part of which is building land, 30 km from Paris in the French department of Seine-et-Marne
, SEINE-ET-MARNE ile-de-france FR

Location

This chateau, 30 km from Paris and 4 km de Brie-Comte-Robert, the historic capital of the Brie-Française region, is in a little, still authentic commune in the Ile-de-France region, with shops and amenities within walking distance. It can be reached via the Francilienne ring road, the N104 or even the N19.

Description

This estate is accessed via double gates, flanked by two, almost symmetrical pavilions. These gates open into the chateau’s main courtyard, featuring a central fountain. A vast, sandy driveway leads to the 3-storey building, standing in almost 7 hectares of parklands, 3,000 m² of which is building land. The sober appearance of the chateau, with its understated facade and its slate roof, bestows the property with a discreet elegance, enhanced by the brick facing on the corner tower. The parklands stretch out to the rear, creating different successive atmospheres, with a wooded section, an orchard, an old vegetable garden, a lake fed by three springs and an islet linked to the bank by a bridge, offering a variety of interests.
Farm buildings with a 15th century dovecote, a garage, a workshop and a large woodshed are laid out around a second courtyard, behind the chateau. All the roofs are covered with old flat tiles. Beyond the courtyard, separated by a low stone wall, is a meadow, spanning approx. 3,000 m², which is actually building land, and a tennis court.

The chateau

This chateau spans three levels, not counting the cellars, dating in part from the 13th century. The building is flanked by a protruding left wing set at right-angles and by a square tower, the upper section of which is faced with alternate rows of red and yellow bricks which match the chimney stacks set on its roof. The classical stone facade features butter yellow rusticated masonry framing which pleasantly contrasts with the white walls. The doors and windows on the first two levels are crowned with lintels and fitted with external slatted wooden shutters. The Mansard slate roof features four triangular pediment roof dormers on the main building and a bull’s eye roof dormer on the west tower.


Ground floor
An entrance hall with floor tiles, featuring inlaid decoration, can be reached from the main courtyard and from the parklands side via two doors that face one another. It opens into a corridor that provides access to a vast, extremely bright, double living room with oak wood parquet flooring. This room is big enough to currently house a lounge area and a billiards’ room area. The corridor also leads to a library, with parquet flooring, a study, with a fireplace and square terracotta floor tiles, a very spacious kitchen with its everyday eating area and, lastly, a toilet.
First floor
The stairway goes up to a landing which is extended by two corridors. The one on the right-hand side leads to independent suites, each comprising two bedrooms, as well as a large dressing room, a shower room, with two marble wash-hand basins and a toilet.
The left-hand corridor leads to a vast, master bedroom, illuminated via three large windows. It adjoins a large dressing room, a bathroom, with two wash-hand basins, a shower and a toilet. This level has parquet flooring through except for the bathrooms.

Second floor
This floor, in need of some attention, comprises a large, extremely bright room, with parquet flooring, and two other bedrooms (awaiting renovation), each with their own bathroom, a dressing room big enough to be converted into a bedroom, if required, an artist’s studio and a music room.

The two entrance pavilions

Both pavilions are faced with stone and their slate roofs, enhanced with bull’s eye roof dormers.
The first pavilion is a former caretaker’s cottage which spans two levels, excluding the vaulted cellar. It comprises a kitchen, a living room, with terracotta floor tiles and a fireplace, as well as a toilet on the ground floor. Upstairs are 4 bedrooms and a bathroom. A gas-fired boiler runs the heating.
The second pavilion is a former hunting lodge. The ground floor comprises a large kitchen, a living room, with parquet flooring, and a large, adjoining room (the old hunting hall). Upstairs are a master bedroom, with a bathroom and toilet, as well as two other bedrooms.
Once again, a gas-fired boiler runs the heating.
Both these pavilions are currently lived in.

The outbuildings

The farm buildings behind the chateau are set out around a square courtyard and comprise three sections. The first, 2-storey section includes a garage, a fruit store and an attic. The second section is a large, covered woodshed and the third a 15th century dovecote, a tower engaged in the two preceding buildings.

Our opinion

The aesthetics of the 19th century are perfectly represented here through its elegance and its soberness, whilst the slate Mansard roof is a reminder that this property is right on the outskirts of Paris; a geographical situation where the possibilities of acquiring an estate are few and far between. The many assets of this one include a chateau and its farm buildings, habitable outbuildings and building land in the centre of a town. With almost 7 hectares of land in the midst of the French department of Seine-et-Marne, the countryside is already in the town. And, as if that was not enough, the Chemin-des-Roses, a pathway reserved for cyclists and pedestrians using a portion of the old Vincennes railway line linking Bastille station in Paris to Verneuil-l’Etang, crosses the nearby town of Brie-Comte-Robert.
