mezzanine which open on to the terrace. The terrace comprises a 9m x 4m pool and an outdoor entertaining area with built in BBQ.
A short flight of stairs from the mezzanine lead to the first floor, where there are 3 bedrooms. The master bedroom is on split levels with large glazed doors overlooking the terrace and swimming pool. The central feature of the bedroom is a stunning tiled sunken bath. In addition, there is an en suite shower room, with double hand basins and WC, as well as a dressing room. The second bedroom, which overlooks the courtyard also has an en suite bathroom, with a roll top bath, whilst the third bedroom overlooks the terrace and pool. There is a family bathroom on this floor too.
The attic floor comprises a large room (only part of which has full height) with its own dressing room and bathroom. This space is ideal as a children’s bedroom/play room.
At the front of the house the property benefits from the shared use of a charming courtyard with a cast-iron fountain and its dedicated parking space for 2 cars.
This impressive property has been used as a holiday home since renovation and therefore is in immaculate condition, showing little wear and tear. For those seeking an extraordinary, contemporary, easy to maintain home, in a lively village, this is the ideal proposition!
