A country house in the midst of a huge garden 90 km from Paris, near to Compiègne, in the French department of Oise.
This land is fertile and yet its history has made it a land of suffering. But although it is effectively near to the sites of large battles during the First World War, it is also a land that has regained appeal courtesy of its beautiful landscapes. The surroundings are crisscrossed with hiking trails that are an invitation to explore the natural treasures and especially the large local forests. It is also possible to take up horse riding at a club in the village or play golf on a course, 15 minutes away by car.
The location is ideal, near to a large town and just 4 km away from a large market town with all shops, whilst the French capital is some 90 km away via the motorway.
The first traces of the village date back to the 12th century as is proved by the period church, spared both from 19th century restoration works, often overly aggressive, and from the 1914-1918 war. The village nestles alongside a river and this property is laid out on the heights, at the end of a road, leading to a wood. The village is very quiet.
Tall, white-painted wooden gates are topped with a crown of ivy and open on to a garden. A caretaker’s cottage, on one side, is completely covered in ivy. A large garden is enclosed by hedges. And lastly, at the end of a gravel courtyard, facing a large lawn, appears a country house laid out lengthwise. Its construction dates from the 19th century. This residence has been used for several purposes such as a house and, during the First World War, as a café.
For the last thirty years, this property has been a holiday home for the members of a Parisian family who have devoted themselves to restoring and enhancing it.
The country houseThis brick and stone, L-shaped country house is topped with a slate roof in accordance with local tradition. A small corner pavilion, with a hip dovecote roof ends the garden facade. The residence spans two levels with an interesting roof which is supported on one side by a gable whilst, at the other end, the roof on the main building is modified with a third slope. The main facade, very different from the more rustic one on the other side, is enhanced with mullioned windows. It above all features a turret, with small tiles, which is almost centred. This turret marks the entrance to the house.
Ground floor
The turret is used as the residence’s main entrance. It provides access to a vestibule leading, on one side, to a large reception room and, on the other, to a dining room as well as everyday living rooms such as a kitchen. This vestibule also houses a wooden stairway leading upstairs.
The large lounge is dominated by a monumental stone fireplace and also, in its central section, by a ceiling almost 4 m high. It is overlooked by a mezzanine. The convivial atmosphere of this room comes from the blend of materials, brick, dressed stone and wood, used for the walls as well as by the presence of a colourful stained-glass window. This lounge is composed of two sections, separated by a few steps: the first exudes a cosy ambiance with a low ceiling, ideal for reading, and the second, more airy courtesy of its high ceiling, faces the fireplace.
The dining room steeped in light via four large openings is of an ideal size and can easily accommodate twelve or so dinner guests. The beams are enhanced by the green-painted joists, making the ceiling appear even higher. One of the doors in the dining room provides access to a kitchen as well as to two bedrooms. The kitchen is an authentic living room with a number of openings.
First floor
The main stairway goes up to a large mezzanine which looks down on to the lounge and provides access to two bedrooms, with a bathroom between these two rooms. A second stairway, going up from …
