in a little unspoilt hamlet in the Seine-et-Marne department
Less than 90 km from Paris, Porte-de-Bercy, a quick, easy journey via the A4 motorway to the La-Ferté-sous-Jouarre exit. This property stands in a little unspoilt hamlet, some 20 km from La-Ferté-sous-Jouarre, a small town highly sought-after by Parisians, with all shops and facilities. The forest is in the immediate vicinity.
Coulommiers and Château-Thierry train stations, some 20 km away, provide links to Gare-Paris-Est.
This house spans three levels over a partial, vaulted cellar. The building is constructed from limestone. The roof, covered with interlocking tiles, is in a good state of repair. The guttering is new.
A door opens into an entrance hall, its floor paved with stone from the Saint-Pierre-Aigle quarry. A laundry room, a toilet with a wash-hand basin. A kitchen, with exposed ceiling beams and joists, also has a stone floor. A wood-burning stove. Two steps lead to a vast living room, where lounge and dining room areas communicate. The very bright, through dining room has a double-glazed French window on the garden side. A stone fireplace constitutes a central feature of the lounge, a vast room housing the stairway.
The stairway goes up to a first-floor landing with a toilet. A window lets in copious amounts of light. The main bedroom, with its own tiled bathroom, has parquet flooring and painted joists. A second bedroom. A shower room, with tiled walls and floor, is illuminated via a window. A vast, 45 m², multi-purpose, through room is illuminated via three windows. Exposed, oak wood beams and joists. A back stairway provides access to the room. The layout of the premises would make it possible to install an additional bathroom.
The stairway goes up to a landing. An anteroom, with a sloping ceiling, features the exposed roofing framework. This room, illuminated via a south-facing skylight, has a cupboard lining one wall. Another room, also with a sloping ceiling, could be used as a small spare bedroom with a storage area. It is currently used as a passageway, providing access to the “dormitory”, a 36 m² room with a sloping ceiling.
This 2-storey annexe building, adjoining the main house, awaits renovation. The ground floor is taken up by a woodshed, spanning approx. 9 m², and a storage area, spanning approx. 8 m². The attic upstairs, reached via a ladder, spans a similar floor surface area.
Perfect as a holiday home, which is currently the case, this very pleasant house, with its reasonably-sized, low maintenance garden, would ideally suit a Parisian family eager to listen to birdsong and to pick apples straight from the tree.
Paris is within easy reach.
