A 118 m² flat in an 18th century mansion house,
with a cellar and parking space, in Burgundy’s Beaune
Beaune, COTE-D'OR burgundy 21200 FR

Location

Set in the historic centre of Beaune, this flat is 10 minutes from slip roads for the A6 motorway, a crossroads providing links to Paris or Geneva in 2½ hours and Lyon airport in 1½ hours. The train station is just a 10-minute walk, as are numerous food shops, markets, restaurants and hotels. Beaune aerodrome, a 15-minute drive away, is open to civil aircraft. The town, in the heart of the “Climates of Burgundy” (Burgundy vineyards), classified on the UNESCO World Heritage List, acts as the Burgundy wine capital. Its world renown is also based on the wine auction held by the Hospices every third Sunday in November.

Description

The street facades represent a succession of buildings, the walls of which are interspersed with carriage gates and discreet entrance doors. Set slightly back, the main entrance door links two buildings, with different heights and roof dormers, unified by a stone-coloured facade. Three steps go up into the building’s vestibule, featuring exposed Burgundy stone block walls and a travertine floor. Winding around its stairwell, a stone stairway, embellished with refined, wrought iron railings topped with a wooden handrail, goes up to the first floor and its landing, giving access to this flat. The luminosity provided by a lightwell enhances the beauty of the exposed stone walls and the elegance of the stairway which appears to pirouette.
This flat can also be reached via its own private lift to be found in the vestibule of the mansion house’s first interior courtyard.
