The possibilities are endless for this wonderful property in the Minervois, now part vineyard, part arable, part pine wood. It has views over the Pyrenees and La Montagne Noire. Original features in the main house have been preserved. - Ripe for conversion, this maison de viticulteur with wine caves and other outbuildings presents a golden opportunity for anyone wanting peace and quiet in the countryside, whilst being 4 km from Minerve, designated 'One of the Most Beautiful Villages of France' and close to other villages with shops and other amenities. The winemaking business could be continued, or the property could be used for tourism or as a country retreat. There are rare orchids and a large selection of other wild flowers in the garrigue which is part of the property. More adjoining vineyard land is available for purchase. There are a stone cabanon and a dolmen too! In the stone-built farmhouse there are marble fireplaces and the original decorated tile flooring; also the original windows and doors, even wallpaper from the 1930s. There are 4 bedrooms in the farmhouse, and 2 in the smaller house adjoining; there are living room, kitchen and bathroom in each. The farmhouse has a large attic to convert. The wine cave behind the existing living accommodation could be converted to house between 7 and 10 en suite bedrooms, subject to planning permission. There is an underground water course (away from the buildings) which might be usable to create a lake or other water feature. All amenities are available in Olonzac, 8 km away, and the nearest large town is Narbonne, 35 km away. The sea is 50 minutes away at Narbonne Plage or Gruissan Plage.
