On the edge of a river in a rural setting, on the western boundary of the Gatinais Nature Park, this delightful XIXth C. Manoir is in a hamlet near a village with all amenities and has retained many period features. Orchard. Vegetable Garden. Also an 18th C. Farmhouse.

Built at the end of the XIXth Century, the Manoir and its original buildings currently converted into a house, combine to offer about 140m2 of habitable space comprising:
Raised Ground Floor: Hallway off which to the left is a kitchen, staircase, boudoir and, in the tower, a library/study. To the right is a dining room with a large fireplace and a living room. Oak parquet floorts and terracotta tiles. An oak staircase with wrought iron banister rails and a walnut wood hand rail leads upstairs.
First Floor; A small landing off which are four bedrooms and a bathroom with W.C. in the tower.
Basement: A large vaulted wine cellar, a linen room, bathroom W.C. and a storage room with cupboards.
The equipment room is in the tower with an exterior access.

The main dwelling consists of a square building with a round turret. The outside walls are of stone and rendered stone. The cornerstones and the windows of various shapes are decorated with mouldings and iron cast railings. The main roof is covered with small old tiles. Five steps leads to a stone porch. The facade is fitted with two identical doors and protected by a rounded glass canopy. One door leads to the kitchen and the other one to the hallway. To the rear of the house, a terrace also protected by a large glass canopy can be accessed from the hallway, the living room and the boudoir.

An XVIII C. Farmhouse of approx 120m2 has also been restored and consists of a living room, dining room with open kitchen, three bedrooms, bathrooms and W.C. as well as an independent studio. The farmhouse is ideal to use as a guest house for family or friends.
Five sheds or troglodytic cellars from 5 - 20m2 are to be found in a row in front of the house.

The grounds are enclosed and planted with various trees - hundred year old oaks, willows, poplars, red beech ash, whilst a beautifully kept orchard and vegetable garden complete the picture. Set in an exceptional protected and verdant area ( national heritage site) the land slopes gently away down to the edge of the river.

In its idyllic rural setting in an attractive park, bordered by a river, the Manoir has kept it authenticity. The original decorative features have been preserved and include stained glass windows, wood panelling, mouldings, rosettes, carved wooden mantelpiece.

Only one hour from Paris, this property is ideal as a permanent or secondary residence for Parisians.
