An 18th century chateau, divided into 8 self-contained flats,
some 1.3 hours from Paris in the Oise department
Saint-Just-en-Chaussée, OISE picardy 60130 FR

Location

The chateau stands in the centre of a small village, 10 minutes by car from a bustling town, with shops and a cinema. Near to slip roads for the A1 motorway, 92 km from Paris, 70 km from Charles-de-Gaulle airport. The village is equidistant from Beauvais and Compiègne.

Description

In the 16th century, this estate belonged to the Guillebon family who kept it until the middle of the 18th century. It was then sold by auction and purchased by a rich noble family from Paris. Despite the trials and tribulations of the French Revolution, it stayed in this same family from 1750 until the late 1960’s. Although this chateau stands in the midst of the village, once on the property, the parklands spanning more than a hectare are omnipresent with, on the east side, a view over the church belltower.

The chateau

This building reflects a classical design. Constructed using stone from Saint-Maximin, it is distinctive in that it has an unusually long facade, with no less than sixteen bays. However, its appearance is neither monotonous nor boring as the architect has created an elegant layout. On the garden side, a central building with four bays protrudes very slightly and is topped with a large hipped roof. The facade is extended by wings which, topped with Mansard style roofs, adjoin tall, narrow corner pavilions that protrude. The facade on the entrance courtyard side is similar but its two central bays are set under a triangular pediment featuring a motif from the Restoration era. The length of the buildings is impressive but their height remains modest, spanning three levels, including an attic floor. There is no decoration, with the exception of a string course between the two levels. With a discreet projection and straight, inward-opening windows, this building most definitely reflects the Louis XVI style. Inside, eight flats take up the entire amount of living space. They span between 78 and 194 m² with 2 to 6 bedrooms. They have all be rehabilitated with modern-day home comforts and new owners can move in straightaway.


Ground floor
The building is accessed via a through vestibule which is steeped in daylight. A stone stairway stands out courtesy of its wrought iron railings decorated with stylised scrolls. The floor is paved with stone tiles, laid in a chessboard pattern with black inlaid decoration. This entrance hall provides access to a total of five flats: two on the ground floor and three on the upper floors, reached via the main stairway. Also on the ground floor, another three flats have various means of entry: one via a door opening directly from the garden and the two others via a side entrance. Each flat has view over the parklands which vary in accordance with the floor and the layout of each home.
First floor
This level is taken up by three flats. They are all different, but all span surface areas suitable for family homes in accordance with the layout of the old rooms in the chateau. As on the ground floor, they are all through flats and are, therefore, extremely bright.
Second floor
This level comprises two flats, one of which is the upper level of a 2-storey flat laid out on the first floor.

The outbuildings

Each flat has its own cellar, storage area and parking spaces. There is also a bicycle lock-up.

The parklands

Spanning approx. one hectare and almost entirely enclosed by walls, the parklands have been planted so as to create pastoral areas. Varying species of centuries-old trees provide a verdant setting in the centre of the village. A large lawn enhances the chateau’s long south facade. The parklands are a communal area to be used by all the future tenants of the flats. They form an ideal place for getting together with friends of a weekend and for the children living in the chateau to play together after school.

Our opinion

This property, set between Beauvais and Compiègne, near to the industrial area around Charles-de-Gaulle airport and within easy reach of Paris, could be an alternative for a property investor seeking to move away from urban areas (and Paris in particular), whilst still having economic generators nearby. The potential for tenants for the chateau’s eight flats is very real; the target clientele being families who appreciate old stone and work in the region. This is therefore a guarantee of a reliable investment with rental income continuity.
