Grand and spacious 6 bedroom stone built farmhouse, plus 2 gites, superb views, swimming pool and 2.9 hectares of land, ideally situated in a quiet setting, yet just a short drive from amenities in Perpignan.
This beautifully renovated, south facing 17th Century Catalan mas, is situated within a highly sought-after elevated position in the Pyrenees-Orientales, with stunning views overlooking a pretty valley, the Plain of Roussillon, mountains and the Mediterranean in the distance, all of which help to give the feeling of being away from it all in the countryside, but just a 5 minute drive from a bustling market town, with its schools, shops and services.
The main living quarters on one side of the building and a large gite on the other, sandwich the central area of the building with a magnificent great entrance hall worthy of medieval banquets on the ground floor and a large room on the first floor which can be used for theme retreats, yoga, art displays or whatever project in mind. The flexibility of the accommodation means that it is possible by closing one door to create a second gite for an additional rental income.
This suburb example of a Catalan Mas, which has been renovated with taste using high quality materials, and has a unique layout. Wooden beams and locally made floor tiles pay respect to the authenticity of this historic building. It is immediately habitable and possible to plan a first season and launch a gite business straight away. Or to welcome family to visit, because there is enough accommodation for everyone.
This property is unique on the market currently in the region in that it gives all the feeling of living on a farmstead in the countryside, but is so close to all amenities and social activities.

A drive leads up to the house and there is space to park several cars. The land around the house is divided roughly equally between a prairie and oak forest, with an established almond grove bursting into magnificent blossom each spring. There is plenty of flat prairie land, with apple, apricot, cherry and fig trees, a vegetable garden, chicken coop and a workshop. It is a perfect garden for a large family and has the potential for keeping a few animals.
At the top of the garden a gate leads to a private oak forest which easily provides enough wood for heating the house during the winter months.
On the south side of the house there is a flat lawn and on the other 3 sides various terraces for finding the right degree of sun or shade. Some of the paving has been artistically done by hand and there is an old bread oven outside the house.
The house is in very good condition, renovated with very high quality materials, respecting the origins of the house, chosen with the environment in mind and keeping original features wherever possible.
Newer windows and doors in most of the property are double-glazed and the original wooden windows in the living quarters are single glazed. Most of the house is heated by wood or wood central heating with some electric. The hot water is provided by solar energy with electric back up. 8 new solar panels feed directly into the electrical system to reduce electricity costs. Town water supply and septic tank for waste water.
A mountain property, but with easy access and relatively flat land surrounding it. The feeling of zones in the garden makes one feel that there is much more land attached than there is. There is access to numerous hiking and mountain paths from the gate.
This is a rare property that needs to be seen to be fully appreciated.
