Legal Informations & CGU
This old 18th century residence, with a house featuring a 13th century tower, stands near to a little Burgundy village just a few kilometres from Clamecy train station. The property is in a natural area known as Forterre, set between the Puisaye and Auxerrois regions. The panoramic views of the area, stretching as far as the eye can see, are illuminated by a bright light especially in spring when mosaics of cereal crops reflect the sun.
It is also the birthplace of writers such as Colette as well as numerous historic characters including Louis the Pious, Joan of Arc, the Great Condé and La-Grande-Mademoiselle.
All shops are to be found just a few minutes from the estate.
The main house
The main house spans one level topped with converted attic space. All the openings on the ground floor are fitted with oxblood red, solid wooden shutters. Each has stone sills and lintels. Wisteria runs along the facade. The hip roof is covered with traditional, Burgundy, flat tiles, the colour varying from red through to brown in keeping with the daylight. The roof features three elegant roof dormers, with local red brick jambs. These masonry roof dormers, with their pediments, are typical of the regional architecture.
The second house
This house, flanked by a tower, spans two levels. The ground floor features a semi-circular arched, glazed fanlight. It is set above two windows with stone sills and lintels. The framing around the entrance door and the string course under the fanlight are made of very compact or semi-hard, white limestone from Aubigny quarry.
A fully glazed veranda on the first level has been constructed in keeping with the building’s architecture. The facade of the house is constructed from ironstone, a geological characteristic of the Puisaye region. Limestone was used for the quoins. Nearby, three level stone steps go up to another wooden entrance door. The latter comprises a semi-circular arch composed of protruding stone voussoirs. The second level features several windows, including two small ones set in the tower. All the windows have the same stone surrounds.
A vaulted cellar completes the house. It is entirely made of exposed stone and spans a surface area of approx. 14 m².
An old barn comprises several storage areas and stables. It features a very large covered area where meals can be taken during the summer months. The barn spans a surface area of approx. 108 m². Two farm sheds house several loose boxes.
This composite property is reasonably isolated but the village is nearby.
Very few works are needed apart from those decorative touches to suit the new owners’ own personal tastes.
This estate, neither too big nor too small and easy to maintain, would be ideal as a holiday home.
The property is therefore perfectly balanced by its location and its size.
Furthermore, the 13th century tower bestows the estate with additional charm. It would be more than possible to run a bed & breakfast activity here, especially as the region has a very good tourist trade.
