The village with 750 inhabitants is in the French department of Loiret, in a region known as Centre-Val-de-Loire, just a few kilometres from that of Burgundy. Paris is 130 km away via the A6 and A77 motorways, followed by the N7, and an hour by train via Bercy. The market town is in the middle of Loing Valley which forms a central part of the Gâtinais region. Exploring on foot reveals all the wealth of the local historic heritage: pagan temple ruins, an amphitheatre and old Roman baths, as well as vestiges of a Knights Templar Commandery taken over by the Order of Malta. The region is crossed by the famous Briare canal which goes through Chenevières, Châtillon-Coligny, La-Buissière, Gien, Briare, etc., linking the river Loire to the Seine. And there is no shortage of natural heritage with an arboretum and outstanding gardens, Orleans Forest and the banks of the river Loire, Europe’s last wild river. Shops and a restaurant are to be found in the market town which includes several schools.
This house, spanning a floor surface area of approx. 300 m², comprises two rectangular, adjoining and communicating, 2-storey buildings. It features exposed stone walls, gable roofs covered with flat tiles and numerous openings, including a Jacobin-style roof dormer with railings and other pavilion dormers with three-sloped roofs, as well as brick chimney stacks. The twin front doors, topped with a stone arch, and the mullioned window have stone framing; the other openings, including those on the gable walls, have brick framing. The south-facing facade dominates a stone terrace.
The outbuildings include a stone barn, spanning a floor surface area of approx. 75 m² with an 8.6 m high ridge. The superb roofing framework supports a gable roof covered with local tiles. This rendered building has Virginia creeper going up the facade. All the openings have brick framing and wooden shutters. The old cowshed, exuding old-fashioned charm, comprises a row of little rooms, one of which still has its long stone manger and its old ladder. On the east side, a vast veranda, laid out on an open terrace, adjoins the gable wall whilst the north side features a wooden lean-to. It spans a total floor surface area of approx. 108 m².
This tastefully converted residence exudes a delightful combination of timeless harmony and an air of the seventies. Heritage-loving architects undertook its renovation, seeking to preserve the major features of its past and its natural surroundings. The result is a subtle balance between the inside and the outside which will not leave visitors indifferent, especially homemaking enthusiasts who will adore the property’s almost insular appearance. It is worthy of note, however, that it has never been flooded despite its setting between the river Loing and the Briare canal. These great assets as well as the presence of shops and schools mean that this house could equally be used as a main residence as a country home.
