In the Auxois Mountains, 3 hours’ drive from Paris and Geneva, 45 minutes from Montbard (TGV train station), the village, perched high on its hill, dominates a shallow valley. A medieval castle, with tall towers, is one of the oldest fortresses in the French department of Côte d'Or. A variety of architectural heritage is to be found along the streets, one of which includes this house. One of Burgundy’s best “Foie Gras” (duck liver pâté) is produced not far away. There is a restaurant in the village but the nearest shops and amenities are about 20 minutes away.
This residence, constructed a little more than a century ago, inherited an Art Nouveau style, free of any symmetry. Consequently, the courtyard facade features two entrance doors, two separate flights of steps, a round tower and a glazed rotunda. The main entrance is in the tower, protected by a protruding, slate-covered roof. A large window on the first floor lets copious amounts of light into the house, whilst providing a view over the verdant countryside. The top floor of the tower is an attic level, featuring smaller windows. The candlesnuffer roof is covered with slate tiles. The house’s slate roof features several chimney stacks and a pagoda-shaped roof dormer, divided into three sections. The facade has been partially modified with the addition of a glazed rotunda, looking out over the courtyard and the garden. Dressed stone framing surrounds the windows, giving the facade a structured appearance. The second floor of the house is enhanced with two balconies featuring wooden railings. The entire house, built over a full basement level, is in an excellent state of repair.
Spacious parklands surround the house. In the lower section, facing the house, are some lovely tall trees, a little gazebo and an ornamental pool surrounded by round stones. A little alleyway, on the left-hand side of the house, leads to a terrace, covered by a trellis which comes to life every spring. It is but waiting for family meals eaten outside in the shade of the dazzling sunshine. A gravel courtyard at the back is delimited by a stone wall, behind which a gentle grassy slope stretches up to a wooded section on the edge of the property.
This house and its parklands, on the side of a narrow country lane leading to the centre of the village, are laid out on a gently sloping plot. Wide, solid entrance gates open on to a gravel driveway leading directly to the main house, perching on a slight hillock. Following a stone wall behind the house, a lawn goes up to a little wooded section on the edge of the property. A gazebo takes pride of place in the garden. A shady terrace is ideal for sheltering from the hot sun during the summer months. The parklands are completely enclosed by a continuous stone wall, in a good state of repair. The position of this residence gives it a 180° view over the natural surroundings of the Auxois region’s rolling hillsides.
