enhanced with springs near to the Sologne region
This property is near to a village and some ten minutes from a town with all shops, amenities and administrative services. A market selling local produce is held there once a week.
The Sologne region is about 30 minutes away. A railway station, with regular links to Paris-Bercy, is a 10-minute drive away. The French capital is 90 minutes away via the A77, dubbed the “tree motorway”.
All the buildings are set in tranquil, verdant surroundings with water fed to various spots courtesy of a 60 m deep borehole. The estate is partially enclosed by fencing concealed by vegetation. A communal lane separates the end of the property from the rest, without causing any daily nuisances.
The main, L-shaped residence has a wide facade, constructed in the 18th century and restored throughout by the current owners. The tile roof features hip roof dormers with overhanging eaves on both facades as well as triangular openings. This residence spans two levels, looking out over the garden at the back where water is continually flowing.
A summer kitchen, at the end of the building, makes it possible to eat outside in clement weather. It resembles one of those open-air cafés with a dance floor from days gone by. A room at the back is taken up by a workshop and a boiler room.
This building spans approx. 300 m² of living space over two levels.
The central entrance is reached via the terrace, decorated with a multitude of colourful flowers. The entrance hall, with its high ceiling, houses the wooden stairway going up to the first floor.
Under the stairs is a linen room, with a guest toilet opposite. A corridor leads to a vast living room. A lounge and a kitchen are at the other end of the entrance hall.
Following on from the lounge are a bedroom, a corridor lined with oak wood, storage cupboards, identical to those in the bedroom and concealing the door to the bathroom with a shower. The floor is covered with parquet flooring.
The rest of the floors, with underfloor central heating, are covered with square terracotta tiles. The ceilings feature exposed beams throughout. The lounge, the living room and the bedroom all have fireplaces, one of which includes a bread oven and a wood-burning stove.
Two corridors provide access to the bedrooms on either side of the stairway, with good quality, oak wood storage cupboards. All five bedrooms have sloping ceilings. There are two shower rooms and a toilet on this level which has parquet flooring throughout.
The pyramid-shaped barn
This impressive barn dates from the 15th and 16th centuries. Constructed from half-timbering and cob to form a square, it is covered with a vast, pyramid-shaped roof, the top of which goes up to a height of 8.5 m. It was once used for drying the harvested sheaves and for threshing the corn as well as a cowshed and a sheepfold on the sides. The current owners have preserved the building in keeping with its history and the authenticity of the materials.
The independent house
This 2-storey building is a way away from the main residence. Comprising a living room, a kitchen and two bedrooms, it is enhanced by a discreet garden.
The large farm shed with a covered area
Its floor surface area is approx. 80 m².
This property is like something out of a storybook, especially the pyramid-shaped barn which has been a hub of activity and hard work over the centuries. It is not only nice to look at but would also be pleasant to live in courtesy of its modular character. The buildings are immaculately kept and the main building has no need of any works. The property is steeped in tranquillity despite the rustling of the leaves and the tinkling of the flowing water.
