This is a land of culture with the house of the Claudels and that of La-Fontaine. It is also a land of war with, in particular, the Battle of the Marne which left numerous vestiges throughout the countryside, notably the military cemeteries. They stand as a reminder of this war. Chalmont Hill or “Butte”, not far from the market town, acts as a shrine, providing 360° panoramic views over the surrounding countryside. This site is now marked by sculptor Paul-Landowski’s huge memorial, named “The Phantoms”, which was given French Historic Monument classification as of its creation in 1934.
On the edge of the Tardenois region, between Paris and Reims, these vast undulating landscapes comprising farmland and forests, were spared by the industrial revolution.
This house provides glimpses of the various eras of its long life, from the Knights Templars in the Middle-Ages through to 19th century middle-class salons. The building, constructed from large blocks of local stone, rendered on the facade and left exposed on the gables, is protected by a slate roof. It stands facing a garden, laid to lawn, with a central, paved alleyway leading to the front door. The various eras are to be seen in the different styles of the windows. The facade reflects a very real harmony despite the differences in levels as, on one side, there are obviously two levels as opposed to three on the other. Apart from this, the facade is sober, without any particular ornamentation, other than two string courses and an old wisteria, growing around the front door.
This family home is steeped in character coming from its long history as well as from its current owners who have lived there for 25 years. Exuding compassion, this house will immediately appeal to those bothered enough to show any interest in it and is actually more complex that might be believed. With its various gardens, its multiple construction eras and its dual “town versus country” aspect, this residence is not just a large, luxurious home. It is possible to approach the truth by understanding that it draws its longevity from the family happiness that it has experienced and even created.
