Property description
A chateau, with a feudal appearance, dominating a valley 10 km from Chaumont-en-Vexin - ref 950021
This property stands in the French department of Oise, on the edge of Vexin Regional Nature Park, near to main roads, 10 km from Chaumont-en-Vexin and its train station with 1-hour links to Paris, 25 km from Beauvais and its airport, 40 km from Pontoise.
The location of this estate, dominating the entire valley, bears witness to the vestiges of the feudal system on which this chateau was built. It stands in the midst of its numerous outbuildings, its stables and its extensive, partly wooded parklands, home to an aviary and a tennis court. Its red brick architecture, with two large towers and an impressive restored slate roof, gives it a proud appearance.
The outbuildings, comprising a gatehouse, barns and stables, surrounding the chateau appear to be gazing at this giant. They furnish the property with all the areas that were required by its past way of life, notably for accommodating farm animals, horse-drawn carriages and horses. They are currently used for storing wood as well as equipment for maintaining the parklands and contain enormous potential.

The chateau

This rectangular chateau, standing at a distance from the street, spans four levels, including an attic floor which could be converted. This construction, free of all ornamentation, has the originality of being completely built from brick, including the roof dormers and cornices. Two impressive towers set on opposing corners disrupt the rectangular layout.
Between the street and the chateau is a “charretterie” where carriages were once kept.
A gravel driveway leads from the street gateway to the building, which is surrounded by vast grassy areas and notably a large grassy terrace, created in front of the chateau.
At the rear of the estate are two L-shaped outbuildings which flank the main building. The passageway between these two outbuildings provides access to wooded parklands, which include a tennis court and an old aviary.

The outbuildings

A vast grassy terrace facing the chateau is bordered by a balustrade. This superb viewpoint looks out over the valley below. A few stone steps at one end lead to a half-timbered “charretterie”, where carriages were once kept. With five parking spaces, it is extended by three enclosed rooms.
Flanking the chateau are two large, L-shaped farm buildings that were partially transformed into sumptuous stables for riding horses at the beginning of the 20th century.
One of the buildings is constructed from half-timbering, covered with flat tiles and topped with a clock tower. Inside these stables, the old stalls still have all of their original character, the lower sections of some being covered with white and turquoise tiles.
One section of the buildings is reserved for animals and the site of the old vegetable garden has been preserved.
A caretaker’s house was constructed in the 20th century, using the same materials as for the outbuildings. It therefore blends in beautifully with all the other buildings.

Our opinion
High, red brick walls exude great character under steep slate roofs. Two diagonally-opposed towers barely brush against the central building so as to reveal crow-stepped gables. Reconstruction works, carried out in the 17th and 18th centuries, enhanced the building’s medieval origins by seeking inspiration from Flanders. The dominant position was also inherited from its distant past. The quality of a property is equally judged by its outbuildings: each one of these is more harmonious than the other. Their potential knows no bounds. This vast estate is a promise of immersion in natural surroundings and long walks without leaving the property limits.
