A listed, 17th century property and its 458 m² of private garden
in the centre of Dijon
Dijon, COTE-D'OR burgundy 21000 FR


In a town renowned for its art of living, located in the heart of the gastronomic and vine-growing Burgundy region, between Paris and Lyon (three hours from Paris as well as Genève and two hours from Lyon). This listed mansion house stands in the preserved sector of the town, guaranteeing it a double protection. Just a few minutes from the TGV train station; the nearest airport is in Dole, some 45 minutes away by car.


This property is set in the middle of the town, in a co-owned, listed building. The mansion house was constructed in 1660 by a secretary of the States of Burgundy. It is separated from the pedestrian street by a monumental gateway, featuring solid gates, decorated with moulding, topped with a basket handle arch, crowned in turn by a triangular pediment resting on two inverted corbels. The dressed stone building, spanning two levels, is topped with a Mansard roof. Once through the tall entrance gates, visitors have to cross a large, paved, inner courtyard to get to this 2-storey flat on the garden level. A few steps lead up to a porch way and the entrance door, flanked by pilasters and topped with an arch, resting on two mouldings with a central keystone. Said door provides access to a large, monumental, dressed stone stairway, with superb wrought iron railings and pink veining that brightens up its appearance. The mansion house’s old stables have been transformed into garages, two of which come with the flat. Beyond the rear facade stretches a large garden including two elegant constructions; one comprises an exercise room with a sauna and the second is a garden shed.

The flat

This flat is spread over two levels of living space with a wine cellar in the basement. It takes up a section of the main building of the manor house as well as a section of the wing set at right angles, including the vestibule with the vaulted cellar below. Said wing set at right angles houses the old stables, two of which have been transformed into garages, closed via two remote-controlled doors, enabling cars to the parked without disturbing the tranquillity and elegance of the main, paved courtyard. The ground or garden floor of the flat comprises bedrooms and bathrooms; upstairs are the kitchen, the lounges and the library. A terrace which looks out over a spacious garden has been laid out in an old inner courtyard.

A vaulted cellar, reached via the current main entrance hall, has been laid out in the wing set at right angles. It has a humidity control system and the perfect temperature for laying down the most prestigious wines. It is also used for tasting purposes.
Ground floor
This level comprises four bedrooms, a bathroom and two toilets. A modern, oak wood stairway goes up to a veranda or conservatory on the first floor. There are numerous storage areas and large cupboards. A laundry room is also to be found on this level.
First floor
This level comprises a large living room, a lounge-library in use as a television room and a second lounge linked directly to the kitchen. The bathroom, laid out at the end of the wing, includes a concealed toilet. Some of the parquet flooring is laid in a Versailles pattern. The lounge ceiling has been lowered whilst the living room has a French ceiling. A conservatory opens on to the outside terrace.

The studio flat

Laid out on the first floor of the wing set at right angles, the studio flat can be reached but by the mansion house’s monumental stairway and is therefore totally separate from the rest of the flat. It comprises a bedroom with a kitchen and a bathroom with a toilet, forming two rooms, the windows of which look out over the mansion house courtyard. It has been fully renovated over recent years.

The exercise room

This area is laid out on the garden level in a small independent brick construction with a glazed tile roof. It has modern parquet flooring and wide picture windows, giving an unobstructed view of the garden. One section houses a sauna and a shower room. Facing this outbuilding is a second, matching construction currently used for storing garden tools.

The private garden

This garden, spanning a surface area of 458 m², includes a superb, flower-filled lawn, planted with horse chestnut, lime and maple trees. Old mangers have been converted into planters for flowering and verdant plants. An original well provides a touch of authenticity. It is completely enclosed and solely for the use of the flat’s residents.

The garden

Our opinion

Refinement and elegance are combined here in a delightful setting, flanked by three of the Burgundy town’s bell-towers. The enclosed garden exudes a very unusual character given its location in the town centre, surrounded by the majestic, dressed stone facades of one of the town’s oldest mansion houses. The Age of Reason takes pride of place here, especially as the property has been outstandingly and prudently restored in accordance with good trade practices. Modern-day home comforts have been so efficiently and convincingly installed that the unwavering centuries-old chandeliers and the period furniture are the first to be surprised.
