An outstanding, 86 ha estate, with a large, luxurious home, equestrian facilities and numerous outbuildings, in the midst of the Sologne region.
2 hours from Paris and 45 minutes from Orléans.
In the midst of the network of villages typical of the area known as Sologne-des-Etangs, the nearest shops, including a bakery and a grocery, are less than a 5-minute car drive away.
The nearest town is 15 minutes away by car and has all amenities such as shops, schools and motorway slip roads.
A gateway appears 4 km outside of the market town. It opens on to a stone-lined driveway going through an oak wood for some 300 m. This is the estates main entrance, leading to the large, luxurious home. Another two entrances along this road provide independent access to other houses on the estate.
The driveway continues as far as parklands, planted with outstanding oak, sequoia and cedar trees, over a hundred years old.
On one side, a large luxurious home, constructed on an old feudal motte, dominates meadows and a lake on a lower level. On the other side are an independent guest house known as the pavilion, an enclosed, protected swimming pool, buildings used for garage purposes and an old, fully restored barn used as a function room.
Once passed the barn, three independent buildings form a courtyard with two houses as well as their private gardens and spa baths on the north and west sides. One of these houses also has a swimming pool. A building on the south side comprises two independent dwellings and recent stables. About a hundred metres away, a building resembling stalls was recently constructed for equipment storage and workshop purposes.
Further afield stretch grasslands, paddocks, enclosed by rail fencing, and woods featuring bridle paths.
The large, luxurious homeThe origins of this large, luxurious home, constructed on a promontory dominating the north section of the property, date back to the 16th century. It was, at this time, a hunting lodge. The main building, spanning three levels including an attic floor, was redesigned and extended in the 19th century by adding to its ends two symmetrical pavilions, only one of which is still in existence. This pavilion is constructed in the same style as the initial building with two levels, rendered facades, a hip, slate roof, featuring bulls eye windows, as well as dressed stone jambs and quoins.
The main entrance is in the centre of the facade, with three steps leading to a vestibule, the floor of which is covered with flagstones. On one side, the main stairway goes to the residences two upper floors. On the other side are a cloakroom and a toilet. Further on, on the right-hand side, a door opens into the main, L-shaped lounge. Its windows overlook meadows, with the lake in the distance, on one side and the parklands on the other. A stone fireplace is in good working order; its parquet flooring is currently covered with carpet.
Opposite the lounge, still reached via the vestibule, are a little lounge and a dining room. The floor in the latter is covered with terracotta tiles. A door leads to a kitchen which can also be reached from the outside via a little canopy on the south gable wall.
In addition to the main stairway, there is another stairway in the dining room which goes up to the first floor of the building.
The main, wooden stairway is steeped in light courtesy of wide, small-paned windows. The first floor comprises a vast landing leading, on one side, to a linen room, a bedroom and an adjoining bathroom. Straight on are two bedrooms, one with a shower room and the other a bathroom.
This level in the east pavilion, reached via the second stairway, was recently fully renovated. It includes three bedrooms, a bathroom and a toilet. A hall area links this level to the main building via one of the ...
