Property Melun (77)

An 1880 residence and its outbuildings on more than 4 ha of land near to Vaux-le-Vicomte Palace.
Less than an hour’s drive from Paris. 10 minutes from a train station with 50-minute links to the French capital, which can also be reached in 30 minutes via suburban “transilien” trains from Melun some 12 km away. All shops are but 5 minutes away.
This property is part of a hamlet in the Brie region, surrounded by countryside featuring a succession of fields, planted with various cereal crops, mixed with forest tracts.
The hamlet is reached via a little road crossing the fields. The plot is closed on one side by a building from an old neighbouring farm and is almost entirely surrounded by fields for as far as the eye can see.
Heavy metal gates, supported on two brick pillars, open on to a long, paved drive, lined with chestnut trees. The garden, on either side, is dotted with rose bushes. A partially walled vegetable garden is next to an orchard. A wooded section conceals a pond. The residence, at the end of the drive, is flanked on both sides by an outbuilding converted into a house as well as a carport.
The biggest wooded section, including a tennis court, extends behind the residence.
