Here’s a renovation project with with big potential and any number of possible outcomes! At present, this magnificent 14 bedroom courtyard town centre building, 15 minutes from Castres and close to a local airport and a new hospital, is double glazed and structurally sound with a good roof but the interior needs to be returned to its former glory.

The property has its very own ramparts, oak beams and large fireplaces, dates back to the 15th Century in part and offers a great opportunity to restore this fine building. It has been owned and maintained by the same family for generations. In its current state it is structurally sound with double glazing and a good roof. Internally it is in need of some renovation. The property is connected to mains drainage.

Currently, it offers 14 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 6 reception rooms (several of which are around 40 m²), a kitchen, utility room, sewing room, study, and antechamber, giving approximately 800 m² of habitable space. In addition there are 5 attics providing another 170 m² of full head-height potential living space. 

In addition there are 3 courtyards, one with a glazed roof three storeys up! Ancillary areas on the ground floors of the East and West wings offer another 160 m² of development potential and include a large garage, a stable, oat room, saddle room and boiler room. 

There is also a sizeable basement including an air source heat pump installed in 2008, a brand new fuel heat pump with a 6000L tank and a wine cellar. The building is attached on both sides, on a plot of 950 m². The main grassed courtyard is 276 m² and provides plenty of parking. The two further internal courtyards extend to 28 m² and 45 m².

Shops and restaurants are near at hand and within easy walking distance. The nearest international airport is a drive of 50 kms.
