residences for sale - in the french department of seine-et-marne

A 16th century priory, a mill and outbuildings on the riverside
in a village in the French department of Seine-et-Marne


Some 50 km from Paris-Notre-Dame, 20 km from Euro-Disney, 10 km from Coulommiers and 5 km from Faremoutiers with all its shops. This estate, in a picturesque village where bridges span river and waterfall, majestically extends over two peninsulas.


This estate, right in the middle of the village, is enclosed by walls, fencing and, above all, the river. It extends over two peninsulas. It gives the impression of being in the heart of the countryside. The eye is drawn towards the distant meadows, the water and the old stone. The neighbourhood is free of nuisances.
Double gates open on to a long driveway, shaded by trees over a hundred years old. It leads to a clearing and a mysterious, 16th century, L-shaped priory, transformed into a home. A small bridge spans the millrace near to an old mill awaiting renovation. An island is set on the other side of the millrace. In the clearing facing the mill are two, almost symmetrical outbuildings, laid out around a lawn. They back on to a low wall which, further away features an opening, with attractive old gates, leading to an orchard-vegetable-and-rose garden. A second peninsula, on the other side of the mill, after the clearing, is a meadow where sheep graze. The swimming pool blends well into this pastoral setting.

The priory

This 16th century, L-shaped building, spanning two levels, features exposed stone facades, topped with a flat tile roof which was recently redone.

Ground floor
The front door opens into a room with an impressive cathedral ceiling. The floor is paved with Toulouse stone tiles. The stone fireplace was constructed by one of France’s top craftsmen.
This through room overlooks lawns and an uncovered swimming pool, on one side, and a small wood on the other via a vast picture window. A stone spiral stairway goes up from the lounge to a tower, whilst another symmetrical stairway, this one made of oak wood, goes up to the bedrooms from the other end of the lounge.
The vast kitchen, also a through room, is tiled. It has a French window on the swimming pool side. A back kitchen is in use as a laundry room. It adjoins the boiler room.
A large room, set at right angles in another section of the “L”, could be used as a study, a lounge or a ground floor bedroom. The floor is covered with terracotta tiles. There is a bread oven at the end. An open veranda in front of the house is used as a garage.

First floor
The upstairs is, in fact, composed of two mezzanines.
The stone stairway leads to a room in the turret which is in use as a study. The other, oak wood stairway provides access to a suite (shower room, dressing room and bedroom) in the small section of the “L”, above the room housing the bread oven. A third stairway goes up to two bedrooms reached via a landing room, a bathroom with two wash-hand basins and a toilet.

Water mill
The 12th century mill awaits restoration works on the inside. It has full water rights.
One of the two symmetrical buildings adjoining the vegetable garden is composed of an outstanding dovecote with a thousand dove-holes. It includes a 20 m² room on the ground floor with old terracotta floor tiles (storeroom) and a converted studio flat, spanning approx. 16 m². This comprises a lounge with a kitchen area and a fireplace, a bedroom, a shower room and a toilet. It is completed by a 24 m² stable.
The second outbuilding, symmetrical to the first, is composed of a 200 m² barn and a 17 m² workshop.

Our opinion

Just like a traditional, Chartreuse house, this property is secluded whilst being very near to a beautiful village. All of nature’s features are present. The buildings exude good taste through their authenticity, elegance and modesty. The only sounds to be heard are the babbling of the river, the singing of the birds and the wind in the trees. The principal boast of the property is its entrance driveway, bordered with majestic trees.
