Occupied during the Second World War, it then became the joy of a French actor-composer.
Today, this country mansion stands in the midst of the parklands. Its slate, hip roof, its two, slightly protruding wings and its central pediment, featuring a bull’s eye window, give a certain grandeur to this building which can be accessed by two densely wooded alleyways forming a half circle.
The north-facing immaculate white facade, marked by its soberness, features two rows of windows and perfectly aligned wooden shutters. A few steps going up to a porch lead to the main entrance.
The south facing facade, built with Saint-Jean bricks opens on to a wooded garden, with an aboveground swimming pool area some 50 m away.
There are other outbuildings with their original appearance such as a ripening shed, an attic and an area left open - until another use for it is found.
It is additionally possible to purchase a second house, spanning approx. 140 m², at a distance from the property.
The small chateau
Two large, individually-designed facades, each with its own entrance, a south side and a north side. The conversion works carried out on this country mansion have preserved its authentic character. Spanning a floor surface area of approx. 300 m² over three levels, it includes numerous living rooms and bedrooms.
The ground floor, starting with a vestibule featuring two-tone, beige and orangey-coloured floor tiles, is composed, on one side, of two sitting rooms and, on the other, a dining room, followed by a fully-fitted, contemporary kitchen. The latter is preceded by a hall area. A toilet and numerous wall cupboards concealed behind large doors complete this level.
Reached via the staircase, the first-floor landing leads to a 12-m long corridor, with three windows looking out over a landscaped garden. The corridor provides access to three bedrooms, one of which has a study, a dressing room as well as a bathroom, with a shower and toilet. The entire floor faces south with a view of the garden.
On the second floor are two bedrooms, with sloping ceilings and sharing a shower room, as well as two dressing rooms. These rooms are followed by an attic, spanning a floor surface area of 45 m² and awaiting conversion.
From the vestibule with its two-tone cement flooring and its staircase that leads to the upper floors, the ground floor serves, on one side, two sitting rooms with parquet flooring letting in lots of light thanks to the windows on both sides, a garden view, beautiful high ceilings, cornices and mouldings, and marble fireplaces.
On the other, a dining room that has the same fittings and finishings as the sitting rooms opens in to a long passage way with original floor tiles leading to a contemporary fitted kitchen, both simple and functional. A toilet and a number of built-in cupboards with sturdy doors finish off this level nicely.
It is accessed by the staircase that leads up to a landing, opening on to a 12 m-long corridor with three south-facing windows, looking out over the landscaped garden. It leads to three big bedrooms with parquet or carpet floorings and marble fireplaces. There are in-built wardrobes adding to the storage space. A spacious contemporary-style bathroom, a shower and a toilet complete this floor.
Exposed beams, parquet flooring and white walls define the character of this second floor with slightly sloping ceilings where there are two bedrooms, dressing rooms and a shared shower room and a toilet.
Leading on from these bedrooms, an attic with exposed beams and terracotta tiles could be converted to make more living space on this level.
The basement houses a wine cellar and a boiler room.
The second house
This recently renovated house, spanning a floor surface area of approx. 130 m², comprises three bedrooms, one of which is on the ground floor, and their three shower rooms, a fitted kitchen and a large reception room, a former tithe barn now in use as a lounge and dining room.
Floors are covered with sprung parquet flooring or are tiled.
The swimming pool
The aboveground swimming pool, surrounded by lawn and shrubs and bushes is in front of the annex house.
A ripening shed, an attic and an open space in an old stone and brick building await restoration and conversion.
A country mansion with a double entrance and two different-styled facades, as different as two sides of a coin, it is surrounded by large green open spaces and cool, pleasant woodland. The interior rooms and their layout make this a very practical house to live in. As do its high quality finishings and the atmosphere of the place. Outside areas have also been well thought out. With such furnishings and fittings, the property could be used for a hotel and catering business or a family home.
