A 17th century residence and its orangery, just an hour from Paris and near to Chantilly.
Paris is 68 km away, Chantilly is 13 km away, Charles-de-Gaulle airport is 48 km away and that of Beauvais is 33 km away. The village train station has 50-minute links to the French capital. The centre of the market town has all shops: a bakery, a mini-market, a butchery and a chemist. Two nearby towns, Senlis and Chantilly, are ideal for outings. The immediate surrounding countryside is taken up by the vast Chantilly Forest, once hunting grounds for the kings of France and now a haven for hikers and horse-riders.
This site was occupied all through the Middle-Ages by a religious order much-appreciated by the local inhabitants. The robust perimeter wall at the end of the garden is a vestige of this era. The house was initially constructed in the 17th century for a gentleman close to the Princess of Harcourt. During the 18th century, the entire property became part of the neighbouring chateau as a vegetable garden for the castellan’s family. The construction of the orangery at this time contributed to the transformation of the purpose of the premises. This garden vocation was to last until the 1960’s.
Nowadays, the property is still accessed via an impressive porchway, constructed from Saint-Maximin stone. Above the double wooden gates is a floor, topped in turn by a modillion cornice, reminiscent of the elegance of the “Ancien Régime” (Old Order).
This porchway leads into a large, paved courtyard, enhanced by a rose bed surrounded by boxwood hedges. It provides access, on one side, to the outbuildings as well as the orangery and, on the other, to the main house. The garden, beyond the courtyard, slopes gently down to a brook.
This property is unoverlooked, but it is not secluded as the church bell-tower and the village can be glimpsed beyond the perimeter walls.
The houseComposed of a main building, this house is constructed from exposed stone and rendered quarry stone blocks. The main building spans two levels, with a garden level and a converted attic floor. It is topped with a steep, gable roof, covered with flat tiles and featuring gable-fronted roof dormers. Stone has been used for the surrounds framing the openings, the quoins and the cornice.
In the centre of the facade facing the courtyard, three sets of double doors, of a size typical of the 17th century, are surrounded on either side by two windows. Whilst the garden facade has bigger openings, letting copious amounts of light into the reception rooms.
The east facade is flanked by a projection, covering the gable with a hip roof. It has two windows and a roof dormer. A stairway, concealed within the building, provides access to a little garden on the heights.
Ground floor
The main entrance hall impresses visitors with its high ceiling and its beam system. It provides access, on one side, to a large reception room, steeped in sunlight courtesy of its through layout. Exuding a warm atmosphere, it features terracotta floor tiles, large-paned casement windows, a small Louis XVI style fireplace as well as exposed ceiling beams and joists. Beyond the lounge, a bedroom, with its bathroom, communicates with the garden. On the opposite side, a kitchen, adjoining a dining room, is in the centre of the house. The entrance hall further provides access to a laundry room which could also be a kitchen, a study and, above all, a little, particularly bright lounge (or another bedroom).
First floor
A landing room at the top of a spiral stairway, concealed in the wall, provides access to three bedrooms, with strip pattern parquet flooring, and a bathroom. A mezzanine area completes this level with a second wooden stairway going down to the study on the ground floor.The …
