An 1855, former, small farmhouse, its outbuildings and its enclosed garden, just 1¼ hours from Paris in the north of the Yonne department.
In the north of the French department of Yonne, 120 km from Paris, 12 km from Sens and 40 km from Fontainebleau, where the borders of the Champagne-Senonaise and Burgundy regions meet, the village of Thorigny-sur-Oreuse has a rich heritage with churches, wash-houses and chapels in a rural setting, alternating woods and fields. The administrative centre for the “canton”, the village has everyday shops and amenities.
Paris is but some 2 hours away by car courtesy of the A5 motorway and an hour by train from Sens.
This property was once a small farmhouse, constructed in 1855. Standing on one of the village’s main streets, it has a double, road and garden, aspect, enabling it to enjoy village life as well as the tranquillity of a private home. A set of wooden carriage gates, each featuring a pedestrian gate, opens into a passageway going through the house to the garden, shielded from noise and onlookers. The property is marked by brick, the colours, red, white and blue, as well as 2-sloped roofs covered with tiles.
Three old outbuildings border the garden, spanning approx. 750 m². They are currently used for storage purposes.
The houseConstructed over cellars in 1855, this 2-storey house features inward-opening, wooden-framed windows, with light blue shutters. Its roof is covered with Burgundy tiles. On the road side, red brick quoins and surrounds framing the openings bestow the building with a special geometrical and symmetrical air that contrasts with the white rendering of the walls. Wrought iron railings adorn all the windows except for that above the front door which features a small balcony. The more sober, garden facade is organised in a more random manner with two Velux skylights. Almost all of the inside has been renovated.
Ground floor
The front door opens into a vast living room, with grey stone floor tiles. One section of the ceiling features exposed beams. A closed-hearth fire is housed in the fireplace, backing on to a wall, with its beam mantel and coloured stone jambs. The grey, the beige and the red brick are reminiscent of the building’s external facades. A straight, wooden stairway goes upstairs. A modern, fitted kitchen, with its wide picture window overlooking the garden, communicates with the living room. A flight of steps covered by a veranda goes down to the garden. A toilet and a shower room complete the ground floor.
First floor
Upstairs are three spacious bedrooms as well as a bathroom. Old, hexagonal terracotta tiles cover the floors. Beams are exposed and the windows let in copious amounts of light. This is, without doubt, the most authentic and least renovated floor.
Second floor
The old attic was converted some ten years ago. It is reached via a straight stairway going up to a spacious landing, leading to a bedroom, on one side, and a study, on the other. Skylights make it possible to appreciate the view over the surrounding countryside and over the Burgundy tile roofs, whilst letting a great deal of light into the study. The floors are laid with strip pattern parquet flooring and the roofing framework, with its main and tie beams as well as its splines, etc., has been left exposed.
The garden gives access to a few steps leading to the various cellars running under the entire house. With vaulted walls and concrete floors, they are sound and ventilated on both sides.
Three buildings border the garden. They respectively span surface areas of approx. 25, 50 and 40 m². They are in a good general state of repair and are currently used for storage purposes. The biggest has wooden flooring on the first floor and a tile roof that was recently redone.
