Dating from the 19th century, this property was built of rendered millstone grit with dressed stone quoins on the old ramparts of Condé Castle. It has a zinc and slate Mansard style roof.

It is accessed via large wrought iron gates and a small pedestrian gate. The parklands are delimited on the garden side by the ramparts that look down on the river, out of reach therefore of flooding.

The residence

This residence, comprising three levels, excluding the cellar, stands between courtyard and garden. Its architecture on the courtyard side is marked by a tall cathedral window which illuminates the stairway as it spans all three floors. A stairway with a stone porch way leads to the main entrance, another one in the same style but parallel to the facade provides access to the back entrance on the rear facade. The roof features a bull’s eye window and pediment roof dormers.

It provides access, on the right-hand side, to a lounge with herringbone pattern, oak wood parquet flooring and a Louis XVI style fireplace.

Our opinion

This superb luxurious residence, its appearance typical of the 19th century, is without doubt one of the most outstanding in the town. Its highly romantic setting together with the advantages provided by its town centre position are the perfect compromise for a family seeking to leave Paris and take up residence in rural surroundings within fast and easy reach of the French capital, both during the week and at weekends. Courtesy of its location, the town’s residents can also quickly reach Val-d'Europe, its shopping centre, its TGV train station and its Euro-Disney attraction park as well as Roissy-CDG airport.
