These 2 houses situated in the most enviable position facing the Canal du Midi at Homps in the Aude have been architect designed using the very highest quality materials and workmanship.
With 470m2 of established gardens, huge south facing terrace and large shared courtyard at the front, these properties offer grand style living with a total habitable space of 245m2.
These superb houses were architect designed using the very finest materials to create 2 independent homes next door to each other right in front of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Canal du Midi at Homps. The total habitable space is 245m2 and the overall finish is of an extremely high standard with hand built kitchens, antique floor tiles, solid oak floors and windows. Both houses maintain their character and solidity coupled with excellent modern detail in the kitchens, bathrooms plus electric heating.
They are reached via a large shared (3 ways) courtyard with ample space for parking.
The main larger house offers 170m2 of living space. The ground floor consists of a beautiful semi open plan kitchen and salon of some 70m2 with very high ceiling and exposed beams. There is a gorgeous large stone working fireplace at one end. There is a utility room with WC, hallway and understairs cellar also on this floor.
Upstairs there is a mezzanine level measuring 30m2 currently used as office space/spare guest bedroom and then one floor further up takes you to 3 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, 1 being ensuite to the master bedroom.
The smaller house next door is completely independent of the larger one, thus making it ideal for guests or renting out. It has over 75m2 of living space consisting of a light open plan kitchen/salon of 30m2, separate WC and mezzanine level above of over 10m2 with beams and attractive metal balustrading. Upstairs there are 2 double bedrooms and full bathroom.
At the back of both houses there is a wonderful long south facing terrace with views and lower down a beautiful garden with mature fruit trees and shrubs. Plenty of space here to have a pool with still lots of space left over. There is a pretty pergola and garden shed. This is a garden to sunbathe or dream in with a glass of the local Minervois wine; it is just so lovely!
These properties have either antique tiles or solid oak floors throughout. The general feeling is one of light and space with fine features in keeping with the character of the houses such as beautiful doors and door furniture, high ceilings, beautiful stone, ironwork and beams and wood.
As if that isn't enough, the owners are including some of the top quality furniture in with the price.
Homps is a very popular unspoilt village with several restaurants on both sides of the Canal du Midi. There is a small shop, superb bakery and an excellent supermarket (open 365 days a year) within walking distance. The village lies about 35 minutes from Carcassonne airport with its regular flights to and from the UK and about the same to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Cite of Carcassonne. Beziers airport is about 50 minutes' drive away and Perpignan and Montpellier about an hour away. The Lac de Jouarres with its supervised watersports and restaurant lies about 15 minutes' walk away.
The sandy beaches of the Mediterranean are about 40 minutes' drive from here and you can be in Spain in a little over an hour.
These simply lovely houses will make a wonderful family home with plenty of guest accommodation or they would suit 2 families as a second home. They are elegant and solid and you could move straight in - highly recommended.
