A large residence, dating from the Age of Reason, near the economic activity of Charles-de-Gaulle airport, 30 minutes from Paris.
The Plain of France, where the borders of the Valois and Multien regions meet, is a wonderful rural site which has always made its inhabitants wealthy. Still today, agriculture is an economic generator, even though the dynamic activity created by Charles-de-Gaulle airport is developing more and more. Although this region of the Greater Paris Area has become strategic for companies, reinforced by its unequalled road and rail links, this residence remains timeless and free of all nuisances.
With such transport networks, jobs and schools are always nearby. And yet, this residence stands in the midst of a very old market town, not far from a 15th century church, the bell-tower of which can be seen from the windows. Food shops, a café, amenities, a chemist and a health centre, all within walking distance, provide an ever-traditional way of life.
This large house, known in the past as the “Château de l’Espérance” (chateau of hope), was constructed in 1750 in the middle of the Age of Reason. It stayed in the same great landowning family right though until 2005. This did not, however, prevent the different generations from carrying out aesthetic and technical modifications, always with the same constant of letting in light.
This residence stands in wooded parklands, set back off the road. The property is enclosed by outbuildings at the entrance and by high old walls on the parkland side.
The property is set between a courtyard and the gardens. Tall wrought iron gates open on to a driveway going around a main, grassy courtyard, making it easy for cars to move around. Behind the house, wide parklands planted with majestic trees are crossed by shady pathways. This peaceful setting is sheltered from the exterior hustle and bustle.
The residenceThis residence has highly homogeneous, classical architecture. The informed eye will note that the entrance facade features 19th century aesthetics, whilst that of the garden side has remained such as it was during the reign of Louis XV. In fact, a desire to modernise the house was felt around 1860. Nevertheless, this discreet difference is shown (for the 19th century additions) by the presence of outdoor slatted shutters, a wrought iron canopy, framing surrounding the openings, with straw-yellow keystones, and curved corners for the door and window frames. And lastly, rusticated masonry marked by moulding decorates this front facade now reflecting the 19th century fashion.
The main, rectangular building, constructed from rendered quarry stone blocks, features 12 bays. The quoins and the framing surrounding the openings are a uniform white in colour.
The house, spanning two levels with a porch, is topped with a double hip, slate roof. A cornice, running along the edge of the eaves, supports the guttering and zinc work. Said cornice is also different on each of the facades. The roof features chimney stacks with, at one end, a zinc-covered roof terrace.
This large, soberly decorated house inspires a timeless and luminous elegance, completely justifying why it was known as the “Château de l’Espérance”.
Ground floor
The house is entered via double, glazed doors, topped with a canopy. These doors provide access to a through vestibule, with veined marble floor tiles and, at the end, identical double doors leading directly out to the parklands. Said vestibule leads, on one side, to a dining room, a small, adjoining lounge as well as a kitchen and, on the other, to a large lounge, followed by an adjoining billiard room and the old orangery, now converted into a self-contained studio flat. All these through reception rooms give an impression of clarity and communion with the outside. They are marked by their era, with …
