An elegant, middle-class, late 19th century residence and
its outbuildings in the centre of Fontainebleau
Fontainebleau, SEINE-ET-MARNE ile-de-france 77300 FR

Location

Less than an hour from Paris via the A6 motorway and 40 minutes by train (Gare-de-Lyon).
The imperial town of Fontainebleau and its palace are set in the midst of a very large forest estate, once the favourite hunting grounds of many French kings. The town is very well known to tourists courtesy of its palace and its gardens, the artist’s workshop-studios or “artists’ houses”, which are to be found in the local surroundings, as well as its many international equestrian events which take place at the “Grand Parquet”. It also has an Italian-style theatre, numerous shops and restaurants, all within easy walking distance as well as the nearby palace parklands.
This region and its famous rocks are much-appreciated by hikers and rock-climbing enthusiasts.

Description

This property is enclosed by walls. The main, square building, extended by a lower section, stands in the centre of the plot. Remote-controlled gates, flanked by two dressed stone pillars as well as two pedestrian gateways, open on to a courtyard, setting the house back off of a quiet, one-way street. On one side, a small house, followed by another slightly bigger; on the other side, a building used as a garage and a stable. A terrace running alongside the house looks down on to a garden.

The main house

This house dates from the late 19th century. Its stone facades, featuring numerous openings, are covered with off-white rendering and topped with a zinc roof. A porch, sheltered by an awning, entwined with wisteria, raises the ground floor by a few steps and provides access to the main entrance. Constructed over a cellar, it spans approx. 260 m² of living space over three levels.


Ground floor
Heavy, partially glazed double doors open into an entrance hall which also houses the stairway. The floor is covered with cement tiles, characteristic of constructions from this period. On one side, a door opens into a lounge-television room and, following on, a second entrance hall leads to a vast vaulted cellar, housing a laundry room, a boiler room and a wine cellar. Opposite, another glazed door opens into a spacious lounge, enhanced with a white stone fireplace. The floor is laid with herringbone pattern parquet flooring; the ceilings feature moulding. It opens into a dining room where a French window provides access to a terrace. An open-plan kitchen is fully fitted.
First floor
A landing gives access to a bedroom, with a bathroom, a toilet, a large suite, comprising a bedroom, a lounge-dressing room and a bathroom, with a shower and toilet, as well as a study.
Second floor
This landing leads to a toilet, a bathroom, with a shower, and three bedrooms.

The first annexe house

Its brick red facades are topped with a roof covered with slate. The ground floor comprises a lounge, a fully fitted kitchen, a shower room and a toilet. The first floor is taken up by a bedroom. It spans approx. 37 m² of living space.

The second annexe house

Under a terracotta tile roof, its stone walls are covered with off-white rendering. The ground floor includes a lounge, a fully fitted kitchen and a toilet. The first floor comprises a bedroom, with a ceiling featuring the roofing framework, a dressing room, a shower room and a toilet. It spans approx. 55 m² of living space.

The outbuilding

This building has red brick walls under a roof, covered with interlocking tiles. The ground floor is used as a garage and a stable, whilst the upstairs comprises several rooms, including an old tack room. It could be converted into a flat.

Our opinion

Its location in a quiet street in the centre of town is ideal.
This bright, spacious property was recently restored according to good trade practices, in keeping with its architecture and the style of its construction era. Both annexe houses, currently rented, provide an interesting income. It is rare for such properties in the centre of Fontainebleau to come on to the market. This one exudes a countrified feeling in the middle of the town.
