Ancient 14-17th centuries listed farm house, one hour drive from Paris

This property is located 80 km (50 miles) from Paris, not far from an access to a motorway, near a beautiful small city surrounded by forests, a few kilometres from a railway station, all shops and services. It features a main house with many outbuildings (including a tithe-barn, a dovecote, ancient farm buildings and opened barns), on 1.5 ha (3.7 acres) of grounds.

Main view
The western side of the main house opens onto a squared courtyard.

The property was built during the 14th century on former buildings dating from the 11th century. They were erected around a squared courtyard. The older parts are ISMH-listed: the tithe-barn, the dovecote and the well. All the buildings are in good general condition (the roofs were all redone in 1999). There are 3 housings on the property: a main 2-level house offering c.a. 530 sq. mt. (5,703 sq. ft.) of living space (some inner renovation works to be done), a guests' house (c.a. 45 sq. mt., 484 sq. ft.) and a recently created studio flat.
