A house “with nine heads” in the French Vexin Regional Nature Park
on the outskirts of the French department of Val-d'Oise
Beauvais, OISE picardy 60000 FR


This property is in the French department of Oise, in the midst of the French Vexin Regional Nature Park, near to main roads, 5 km from Chaumont-en-Vexin and its train station, with 60-minute links to Paris, 25 km from Beauvais and its airport.
Such a location makes it easy to get away to the sea (150 km) if staying in a house nestling in the countryside no longer appeals.


This property, dating from the 19th century, is in an excellent state of repair. It is constructed from stone and topped with small flat roof tiles. At the end of a no-through road, it is surrounded by fields and meadows. The house itself stands in the middle of the garden, amongst the trees. Its facade is notably enhanced with nine heads that appear to tell quite a tale.

The house

This 3-storey house is without a cellar. Its architecture, featuring quarry stone block walls, small brown flat roof tiles, zinc guttering and cockscomb ridges, is typical of the Vexin region.

Ground floor
The solid oak wood entrance door opens into a fully renovated dining room and kitchen area, with solid wood parquet flooring, exposed stone walls and windows on either side letting in copious amounts of light. The fitted kitchen is completely new. Adjoining this first room, the living room is enhanced with a fireplace. Windows look out over the surrounding countryside.
First floor
This level has solid pinewood parquet flooring throughout. A corridor provides access to a first, fully renovated bedroom, painted white, a toilet, a shower room and a second, vast bedroom, with an extensive view of the surrounding countryside. This bedroom has its own bathroom with a free-standing bath and an adjoining dressing room.
The attic space, laid out under the slopes of the roof, has been converted into a vast mezzanine room and a bedroom. The exposed roofing framework provides this area with real character.
The garden
The house stands in the centre of the completely level garden, planted with trees. Flower beds, with roses, irises and lilac bushes, border the facades and the gable walls, providing blooms all through the year.

Our opinion

This house’s facades, with their paterae, moulded panels, geometric intaglios, decorative corbels, diamond-shaped moulding as well as floral and reticulated bas-reliefs, are like an ornamentation dictionary with nine heads adding to the mystery. All of which is enough to excite the imagination and encourage residents to find out more. The inside is unpretentious. Windows and oculi provide scenery, dominated in the foreground by grass with trees in the distance. The countryside, extending under vast skies, also features something deeply fictional.
