A pleasant, 19th century home, set in its wooded garden, 1½ hours from Paris in Burgundy.
The area around Sens comprises a rural landscape alternating fields and woods on the edge of the Champagne region, where its borders meet those of Burgundy and the Ile-de-France.
This property stands in a market town, with some 700 inhabitants and a listed Romanesque style church. It also has a bar-restaurant and a cheese shop. 5 km from Sens, the subprefecture of the Yonne department, the market town has all amenities and shops necessary to everyday life.
Within easy reach of the A5 and A6 motorways, 40 km from Fontainebleau, the 120 km separating it from Paris can be travelled in 1¼ hours by car and 55 minutes by train from Sens station to that of Paris-Bercy.
A vast set of wrought iron gates open into a gravel courtyard. The latter, bordered by vegetation, comprises the main house, once a large, luxurious home belonging to the neighbouring farm, and a limestone barn, typical of the region. Surrounded by its walled garden, this house has a panoramic view over the grassy areas, dotted with trees and crossed by a dirt track.
A bread oven, a woodstore and a cellar complete these premises.
The large, luxurious homeIts 2-storey, brick facades, enhanced with Virginia creeper and wisteria, feature numerous symmetrical openings, with inward-opening windows. The hip roof, covered with Burgundy tiles, is flanked by two chimney stacks. An annexe building, also with a hipped roof, adjoins the left-hand side of the house.
An entrance hall provides access to a corridor which leads, on one side, to a hall area, a toilet as well as a bathroom and, on the other, to a fitted kitchen, with floor tiles, and a vestibule, housing the stairway. Further on, a dining room and a living room are separated by glazed doors. All the rooms have French windows opening out on to the large terrace, facing south or the courtyard. A fireplace enhances the living room which also features large bookcases. Floors on this level are laid with hexagonal terracotta tiles, covered with sea-rush matting in the living rooms. Ceiling beams have been left exposed.
The stairway, with its two quarter turns, has plain, white-painted metal railings, although moulding and a gilt ball decorate the newel post. The steps go up to a wide landing which gives access to four bedrooms, a bathroom and a storage room. The clarity of the walls as well as the size of the double-glazed windows makes the bedrooms extremely bright. Each one has a marble fireplace. Floors are laid with strip pattern parquet flooring throughout.
The stairway continues up to the attic space, where the impressive roofing framework, with its struts, beams and queen posts amongst other things, has been left exposed. This area is not converted.
This completely walled garden, surrounding the house, spans approx. 0.85 ha. It borders the terrace on the south side and unites a variety of ambiances: lawns, flowerbeds, trees and ornamental shrubs. It is crossed by a driveway. A large orchard at the end, enclosed by fencing, is currently used as pastureland for a pony. Predominantly facing south, the garden looks out over the surrounding countryside.
The barn, with its exposed roofing framework has a very high ridge. Its roof is covered with Burgundy tiles, whilst its stone walls feature a few windows, framed with brick surrounds. A henhouse stands next to the barn.
A door adjoining the barn opens into a shed that houses the bread oven which, in good working order, has impressive metal doors. Further on is a storage room.
The roof of the woodstore, covered with Burgundy tiles, was very recently redone.
The cellars are accessed from the outside. The main cellar, composed of …
