This superb 18th century Catalan mas is in a quiet and private location, overlooking the hills of the Vallespir, in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of the South of France. It is an outstanding example of a recent renovation of this type of local building. Using the highest quality of materials and acute attention to detail, the property has a feeling of freshness, but with deep respect to local techniques and traditional materials, with terracotta floor tiles throughout and solid wood doors, shutters and windows. The 9 ensuite bedrooms are laid out in a thoughtful way that allows the property to be used either as a luxury retreat for the family or as a commercial venture, with separate space for guests or staff. The ancient barn converted into a great hall could equally be used for parties, a yoga room, or meeting room for any type of themed activity. Outside there are two outbuildings that can be renovated for additional space for activities.Description of the Building The house offers 548m² over 3 floors Main part of the house: Ground floor: Access by external staircase to- Living Room 55m² open fireplace, dining Room 36m², fully fitted kitchen 25 m²- electric oven,& hob, solid wood cabinets and marble worktop, den 15m², cloakroom 2.5m² stone sink, bedroom 17m² with bathroom with shower and toilet 7m² Staircase from kitchen to- First floor: Landing 15m², bedroom 16m² with bathroom 6m², bath with overhead shower.
