A chateau and its numerous outbuildings, including a wine storehouse and stables, where the borders of the French departments of Yonne, Loiret and Nièvre meet. The property stands in a village near to Saint-Fargeau and Guédelon. The nearest train station is in Briare, 15 minutes away from the estate. It has links to Paris-Bercy. All amenities are to be found in the surrounding villages, just a few minutes from the property. This estate is in a verdant commune, dotted with clearings and criss-crossed by pathways.
The family that marked the history of this estate is without any doubt the De-Lestrade family who lived on the property from 1821 until 1909. It was this family that changed the chateau’s architecture.
Wrought iron gates with gold-leaf points mark the entrance to this estate. Further away, two limestone towers covered with glazed roof tiles flank the entrance to the chateau. Each tower has its own weather vane. The roofs with their coloured tiles have been completely renovated. Both pavilions feature double, small-paned windows. Small openings in the top of the towers resemble round loop-holes. The quoins on these pavilions are made of limestone and a moulded string course goes around their facades. The entrance doors feature a semi-circular stone arch with a through voussoir. Both buildings are bordered by a low wall. Beyond the pavilions, a large paved courtyard is laid out in front of the main residence. It is partially enclosed by a balustrade. A low wall, the base, replaces the balusters at regular intervals. The chateau itself is divided into three sections. It is flanked by two pavilions. An impressive central building was built in the 19th century by Count-de-Lestrade. A porch with several steps leads to double wooden doors, featuring coloured stained glass windows, that mark the main entrance. The opening is adorned on either side with scrolls. On the first floor are two matching openings with baluster railings. A moulded frieze runs along the facade. It is topped with a coat-of-arms belonging to the Marquis-de-Lestrade which represents a fess with 3 stars and 5 branches, symbol of human destiny and a border flanked by three ermine flecks which evokes innocence and grandeur. Two lions have been placed on either side of the coat-of-arms to symbolise strength and courage. It is topped with a Marquis’ crown, showing Georges-de-Lestrade’s social status.
The base level of the chateau has basement windows. The two pavilions on either side of the central building feature attic roof dormers. Several oblong bull’s eye windows adorn the attic level.
This property is ideally located for those who love nature, horses, wine and hunting. The chateau itself is in an excellent state of repair and of a reasonable size. Lying dormant, it is but waiting for someone to revive it. A family, for example, could move in without having to carry out any works. The outbuildings are numerous and make it possible to envisage several financial projects such as renting the stables, creating a bed & breakfast activity or even producing wine, especially as the chateau also owns vines a little way away in the French department of Loiret. And lastly, it is the perfect spot for hunting as it is possible to receive numerous hunters, contemplate the hunting plan and then put on a feast.
