A chateau and its numerous outbuildings, including a wine storehouse and stables, stand in a village near to Saint-Fargeau and Guédelon, where the borders of the French departments of Yonne, Loiret and Nièvre meet.
The nearest train station, with links to Paris-Bercy, is 15 minutes away from the estate in Briare. All daily amenities are to be found in the surrounding villages, just a few minutes from the property.
This estate is set in a commune, which is a large verdant area, dotted with clearings and criss-crossed with pathways for getting about.
The family that marked the history of this estate is without any doubt the De-Lestrade family who remained on the property from 1821 until 1909 and who was responsible for several architectural changes.
Entrance to the estate is provided by wrought iron gates with gold-leaf points. Two white limestone pavilions, each adorned with a round tower featuring a circular string course of glazed tiles, set the tone. Each tower has its own weather vane.
The roofs, with their coloured tiles, were entirely renovated by one of the chateau’s residents. 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 runs along their facades. The entrance doors feature a semi-circular stone arch with a through voussoir. Both buildings are bordered by a low wall. In front of the pavilions, a large paved courtyard, laid out facing the main residence, is partially enclosed by a balustrade. The balusters are replaced at regular intervals by a low wall, the base.
The chateau itself is divided into three sections. It is flanked by two pavilions, on the right and left-hand sides, and a large building was built in the centre in the 19th century by Count-de-Lestrade. The main entrance consists of a porch with several steps leading to double wooden doors, featuring stained glass windows. The opening is adorned on either side with scrolls. On the first floor are two matching openings, with baluster railings and a moulded frieze running 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. A family could move in without having to carry out any works. The outbuildings are numerous and large financial projects could be envisaged such as renting the stable which houses numerous horse loose boxes, the outbuildings are in an excellent state of repair and new owners could easily conduct a bed & breakfast activity and then there is something which is quite rare, a practically new wine storehouse with all the equipment required for producing wine in an AOC region. The chateau also owns vines a little way away in the French department of Loiret. And lastly, it is the perfect spot for hunting where it is easily possible to receive hunters and put on a feast.
