This 17th century Catalan Mas is in a mountain location in the Vallespir, Languedoc-Roussillon, Occitanie region of the South of France. The property gives a real sense of privacy and isolation and is wonderful for nature lovers, but is only a few kilometres of easy road from the nearest town. The land around the mas is open and sunny, surrounded by prairie, forest and mountains with a pool, tennis court, and trout pond. More than 3kms of track allow you to circulate around your land, winding up the mountainside to an old stone sheepfold of c 60m² and further prairies. This land is a paradise, served by several springs, ideal for horses or other animals. The main house is divided currently into two apartments, one on each floor and a large stone outbuilding houses the garage, workshop and further accommodation, currently an en-suite bedroom, but potentially a small studio. The house could be left as two apartments to provide gîte income, or remodelled into a large family home or B&B.Description of the Building

The mas, found in ruins by the current owner, was restored and renovated 40 years ago and is immediately habitable, but would require some updating and possible remodelling to suit a new project. There are some very nice features, exposed wooden beams, marble floor tiles in the ground floor living area, picture windows, stone walls and Mediterranean style roof tiles, some wooden floorboards, laminateand lino.
There are 5 reversible air-conditioning units and three fireplaces with inserts, mains electricity, water heated by electricity and solar panels, windows and doors are a mixture of wood single glazing and aluminium double glazing. Water is supplied by springs and is filtered.
An outstanding location, boasting mountains, forest, prairie and several natural springs, a real heaven on earth and must be experienced to be truly appreciated. The farmhouse could be an amazing family home or guest accommodation and the property has the potential to be a wonderful animal or nature-themed commercial project.
