In the Centre-Val-de-Loire region, in France’s biggest national forest, with its 35,000 hectares of the total 50,000 hectares covered by Orleans forest. A little less than 30 km from Orleans, with its train station providing one-hour links to Paris-Austerlitz, and 120 km from the French capital via the A6-A10 motorways or via the N20. The village, with some 400 inhabitants, has a few shops and an excellent inn. The royal river Loire, Orleans canal which crosses a large section of the forest, the small character towns and the famous chateaux surround the property with an exceptional heritage.
The hunting grounds
These open hunting grounds are ideally located as the proximity of Orleans forest allows large numbers of game to roam freely. Adjoining other hunting grounds comprising farmland plains and woods, they extend over 240 ha of predominantly wooded land (138 ha). They also include 82 ha of tenanted, responsibly farmed land and 17 ha of grasslands that provide game with excellent cover.
The three year hunting plan comprises 23 red deer and 45 roe deer.
The grounds are leased on a yearly basis and provide a rental income of 12,000 euros. The lease has been renewed for the 2016 / 2017 season.
The forest estate
This forest estate, spanning approx. 139 ha, is subject to a Simple Management Plan which is due to be renewed in 2025.
Type of forest stand:
For 90%: conversion on 125 ha 45 a,
For 3%: coppice stand on 4 ha 69 a,
For 2%: resinous seedling forest on 3 ha 06 a,
For 5%: clear on 5 ha 87 a.
As regards the conversion, natural regeneration work through progressive felling is carried out. Most of the forest stands undergoing conversion are thinned out with a view to encouraging useable diameters; the understorey is to be preserved during felling.
The coppice stands are planted with birch, oak, hornbeam and aspen. Aspen is the main species; the coppice stands are of an average quality with low production. 74% is however useable.
The resinous seedling forests are predominantly composed of Corsican pine trees. The wood is of a satisfactory quality. An ambitious programme for the regeneration of these forest stands is underway.
The forest’s management objectives are to produce timber, industrial wood and wood for energy production.
This site is also linked to the Natura 2000 network.
The large, luxurious home
This 18th century, rectangular building was built in a classical style with plain, symmetrical lines. It has been fully restored. It spans a floor surface area of approx. 500 m², excluding the attic space, over three levels. A dressed stone overhanging cornice enhances the slate hip roof which features numerous roof dormers topped with a little pediment and brick chimney stacks. The stone facades are covered with beige rendering. Dressed stone framing surrounds the numerous openings and bull’s eye windows and stone steps provide access to all the doors.
The two pavilions flanking the main residence are built of stone covered with beige rendering. A dressed stone overhanging cornice enhances the slate hip roofs which feature several roof dormers topped with a little pediment. The building on the left-hand side was once used as an orangery. It has a small cellar beneath it. The building on the right-hand side houses a little chapel and a garage in use as a woodshed which is practical as it is right next to the house.
This exquisite residence, standing exactly 100 km from Paris’ Porte-d’Orléans on the edge of the urban area, features a rare asset, one of silence of such quality that it demands immediate respect. Fully restored, this discreet and romantic home has stood facing the old trees of France’s biggest national forest and exuding a form of subdued nobility for generations. The size of the protected site surrounding it makes endless walks possible. The communal lane that crosses the property is little used and is consequently not a nuisance. As an ultimate courtesy, this property already provides its owners with significant annual income from the exploitation of the forest and various paid rents.
