Description

Once the large, luxurious home on a vast estate, this now fully detached residence neighbours miscellaneous farm buildings, including a farm which has ceased all agricultural activity.
Built in the middle of the 19th century under the “Second Empire”, this building is set back off the road in 1.5 ha of grounds, comprising grasslands, woods, a lake and landscaped parklands. The grounds are planted with various species of trees and shrubs: oak, horse chestnut, plane, bamboo, conifer, laurel, cedar and boxwood as well as miscellaneous decorative plants.
It is accessed via a driveway ending at a gable wall and a courtyard closed by superb wrought iron gates, at the back of the building.

The chateau

This building has four sections comprising the main building and a wing set at right angles on each side, one wing protruding towards the front, whilst the other, protruding towards the back, is extended by a section of the farmhouse currently used as a workshop.
The stone walls are covered with rendering, the pale yellow colour of which is known as “eggshell”.
The Mansard-style slate roof has four slopes with zinc decks and slate breaks. It features classical triangular and Louis XV style curved pediment roof dormers covered in wrought zinc as well as several hinged skylights.
The facade of the main, central building is adorned with a balcony featuring pear-shaped balusters and a glass awning protecting a section of the terrace.

The main dwelling (420 m²)

The floors are covered with flagstones and tiling as well as oak and pitch-pine wood parquet flooring.
The original decorative features have been preserved: decorative staffs, moulding, rosettes, friezes, panelling, trumeaux as well as numerous marble and stone fireplaces of different styles.


Ground floor
The entrance on the courtyard side opens into a long corridor which provides access, on the right-hand side, to a toilet as well as a fully fitted kitchen and, on the left-hand side, to a large lounge spanning almost 50 m² with a white Directoire-style marble fireplace. This is followed by a small lounge, a dining room, a library, a study and various hall areas.
The flagstone terrace on the parklands side can be accessed directly from the reception rooms.

First floor
A landing provides access to a corridor, an anteroom and a suite comprising a bedroom with a bathroom, a toilet and a dressing room. There are also five bedrooms, a shower room, a toilet and miscellaneous hall areas.
The balcony, on the parklands side, can be accessed from four of the bedrooms.

Second floor
A landing provides access to three bedrooms with sloping ceilings.
Basement
This level comprises two vaulted cellars.

The farmhouse (approx. 130 m²)

Our opinion

The second half of the 19th century provides us here with a good example of the quality and the diversity of its works.
The most impressive residence in the neighbourhood, it bears the title “Château” together with the name of the site on which it is built; named, as is often the case, by the local villagers and continued by tradition.
This vast, elegant residence could be used as a family home, a holiday home near to Paris or for mixed private and professional purposes by those seeking an unspoilt quality of life not too far from the country.
This property has no audible or visual nuisances.
