The second home market is especially popular with Parisians looking for green spaces. This chateau is located one hour from the capital and 30 minutes from Charles de Gaulle airport and Marne-la-Vallee, in the heart of Farrides, an old village in Seine-et-Marne. Its bakery, mini market and café give it a lively spirit. The catering restaurant and newsagent are especially appreciated by the nearly 2,000 residents of the conglomerate.
Built at the end of the 18th century under the management of the Board of Directors, this 300 square meter house has belonged to the same family since its construction. There is also an outbuilding of 50 square meters. The property is located on the edge of the village. The entrance is via a street overlooking the village while the back of the house overlooks the surrounding countryside. It was built in the middle of a walled garden. The house is on three levels.
The ground floor opens onto a stone vestibule with a large staircase decorated with a cast-iron column. It serves all reception rooms. To the right is a large living room that infuses a 1950s vibe with a brick fireplace. On the left, the classic-style dining room can accommodate more than ten guests. In the annex there is a kitchen with direct access to the dining room and windows overlooking the garden.
On the first floor, a black and white square floor landing provides access to four bedrooms and two bathrooms. The two master bedrooms are equipped with a fireplace. On the last level, a central landing in old floor tiles serves three additional bedrooms and a bathroom. Laundry room complements the floor.
On the right side of the property, a large garage can accommodate three cars and serve as a shed. On the left, shelter is provided for gardening equipment.
A lush garden surrounds the house with century-old trees adding a slightly more intimate atmosphere than shrubs. To the right, a yew decorated with topiary and a small oblong grass reminds us of a French garden. In the depth, a pebbly terrace runs the length of the property and faces a large garden. The garden was designed by Jacques Graeber, a landscape architect in the 1930s, designer among others of the Trocadéro Gardens in Paris.
