Property description
On the outskirts of Provins in landscaped parklands, a manor house and its artist’s studio - ref 929985
In a little sleepy hamlet, 90 km from the French capital via the N4, the Francilienne ring road and the A4 motorway in 1½ hours, close enough to Provins to go by bike or even on foot.
Provins SNCF train station has direct links to Paris-Gare-de-l'Est.
Poetic parklands, with ornamental pools fed by three natural springs, comprising cool areas enhanced with the sound of babbling water.
The property is entered via remote-controlled gates, opening on to a shady, tree-lined drive. A lake sparkles through emerald ferns, then, the manor house comes into view at the end of the garden, linked by a veranda to an artist’s studio set at right angles.
A garage laid out under the artist’s studio, a caretaker’s cottage and a lean-to. Cellars.
Perfectly protected, an outdoor, heated swimming has been installed at a distance.

The manor house

This residence, with origins dating back to the 12th century, was redesigned in the 18th and 19th centuries, resulting in its current appearance with its watch turret and its ochre-coloured rendered facade. The slate roof is in a good state of repair. This reasonably-sized manor house spans three levels.
An old outbuilding set at right angles has been transformed into an artist’s studio. The owners also had the idea of connecting the buildings via a veranda which acts as a conservatory.

The garage

A 40 m² garage, with a remote-controlled door, is laid out below the artist’s studio.

The caretaker’s cottage

This cottage spans two levels:
The ground floor includes a 70 m² workshop-garage, an open-plan kitchen adjoining a 14 m² dining room, a bathroom and a toilet.
The upstairs comprises two bedrooms respectively spanning 12 and 13 m².

The cellars

Three cellars are laid out under the terrace.

The swimming pool

A swimming pool and its machine room.
This outdoor, heated pool measures 13x5.5 m.



Our opinion
Ideally located in the countryside, near to one of the Brie region’s most emblematic towns, within easy reach of Paris, this property exudes the almost magical quality of making time appear to stand still. This manor house, bearing the mark of the ages from the 12th through to the 19th century, is extended in the most natural way possible by a sort of very bright conservatory, leading to an artist’s studio, set in an old outbuilding. Everything is harmonious, simple and comfortable. This property will appeal to all enthusiasts of comfortable tranquillity whether they are wanting to work in the peace and quiet or just take a break. The size of the grounds (3.5 ha) is also perfectly suited to this type of lifestyle.
