Owner info

Year Purchased: 1975

About the owner: My parents bought this property when i was 4, and all my childhood memories remain in the walls of this house. I used to live in Paris when i grew up, and we would go to this house every single weekend! After studying biology at the Pasteur Institute (Paris) for several years, I moved with my wife and our two kids to Toronto, where i do research at the University of Toronto.

Why the Owner Chose Chateau-Thierry:
When we bought this house in 1975, my parents fell in love with the location: so quiet, so secluded, yet so close to Paris (1h drive). The house is surrounded by rolling hills of open farmland, and the only noise you hear is birds singing! However, when we bought the house, it was in a very rough shape. The roof was leaking and we had to change 500 square meters of roof tiles!! There was no toilet, no bathroom, no heat, and only the kitchen and a bedroom were 'livable'. After 35 years of renovations, we uncovered the original gem, fully renovated 275 square meters (approx. 3000 sq/ft) of living space, kept the original charm of the old farmhouse, but brought comfort and high-end finish throughout.
