A Louis XIII chateau and its water-filled moats, converted into 7 fully renovated flats,
ranging from 38 to 165 m², less than an hour from Paris

Location

Set in wooded surroundings, the chateau stands proudly in a little town, with infant and junior schools, 60 km from Paris via the A6 motorway, on the edge of the Fontainebleau and Trois-Pignons forests, near to Milly-la-Forêt, 10 minutes from three RER train stations with links to the French capital and 45 minutes from Orly international airport.

Description

A feudal fortress stood on the site in the Middle-Ages and the polygonal layout of the water-filled moats most certainly dates from this era. The chateau was rebuilt in the 17th century. Parisians will immediately recognise the Louis XIII style from the Place-des-Vosges, reflected in the use of stone and brick as construction materials, in its red and white colours and in its steeply sloping slate roofs.
Resembling small wings, two pavilions are set at right angles on either side of the central building. The building spans three levels, one of which consists of high-roofed attic space. Copious amounts of light flood into the first two levels via large, closely spaced windows. Similarly arranged shed dormers, as well as skylights set in the roof of the central building, illuminate the attic space. A veranda has recently been added to the south side, bordering the moat. Extending the ground floor the full length of the facade, it has created a vast terrace on the first floor.
Although still wooded, the chateau’s historic estate has now become residential. A horse-riding centre has set up home in the old outbuildings. The main entrance to the chateau takes the form of a bridge, spanning the moat and featuring balusters as well as security gates. A designated area has been partially gravelled for the parking of cars to the east of the building.
A rear walkway, with balusters, makes it possible to cross the moat on foot directly in front of the veranda and follow a forest path running alongside the water to the nearby river.
The inside of the chateau has been converted into seven flats which are laid out around a wide Louis XIII style wooden stairway, with terracotta tile steps and herringbone pattern parquet flooring on the landings.

The first flat on the ground floor

This through flat is reached via the main entrance hall. A corridor leads, right, to a room designated as a living room, fitted with kitchen units, left, to a bedroom and, straight on, to a shower room with a toilet.
The extremely bright, south-facing living room is laid out in the chateau’s veranda. The kitchen units are aligned, leaving space in front of the large windows, fitted with electric shutters. The bedroom features a small built-in alcove which has been converted into a cupboard.
This flat, sold separately, is priced at €180,000.

The second flat on the ground floor

This triple aspect flat is reached via the front of the chateau. An entrance hall provides access, on one side, to a first bedroom communicating with a corridor and a private shower room with a toilet. On the other side is a large lounge, the ceiling of which features the chateau’s original robust beams. It is illuminated not only directly via two facade windows, but also indirectly via the dining room. The latter, laid out in the chateau’s veranda together with the kitchen, is steeped in light pouring in through the wide windows, fitted with electric shutters, that run the full width of the room. The kitchen, with its aligned units, has a door leading out into the private garden. And lastly, a second bedroom, with its own bathroom and toilet, could be completed as necessary with a third bedroom by taking some of the floor surface area of the dining room. The entrance hall also provides access to a guest toilet.
This flat, sold separately with its private 560 m² garden, is priced at €555,000.

The third flat on the ground floor

This flat is accessed via the chateau’s entrance hall. Its lobby provides access, on one side, to a first bedroom and, on the other to a shower room with a toilet. Straight on, the lounge is illuminated not only directly via two facade windows, but also indirectly via a window between it and the dining room. The latter is laid out in the chateau’s veranda and extended by a kitchen. Both are extremely bright and fitted with electric shutters. The kitchen, with its aligned units, also has a door leading out into the private garden and providing access to the flat’s outbuildings. The second and third bedrooms both have their own shower rooms, with toilets, as well as fitted cupboards.
This flat comes with outbuildings that include a garage, a cellar and a separate room, looking out over the moat, as well as a private, 470 m² garden.
This flat, sold separately, is priced at €625,000.

The first flat on the first floor

This flat, laid out on the first floor, can be reached via the chateau’s Louis XIII style stairway. A lobby provides access to a through lounge, illuminated via four large windows and including an open-plan kitchen, as well as to a first bedroom. A corridor leads to a shower room, with a toilet, and to two more bedrooms, with their own shower rooms and fitted cupboards. Although facing different directions, both these bedrooms are connected via a balcony with wrought iron railings.
The lounge opens on to a large, 65 m², private terrace with a wide view, taking in the esplanade beyond the moat as well as the surrounding woods.
This flat, sold separately, is priced at €445,000.

The second flat on the first floor

This flat, with its refined layout, can be reached via the chateau’s Louis XIII style stairway. A vast living room includes an open-plan kitchen area. A corridor provides access to two bedrooms, each with its own shower room and toilet, as well as to a separate toilet.
A 65 m² private terrace has a dominant view of the esplanade beyond the moat and the surrounding woods. It can be reached via the living room as well as via the bedroom corridor.
This flat, sold separately, is priced at €415,000.

The first flat on the second floor

The front door opens directly into a vast lounge, illuminated via five windows. This room includes an open-plan kitchen area. A corridor leads to two bedrooms, each with their own fitted cupboards and bath or shower room, as well as to a toilet. Both bedrooms look out two facades via two separate windows.
A mezzanine level in the lounge has made it possible to create a study, a bedroom and a shower room. All with sloping ceilings, they are illuminated via skylights. These bright, original and comfortable rooms have been meticulously converted under the rafters.
This flat, sold separately, is priced at €430,000.

The second flat on the second floor

The front door opens directly into a vast lounge, illuminated via five windows. This room includes an open-plan kitchen area. A corridor leads to two bedrooms, each with their own fitted cupboards and bath or shower room, as well as to a toilet. Both bedrooms look out two facades via a window and a balistraria.
A mezzanine level in the lounge comprises a study, a bedroom and a bathroom. All with sloping ceilings, they are illuminated via skylights. These original, comfortable rooms, meticulously converted under the rafters, are filled with copious amounts of light.

The parklands

The parklands are composed of an esplanade, within the moat, by way of a main courtyard, part of which is gravelled so that cars can be parked. A wooded section, spanning two hectares and adjoining, on the other side of the moat, can be additionally purchased.

Our opinion

In the past, large chateaux were composed of separate sets of rooms, or flats, where members of the court, family and relations lived all year round or during the holidays. This is then but a contemporary version. The purchase of a chateau comprising flats which are ready for immediate rent, on a yearly basis or just for short periods, in this region abounding in tourist attractions, is an extremely stylish investment. It would also be possible to live here and accommodate friends, with no lack of privacy, and all just an hour from Paris.
