Some forty kilometres to the south-east of Paris, the town of Melun can be reached by car via the A105 motorway or via the N6. The R line railway, more pleasant than the RER line, provides direct access, with no stopping, to the French capital in less than 30 minutes. Orly international airport takes 40 minutes by car.
This region is steeped in heritage. Vaux-le-Vicomte chateau is 6 km from the house, that of Fontainebleau is 17 km away, whilst the medieval castle in Blandy-lès-Tours is but 11 km away. Fontainebleau national forest with its mature, tall trees stretches to the outskirts of Melun. World renowned museums, horse-riding centres, golf courses and rock-climbing sites surround the town. There are numerous cultural and sports outings to be experienced.
The original, stone-clad, street facade, standing in an alignment of rendered walls, matches the wide, tall porch way. The residence can be entered either via said porch or via the narrowest section of the right-hand building or via the widest section on the left-hand side. These different entrances make it possible for the house to be put to multiple uses without causing any nuisances such as the setting up of offices or surgeries for those seeking to work from home, the renting of a flat facing the street to provide income as well as a private family entrance.
The facades facing the garden also feature exposed stone whilst various walkways and terraces provide links to the different sections.
The garden is made up of three terraces with natural floors. A tall horse chestnut tree stands in the middle. Depending on the year and their whims, a small vegetable provides residents with tomatoes, lettuces, green beans and potatoes.
The garden provides access to various rooms in the outbuildings and, via a stairway and a hanging terrace, to the first floor of the house.
The utility outbuildings
These comprise a laundry room, a boiler room and a storage area.
The leisure outbuildings
A single-storey building, at the end of the garden, houses a lounge, a storage area and a summer kitchen.
This astonishing haven is the result of the joining of two old residences, where half-timbering and terracotta floor tiles are to be seen in places and where the wide porch way still echoes with the whinnying of the horses pulling their heavy loads of straw. The garden is a little enclosed universe, overlooked by facades full of variety, with projections, terraces, balconies and stairways.
For the price of a Parisian flat, in which a family would be cramped, this vast house, in a very quiet street, could form the basis of a new way of life. This residence, besides being a large main home, is ideal for continuing the existing bed & breakfast activity. Expanding it would certainly provide a very good income. Concomitantly, medical surgeries or offices could be set up on the premises. A flat overlooking the street could easily be rented. All this stands but a stone’s throw from the Institution-Saint-Aspais, very practical for schooling children. The town centre location, easily reached from Paris and yet in the midst of a region with a wealth of cultural and sporting activities, is also an asset for a pleasant holiday home, where family and friends can come and stay outside of the French capital.
