manors for sale in france french vexin regional nature park

A manor house, built in almost 7 hectares of parklands with a lake,
15 minutes from Cergy-Pontoise, in the French Vexin Regional Nature Park
, VAL-D'OISE ile-de-france FR


The town is in the French department of Val-d'Oise, where its border meets that of Yvelines, and within the French Vexin Regional Nature Park, 15 km from Cergy-Pontoise. Predominantly rural, the area is watered by the Aubette, a small river, tributary of the river Seine on its right bank.
The housing is grouped in the market town, laid out along the river, as well as in the hamlet of Villette, a little further to the south, home to a famous chateau.
This manor house is within easy reach of the A15 motorway and is just 45 minutes from Paris.


Standing in close to 7 hectares of parklands, this manor house is accessed via a large drive off the road. It is bordered by a caretaker’s cottage and a large outbuilding, in use as a garage. Going around the building, it is possible to see vast parklands, with a swimming pool, a tennis court, an orchard and a wood surrounding a lake.

The main building

This manor house dates from the early 17th century. It is built over two levels, under a converted attic floor. The stone facade is rendered. The roof, covered with small, flat tiles, has been completely redone.

Ground floor
The ground floor can be entered via a multitude of doors and French windows, some of which are arched. An eye-catching entrance door in the centre of the facade is highly original. Composed of coffered oak wood, it has a dragon-shaped doorknocker. Guests enter a vast hall with a view over the parklands, extending behind the property.
Said entrance hall provides access to a “little lounge”. This room has stained-glass windows embellished with lions and is enhanced with a majestic open-hearth fireplace, topped with the village coat-of-arms.
A few steps go down from the hall to a corridor, paved with tiles featuring inlaid decoration, which leads to the rest of the ground floor. The first room is the “large lounge”, with its herringbone pattern parquet flooring and its exposed beams. Its wide windows, opening on to the garden, let in copious amounts of light all day long.
It is followed by a kitchen with terracotta floor tiles.
At the end of the corridor is the ground floor dining room. This room impresses visitors because of its gilt chandelier, its old beams, its panelling and its outstanding dressed stone fireplace. Wooden framed, small-paned windows look out over the garden side on to the natural surroundings.

First floor
A wooden stairway, facing the entrance, goes up to the first floor. This level comprises a master suite, three bedrooms and two bathrooms, all reached via a corridor, with floor tiles laid in a chessboard pattern. All these rooms look out over the parklands.
The two bathrooms are enhanced with small mosaic floor tiles and small ceramic wall tiles.
The master suite reached via the stairway is the main room on this floor. A long bathroom, fitted with a bath and a wash-hand basin, faced with black and white marble, extends the vast bedroom.

Converted into a large room spanning the entire house, this attic space makes it possible to contemplate the chateau’s impressive, one-hundred-year-old beams and trusses. This area could easily house a work-space, a games room or even a library.

The garden

The vast parklands, with a section on a slightly different level, include an orchard, planted with numerous species of apple trees. In addition to the orchard, a vast area laid to lawn for leisure and relaxation purposes encompasses a terrace as well as a heated swimming pool, the technical machinery of which is recent.
Just a few metres away, a tennis court is in need of some repairs. A vast lake is fed by a brook. Like a mirror, the lake reflects the many trees. A copse curves around the lake. The garden has been laid out in nooks and crannies such that all members of the family can find their own private area.

The outbuildings

This property also includes several outbuildings, surrounding the main building.

This house has its own private, enclosed garden. It comprises four rooms on a ground and first floor.
Opposite, an outbuilding is currently used for storage purposes.
At the other end, a group of buildings are used as outbuildings and, notably, a garage.

Our opinion

Styles and eras have succeeded one another in this place. This residence has integrated all the modifications, both large and small, that time has imposed from the 17th to the 20th century. The lasting quality of its natural surroundings means that they constitute the key asset of this property, especially as it is but a stone’s throw from Paris.
Its excellent state of repair enhances the overall qualities of the premises, making them a select property for any buyer seeking to move straight into a first-class residence.
