Located only 1 hour 10 minutes from Paris, this magnificent 19th century waterfront mansion sits discreetly alongside its hanging English garden overlooking the Yonne valley. The natural grounds present a remarkable heritage of many hundred-year-old trees, conferring on the site a sense of majesty and serenity. Pierre de Gondi Cardinal de Retz donated the site to the Capuchins in 1608; the convent was destroyed in 1791, and a wealthy Parisian built this south-facing residence in 1838, in accordance with the architectural tastes of the day in the capital. The pure lines of its windows project us into the surrounding countryside. The harmonious interior architecture, the ground floor reception rooms, the panoramic views and the pastel colors bring every flicker of light to life. Its elevator, its bathrooms and its energy performance make it the ideal main residence or holiday home. Thanks to its two levels of reception rooms at garden level and its potential for extension, the property could also be developed for business use (tourism or otherwise). Located in Burgundy, on the outskirts of Puisaye and the Othe forest, it presents delightful rural surroundings that are perfectly conducive to relaxation. A sumptuous property that will delight all lovers of hunting, sport and nature. Close to a helipad.
