Less than 2 hours from the French capital, a character property and its 7.5 ha of land.
This house, typical of the Puisaye region, nestles at the bottom of the Ouanne Valley, surrounded by forests, not far from the French department of Yonne’s border. It is near to a historic, tourist town with a church dating from the 13th century, although it was later redesigned. Said church features extremely interesting murals, including one known as “Trois Morts et des Trois Vifs” (Three Living and Three Dead). A regional art and history museum, well known for its collections of earthen and stone ware, representative of a tradition of pottery and ceramics, attracts numerous visitors. The surrounding, undulating countryside is dotted here and there with traditional houses, featuring brick window framing and Burgundy tile roofs. The peace and quiet is broken but by murmuring water, that of the lazy river and numerous springs, feeding wash-houses and drinking troughs.
A garden composed of numerous rows of decoratively trimmed, large and small boxwood bushes, free of pyralid moths, adjoins the main residence and the guest house. Two cast iron Médicis vases, standing on stone pillars, at the entrance to the property, set the tone for the estate. The former farmers’ home, currently in use as a guest house, stands perpendicular to the main residence, behind which two brick stairways go down to the swimming pool. An orchard produces numerous fruits with its hazelnut, cherry, quince and plum trees. Pear and apple trees are trained along espaliers, a technique much used in the Middle-Ages, the origin of which dates back to Ancient Egypt. One 200-year-old pear tree continues to produce excellent fruit. Many remontant rose bushes are planted near to an immaculately kept vegetable garden and squares containing medicinal herbs and plants. A trellis on the guest house helps to create a romantic decor.
A circular brick sculpture, featuring two fish with bright blue enamel eyes, symbolises water - a pond is to be found in the garden -, as well as fecundity and wisdom. Animals show themselves in a wood from time to time.
The main houseThe old barn was renovated by two renowned architects, Mr-Mouy, from the Association-des-Maisons-Paysannes-de-France (the French association for peasant housing) and Christian-Liaigre, who is also an interior designer in Paris. Light-coloured lime rendering enhances the many openings, with red or brown, local brick jambs, set in the facade. Only the sills of the first floor windows are still made of stone. Two big, large-paned openings replace the old barn doors, set in brick-framed, basket-handle arches. The overall decor has been carefully thought out with a picture in the top of the two large openings and a little decorative frieze at the bottom of the walls. Obviously it can but be bright inside. Two French windows are flanked by little windows which were previously used for airing the barn as it did not require natural light. The architect kept and enhanced them, cleverly and meticulously using bricks to surround their semi-circular shape. Small lanterns installed above some of the openings make it possible to illuminate the outside at night so that the architecture of the house and the French formal garden can be admired. The roof is covered with Burgundy tiles, like that on the guest house.
Ground floor
This level notably comprises a dining room and a contemporary, very functional, American-style kitchen, with immaculate, gloss units. Beige-coloured sandstone floor tiles reflect the light from several openings. A glazed door provides direct access to the swimming pool. A large bedroom, with a bathroom fitted with numerous cupboards, is illuminated via a large, small-paned, south-facing window. Underfloor heating, air-conditioning, double glazing.
Double, oak wood doors …
