Property description
A small, comfortable, 18th century mansion house between courtyard and garden in the Champagne region - ref 739358
185 km from Paris via the A4 motorway, an hour away via the French TGV train. Just 20 minutes from Vatry airport with its regular flights to Nice, Corsica, Portugal and Morocco.
In the town of Châlons-en-Champagne, a town of art and history with 45,000 inhabitants. This town is enhanced by the lasting character of its stone and the charm of its half-timbered houses. Dubbed “Bubbling Venice” in reference to Champagne wine, it offers boat trips on the Mau and the Nau which wind their way through the old town, enabling visitors to admire its outstanding architectural heritage.
The town of Châlons-en-Champagne is home to the French National Centre for Circus Arts which regularly puts on spectacular shows. The locally born comedian, Pierre-Dac, would be proud to see that this art is now deemed an integral part of Champagne heritage.
This property is in the town centre, in a quiet street, near to Bartholdi covered market (held three times a week), the theatre (national stage), three museums, an ultra-modern library, a secondary school and a sixth form college as well as cafés and restaurants (some of which are first-class).
This little, detached mansion house is concealed by gates on the road side. The main building is flanked at right angles by two small, single-storey pavilions, enclosing a little courtyard.
A walled back garden, spanning approx. 200 m², is both quiet and pleasant. Laid to lawn with a central paved terrace, it is protected from its discreet neighbours by trees and shrubs.

The house

The main building, spanning 2 levels with a vaulted cellar and an attic, is constructed from limestone. Tall windows with stone lintels adorn a classical facade. The roof is covered with interlocking tiles.
The facade on the garden side is rendered.

Our opinion
If this little mansion house is ever pleasant, welcoming and comfortable, it is because it has been enhanced with notably decorative features from all eras since the 18th century.
There is nothing ostentatious about this property which sets just the right tone with a promise of serenity between courtyard and garden in a quiet street. It has no works to be scheduled.
With excellent TGV train links, there would be many advantages to living in such an elegant residence whilst working in Paris.
Châlons-en-Champagne, France
