Land 570000 m² (about 6127500 ft²)
Located 5 minutes from the centre of Rennes-le-Château and 45 min from the medieval city of Carcassonne and its airport, this property of 57 hectares consists of a 500 m² farmhouse and a 200 m² barn. The two-storey house is composed of 4 bedrooms, a living room, a big kitchen, a bathroom, a shower-room and diverse rooms to convert. Perched at an altitude of 430 metres, this property has unobstructed views of the surrounding environment. It's a genuine haven of peace that you're going to discover on the trail leading to the property, a wild and fragrant scrubland enchanted by the chirping of crickets and birds. The huge forest (27 hectares) has diverse species of trees, with heaths and meadows that nicely cover the land of diverse colours (brown, red ochre, yellow ochre). You'll have the impression that you're on the set of Little House on the Prairie! The farmhouse to restore is partly build of stone and brick. The front door opens onto the kitchen. It is equipped with semi-professional material (dishwasher, ILVE cooker with 4 gas hobs and a plancha, wood-burning stove with a flue). To the left is a small room and a shower-room. The pipes could be connected to the solar panels already installed in order to have hot water supplied by this system. Upstairs, there are 4 bedrooms, a big living room (about 55 m², two levels and an insert), a bathroom and other rooms, as well as adjoining outbuildings with lots of space, so they could be converted to your liking. This farmhouse has many possibilities for renovating and transforming. You can give free rein to your imagination and create your dream home. Outside, there is an adjoining workshop and a well nearby. In front of the workshop is a 200 m² barn that you could also be converted. The property also has a spring and a reservoir. The selling price includes all the tools and big machines of the property, as well as two small chalets (10 m² & 20 m²). Horse riding in the summer and boar hunting in the autumn are enjoyed on the property. The village of Rennes-le-Château, near Mont Pech Bugarach, is known throughout the world, in particular for the priest Bérenger Saunière and the storey of his mysterious treasure. Made famous also by the best seller and blockbuster The Da Vinci Code, this small town is highly respected in the region of Cathares.
