Stunning character property! Located directly on the Canigou massif 800m above sea level you'll find the quaint village of Corsavy.
This Maison de Maître has a huge terrace offering glorious views of the estate grounds, mountains, valleys, and on a clear day, one can see all the way to the Mediterranean sea.
The city of Perpignan, 45km, offers an international airport and train station with TGV links. Other amenities are found in Arles sur Tech (7km) and Ceret (20km). Mediterranean beaches are within 45km.
This grand property offers endless possibilities. It can be used as a large family residence, holiday rental, and the beautiful views and skies make it the perfect place to host artists workshops and/or retreats.
With some work it could even be made into a chambre d'hotes.
Easy access to trails (the refuge Batère 1470 where the GR 10 hiking trail leads to the Canigou; 2,785 m refuge Cortalets) make it a hikers paradise. Its semi-remote location allows for complete relaxation within a reasonable distance to necessary amenities.
One enters this impressive home through a stunning tile entryway done in a traditional Catalan-style.
On the ground floor, you will find a large eat-in kitchen equipped with a cooking island and a fireplace. There are two salons and a loggia with many doors leading to the large terrace overlooking the estate. A fireplace with insert allows for wood heating. This floor also offers a large bedroom equipped with a fireplace, Italian shower and dedicated laundry area.
Slightly hidden behind the kitchen and the first salon is a storage area with a beautiful iron staircase that leads to the 1st floor where there are 8 nice-sized and luminous bedrooms.
All bedrooms retain the original exposed-beam ceilings and floors in both hardwood and tiled terracotta. The windows and shutters have been replaced but the beautiful “espagnolettes” (window locking devices) remain, in fact, these are seen throughout the property.
Also found on this floor at each side of the long hallway are two bathrooms; one is a large with tub, shower and WC and the other has a shower and WC.
There is an enormous attic, accessed by a large hatch from the landing and extends over the entire right side of the home. It offers great height and is suitable for conversion.
The grounds of this home are a site to see! The large rear terrace with gazebo overlook the village and the valley. It’s an ideal spot for dining, meditating or painting the magnificent view extending to the sea.The terrace can be completely closed to serve as a playground for children.
A beautiful staircase with wrought iron banisters descends into a small garden shaded by an abundant wisteria. Walk through a stunning stone arch with iron gate under the terrace and you’ll find another large garden (1850m2) with fruit trees and a mosaic–tiled pool with heat pump (50m2, filled by water source). The pool water overflows to a small kiddie pool. There is also a cabana.
Under the property are cellars, some of which are vaulted and they open onto the patio and run the entire surface of the house. A bergerie with independent entrance can serve as the garage.
