, MEUSE lorraine FR

Location

In a game-filled region with 850,000 hectares of forest where Charlemagne liked to hunt. A breeding-ground for artists and art manufacturers (Baccarat, Daum, Gallé, Saint-Louis), local gastronomy and numerous traditional breweries. The marvellous Mirabelle plum, symbolic of a regional way of life, is featured at large convivial and gastronomic fetes. Provided with good motorway and rail networks as well as international airports. 2 hours from the Vosges ski area; 90 minutes from Paris via the French East-European TGV train; 40 minutes from Nancy via the RN 4. A small Medieval town whose name first appears in 962. It successively belonged to the Counts of Champagne, the Dukes of Bar, the Count of Luxembourg and the Duke of Lorraine before being annexed to France in 1766.

Description

In the town centre, ideally located just a stone’s throw from a market, shops and restaurants.

This impressive three storey building with its stone facade features tall openings with green frames
The L-shaped building provides privacy at the back by encompassing the garden.
This walled area spanning approx. 600 m² has weeping willows, bamboo canes, fruit trees, wisteria, roses and gardenias voluntarily left to grow wild.

The residence

An entrance hall with majestic proportions.
A marble and wrought iron stairway elegantly curves upwards from the hallway to a private flat.
The ground floor is currently used for a bed & breakfast activity.


Ground floor
At the end of the corridor, facing the stairs down to the cellar, is a door leading to the garden. Moulded double doors open into the area devoted to the bed & breakfast activity (classified “3 épis Gîtes de France”).
A lounge, three bedrooms with their bathrooms as well as a laundry area. The rooms are harmonious and symmetrical in line with these elegant 18th century residences where each room creates superb perspectives. All the architectural features, oak parquet flooring, doors and cupboards, have been preserved and restored. Each bedroom has a fireplace in good working order, one of which, in a monumental Lorraine style, has a fireback featuring coats-of-arms for the Maison-de-Luxembourg (Antoine) and the Maison-de-Savoie (Marguerite, symbolic figure of the County of Ligny).

First floor
A spacious, luminous landing provides access to the private flat which has a wide central corridor, large, luminous rooms and good quality oak parquet flooring. It also includes three bedrooms, a living room acting as a library, a bathroom and a fully-fitted kitchen. A door leads from the kitchen to the three-storey wing of the house that contains rooms reserved for maintenance. An interesting maze of half-floors then leads to an attic section and a children’s games room on the second floor.
A second stairway leads down to the garden.

Our opinion

Elegant and refined; majestic proportions.
Meticulous restoration works using ecological materials. The upper floors are in need of some attention.
A property that would make an ideal family home. It would also be possible to continue the current activity.
