Nestling between the Vingeanne Valley and the so-called “Velours” forest, less than 3 hours from Paris, 30 minutes from Dijon, and 15 minutes from North Dijon (Valmy district).
This house, accessed via the A5 motorway, is set in a small village along the road connecting Dijon to Troyes, to the north-north-west of Dijon. An aerodrome is 3 km away. The village has approx. 200 inhabitants and its primary school is part of an inter-communal educational grouping. A hypermarket is just a few kilometres away. The region, between Tille and Vingeanne, is criss-crossed with hiking trails making it possible for visitors to visit major cultural sites; Fontaine-Française and Lux Castles are, for instance, but a stone’s throw away. A nearby slip road for the A5 motorway makes the house very easy to access.
The main house
Located at the end of a paved driveway, it looks out over an inner courtyard that is closed by two large gates in front of the main facade. Extensive parklands with some amazingly tall trees stretch out behind the buildings. The 4-storey building, spanning almost 545 m², is built over cellars with the reception rooms on the ground floor and the bedrooms predominantly upstairs. Topped with a red, interlocking tiled roof, the main facade is covered with a still brightly coloured, ochre yellow rendering. The facades feature large windows, closed by shutters on the first two levels, and smaller windows on the third floor. The top Mansard style floor is predominantly illuminated by skylights.
These flank the main house. On the right of the entrance courtyard is the old tobacco drying shed, the carcass of which is in a good state of repair. Built over two levels, it will need to undergo full renovation works in order to become habitable. On the left of the inner courtyard is a series of buildings: a wood shed, a dovecote, the boiler room, stables housing two loose boxes and a large barn with a garage, the ridge of which is impressively high. A bread oven in good working order has also been preserved in one of the outbuildings.
The romantic ruin
Behind the house is an overgrown ruin which could date back to the 17th century. Semi-circular arches in a quarry stone wall are supported on columns with quarry stone tracery, consolidated by dressed stone. The inside reveals wide, Burgundy flagstones which are in a good state of repair. This edifice adjoins a perimeter wall.
The parklands, planted with trees over one hundred years old, span almost 5,200 m². They are overlooked by a 600 m² orchard.
Sobriety and romanticism: the inside of this residence, which reflects the exterior appearance of a wise middle-class home, reveals a certain character due notably to its ancient floors, its old fireplaces and its old, original stairway. The clever layout of the well-proportioned rooms exudes a wonderful harmony, laced with a contemporary style of decor which brings the original decorative features to the fore.
The outbuildings are all in a very good state of repair such that the old tobacco drying shed could be converted into an annex house for friends or into a holiday accommodation unit for passing families.
Behind its row of semi-circular arches, the ruin comprises a delightful backdrop for candle-lit summer banquets with an ambiance right out of one of Claude-Le-Lorrain’s paintings.
