castles / chateaux for sale - seine-et-marne - 40km from the capital

An 18th century folly behind its old moats, 40 km from the French capital,
with 10 ha of wooded parklands and the possibility of an additional 15 ha


In a small peaceful hamlet in the area around Paris, in 10 ha of woods and parklands (half parklands and half woods). 43 km from Paris by road or 30 minutes by direct train.
The train station with its rail links to Paris is just a few kilometres away.


This chateau, standing in the middle of its small hamlet, was built in the 17th century. Two centuries later it was dismantled and rebuilt behind its old moats. The building of this harmonious property stands in pride of place amidst its parklands in a superb clearing bordered by trees.
The estate has kept the necessary outbuildings and annexes such as a caretaker’s cottage, a swimming pool awaiting renovation, a tennis court and a dovecote.
Superb main, wrought iron gates open into the parklands but the property also has a second entrance suitable for cars with remote-controlled entrance gates.
This chateau, built of stone and brick, has a slate roof featuring shed dormers as well as six brick chimney stacks. The building spans four levels including cellars and attic space. It is flanked by two side wings spanning two levels over cellars. Both wings are topped with terraces enclosed with stone railings.
The ground floor opens, at the front, on to a porch way with a double stone stairway and, at the back, on to a large terrace looking down on to the parklands.
French windows are set out the length of the ground floor. The windows feature small panes.

Our opinion

This exquisite chateau, still in its original condition, is characterised by an almost perfect balance. Virtually on the outskirts of Paris, it provides complete privacy for its residents who can, however, count on their neighbours. Neither too big, nor too small, it is a reasonable size with just the right amount of outbuildings and parklands. Tastefully kept and in good order, it has a commercial lease, making it possible to install offices whilst living in it as a family home.
