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.
|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.

On the ground floor of the main house, an entrance hall with a remarkable medieval staircase (made of oak with ancient tiles) gives access to the first living room, with tiled floor and fireplace, opening onto the garden, a study, a large bedroom with 4 windows and inner oak shutters, an adjoined bathroom, a kitchen and 2 small adjoining rooms, another entrance hall, with its own staircase, opening onto a second living room with a large bay window, a opened kitchen, then a third staircase and 2 bedrooms.

A vaulted cellar is accessible from the main entrance. The house is equipped with a central oil heating system (with convectors for the 1st floor).
An opened barn, adjoining to the main house, leads to the garden on the eastern side. Then a caretaker's house (c.a. 45 sq. mt., 484 sq. ft.) offers a living room, a kitchen, a bedroom and a shower room.

The most beautiful building of the property is set on the back side of the courtyard: a large (28 × 9 mt., 93.2 × 30 ft.) and fortified tithe-barn with ancient stables. Made of stone with a tiled roof, the barn offers ca. 144 sq. mt. i.e. 1,549 sq. ft. on the ground floor and a beautiful oak roofing. The stables (offering the same space on the ground floor) is divided into 3 levels, accessible by an oak staircase, with beautiful rooms, tiled floors and an oak roofing.
|The southern side of the tithe-barn (on the right hand side) and the stables (on the left hand side) opens on the courtyard.|
