Mas de la Chevalerie is an extremely well-appointed property set in 27 hectares of land on the foothills of the Cevennes in Languedoc. It is set on a low plateau beneath the ruined Chateau de Fressac and surrounded by olive groves and vineyards.
This equestrian property has 325m2 of living space which comprises on the ground floor, a large south-east facing lounge with an open log fireplace, separate dining room leading out onto a terrace, a provençal style kitchen with sink and surfaces cut from local stone, the master bedroom with walk-in wardrobes and a bathroom with Jacuzzi and power shower. There is also a laundry, office/games room, large garage/workshop and saddler/tack room. On the first floor there are 2 large bedrooms with access to a roof terrace with panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and vineyards, and a further bathroom.
Outside the main property there is a 2 bedroom gite which generates a healthy seasonal rental income (but which could also be used as a staff cottage) and immediately off the main patio is a lovely 76m2 swimming pool.
A 200 metre driveway leads up to the main residence through landscaped grounds where there is abundant planting with well-tended hedging. At night, copious lighting around the property illuminates the copses with bridged streams, the surrounding oaks, silver birches, eucalyptus, willow, oleander and fruit trees.
Within the immediate grounds there is also a 5 box stable block, a 50m x 15m dressage school with judging pavilion, a 22m sand roundpen/arena, a 5 horse covered yard, a large gravelled car park, a fenced/hedged donkey paddock with field shelter and hay store, a link fenced chicken run, a large hay barn: (800 x 25k bales) and a small grange.
The property is a ‘must see’ for anybody with an equestrian interest who is looking to operate in one of the finest wine growing regions of the South of France.
