An old country house, flanked by three turrets from the
12th, 15th & 18th centuries just an hour from Paris
, OISE picardy FR


In the heart of the French department of Oise, equidistant between Beauvais and Compiègne, on the outskirts of a little village with 400 inhabitants. 30 minutes from Beauvais-Tillé airport, 45 minutes from Roissy-CDG and less than an hour from the French capital. The village nestles in a slight fold of the relief, the wooded areas and copses of which are dotted with old heritage edifices. Although set in rural surroundings, this property is not isolated.


The entrance to this property is marked by an authentic stone porch way from the classical era. A section of its lateral wall includes an interesting pediment. This property, now separated from its farm, comprises two buildings standing side by side, dating from the 15th and the 18th centuries. One is constructed from brick and the other from stone.
The first is the old village castle. This red brick, medieval dwelling, adorned with a neo-gothic stone porch way, is flanked by two towers, one with a tile roof and the other with a slate and zinc roof. A third turret is concealed behind the building. The entrance tower bears traces of an old wall walk and has an overhanging brick cornice below the roof. The facades are adorned with several straight, bevelled windows, with safety bars, and roof dormers, all or part of the framing around which is stone as are the more outstanding features such as the firing and loop holes.
The second section of the residence comprises a rectangular, stone wing, with a row of half-timbering on the first floor at the back of the building. Recent renovation works alternately filled the timbering with brick and glass, the latter providing a very special light in the large room on the first floor.
More than 300 m² of living space span two levels.
The ground floor comprises a flagstoned vestibule which leads to a kitchen with a back kitchen, as well as to the other rooms. The wooden stairway, with its wrought iron railings and wooden handrail adorned with a copper newel post, provides access to the converted first floor.
In the main room, small tiles laid in a chessboard pattern contrast with an impressive stone and wood fireplace, the brick base of which supports a semi-circular cast iron fireback. The latter features a coat-of-arms, topped with a bust of a knight, wearing armour and a helmet, decorated on either side with two lions, as well as two standards bearing other coats-of-arms.
This is followed by a brick wood-storage area, open at chest height in the wall, and an astonishing pedestal stone sink, resting on a window seat above a well. In the opposing wall, a small door and a stone stairway provide access to a cellar and its surprising bar constituted from large, assembled pieces of dressed stone. A French window opens on to a terrace which overlooks the landscaped garden.
Two other rooms are also laid out on this floor, one of which has a door leading outside and a large stone and wood fireplace, the base of which reveals an old brick bread oven, as well as several little annex rooms.
Upstairs, two large rooms, including a reception room spanning almost 90 m², adjoin other small annex rooms. The reception room, with its cathedral ceiling featuring numerous exposed beams, is crossed by an impressive brick chimney flue. It is illuminated by a half-timbered wall that is half glass, half brick, the glazed section of which gives glimpses of the village and the surrounding countryside.
Higher up, the relatively large attic space features an outstanding roofing framework in one of the towers.
The grounds, spanning approx. 6,000 m², comprise a large front courtyard and a wooded garden on the side.

Our opinion

What could be better appreciated than receiving guests or working in a place like this old medieval dwelling, combining well-being with architectural beauty, convenience and authenticity? Preciously used for professional purposes, this residence has, in fact, been partially converted into offices for a company, which has had the beneficial effect of introducing all modern-day comforts. This property, set in the midst of verdant Oise, is in an exceptional geographical location thus providing a perfect balance between rural tranquillity and access to local as well as Parisian economic centres via near and fast communication routes. It comprises an ideal setting for self-employed professionals seeking to work from home or to run some form of a hotel and catering activity.
