Luxurious property in city centre

  • Proven substantial income
  • Elegant decor
  • Town centre
  • Popular tourist destination
  • High standard renovation
  • Separate apartment, garden and pool
In the most sought-after neighbourhood of Carcassonne discover, hidden behind unassuming high gates, this elegant character property has been totally refurbished and renovated to a high standard, to provide not only a lot of accommodation but also a spacious and comfortable independent private apartment.
It will be sold as seen with everything in place in order that the next owners can step into the seasoned shoes of the current proprietors, if necessary, with the possibility of operating as extremely successful luxury business that has in the past delivered bankable yearly profit with minimal effort. This includes the website, forward bookings, furniture, fixtures, fittings and equipment plus of course the goodwill that comes with a business that has already gained a solid reputation.
The property could provide a lucrative guesthouse, a self-contained one bedroom garden facing apartment and a 3 bedroomed apartment accessed from the side of the building which affords the owners substantial and stylish living accommodation which is both private and big enough for entertaining their own guests. This home could provide a generous family home or city home for someone who enjoys entertaining a lot of friends.
The main house, in true maison de maître style, has a spacious entrance hall with doors to reception rooms either side and a beautiful sweeping central staircase leading to the upper floors. On the ground floor are 3 reception rooms including an elegant dining room with windows overlooking the pool and garden, a fitted kitchen with separate larder, an inner hall with cloakroom and storage cupboard, access to a second staircase which leads to the owners apartment, a door to a private courtyard and one to the basement. On the first floor a suite comprising bedroom, bathroom, dressing room and linen room, double doors from the landing lead to the owners apartment. On the second floor, a large landing and 4 further suites one with a sitting room and 2 with access to a balcony overlooking the pool, a stock room and access to the loft. All rooms are well proportioned and tastefully decorated.
The owners apartment comprises a large hallway, 3 bedrooms, one en suite, bathroom, fitted kitchen and spacious living room. A separate staircase from this apartment leads to a side entrance to the street.
The well appointed 1 bedroomed self-contained apartment is accessed from the garden and has its own entrance and terrace.
There are multiple storage areas plus a laundry in the huge basement and a private courtyard to the rear of the property. The south facing Mediterranean style garden with its heated saltwater swimming pool is totally private, perfect for relaxing and al fresco dining.
The property is unique in so many ways. It is a centrally located, at the heart of the city, but with a spaciousness and a tranquillity you would expect from being in the countryside. Even outside by the pool in the garden you are completely unaware of being so close to the centre.
In addition to the proximity of the city, the Mediterranean is less than an hour away. To the North are the beautiful Black mountains, to the South the wine growing garrigue of the Corbières and of course the Pyrenees and Spain are also within 2 hours away. The town is swiftly becoming a destination town for the corporate events and entertainment industries with the Carcassonne Festival drawing in the biggest names in the music industry.

Carcassonne itself attracts 2 million tourists a year, who come to enjoy a city break. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of La Cité is within easy walking distance, as well as the city centre with its boulevards of elegant boutiques and independent restaurants.
The property benefits from unrivalled transport links that enable easy access to the airport and train station without the need for car hire. The property also has its own double garage and there is further underground parking close by.
Carcassonne airport flies to 10 international destinations, with more scheduled to open soon. The train station is walkable from the guesthouse and trains run hourly to Toulouse, which has one of the busiest international airports in France and the TGV will get you to Paris in under 5 hours.
Let yourself be wowed, just like the guests of this aspirational guesthouse as they walk over the threshold. Whether you are new to the business or an old hand, we are confident in presenting you with a highly profitable and safe investment that is a joy to be in.

Discuss an Offer

If this or other properties are of potential serious interest, you may wish to speak in confidence and without obligation or commitment with a sympathetic senior negotiator to discuss what flexibility there may be in the price.

Getting the right deal can be a question of good timing and we have that information.

Whatever you read in the press, it is simply not true that one can apply a percentage discount to the price of any property we like the look of. And it is a real shame to fall in love with a property that is beyond what you wish to spend or can afford.
