An 18th century house and its 7,000 m² of parklands just two hours from Paris.
This old, 290 m² mill, redesigned in the 1950’s, stands in a village with a very good tourist trade in the midst of the Burgundy region. The village still has all local shops. A train station with links to Paris-Austerlitz is not far away.
The village has specialised in pottery since the 14th century. A stoneware museum exhibits traditional and contemporary works by highlighting the creations of Jean-Carries, an innovator in the world of pottery, notably via his sculptural compositions. The house faces a Renaissance style chateau, reconstructed in 1530 by Antoine-de-Rochechouart, chamberlain to King François 1st. The site of the mill is, therefore, listed.
A country lane goes for several kilometres through an immense oak forest. Once in the village, a bridge crosses the river, La-Vrille, which flows alongside the old mill. This river is a right-bank tributary of the river Loire. The house is there, surrounded by abundant vegetation. The nearby Renaissance chateau keeps an eye on its old mill.
Double wooden gates open on to a driveway that leads to an old barn, where cars are now parked, and then to parklands, planted with trees over a hundred years old and dotted with various species of flowers. The countryside in the immediate vicinity of the residence is very English and pastoral. Stone grinding wheels rest on the grass as a reminder of this construction’s original vocation. The garden also includes a well-laid out vegetable garden. A stone table and chairs are set out near to the house, by the side of the river.
The millThis 18th century mill was constructed over a cellar and a stable. The residence stands out courtesy of its roof which is an unusual one for the region as it features a slate break adjoining a top roof, covered with traditional tiles made in the village. Its quoins and the framing around its openings feature alternating brick and ironstone, both local materials. The window sills are made of white limestone. The small-paned openings on the ground floor are protected by solid wooden shutters. The roof dormers, under curved pediments, are highly decorative. The rendered facades contribute to the interesting contrasts between materials and colours.
A small, road-side garden precedes the residence. A little flight of stone steps leads from there down to the river, La-Vrille. It provides access to the outbuilding which once housed the mill’s wheel. On one side of the house, two original diamond-shaped openings, featuring brick moulding, face the main driveway.
Base level
An old stable, spanning approx. 32 m², is still in its original condition. The remainder of this level comprises several small wine cellars and machine rooms. The ceiling, covered with tiles signed by the local craftsman, provides a certain originality.
Ground floor
The front door opens directly into a large reception room spanning approx. 70 m². It is illuminated via numerous openings on the ground and first floors courtesy of its mezzanine floor. Large, light-beige, sandstone tiles cover the floor. Enlarged by the mezzanine, this area is used as a lounge and dining room. All the windows, some of which are double glazed, look out over the verdant surroundings. The ceiling is adorned with old beams on the dining room side. An impressive fireplace, with a closed-hearth fire that could be removed, features a wooden mantel and Burgundy stone jambs. Stone paving extends the hearth in front of the fireplace. The splayed stricture is composed of local brick. A coat-of-arms can be seen on the cast iron fireback. It bears “three cocks laid out two and one” supported by two heraldic lions. The coat-of-arms is set on two French marshal’s batons and topped with a Marquis’ crown. The fireplace takes pride of place …
