mansion houses for sale dijon in france

A Renaissance period house, redesigned in the 18th century,
comprising two buildings with rental accommodation in Dijon
Dijon, COTE-D'OR burgundy 21000 FR


This property, in the historic district of Dijon, once home to the Dukes of Burgundy and now renowned for its gastronomy linked to wine, has the advantage of being just a few minutes from a TGV train station with links to Geneva, taking 2⅔ hours, and to Paris, taking 1¾ hours. Lyon is just 2 hours away via the A6 motorway. The shops in the town centre as well as the pedestrian sector are near to this quiet district, respectful of its environment. Its interesting heritage includes well-kept facades and courtyards as well as superb houses standing along the street.


This property comprises two buildings, a first alongside the street and a rear pavilion, separated by an inner courtyard which can take at least two parked cars. A passageway, open on the side, provides access to the closed courtyard via a gateway with an interphone security system. The courtyard is paved. The main building contains a rented, 30 m² studio flat and a 52 m² doctor’s surgery on the ground floor as well as a flat on the 1st and 2nd floors. The pavilion is also rented out as 2 studio flats, one spanning 25 m², the second 20 m², respectively on the ground floor and upstairs. The pavilion can only be reached from the courtyard. The first building has a private entrance in the courtyard for the main residence and a street entrance for the rented studio flat and the doctor’s surgery.

The building on the street

This building, with its 18th century architecture, is in reality an old Renaissance style residence which still bears several original features. It was built over a double vaulted cellar. The entire building has been redesigned. The Burgundy tile roof contains roof dormers. The front facade of the main building is rendered and features tall windows with small wrought iron balconies. The rear facade is also rendered but features some of the half-timbering of the original Renaissance style building. The mark of the Renaissance period is also to be seen inside in the jambs of a fireplace dating from this time. The pavilion, standing at the back, was once the stables. The series of arches of the old carriage doors has been walled up with dressed stone in order to form a pavilion that is habitable on two levels. One section of the facade was redone in the 20th century.

Ground floor
The ground floor of the main house comprises a rented studio flat and a doctor’s surgery. A hall, reached via the courtyard, provides independent access to the flat laid out on the 1st and 2nd floors. A street entrance provides access via a few steps to the two rented areas. The ground floor studio flat includes a living room, a kitchen area, a bedroom and a bathroom with a toilet. It spans a floor surface area of approx. 30 m². The doctor’s surgery spans a floor surface area of 52 m² with a main entrance hall, a corridor leading to the waiting room, the doctor’s consulting rooms and two toilets.
First floor
This level is taken up by the flat reached via the building’s central stairway. It comprises a dining room-lounge, with an 18th century fireplace set on the site of the Renaissance fireplace, of which the jamb moulding is still visible. It also includes a study, a bedroom and a kitchen overlooking the courtyard. This flat was completely renovated a few years ago and, therefore, is only in need of a few improvement works.
Second floor
The second floor comprises the house’s five bedrooms. It is reached via the central stairway which leads to a corridor. A bathroom and a separate toilet complete this level. The bedrooms are laid out in the attic space and illuminated by roof dormers. They have either parquet flooring or terracotta floor tiles.

The courtyard pavilion

The facade of the pavilion, originally constructed from dressed stone, was modified in the 20th century when new openings were made so as to make it easier to enter the two studio flats contained therein. The first spans 20 m² and the second 25 m². The smallest comprises a hall, a shower room with a toilet and a main room. It has its own electric heating. The biggest flat includes a hall, a living room, a kitchen, a 2-storey bedroom with a sloping ceiling and a bathroom with a toilet. It has a similar heating system to the other studio flat.

Our opinion

A doctor’s surgery and three studio flats in the very centre of Dijon are a good rental investment: the improvement works needed in the large available flat will not be expensive. The age of the two buildings is demonstrated by numerous decorative features whether they date from the original Renaissance period or from the 18th century redesigning works. Large arches are still to be found on the facade, once that of the stables, in the sumptuously paved courtyard. The former home of the Dukes of Burgundy is not just a large, lively, university town, it is also a leading tourist attraction.
