farms for sale - yvelines - Île-de-france

An old, 12th-18th century, Seigneurial farm with equestrian facilities
on an estate of some 6 hectares in the Ile-de-France region
, YVELINES ile-de-france FR


This property stands in the French department of Yvelines, on the outskirts of a village with some 700 inhabitants. It is but 45 minutes away from Paris’ Porte-Maillot via the N14 or the A13 motorway. Three train stations are between 6 and 12 kilometres from the house. The surrounding towns have numerous infrastructures, comprising all schools and shops. Giverny, a tourist mecca and birthplace of impressionism, is 15 km away from the property.


This farmhouse is all that remains of what was once an estate comprising a medieval castle, no longer in existence. It has been completely restored under the aegis of the French Bâtiments-de-France and Heritage Foundation and is now an integral part of the regional heritage.
This fully walled property, surrounded by farmland, spans approx. 6 hectares. The homogeneity of the buildings, set out around a square, 5,600 m², landscaped and flower-filled courtyard, gives it great appeal. The buildings exude the charm of exposed stone, embellished by the addition of modern materials.
The enclosed parklands are planted with trees, several hundreds of years old.
This property comprises two houses, two barns, one of which is currently used as an exhibition gallery, and a stable housing 11 horse loose boxes with a tack room and a grooming area.
All these buildings form the sides of the central courtyard, the middle of which includes a pond and an 18th century dovecote, not far from the old watchtower.
This property is set amidst five hectares of paddocks, with a riding arena, a lunge ring and a carpark, reserved for horse lovers and their mounts.
A swimming pool, out of sight of onlookers, is there for the owners’ private use.

The main house

The two sections of this house are set at right angles to one another. The millstone grit facades feature numerous openings, protected by a gable roof, covered in local dry tiles. Some of the openings are enhanced with slatted shutters. This building, laid out lengthwise, spans a floor surface area of 450 m² over two levels. Its recent renovation works were carried out strictly in keeping with traditional methods. These premises can be lived in straightaway.

It has wrought iron railings with a wooden handrail and steps. Rooms are laid out on either side. A first lounge is adorned with a fireplace and wooden wall panelling, with a concealed television screen. A second lounge, in use as billiards’ room with a bar, follows on from the first one.

The large barn

The “gallery” barn

The exhibition gallery is laid out in one of the old barns, once used for milking cows. It combines traditional and industrial materials in a contemporary design with its wooden roofing framework, its forty lights, its exclusive steel furniture, its bar and its stairway, a monumental sculpture made of epoxy steel that goes up to the mezzanine-lounge.

This building, with its concrete floor, provides access to the inner landscaped courtyard and the dovecote via a paved terrace as well as to a section of the countryside via a metal-framed pergola, covered with canvas and made by the Eiffel workshops.

Our opinion

This estate, with its numerous buildings, will, in its current state, lend itself to all kinds of projects such as a home for one or more families, a bed & breakfast or function activity, enhanced by its art gallery laid out in the barn, as well as a horse-riding centre, the facilities of which are already installed. Set in the heart of the countryside and fully enclosed by walls, it is steeped in tranquillity and freedom for the delight of man and beast alike. The past has left its venerable vestiges such as the watchtower, its “eyes” taking the form of roof dormers. Paris is not far away and yet can be completely forgotten, a present that the property will offer its new residents.
