A large hunting estate composed of woods, marshland and farmland including an elegant, 19th century manor house and vast outbuildings.
This estate is on the edge of rich farmland plains that constitute a significant part of its surface area. The rest is taken up by marshland and woods, delimited by a river, the nonchalant course of which gives rise to a vast complex of marshland and wet meadows all along its length.
A lively town, 23 km away, has all administrative amenities, shops and schools. The train station boasts numerous daily links to Paris.
The estate spans a total surface area of 216 ha, including 94 ha of farmland (BPS - Basic Payment Scheme) and 118 ha of woods, moorland, lakes and marshland. All of the grounds are developed and exploited, with priority being given to the running of a commercial hunting activity, predominantly devoted to feathered game.
Farm buildings for the farming activity and a large hunting lodge, decorated in a warm, convivial manner, can accommodate up to 45 guests. A professional kitchen makes it possible to prepare good quality meals, much appreciated by a clientele, for the most part regular customers. Other spacious rooms are used for the organisation of hunts and, of course, for the traditional display of the hunters kill at the end of day.
A small, self-contained house provides accommodation for a couple working on the estate.
A luxurious, comfortable manor house, constructed in the 19th century, constitutes the owners home. It is surrounded by wooded parklands that isolate the farm buildings and the hunting lodge. One of its facades looks out over the surrounding countryside with a view of a large parterre, laid to lawn, and beyond to a canal-type lake, extending into the estates marshland.
The manor houseThis mansion bears the outstanding mark of its construction in the late 19th century. The building spans three levels, two of which are under the rafters. The lower level extends on each of its sides to form two low wings, set slightly back and simply topped with a terrace bordered by a stone balustrade.
The building is constructed entirely from red brick. The lower sections are built from roughly dressed stone. The same rustic finish is used for the toothed quoins on the four corners of the main building and those of the two, slightly set back wings. All the windows of the main building are topped with a purely decorative relieving arch.
Both facades feature five roof dormers, set in the gable roof. These comprise the windows on the second level which include two large, tall roof dormers with rectangular pediments.
The facade of the main building facing the countryside, as well as each of the two wings gables, has steps providing access either to the central vestibule, or to the rooms in both wings. The facade overlooking the parklands has a protruding porch, preceded by steps sheltered by the eaves.
The steps on the facade facing the countryside provide access to a wide corridor, leading to all the rooms on the ground floor. The decor is not only a good example of the neo-gothic style but also a prelude to that to be found throughout the residence with wainscoting featuring linenfold panels, oak wood door surrounds topped with an open gable, a ceiling with decorative wooden ribbing and cement floor tiles with polychrome motifs.
At the end of the corridor, a little chapel is also archetypical of this style, with panelling, triangular arched windows, filled with stained-glass, separated by a decor of semi-circular vaults, supported on little wooden columns, and wall-covering featuring fleur-de-lis in the spaces thus created.
Similarly, the library which opens into the south-west entrance hall, has even more heavily marked neo-gothic decor with an exceptional fireplace, made of wood like the panelling, with columns, ...
