This property is located in the Centre-Val-de-Loire region in the French department of Eure-et-Loir, in the Paris, Chartres, Orleans triangle. 100 km from Paris via the A10 motorway and the N20, 40 km from Chartres and from Orleans, 23 km from Châteaudun and its subprefecture. The train station is 13 km away and numerous trains provide one hour links to the French capital via the Gare-d’Austerlitz. The small village nearby has 150 inhabitants, all shops are to be found in the little neighbouring towns. The region, deemed the granary of France, has vast cultivated expanses and this estate nestles in a verdant oasis.
The main rectangular building, dating from the 15th century and redesigned in the 19th century, is flanked by four corner towers. It spans a total floor surface area of approx. 1,350 m² over three levels. The south facade features numerous brick-framed, twin arched openings. Three slightly protruding pavilions, topped with roof dormers, and two turrets, with candlesnuffer roofs, complete the castle. The semi-circular arched doorway is topped with a small central balcony, featuring wooden railings. Each of the towers has a separate entrance. The two large towers are built in a similar manner and feature numerous openings. The north facade is rendered; dressed stone framing surrounds the numerous doors and windows, protected by long wooden slatted shutters. Along the length of the facade and under the overhanging roof, columns made from tree trunks, set on stone bases, support a very long open veranda. The two-sloped slate roof, featuring pavilion roof dormers and roof vents, is totally new.
The caretaker’s cottage:
Spanning a floor surface area of approx. 100 m² over two levels, it is constructed from exposed stone over a cellar and topped with a three-sloped slate roof. A garage adjoins one of the gable walls. This house comprises an entrance lobby, a toilet, a kitchen, a lounge, two bedrooms and a shower room on the ground floor. The upstairs, spanning the same floor surface area, could easily be converted.
Spanning a floor surface area of approx. 340 m², this building comprises a farm shed, going up to a ridge height of approx. 6.6 m, a garage and two workshops. A door links it to a long traditional farmhouse, spanning approx. 186 m², 6.6 m high. Standing at right angles to the barn, it is used for storing wood. The brick-framed openings resemble those of the castle, with arched recesses and old wooden doors. The main entrance is protected by a two-sloped awning, supported by wooden beams. This building is constructed from stone and covered with a roof featuring several slate slopes.
Spanning a floor surface area of approx. 230 m², this stone and brick construction features numerous openings, large wooden doors, windows and bull’s eye windows. The west facade forms a long, open gallery supported by wooden columns. The adjoining rooms house stables with three horse loose boxes, miscellaneous rooms and a barn featuring a ridge approx. 10 m high. The gable roof is covered with interlocking tiles.
The tower house:
Spanning a floor surface area of approx. 130 m², this square, stone building adjoins a 19th century tower. This outbuilding, with its slate roof, comprises an entrance lobby, a lounge in the tower, a large living room with an open-plan kitchen, three bedrooms and a shower room with a toilet.
Additional outbuildings include an old water tower, cellars and an old henhouse.
The magic of colours and the choice of materials delight every nook and cranny of this desirable building, completely revamped by Mlinaric, Henry-&-Zervudachi, internationally renowned designers and interior decorators. Courtesy of their vision, together with the work of landscape gardeners and other craftsmen who looked to its future, this majestic residence appears to have started a whole new chapter of its long existence with its old stone and architectural curiosities having much to tell. The flora and fauna abounding throughout the estate add their delightful punctuation to this tale. Each of the living rooms, not too big or too small, have their own purpose and currently comprise an unusual abode where peace and tranquillity reign. The buildings are, however, in need of some masonry and plaster works in order to repair a few leaks that appeared before the roof was completely redone. The barn roof also awaits restoration. The estate is actually managed and looked after by a caretaking couple.
