The farmhouse is nicely situated on a plateau in the middle of 139 hectares of contiguous land; below and above the mas the land is sloping. Around the buildings are about 3 hectares enclosed with a wire fence so that dogs cant escape. There is a herb garden, an orchard (cherry, apricot, plum, pear, apple, olive, fig, walnut) prairie and meadows. There is a tarmac access road up to the gate and is easy to drive. About 40 hectares are scrubland and the remaining 100 hectares are woods. The woods consist of about 70% chestnut trees and 30% oak trees. The wood is cut to sustain the fireplaces and wood burner accessed by walking paths. The flora is Mediterranean plants such as broom, lavender, cistes, wild asparagus, wild rose etc. One can find as well cepes, morels and sometimes even truffles. The size of the grounds would allow private hunting. Today an association hunts on the property, mainly wild boars but as well roe-deer, hares, wood pigeons, woodcocks etc. Lovely birds can be observed such as cuckoo, owl, woodpecker, thrush, various tits, blackbird, robin, buzzard, eagles, partridge etc.
When the actual owner bought the property it had been abandoned and the buildings were all in wrecks. The renovation project of the main buildings has been planned by an architect and works have been carried out between 2008 and 2010.
There are several fireplaces, a wood burner and in some rooms there is under floor heating (large lounge and 4 bedrooms). Some bedrooms have no heating today, but they all have electric sockets. Double glazed windows, wooden shutters in most places. Depending on the project and use of the property, it might be useful to install proper central heating in all rooms. DPE non applicable.
Energy production by solar photovoltaic panels, stored by an army of batteries - as well with a generator fed by fuel. Water is provided by a borehole and a UV-treatment, several tanks - 70m3 tanks for rain water collection. Watering system for the herb garden.
This exclusive property could be just a holiday home or primary residence for a large family. There are as well many possibilities to establish a business such as Boutique Hotel, Retreats, B&B etc. or on the farming side with the forest, game etc. It is impossible to do justice of the exceptional views with the pictures and description.
