Property description
On the outskirts of Beauvais, an old priory in the midst of a village - ref 363712
This property is set in one of the oldest communes in the Beauvaisis region, at the foot of a church, constructed in two stages and featuring Romanesque as well as Gothic styles. Beauvais town centre, its famous cathedral and its airport are just 4 km away; Paris is 80 km away and the beaches along the Somme Bay are about a 100 km away.
Carriage gates, at the foot of a majestic, listed church, open on to a gravel drive leading to the house via its street facade. A lawned, wooded garden, laid out in front of the building, is enclosed by walls. Standing at right angles to the main house are outbuildings that include an old parish hall and a covered area, opening on to a wooden terrace.

The main house

This building is currently a family home with modern-day comforts. In the 17th century, it was a priory then, in the 19th century, a presbytery, before finally becoming a country house in the 20th century. Constructed from stone, it spans two levels under an attic floor. Its external walls, covered with white rendering, are topped with a slate roof. Wisteria runs along the facade, whilst rose and hydrangea bushes at the bottom of the wall increase its charm.

The outbuildings

A group of brick buildings extend from the corner of the main house. They constitute vast outbuildings.

The garden

The walled garden faces the house. The church looks down on to the property as if it were guarding the premises.
With its rose, lavender and hydrangea bushes, this priest’s garden forms a wonderful landscape, featuring a superb palette of colours in the summer season.

Our opinion
Sober architecture, balance, plain fixtures and fittings as well as modern-day home comforts are the characteristics of this property. An almost timeless house that the presence at the end of the garden of a venerable church, dating from the Middle-Ages, appears to arouse from a sleepy tranquillity, reminiscent of the character of a certain village dear to Proust. Its proximity to Paris makes it even more appealing and sought-after.
