Property description
A villa, soaring skywards and dating from the Belle-Époque, in the parklands of the old Chateau-du-Perreux - ref 881864
This property comprises a house spanning 300 m² of living space. It stands, with its two terraces, in the middle of a 700 m² wooded garden. The ground floor, spanning 100 m², is taken up by an entrance hall, providing access to a triple reception room and a dining room, spanning a floor surface area of approx. 70 m², as well as a fitted kitchen, with its eating area laid out on a veranda and opening on to a terrace. A landing, lined with bookshelves, leads to the first floor rooms. These comprise a main bedroom, two other bedrooms, a bathroom and a shower room. The second floor, with sloping ceilings, includes a bedroom and its lounge, two other bedrooms and a bathroom. All three levels can be accessed via a lift. The 100 m² basement comprises a wine cellar, a laundry room, a boiler room, miscellaneous storage areas and an old staff bedroom which could possibly be converted into a studio flat. The garage can take two cars. There is also a car parking space at the entrance to the property. This villa is, generally speaking, in a good state of repair, although new owners may wish to add their own personal touches. Caretakers and a video camera security system ensure the safety of the co-owned estate. There is also an alarm system.

The villa

This villa was constructed at the beginning of the 20th century, soaring skywards in a resolutely sophisticated style. It is built from millstone grit, topped with a majestic roof resembling a hat and flanked by a turret, giving it a stately touch. Although the architecture is complex, as was often the case in the Belle-Époque, it is nevertheless balanced. A contemporary extension, out of sight at the back, has been added to increase the floor surface area of the house.

The garage

A garage, adjoining the house has been discreetly added to the property and can accommodate two cars. It has a remote-controlled door.

Our opinion
Moving into the parklands of an old chateau is a bit like becoming lord or lady of the manor and the house needs to be up to standard. Such is the case here. Not only does it feature regionalist Anglo-Norman architecture but it also reflects an original style with its tower, the roof of which brings a fairy hat to mind.
The vast reception area on the ground floor looks out over its verdant setting through the wrought ironwork on the windows. A terrace, made cosy by the vegetation, acts as a transition area between the inside and the outside.
The immediate surroundings are like a sign that the age of privileges is not totally over. And yet, the town-centre, with its shops and schools, is but a stone’s throw away.
