Located in a tranquil and walled location, the property benefits from the town's many attractions, its weekly Friday market, bespoke shops, tea-rooms and restaurants, and yet it is set back, as if observing the life of the town, from a safe and secluded position.
A white garden gate opens onto a charming internal courtyard ample enough in size to provide a shady corner for summer dining.
The old oak door opens onto an entrance hall, classical in style, which leads to a spacious double bedroom on the left which has two interesting features: a large original fireplace and a superb stone arch.
This bedroom benefits from a private en-suite shower room, which strikes a pleasing contemporary note in one of the oldest houses in town, and uses a mixture of materials from stone, to wood and soft pale ceramic tiles.
To the rear of the entrance hall, a large wooden door leads to a magnificent drawing-room with parma walls, a vast exposed oak beam and splendid vaulted arch in stone. This room also has a private cloakroom/WC and dressing-room.
A wooden-staircase leads to the first floor, with a pretty alcove lending character to the walls.
The property is atypical in so far as the first floor of the building houses a vast kitchen which is the heart of the household.
It is easy to see why such a choice has been made. The room is bathed in light, with far-reaching and breath-taking views to the south and to the mountains beyond.
From the kitchen there is access to a pleasant second reception-room, which could be used either as an upstairs drawing-room or dining-room. This is a warm and cosy room, with walls in tender-coloured greens and deliciously deep library reds. To complete our sense of cocoon-like comfort, there is a wood-burning stove in the fireplace for chilly winter nights.
On the other side of the kitchen a large double bedroom offers a different style, with its exposed stone-walls. Here there is an en-suite shower-room, a separate cloakroom/WC and a large dressing-room with light oak-coloured shelving.
A study decorated in soft reds provides a tranquil place to work away from the rest of the family.
The second-floor of this property has also been developed and here we find a sitting-room in pale blues, and a bedroom in pearl grey in a room which boasts the most magnificent parquet flooring. There is a separate WC on the second-floor.
These rooms sit directly above the first-floor kitchen and as such offer the same magnificent views over the roof-tops of the town to the Pyrenees etched on the distant horizon.
A bedroom painted in green sits on the other side of this floor along with a bathroom/WC and a small dressing-room.
The current owner has carefully decorated each room, in contrasting and pleasing colours. Each room in the property offers up its own special ambiance and each is as lovely as the next.
