A large mill, offices, a house and industrial buildings in the French department of Essonne
30 km from Paris and 20 km from Orly international airport
Paris, ESSONNE ile-de-france 75001 FR


The mill and its annex buildings, 30 km from Paris, 20 km from Orly international airport, near to slip roads on to the A6 and A10 motorways via the N104, not far from Orsay and Evry, are set in the midst of wooded areas and farmlands, by the side of a river.


The first written trace of Fourcon mill dates back to 1270. The mill belonged to the king in the 14th century. Destroyed during the One Hundred Years War, it was rebuilt as of 1466 and changed hands several times during the 16th and 17th centuries before becoming the property of Saint-Eutrope’s nuns. They were forced to leave at the time of the French Revolution. It was then run by various owners in the 19th and early 20th century, up until 1938 when a French Order gave notification of its decommissioning, the removal of its valves and the demolition of the weir.
The current owners have developed their activity on the site of the mill whilst preserving the old building, by renovating it and adding several extensions, outbuildings and industrial buildings.
Once through the entrance gates, a first brick house can be seen on the right, by the side of the river.
A bridge over the river precedes a walled courtyard, behind which stands the mill’s oldest building, known as the “big mill”, which is followed, on the left-hand side, by that known as the “little mill”. Behind them are a pond and an esplanade. The courtyard is closed by a garage and office buildings. Following on from these are a first recent industrial building, with its carpark, and a second older one.
On the other side of the river are a meadow, an orchard and a tennis court.

The big mill

The big mill is the property’s oldest building. It opens on to the walled courtyard, on one side, and on to an esplanade by the side of the pond and the river, on the other side.

Ground floor
An entrance hall provides access, left, to a study and, right, to a first, high-ceilinged lounge, adorned with a monumental fireplace. A few steps lead to a second lounge, laid out above the river, where it is possible to hear the water flowing past. A door, on the left-hand side of the first lounge, leads to a kitchen, followed by a back kitchen.
First floor
A stairway goes up to the first floor landing which provides access, on one side, to a bedroom, followed by a shower room with a toilet and, on the other side, to a toilet, a study, a bedroom and a bathroom.

The little mill

The little mill is built following on from the big mill and constitutes a self-contained dwelling. Just like the big mill, it looks out over the walled courtyard, on one side, and over the pond and the river, on the other.

Ground floor
The entrance hall, with its toilet, opens into the lounge, fitted with a fireplace. A door separates it from the kitchen.
First floor
A stairway goes up to the first floor landing. Behind is a laundry room. On the left are a bedroom and a door to a shower room with a toilet. On the right, a second bedroom, with a balcony, is connected via a corridor to the shower room.

The house

A brick house, standing alongside the alleyway, on the edge of the river, dates from the second half of the 20th century.

Ground floor
The entrance hall providing access to a toilet and a boiler room on the right-hand side, leads to a first lounge that opens on to a riverside terrace. On the left-hand side are a kitchen and a back kitchen. At the end, a second lounge is followed by a corridor to a first bedroom, with a shower room and a toilet. Above this bedroom is a study.
First floor
The landing provides access via a corridor, left, to a bedroom, followed by a shower room with a toilet, and, right, to two bedrooms sharing a bathroom with a toilet.

The office building

This 2-storey building closes the courtyard, facing the big and the little mills, on one side, and a garage, on the other. It looks out over the courtyard and the carpark belonging to the property.

The garage

This garage, closing the courtyard, can take three cars and is fitted with remote-controlled doors. It comprises an actual garage and a hall area on the ground floor as well as a room awaiting conversion on the first floor.

A recent industrial building

This recent metal construction comprises a single open space without any pillars or partition walls. It goes up to a working height of approx. 6 metres. An electrical mains room, spanning some 10 m², takes up the last third of the building.

An old industrial building

This older building, containing asbestos, has a ceiling height of 2.8 m. It is partitioned into four areas corresponding to its previous use; said partitions could be removed.

The tennis court

Set in natural surroundings, the tennis court is in a good state of repair.

Our opinion

Although this property has had several lives over the last 800 years, it has multiplied its assets ready for the next one. The natural surroundings are still present, enhanced by the water feature just as an old mill should be. The houses contemplate it from all of their small-paned windows. The office and industrial buildings are an added bonus as they would lend themselves to all kinds of commercial, reception or horse-riding activities. The time is ripe for the creation of an activity in premises that are aesthetic, functional, easy to reach and near to Paris.
