In the south-west of the French department of Eure-et-Loir, 125 km from Paris, with an A11 motorway slip road just 10 km away. Brou and Nogent-le-Rotrou, two small, nearby towns, have all amenities. Chartres and Le-Mans are easily reached via the motorway. An undulating and wooded 18-hole golf course is 18 km away. This is a region of small irregular-shaped fields separated by hedges and ditches, with rivers and heavily wooded hills. It will greatly appeal to nature lovers as well as hunting and fishing enthusiasts. During Marcel Proust’s walks, it provided inspiration for several chapters of his “Du côté de chez Swann” (Swann’s Way). Local heritage has been preserved and rehabilitated, very often in accordance with good trade practices; a good example being the Royal Military College and Abbey in Thiron-Gardais, just a stone’s throw away.
The large, luxurious home
This large, luxurious home, constructed in 2010, includes spacious rooms on three levels. Rectangular in shape, with a wing set at right angles to the east gable wall, it is extended by the caretaker’s cottage, set back from the house. A polygonal tower, a terrace that can be reached from the first level and wide openings, all fitted with electric rolling shutters, provide views of the surroundings on all sides. Facing south-east, its walls are covered with ochre-coloured rendering and the roof with local tiles.
The caretaker’s cottage
This caretaker’s cottage adjoins the east side of the large, luxurious home, but is set back and separated from it by two large garages, able to take up to four cars. This house spans a total floor surface area of 140 m² over two levels. The stone-coloured rendered facade is topped with a local tile roof featuring three roof dormers. Autonomous as regards heating, it has its own boiler room housing an oil-fired boiler.
A building, standing at the entrance to the estate, blends superbly in with its surroundings. With a metal framework, it has a concrete floor and an awning on the main facade. It spans a floor surface area of 245 m² and can be used for storing maintenance equipment and vehicles as required.
Further away on the estate, an old rural house has lime rendered quarry stone block walls and a roof, covered with local tiles, featuring a roof dormer. This house, awaiting full restoration works, has its own entrance off the forest road.
A kennel has a little shelter covered with a local tile roof and a fenced enclosure.
This continuous estate comprises parklands as well as a lake and stretches out over 6.3 ha in front of the south side of the house. It comprises lawns and flower beds as well as miscellaneous species of trees and shrubs. The 1 ha lake, fed by a stream which winds its way alongside the property, comprises a little central islet and a shelter with a jetty where a small boat can be safely moored. Extending the east side of the property are meadows, stretching for as far as the eye can see over 13.4 ha. They are crisscrossed with bridle paths and feature little wooden bridges, spanning the stream. Both parklands and meadows are surrounded by a 23.5 ha forest, predominantly planted with seedling oak trees.
A discreet and continuous, lush haven of peace, comprising a wonderfully varied, natural landscape. With woods, meadows, a lake and a permanent stream, it has everything for the possible development of multiple activities linked to horse riding, hunting or fishing, or even all three together. Unless, of course, the new owners adore the incredible peace and quiet reigning over the premises, despite their ease of access, and wish to keep the privilege of staying here just for themselves and their friends. In any event, modern-day home comforts are but one of the ingredients that this extensive estate hosts for the well-being of its residents.
