For Sale: Louis XIII style Château near Paris

This exceptional property from 1860, which is located near Paris and in the heart of the Juine Valley area of the Essonne, consists of a breathtaking residence situated in a park measuring 4 hectares which is full of flowers and trees.

The property is in fact an old hereditary fief. The residence is reached via a driveway lined with lime trees which were planted 3 centuries before by a hydraulic engineer of king Louis XIV. You’re going to be captivated by this residence in the style of Louis XIII thanks to the refined atmosphere of its French-style sitting rooms: mosaics, woodwork, fireplaces and wooden floors which contribute to a balanced subtlety combining cosiness and intimacy.

A driveway lined with 300-year-old lime trees leads to the house and ends at the square in front of the property which sits in the middle of woods and tended gardens, with a branch of the river Juine crossing it, as well as a beautiful view of the small private lake.

The outbuildings won’t leave you indifferent: an orangery measuring about 70 m² with a vaulted cellar, a chapel, a greenhouse with an orchard and a small mill on the side of a lovely bridge, as well as other outbuildings which are spread over the estate.

Located in a nice and much-appreciated town, this Louis XIII style château is comprised of 28 rooms on 5 levels and about 1100 m², with attics and a full basement that is divided into 3 workshops and 2 cellars, as well as plant rooms.
