The Alpilles region, with majestic rock formations and charming towns and villages, is among the most popular in Provence. Here you’ll enjoy visiting St-Rémy de Provence, a quintessential Provençal town with a historic town center and full range of shops, restaurants, cafés and a lively open-air market. Nearby is Eygalières, a charming village with excellent bakers, small grocers, cafés, restaurants and Friday market.
Within pleasant walking distance of the village of Eygalières, this traditionally-designed mas is set in a magnificent park of 2.5 acres. The park features expansive lawns, beautifully landscaped beds with native plants and flowering shrubs and a variety of trees including pines, cypress, mulberries, oaks and olives. Adjacent to the house are open and covered terraces with teak dining and lounging furniture. Set away from the house is a large swimming pool with stone terrace. Beyond the pool is a hard-surface tennis court. And there is a boules court and table tennis. With so many recreational options and the Alpilles in the distance, you may find it hard to pull yourself away from this private paradise.
Built with authentic materials, the mas boasts massive wood-beamed ceilings, travertine and antique tommette tile floors and exposed stone door and window features. Complementing the classic Provençal architectural are stylish contemporary and antique furnishings, designer fabrics, the highest quality fixtures and appliances and all modern conveniences including central air conditioning and wireless internet access.
To the right of the entry is a lovely living room with French doors opening to the park. This is a very comfortable room with two large upholstered sofas and two easy chairs grouped around a glass-topped wood coffee table by the stone fireplace. Occasional tables, lamps and antique copper pieces are warm accents. A doorway leads to a den-game room with additional seating and a large flat-screen television with satellite service. Doors from this room open to a large covered terrace and summer salon.
To the left of the entry is the spacious French country kitchen with heavy wood-beamed cathedral ceiling and French doors to the terraces and grounds. A fabulous kitchen for cooks of all levels, it features top-of-the-line appliances including a professional-level stainless steel stove with two ovens and 6-burner gas cook top. There is a full complement of kitchen equipment, utensils, dishes and glasses. Long granite counters provide ample preparation space. A granite-topped island separates the kitchen from a casual seating area and the dining area with rectangular wood farm table and chairs.
There are a total of 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. The bedrooms feature antique tommette mosaic tile floors and are beautifully decorated with lovely bedcovers, curtains, fine linens, antique pieces and ample wardrobe space. The bathrooms feature fine designer fixtures and travertine tilework. On the ground level to the right of the entry is a bedroom with twin beds and French door opening to the grounds. Adjacent on the hall is a full bathroom with tub and rainhead-style shower, sink and toilet facilities. Also on the ground level off the den is another full bathroom with rainhead shower, sink and toilet.
A marble staircase from the entry leads to three more bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. From these bedrooms with wood-beamed ceilings, you’ll enjoy splendid views of the park and the Alpilles. One is a large master suite with “emperor” king bed, easy chairs and bathroom with separate tub, shower and double sinks. The other two bedrooms have king and twin beds respectively. They share a large bathroom on the hall including a tub with rainhead shower fixture, sink and toilet facilities. The fifth bedroom is an independent studio located between the pool and the tennis court. The studio features twin beds and a full bathroom with shower, sink and toilet.
