For sale Villelongue dels Monts 66740, Roussillon, France

(Roussillon, France)

House seen from west

House seen from west


This beautifully renovated and rebuilt small stone house is situated at the upper edge of a hill village,
almost on the Spanish-French border and less than ten miles from Mediterranean beaches.
It's near the top of a quiet ('cul-de-sac') tree-lined road which winds up into the Alberes hills.
Major supermarkets, banks, pavement cafés & restaurants, are only twenty easy minutes away by car.

It would be ideal for a couple (or a single person), perhaps with one small child ;
who want and who can afford to buy the best available little home in the sun.

The house was rebuilt with low maintenance, and high security when absent, as priorities.
With the transmitting electricity meter (no unpaid bills to worry about !)
it would be ideal also as a 'lock-up-and-leave' holiday home.

Inside :
Upstairs, the 18 square metres main living area has exposed oak beams and varnished woodwork,
smooth hand-polished stonework walls (probably not to be found elsewhere),
lovely old terracotta brickwork, and three large quadruple-glazed hardwood windows.
It is floored with solid oak parquet, presently covered with easily-removable loose-laid carpet.
It contains many quaint features ; brick arches, niches, wall cupboards.

It opens onto a raised study area with a large desk, bookcases, and built-in cupboards.
This study could also be used as an extra bedroom, for guests or for a young child.
There is a partly-concealed bespoke teak kitchen, with double sink, extractor hood, microwave oven.

In the lower floor, reached by a unique 'art-deco-style' fully-tiled staircase,
a large and peaceful modern bedroom has built-in wardrobes and cupboards, and a fully tiled floor.
Leading from it is a small, well ventilated storeroom.
The modern bathroom is well equipped, fully tiled, with bespoke cupboards and washing machine.

Outside :
There's a stone-paved walled and gated courtyard, which is large enough for parking a small car or van.
There is also free street parking close to the house.
A small car could be left securely in the courtyard during absences,
and parked in the street during holiday occupation thus leaving the courtyard free for other uses ;
such as entertaining and sunbathing (it faces south).
The partly-roofed and shady tiled terrace has a brick and stone hood and high chimney for the barbecue,
and space for alfresco dining at a table for four.
Views of the trees and high hills to the south and east ; and neighbouring gardens.

Technical :
The terracotta-tiled roof was completely rebuilt in 2001 on steel supports, and is thickly insulated.
There are connections for telephone and broadband, and wiring for TV and satellite dish.
Main water and drainage are connected, both having been replaced with new updated systems.
Electricity, supplied by EDF, is low-cost ; 85% being generated by nuclear energy in France.
The house has ample storage space throughout, some of which is built into the thick stone walls.

Travel :
Perpignan airport is about 30 minutes away by car, for Ryanair and Air France flights.
TGV services to Spain halt at Perpignan's modern SNCF station, with a regional bus station.
The regional bus service has a standard one €uro go-anywhere fare.
The nearest train station is at Argeles, with connections to Perpgnan, Narbonne, and further north.
Trains also run south from there along the coast, providing lovely views ; without traffic !
By road, there are fast autoroutes all the way to the Channel ; and, of course, to the rest of France.

The price
is £130,000, or 147,000€ (fluctuating).
