The terrace in the shade of the oak tree


Vernacular architecture, this former chapel then monastery, with an existence of more than a thousand years, has become a family house of 245 m2, protected from view by its land of 4,056 m2, near Limoux.

Traditionally built in stone, the house has evolved since the acquisition of the current owners to harmonize with its surrounding green setting. Elements such as small-paned arched windows, discreetly painted green shutters, whitewashed walls and sandstone floors accentuate the symbiosis. Original grills, stained glass windows, oblong windows on the first floor, and a stone sink evoke the clerical past.
The garden level hosts a large living space, a winter garden, a kitchen and a summer kitchen. Upstairs, three bedrooms and an office share the space.
Further on, in the same building, a small gîte with its vaulted cellar completes this charming ensemble. Facing south, the 200 m2 terrace that borders the house is shaded by the natural parasol provided by an incredible seven hundred year old oak tree. A flight of steps gives access to the pond, which is a delight for the kidneys, as well as to the river below, and to the large swimming pool designed especially for the place, where a fountain by the artist Ariel Moscovici stands out.
Possibility of acquiring an adjoining non-building plot of land currently used for farming.
