Description

Nestled on the right bank of the Seine among the Hautil hills at the southern limit of the Vexin region, this beautiful historical residence is part of a village that also includes an island on the river. Tucked away in verdant surroundings, this 18th century hunting lodge was extended at the turn of the 19th century. The two wings of the Bagatelle-style pavilion reach around the rotunda, forming the main courtyard accessible from the road through a gate that constitutes the main entrance to the pavilion. To the right, a small theatre leads to a small garden and its grotto (with its own independent entrance from the road). To the left, a small courtyard separates the main residence from the outbuildings (caretaker's house and guest house). A separate entrance to the outbuildings could be added. Offering a total floor area of approximately 1,900 sqm, the buildings have been listed as historic monuments since 1945. The 4 hectares of private grounds (also listed) offer private access to the Seine in addition to a farm, a greenhouse, a swimming pool and a tennis court. Many of the property's authentic and original features have been preserved, including parquet flooring, Versailles parquet flooring, paving stones, earthenware tiles, fireplaces, mouldings and wooden panels. It remains in need of certain renovation words. The property is 40 minutes from Paris via the A13 or A14 motorways. The local town is served by the D190 road (linking Poissy to Saint Germain en Laye) and a railway station on the Paris-Saint-Lazare mainline.
