This property, on the edge of the Beauce region, is set in the undulating, wooded countryside of the Voise Valley, just a stone’s throw from a village and 4 km from the shops.
The little village, near to the tourist towns of Chartres, Rambouillet and Maintenon, all three some 20 km away, can be easily reached from Paris via the A11 motorway.
The barn and the old woodshed, transformed into a family home
Looking widely out over the verdant courtyard, the spacious living room has a high ceiling. The impressive fireplace is naturally on the lounge side and the coloured concrete floor provides the area with a contemporary touch. A straight flight, wooden stairway leads from the lounge section to the upper level which comprises five bedrooms and four bathrooms and toilets. There is parquet flooring throughout the upstairs.
The old woodshed, adjoining the living room, has been transformed into a vast kitchen. The bare stone walls, the exposed roofing framework and the large bread oven all bear witness to the authenticity of the buildings.
This building, transformed into a guest bedroom, looks out over the courtyard via a double window. It still has its bare stone walls and its mangers. Adjoining the bedroom are a shower room and a separate toilet.
A few stone steps lead upstairs to the press-house, now transformed into a guest bedroom. The conversion of the room and its adjoining shower room left the flint walls and the original roofing framework exposed.
The miller’s home
This house, now transformed into a holiday accommodation rental unit, comprises a living room and a bedroom, with a shower room and toilet, on the courtyard level. The terracotta floor tiles, the old stone sink and the fireplace blend harmoniously with more contemporary features such as the coloured concrete flooring in the bedroom and the metal stairway. The shower room looks out at the landscape behind the property. Upstairs, off the mezzanine, are a bedroom and a shower room with a toilet.
The mill, spanning four levels, stands by the side of a diversion of the river Voise. The sluice gates and the weir were constructed in 1843. The 400 m long millrace is consolidated by an earth dyke. Mentioned as of the 18th century on the Cassini maps, this property constitutes one of the last homogeneous properties of this type in the Beauce region. The mill, renovated in the 19th century, bears historic and sociological witness to the beginning of industrialisation and comprises period machinery. In operation until 1950, its various owners have kept it in good working order for their own pleasure. Due to its recent renovation, it is still able to produce an excellent flour today.
The small station
This small station, constructed in the late 19th century, was on a line that linked the town of Dreux to Auneau. It is the vestige of a time when the railroad opened up the countryside. It is now transformed into a holiday accommodation rental unit, with a garden and a separate entrance. It comprises a kitchen, a veranda and a lounge on the garden level, with two bedrooms upstairs.
The contemporary, wood-clad construction
This new construction stands on the edge of the Voise. Courtesy of its walls, with their wood cladding, topped with a roof covered in plants, it blends discreetly into the landscape. The south facade opens extensively on to a wide balcony corridor that looks out over the river and the parklands. Spanning a floor surface area of approx. 130 m², the spacious inside, going up to the full height of the roof, is also clad with wood. An impressive wood-burning, storage heater backs on to the north facade, contributing to the warm atmosphere of the place.
The almost entirely closed courtyard creates a little enclosed universe, set in verdant surroundings. The buildings, all different and all interesting, are unified by their exposed stone walls and their steeply sloping, tiled roofs. The river runs alongside the property, just as it should for an old mill. The keeping of the mill’s facilities in good working order for the last 70 years says much about the affection residents have had for the premises. The current bed & breakfast activity is more than justified by the tasteful renovation works that were carried out. However, it would also be tempting to keep such charm all to oneself.
