In the middle of a rural region with numerous convergent valleys providing some outstanding points of view. In picturesque countryside where, here and there between the old villages and forests, are wash-houses, fountains and small chapels, all bearing moving witness to the past.
At a short distance from a little country road and near to a quiet town. Just a few minutes from a market town and a large town, less than 30 minutes from other regional towns and but 90 minutes from Paris.
The setting is tranquil and the surroundings pastoral.
The manor house
This fully fledged home has been lived in for some time, by residents who have converted it in a sober, traditional fashion, adding necessary home comforts whilst preserving the old character of numerous features. It has, therefore, kept all of its authenticity.
This robust, impressive looking building is constructed from stone under a roof covered with small flat tiles. The main facade faces south-east. It spans almost 250 m² of living space spread over a raised ground floor and an upstairs, topped with a large attic which could be converted. The various openings, some of which are slightly arched feature small-paned windows.
Reached via a flight of stone steps, the house opens into an entrance hall via a thick, heavy wooden door with wrought stone framing. The interior walls feature exposed stone, the floors terracotta tiles and the wooden ceilings their exposed beams.
Straight in front of the entrance door, a large stairway leads upstairs.
On the left-hand side of the entrance hall is a wide kitchen where an impressive fireplace takes pride of place. It is followed by a bathroom.
On the right-hand side, a large reception room precedes a smaller room.
The bedrooms are upstairs. The master bedroom is adorned with a stone fireplace.
The basement comprises cellars.
On the right-hand side of the building is a group of small buildings.
This property is in a reasonably good state of repair but is in need of some interior works.
Jean-de-La-Fontaine, native to the region, evokes the wash-house of the small neighbouring market town in one of his fables and the vestiges of a fortified Roman site are still to be seen on a nearby knoll. Thus demonstrating that the local stone is ever put to good use and this manor house, with its imposing structure and the impressive thickness of its walls, is no exception to the rule. The essential features of this unique property have been preserved. Its fortified architecture reflects a strong character and an originality that exudes charm. The garden blends in with its lush verdant, natural surroundings. And yet, neither the French capital nor the towns and their shops are far away. This relatively rare property is an attractive opportunity.
