a family house dating from 1850 with outbuildings
In the Hauts-de-France, between the French Vexin and Oise-Pays de France Regional Nature Parks, the region was first part of Gallia Belgica and then, after the death of Clovis, became part of the Kingdom of Paris. Until the 18th century, this vast territory was composed of several very different provinces. Its geographical, economic and cultural diversity still typifies the region today. The village, surrounded by fields and woodlands, offers a green and quiet environment. It is only 50 km from the heart of Paris via the A16/A15 motorways and 50 minutes by train. The historic town of Beauvais is about 30 km away and Roissy-Charles-de-Gaulle airport about 50 km. All amenities can be reached within a few minutes including a nursery school and a primary school.
Beyond the garden, the entrance features an original cement tile floor and serves several rooms on the ground floor. A staircase with a wrought iron railing leads up to the upper floors, which house five bedrooms and a shower room. A second bathroom could easily be created in one of the rooms awaiting conversion on the top floor. All the door and window frames are new. First a farmhouse, then a factory, between street and garden, the house has been transformed over the years to become the residence it is today.
A room with a made to measure bookcase in light oak and a toilet with a hand basin. There follow in a row a study with a fireplace featuring a black and white marble mantelpiece and a living room with a fireplace. The floors are either parquet or stone paved. A large and bright U-shaped kitchen opens onto the garden. Its floor combines parquet and cement tiles, the latter being identical to those in the entrance hall. A second living room - or future dining room - with a height of over 6 m under the apex, has an industrial spirit that illustrates the purpose of the place when the farm was transformed into a small factory in the middle of the 19th century. This room is notable for its exposed beams and its high wall partly in stone drawing the eye to the mezzanine. The latter can be reached either via a period spiral staircase or via the bedroom floor. The room and the mezzanine still need to be decorated and furnished.
The wooden staircase leads to a landing serving the bedrooms. The first room overlooks both the street and the garden and has a fireplace. There follow three bedrooms in a row, each with a fireplace. A shower room and a toilet with hand basin complete this level. Each of the bedrooms can be reached via a corridor leading to the mezzanine. It offers a view down to the ground floor reception room, which can be reached via the spiral staircase.
The staircase leads up to the exposed roof structure. This is an extensive space in which a large, fully insulated room has already been fitted out. Following on from here are a convertible attic and a last room with character.
It is divided into two distinct parts and is large enough to be fully enjoyed without major maintenance. Beds of fragrant roses add colour to the grounds, an old hutch and two 19th century pigsties made of local brick and tile lend an authentic atmosphere to the garden. An old brick staircase leads to the second part: another garden, as if suspended, with its future vegetable plots, its little shed and a stretch of lawn.
The outbuilding, all in exposed brick, houses the open garage, the workshop with electricity, the former stable and a large shed. A staircase leads to an attic under the roof, which is in a good state of repair, and to a second workshop.
Over time, the old farmhouse has become a house with character, harmonious proportions and an intact spirit. Thanks to its harmonious organisation, between the layout of the rooms and the garden which calls for large tables, it exudes a provincial authenticity, with the right level of simplicity. The different living areas are perfect for entertainment, allowing complete freedom of movement from one space to another. Some improvements will be necessary to restore all their glory to the beautiful volumes of both the barn and the house. The promise of authentic country family life.
