This property, spanning a surface area of 109 ha, comprises:
- A forest spanning approx. 42 ha,
- Farmland spanning approx. 50 ha,
- Two lakes,
- Wooded gardens,
- A farm and its annex buildings.
The origins of this property date back to the 13th century.
A narrow street lined with local houses, leading off the small village square, the middle of which contains a humble, interesting church, continues gently down to wide gates, flanked by stone walls.
Supported by two tall pillars, the heavy, metal gates open into a vast trapezoidal-shaped farmyard, typical of the region.
Several buildings inside the perimeter wall, enhanced by green open spaces, constitute the enclosure; facing them is a beautifully constructed, elegant residence.
An impressive dovecote in the middle spans approx. 50 m².
The main, recently renovated and converted building, spanning more than 350 m², was built, like the outbuildings, during the 17th and 18th centuries.
The quality of the restoration works cannot be faulted.
The more rectilinear and more traditional annex buildings were constructed during the same era.
This estate, long the property of a farming family, has therefore been provided with modern-day home comforts and a function worthy of its standing.
The dimensions of the architecture vary but form a coherent property. Built of stone, the buildings are topped small flat tiles and harmoniously integrate and feature several shed dormers.
On the right-hand side of the entrance gates, bordered by a lawn and a flower-filled garden, stands a large outbuilding spanning approx. 420 m² with an extension stretching as far as the residence. Once stables and garages, it now houses workshops, garages, sheds, a woodshed, a laundry room, a cellar, a dog grooming room as well as an artist’s studio.
A small building on the left-hand side, used for farmyard animals, is extended by a long farm building, spanning almost 370 m².
A large section of the perimeter wall is bordered by a hedge composed of tall trees.
Opposite, bordered by a terrace, is a one-storey construction with a high, exposed roofing framework. It spans more than 120 m² and has been converted into a vast function room.
This is followed by a large building, spanning approx. 280 m², used for function purposes. Set back, it includes a large room with an exposed roofing framework, a large stone fireplace and a billiards room on a mezzanine floor.
It also has four bedrooms with bathrooms and toilets and a vestibule.
The caretaker’s accommodation, spanning almost 120 m², comprises four rooms and a terrace.
There are two, large, double garages and a dog kennel.
An authentic dovecote in the centre of the enclosure houses a large circular office.
On a lower level, a lawn bordered by hedges, trees and shrubs surround an ornamental pool.
As a result of continual conversion and maintenance works since its renovation, the property is in pristine condition both inside and out.

The main residence

A front terrace, extended by a lawn, bordered by a low stone wall, is reached via stone steps.

Our opinion

The particular charm of this property comes from a marvellous balance. The surroundings, marked by the outstanding preservation of the region’s natural environment, and the architectural quality of all the buildings produce an effect of overall perfection that has become rare. The quality of the restoration works carried out here also enhances this first, delightful impression.
Said perfect balance exudes beauty and serenity.
On top of the peace and quiet comes a temptation or rather an invitation to hunt.
This property would be ideal for a project involving a hotel and catering activity.
