Description

Just a few minutes from Auxerre, a small, 19th century chate

In a historic town, not far from Auxerre, stands a large residence, 180 km from. This chateau is close to all amenities required on a daily basis and just a few minutes from a train station with links to Paris-Gare-de-Lyon. The river Yonne, flowing alongside the town, is crossed by a listed, 18th century bridge, featuring two arches. The exterior of its parapet is adorned with a Greek style frieze. This property stands in a historic town which was once known for its monastery. In fact, through their manual labour, notably on the land, the monks were tasked with supplying food to the large neighbouring town of Auxerre. Remote-controlled, double, wrought gates open on to a wide drive that leads to the chateau standing in its parklands, planted with various species of trees over a hundred years old, rows of beautifully kept boxwood as well as decoratively trimmed shrubs and dotted with benches. Two stone pillars mark a second, more discreet entrance. On either side stand outbuildings, with the main house straight in front. The gravel-covered ground is ideal for parking cars. On one side of the chateau, an old bridge spans a stream, bordered by lush vegetation. An old well and a small ivy-covered shed embellish the pastoral appearance of the property. A swimming pool looks out over the parklands. On the other side of the residence, another entrance, opening via double gates, provides access to this same setting and a house with its own garage.
