located 50 km from Paris
50 km from the capital, 12 km from Melun, 5 km from the A5 motorway and 6 km from the Vaux-le-Vicomte castle.
The farmhouse is located in a small authentic hamlet with local shops just 2 km away.
Two double gates almost face each other. One opening on to the street, the second on to a prolonged stretch of grass surrounded by neighbouring unfenced fields. The building itself is long and comprises one building in the centre that is ready to be lived in. The central building is attached on both sides by two old houses to be renovated. Perpendicular to the property, there is a former dairy, difficult to access. On the road side there is a barn, and on the other side of the property, there is a stable and former cowshed.
At a right angle, there is a former dovecote followed by a gate.
In the clay-covered courtyard, where nature has reclaimed its rights, there is an old water well.
Behind the house, there is an English style courtyard to facilitate water run-off. Followed by a small orchard with its cherry, walnut and quince trees.
The property is surprising and reveals two different construction periods side by side. The farm construction predates the French Revolution and is preserved; the central part of the building was redesigned in 20th century.
The old farmhouse part surrounding this house, has remained untouched with millstone facades and local flat tiles used for the roof.
- Main central living quarters:
The only part of the property that has been refurbished and ready to be lived in.
The house has been divided into two furnished homes, each are rental properties for two people, accommodating four people in total.
- The old house awaits renovation;
- The milk house (outbuilding);
A flat comprising a living room with marble floor tiles, ceiling with exposed beams and joists, an open kitchen, a toilet and a shower room, and two bedrooms. A boiler room.
The first floor of the main building comprises a living room that opens out on to a terrace. Two bedrooms, a bathroom and a toilet.
The old house span two levels and has remained as it was. Today it is attached to the new house, making it just one housing unit. It could be renovated as it stands, in fact, the two attics still communicate. This part of the property has been untouched and awaits renovation: there are some lovely original features.
One main room with old terracotta tiles in poor condition. The ceiling has exposed beams and joists.
It features a fireplace and a beautiful stone sink.
Not visited since access is impossible.
The milk house adjoins the old house. Sandstone floor.
Upstairs, bedroom for the cowman.
Spacious, it could easily be converted.
There is a legend that says that some underground passages lead to the neighbouring castle.
Ceiling with exposed beams and joists. They feature some arrow slits.
Upper level, hay loft.
To be converted. Hay loft on the upper level.
Ideal for an investment. One of the four flats is kept as a pied à terre by the owner and could be let out.
The farm is currently lived in as it is, however full use has yet to be made of its potential.
Renovation works could easily make the old house habitable.
The barn could be quickly converted, and the other outbuildings await renovation too to come back to life.
This property has several qualities, one of them being its proximity to the capital.
