To the south of the Greater Metz Area, some 20 minutes by car from the A31 motorway with links taking about an hour to the city of Luxembourg and its international airport as well as to Saarbrücken in Germany; Brussels is 293 km away and Paris is 335 km away via the A4 motorway. It can be reached rapidly in 85 minutes by rail from the French capital via a direct TGV train to Metz.
This chateau is in the Lorraine area. It stands in the middle of a small, sleepy village, backing on to a Moselle hillside featuring an old vineyard planted with Auxerrois vine stock. Below the village, the view forms a landscape of ploughed fields and grazing land. Although just a short distance from a large regional urban area and all of its shops, universities and administrative structures, this chateau and its village also have the benefit of pleasant countrified surroundings.
This building spans two levels of living space topped with an attic floor. The Jaumont stone, which was used for its construction, gives it a superb ochre hue which gleams during sunny weather. On the south side, towards the parklands, the front facade of the old pavilion currently resembles that of the main section even though the bay remaining from the old central building now constitutes a building set back outside of the carcass. These premises are characterised by their soberness, enhanced but by the quoins, the alternating sizes of the casement windows and the oculi in the roof dormers. The facade facing the main courtyard is more richly wrought. Preceded by a horseshoe-shaped stairway, it features a central projection with a bay on either side set slightly back. The projection, flanked by quoins, is crowned with a triangular pediment and the entrance door is topped with a semi-circular cornice. On the lintels of the side casement windows, rocaille motifs and a mask in the form of a woman’s head on the casement window of the central bay create a superb ornamental effect. This immaculately-kept building has been completed by the conversion of the attic space into several rooms, making it a comfortable home for a large family. The upstairs bathrooms, however, are in need of modernisation works. Verdant parklands slope gently down in front of the chateau’s south facade. Together with the main courtyard, they span a surface area of approx. 0.7 ha.
This chateau is not only characteristic of the 18th century but is also outstandingly beautiful. It still has a number of stately assets, notably the rich and elegant decor of its facade facing the entrance courtyard. Its internal architecture also remains unchanged with comfortable and functional living rooms. The parklands, set back behind a screen composed of tall trees, provide a captivating view of the chateau standing in the background on its dominant terrace. This property, courtesy of its proximity to a lively regional urban area, provides its residents with the rare advantage of being able to live in their own era surrounding by an ambiance inherited from the Age of Reason. This chateau hosted private functions (weddings, cocktail parties, receptions, exhibitions, seminars, etc.) in its large reception areas on the lower level for a number of years. Such an activity could be revived immediately as all necessary facilities are in place and the dynamics of the region’s economy constitute a favourable environment.
