Description

A long alleyway leads to this property which comprises an 18th century, Provencal Mas house, a guest house and an unusual dwelling perched in a tree. These buildings stand in grounds spanning a little less than two hectares of farmland and woods, ideally bordered by a first category stream.

The 18th century, Provencal Mas house

This traditional, stone Mas house spans various levels; the main building having three floors. The slopes of the roof are covered with Roman tiles. Lavender blue shutters adorn the facades, creating the impression that it is straight out of a painting by Cézanne.


Ground floor
The front door opens into a vestibule which houses a cloakroom and a stone stairway leading upstairs. It provides access to a superb room, enhanced by an outstanding stone fireplace. A library separates it from the adjoining artist’s studio. The vestibule continues to an exhibition room which faces the lounge. The spacious exhibition room features exposed stone walls and a barrel vaulted ceiling. Opposite, the lounge opens widely on to a terrace and the garden via a succession of openings. This long luminous room, of varying levels, stretches out under a sloping roof, with exposed beams. The kitchen, at the end of the vestibule, adjoins a pantry. A room for rest and relaxation, with a spa bath and a toilet, completes this section of the ground floor. A suite, laid out independently, comprises a bedroom, a bathroom and a toilet. It is reached from the outside via a small, covered, private terrace.
Behind this traditional Mas house are a cellar and a boiler room as well as a garage and a carport.

First floor
The first floor is reached via the stone stairway. It includes two bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. A third, bigger bedroom has been transformed into a lounge and its bathroom into a kitchen. This level forms a self-contained flat but could easily be turned back into a floor comprising three bedrooms.
An external stone stairway goes up to a covered terrace, on to which opens a studio flat comprising a large room, a bathroom, a toilet and a small kitchen.

Second floor
The stairway continues up to the second floor of the main building. Just like the previous level, this floor has been converted into a flat which comprises a lounge, enhanced with a stone fireplace, a kitchen and two large bedrooms, each with its own bathroom and toilet.

The guest house and the swimming pool

This guest house stands at a distance from the main residence. Its privacy is protected by the surrounding lush vegetation. It comprises two bedrooms on the ground floor with two shower rooms. The lounge is spacious and a kitchen is laid out along one wall. It opens on to a terrace facing the swimming pool. Upstairs, a bedroom under the sloping roof has its own shower room. The garden is laid out around the 8x4 m swimming pool. Once again, vegetation keeps it out of sight of onlookers.

The unusual dwelling in the garden

One hundred year old trees are dotted around the traditional Mas house, forming a delightful setting. An unusual dwelling has been constructed in one of them; great care having been taken not to damage the tree. A spiral, wooden stairway goes up to a terrace on to which opens a warm, cosy bedroom. It has a wonderful view of the hilltop village.
The stream, classified as first category for fishing, flows peacefully along the property boundary. It also makes a natural, verdant place to go for a dip.

Our opinion

Provence and water. Extensive sunlight, olive trees, lavender, cicada and the stream, which widens before cascading in a waterfall, are some of its many assets. This traditional Mas house could be divided up as well as being just a large, comfortable home. The guest house is concealed by vegetation. The wooden chalet up in a tree is an added bonus that will appeal to some. When swimming, there is a choice between the pool and the stream. This little haven would, therefore, lend itself to many pleasant lifestyle projects.
