This property is located less than one hour from Paris, in a small village, not far from all shops and services. It features a listed 17th century chateau with many outbuildings on around 32 ha (79.2 acres) of grounds with "à la Française" gardens with 2 large lakes.
|The paved courtyards, surrounded by the chateau and the first outbuildings.|
The chateau was built during the 17th century on the ruins of an ancient fortress and is made of free stone with a slate roofing. It offers 2 levels plus a 15th century basement and an attic. The central building, with a triangular pediment crowned by a bell-tower, offers around 800 sq. mt. (8,608 sq. ft.) of living space and is in good general condition. The inner decoration is remarkable, many period details remain in the building: 17th century wainscotings, 17th century parquet floors, stone staircase with iron wrought banister, 15th century vaulted cellars, etc. The chateau is sold entirely furnished.
|The North-West side opens onto the gardens and the two lakes.|
A double stone staircase, with a 17th century iron wrought banister, starts from the paved courtyard and leads to the ground floor of the chateau. This level is entirely devoted to reception rooms, with 5 mt. high ceilings (16.7 ft.). All the sitting rooms benefit from a beautiful sight on the gardens and/or the lakes and the waterfall. A large oval entrance hall with stone floor, exposed stone and large stone staircase with iron wrought banister, distributes a large octagonal blue and white living room, that gives access to the gardens, with parquet floor, fireplace, carved wainscotings, then a dining room with 17th century Versailles parquet floor, wainscotings, wooden blue painted panels, stone fountain, stone fireplace, then another living room, devoted to music, with wooden white and gold panels and finally a beautiful library with oak wainscotings.

The property benefits from many outbuildings symmetrically built on each side of the chateau. Two of them are linked to the chateau by a round corridor: a first building devoted to the professionally equipped kitchen with 7 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms on the 1st floor and a second building with an orangery and a beautiful chapel. Two small gardens lead to 2 other buildings made of stone including one with an orchard. There are also a barn (with 6 boxes) and a remarkable 15th century presshouse. On the entrance two 17th century pavilions flank the 18th century iron wrought gate.
