Pyrénées-Orientales Property For SaleVERNET-LES-BAINS

BRIGHT, traditional detached house boasting two apartments and breathtaking mountain views. VERNET-LES-BAINS, Pyrénées-Orientales (66)

This traditional, detached house boasts two separate apartments in immaculate condition and commands breathtaking views across the snow-capped Pyrénées.

Situated on the upper levels of the famous spa town of Vernet-les-Bains, yet local shops, cafés and restaurants are only a stroll away down the hill. The neighbouring fortified city of Villefranche-de-Conflent and the town of Prades of Pablo Casals' fame are just 10 and 15 minutes away by car respectively. One can be skiing in the traditional resort of Font Romeu within 45 mins or basking in the mediterranean at Canet Plage in just under an hour. You can drive to Perpignan airport in around 60 mins.

Approx 80m² living space on a neatly paved plot approx 470m², with 5 rooms in total.

The property consists of two apartments: the first floor apartment (approx 50m²) boasts light and airy entrance hall, sunny west-facing lounge/dining room with French doors opening onto balcony offering panoramic mountains views, separate, smart fully-fitted kitchen comprising electric fan oven, ceramic hob and fan over, washing machine and generous fridge/freezer, 2 bedrooms - one with built-in furniture and dual aspect windows offering mountain views, the other with built-in wardrobe, smart shower room and separate WC with integral wash-hand basin.

Property features include its dominant position overlooking town and mountains giving rise to amazing views. A bright outlook with west-facing balcony ideal for those evening apéritifs and 2 good-sized, rear south-east facing terraces on two levels together with ornate, working fountain and unique west-facing, pine unit - ideal for storage in winter yet opens fully in fine weather to reveal your very own summer kitchen with stunning mountain views. Quality fixtures & fittings inside and out. Great attention to detail. Satellite TV. Efficient, remote-controlled ceiling fans. Traditional wooden shutters. Typical high ceilings and large windows which make this property very light and airy. Attractive, part-stonework façade using local stone.

Fully refurbished over the past 7 years and maintained to a very high standard by the current owners so that all you have to do is to unpack the suitcase. Ideal holiday home or main property; using the second apartment to perhaps pursue a hobby, set up a business from home or simply offer friends & family the privacy of their very own place to stay. Equally, one or both apartments could be used for commercial rental. This property offers endless possibilities.
