This prestigious country house estate (27,167 m2) consists of an elegant central mansion (main house) with an adjoining wing and a separate building, all arranged around a courtyard with a large walled garden and a substantial plot of agricultural land (23,187 m2).
The ancient farm buildings have been lovingly restored and converted into a rental apartment complex (7 apartments) and events venue (5 studios/workshops). Together with a rented-out central mansion they provide an easy-to-operate and highly profitable business and income (currently - about 55,000 Euros per annum). Read more ...
This superb property is ideally located only 6 km (4 miles) off the main road midway between the major cities of Soissons (18 km) and Chateau-Thierry (20 km), where one can find railway stations with direct high-speed trains to Paris and other major destinations, as well as hospitals, large supermarkets and all other amenities.
Both central Paris (90 km/56 miles) and Charles de Gaulle airport (68 km/43 miles) are reached by car within an hour and Disneyland (Paris) - in 45 minutes. Calais is 222 km/138 miles away.
However, the nearest supermarkets, bakeries, cafes, schools, doctors, petrol stations, banks etc. are located only 5 km away at the town of Fere-en-Tardenois, famous for its 12th century chateau.
Historically, the estate is located on the actual site of the 2nd Battle of the Marne (15 July-6 August 1918) with the front line running just in front of the gates. During the battle the estate’s ancient main house was destroyed and later re-built by Italians in 1921.
Close to the village there is the famous monument “Les Fantômes” by Paul Landowski to the French soldiers killed in this battle (this French architect also created the world-famous statue of “Christ the Redeemer” in Rio de Janeiro).
During World War II the area was occupied by the Germans and the main house was used as a German Infirmary. After the war the estate reverted to its original purpose – farming, until 1984 when the current owners completely restored the main house, and in 2009 converted the old barns into self-catering rental apartments and events space.
