Lovely Townhouse

Prades, France

Property Description

Centrally located in the heart of the pretty historic town of Prades, this lovely townhouse is a rare find.

Tucked away down a private drive in the bustling market town of Prades, this delightful 1940s property has a quiet grandeur about it. The gated driveway and setting of the property provides quiet and a surprising sense of seclusion.

The house has been tastefully redecorated and the outside repainted last summer. The ground floor is made up of an entrance hall with a walk-in closet, living room and kitchen diner; with a central granite staircase leading to the top of the house. The living room is a calming space with newly fitted oak wood flooring and a wood burner. The fully equipped kitchen is modern (installed 4 years ago) and the space maintains the property's charm with a beautiful central window and original Catalan tile floor. It has a walk-in store/utilities room and leading on from this is a large storage space with shelving.

Both upper floors each offer 2 double bedrooms plus shower rooms, with original wood flooring and double doors with Juliet balconies giving beautiful views of the Canigou. The property has gas central heating with radiators in all rooms and a newly installed boiler.

In addition the property has a large adjoining annex (80m2), recently developed with double glazing and heating/AC. Currently used as a painting studio this could lend itself superbly to a practitioner's space, an office, workshop, playroom.

The pretty garden has a cherry tree, rose varieties and herbs. There is a small yet charming terrace area with metal pergola next to the house. The garden also benefits from an unlimited water supply for 6 months of the year (for a nominal annual fee) and has two small covered areas for tools and wood. There is space to park two cars on the drive and additionally there is ample free parking nearby.

Prades is a bustling market town nestled at the foothills of the impressive Canigou.
