A fully restored, 18th century manor house in the heart of the countryside, just two hours from Paris, in Burgundy, in the French department of Yonne.
This property is set between a very old market town dating back to the Gallo-Roman era, with 600 inhabitants, and a historic, medieval town, famous for its many half-timbered houses and its narrow streets, typical of the region. This manor house stands out as its location is near to a medium-sized town with many shops, good schools and an SNCF train station with 1¾-hour links to Paris-Bercy.
After having passed through several different landscapes such as that of the Yonne Valley, with its vine and orchard-covered hillsides, and a rich forest planted with old oak trees, several hundreds of years old, a lane leads to a manor house whose origins date back to the 18th century. This residence has an unobstructed view stretching out over the local countryside. The estate is preceded by an entrance, enhanced with two stone and brick pillars, flanking its spiked wrought iron gates. A gravel driveway makes it possible for cars to park near to the main building. The vast courtyard is enclosed. Farm buildings, surrounding the manor house, are dotted with lawned areas planted with shrubs and flowers as well as several trees. Near to an outbuilding, mosaic tiles enhance the white coping of a sunken swimming pool which is surrounded by a wrought iron fence. A little further away is a well-tended vegetable garden. Beyond the courtyard, a large pond looks out over the countryside. An orchard, planted with several species of apple trees, provides a glimpse of numerous paddocks where ponies and horses blend in with the landscape. A forest pathway completes this pastoral, rustic setting.
The manor houseDesigned as a long, traditional farmhouse with converted attic space, this manor house features numerous openings. The double, large-paned windows are enhanced with solid shutters, composed of tongue and groove planks, reinforced by crossbars and flush-mounted strap hinges. The contour and profile of the facade has been embellished through the use of local materials such as brick and stone, also used for all the surrounds. Some openings still have basket-handle arches, avoiding any architectural monotony. The facade is similarly enhanced with the colour blue. The gable roof, recently redone using local tiles, features some hanging roof dormers, the wrought iron railings of which have been restored. A few bas-reliefs and a wisteria further brighten the facade.
Ground floor
An entrance hall provides access to three adjoining rooms. Firstly, a lounge, featuring a white stone, open-hearth fireplace which enhances the honey-coloured floor tiles. A wide, oak wood ceiling beam crosses the room. Wainscoting, dotted with large panels, lines the lounge. The contemporary colours in no way spoil the original features, on the contrary, they enhance them. An elegant stairway stands out courtesy of its wooden handrail and the cast iron ball adorning the newel post. A wide old door provides access to a dining room, laid with terracotta floor tiles and featuring exposed ceiling joists. And lastly, a third room which could be used for reading or relaxation purposes. Exposed beams and terracotta floor tiles remain the order of the day. A room enhanced with a stone, open-hearth fireplace where Burgundy stone tiles extend the surface area of the hearth. A particularly warm layout which has the particularity of having a door leading out the rear of the house and acting as a genuine lightwell. On one side of the main entrance hall, a good-sized bedroom features exposed ceiling beams and a few mangers, reminiscent of the building’s original vocation. Not far from this room are a shower room, which has been modernised with a walk-in shower, and a laundry room. Here, certain doors made …
