A long, traditional farmhouse in the midst of a village
just a few minutes from Fontainebleau
Fontainebleau, SEINE-ET-MARNE ile-de-france 77300 FR

Location

The village, some 10 minutes from Fontainebleau, has direct access to the A6 motorway, putting Paris just 45 minutes away. All local shops (grocery/butchery/wine merchant, bakery, chemist) are within walking distance from the house, as well as restaurants, a school and a health centre, with physiotherapists and district nurses. It also has all the advantages of the neighbouring royal town: an internationally renowned palace, a forest estate, a golf course and numerous show jumping events.

Description

This property is laid out around a rectangular, paved courtyard. A high stone wall, protecting the buildings from the street, features central, remote-controlled, wooden gates, including a pedestrian gate and providing access to vehicles. The gable of the main house, standing on one side, faces the road. A small annexe building stands on the other side. Another building, set at right angles a little further on, closes the courtyard. This latter building comprises a second annexe house and a passageway, giving access to a walled garden, laid out in front of the opposite facade.

The long, traditional farmhouse

The stone walls, with their numerous small-paned windows and French windows, are covered with white rendering. The roof, covered with local tiles, features hanging dormers with hip roofs. Spanning approx. 225 m² of living space, the farmhouse is built over a vaulted wine cellar.


Ground floor
The entrance hall, under a cathedral ceiling, houses the main stairway, going upstairs. Said hall provides access to a laundry room, a toilet and a vast, double room with, on one side, a kitchen and an eating area, enhanced with a bread oven. An area on the other side is laid out as a dining room, with a white stone Louis XV style fireplace. A second stairway leads to a lounge. The floors are covered with old terracotta tiles; one section of the walls features exposed stone; exposed ceiling beams. This level is extended by a spacious garage.
First floor
A second stairway gives direct access to a lounge. This vast room is laid out under an exposed roofing framework and is enhanced with an impressive, white stone fireplace. A door opens into a bedroom, with a wardrobe and a shower room. The main stairway goes up to a corridor, leading to a bedroom, a bathroom, a toilet and a small room.

The first annexe house

The ground floor comprises a lounge and a shower room, with a toilet. A spiral stairway goes up to a bedroom on the first floor. It spans a total of approx. 50 m² of living space.

The second annexe house

The ground floor comprises a lounge, where a large picture window opens on to the garden, a kitchen area and a shower room, with a toilet, as well as a stairway going up to a large bedroom on a mezzanine. It spans a total of approx. 60 m² of living space.

Our opinion

Near to Paris, this property is characteristic of the rural building heritage to be found in the local area. Its location, in the midst of the village, puts the shops within easy walking distance. A little further on down the street, a farm sells its produce direct to customers. In such a natural, cultural, French and international setting, with not only the palace, but also INSEAD, “The Business School for the World”, the structuring of the property as a main residence, with smaller annexe houses, has many advantages. Although a pleasant house to live in, it could also become a rental property.
