Property description
In Burgundy, 100 km from Paris a large luxurious house set in the midst of 7 ha of parklands - ref 376225
1 hour 10 mins from Paris, close to Sens, in the Gâtinais region, a property comprising two houses in the midst of wooded parklands. The estate is close to shops and there is a SNCF train station just a few minutes away.
Near a small historic village with its 13th century listed church as well as an old stately home once called “La Grange aux dîmes”, a property full of character that always fascinates its inhabitants.
A double wood door opens on to a wide path through the woods, bordered with a few lights that are very useful come night time. The property reveals itself little by little, the main house and then the boxes covered by the vegetation. A gravelled courtyard provides access to the front of the main house for vehicles. A second house stands out close by. Light shines through the trees and is reflected on the green shutters. At the back of the house the ground is part gravel part lawn. Some stone ornaments decorate the parkland, Medicis vases, stone seating amongst the trees, sculptures of a lion hidden in the foliage and a full-sized satyr at the front of the house. Bridle paths, lawns, boxwood hedges enhance the property. It offers a quiet pastoral landscape, far from the bustle of the city. Another rather pleasant feature during the summer is: the Olympic swimming pool and its pool house. It is well hidden in the grounds and measures approx. 90 m2 and is 2.5 m deep. The pool is lined with lovely mosaic tiles.

The main house

It comprises two floors. It has a gable roof featuring sash and dormer windows. All the windows are double with large panes. A floral garland runs along the length of the facade. On the garden side, there is a conservatory extension and the doors and double windows open in to it. A painted frieze decorates the outside of the facade.

Our opinion
In a peaceful pastoral setting, one hundred km from Paris, where many would gladly lay down their roots. A bed and breakfast activity would be suitable here especially with presence of a second house, a well-suited guest house in good condition. It would also be ideal as an easy-access holiday home for a family living in Paris. Provision needs to be made for some minor refurbishments. The pool house would need some attention. The main house is in very good condition. With the hotter summers we are having due to climate change, the house seems to be well-insulated.
