The French capital which is but some 50 km away can be easily and directly reached via the A6 motorway.
On the edge of Fontainebleau Forest, 10 minutes from the town, Barbizon is renowned worldwide for having attracted and sheltered numerous painters as of the 19th century. It notably became home to landscape artists, who were pioneers of the impressionist movement. They found an inexpensive inn, Auberge-Ganne, where they were free to work, laugh, sing and discuss things with one another. The famous “Barbizon School” was founded. Jean-François-Millet’s studio and the rocks painted by Camille-Corot are both good excuses for taking a walk.
The main street, lined with elegant residences, has some very good restaurants and galleries as well as local shops all within walking distance.
This recent residence spans approx. 865 m² of living space over three levels. The facades, featuring numerous, predominantly drop-arch windows and French windows, are constructed from exposed stone or covered with beige rendering, all under a local tile roof. An impressive front door is flanked by the two wings, both enhanced by a projection with paved flooring, the roof of which is supported on columns. The building ends, on the left-hand side, with a square turret, a large garage forming the right-hand end.
The section housing the swimming pool extends at right angles behind the house. Widely open on to the parklands via large picture windows, it features a flat roof, surrounded by stone balusters and supported by columns.
The caretaker’s cottage
The caretaker’s cottage stands at the entrance to the property, at a good distance from the main residence. It spans approx. 90 m² of living space and comprises a lounge, a kitchen, a bathroom, a toilet and two bedrooms. It has its own garage and a private garden.
The swimming pool
This section is an extension of the main building. It is reached via the first lounge and also includes a Jacuzzi. During clement weather, all the sliding pocket windows disappear completely into the walls, opening the area totally on to the garden.
The tennis court
Although the tennis court is near to the house, it is out of sight of onlookers.
The architect who constructed this vast residence a few years ago was not adverse to the charm of local materials such as exposed stone or terracotta tiles or decorative features such as drop-arch windows, the square tower, the design of the wrought iron railings or the vaulted cellar which resembles a vestige of the past. The vast living area has been well-thought out to optimise light penetration and to make it easy to move around the inside and the large garden. Everything is to hand: a billiards’ room, a swimming pool, an exercise room and a tennis court. Several lounges and various studies lend themselves to all reception and work configurations. Comfort and well-being have found their own style here.
