This 60-acre preserved and unconstructible property is part of the Oise-Pays de France regional natural park. Two 18th century wings flank this 14th century mansion, built by a river, which provides close to 600 sq m on three levels and various mid-levels. The ground floor houses a kitchen and a dining room. On the first floor, a couple of living rooms open on the terrace, while seven bedrooms occupy the upper floor. Says the Marc Foujols agency: “This atypical property, admirably preserved, has a wide clearance and vast rooms facing the park. It can easily be converted into a luxury B&B.” Several outbuildings include a home cinema in the former barn and a keeper’s house. A rose garden and a swimming pool adjacent are bordered by two beautiful lawns. Very quiet, in a secluded area near a 19th century castle and a windmill, the property is only a 5-min drive from Chantilly.
