Ref.3744 : French property for sale 1 hour from Paris, in Eure department.
The property is located in the south of the department of Eure, bordering the departments of Orne and Eure et Loir. Located in the heart of a small town in the countryside, it benefits from the immediate proximity of a town of some 10,000 souls where all services and shops are present. Numerous tourist, cultural and sports activities animate the local life (castles, hiking, forests, horseback riding, hunting, golf, acrobatics…).
The road and rail infrastructures make the access to the capital fast and easy which makes this property a perfect second home. Sheltered by the surrounding walls, nothing can disturb the silence and beauty of a preserved countryside.

“Le Temple d’amour” Beautiful stone building with colonnades perched on a rocky peak, a kind of “little VIIIth folly” decorated with a small waterfall and overhanging the grasslands and the large vegetable garden. (ISMH*).
Former Quick tennis court (out of service).
* listed on the Supplementary Inventory of Historical Monuments.
On the village side, the property is surrounded by 1.80m high stone walls giving it total independence and security.
No visual, sound or olfactory nuisance disturbs this perfectly balanced pleasure park in its design. The view is thus preserved by its alternation of wooded areas and meadows magnificently decorated with remarkable sites.
Thus, below the orangery is the “Grand Potager”, a perfect replica of the King’s kitchen garden in Versailles, which an ISMH inscription wished to protect. In the middle of this immense cultivable space of 2.47 acres (1 hectare) remains an ancient central basin, formerly fed underground by the river Avre, a technical feat testifying to the ingenuity of the builders of the Enlightenment.
In the extension of the vegetable garden remains a superb double stone staircase (ISMH) dating from 1746, in perfect state of conservation.
An imposing avenue of linden trees heads towards the property, while the eye is inevitably drawn to an impressive “pile of rocks” whose history ensures that they came from Fontainebleau.
Their skillfully orchestrated stacking makes it a magical “cave” where all generations have one day found themselves for undoubtedly very diverse reasons. This exceptional place is also listed ISMH.
Many species of trees color this park (beech, lime, pine, chestnut, oak, Japanese acacia) arranged in the English style with a total area of about 30.39 acres ( 12.30 ha) in one piece.
