About the Property

Charming Remodeled Stone Country House And Guest House 1 Hour From Paris

This charming property of 1.2 hectares with garden and orchard with two houses is located northeast of Paris in a small village about 1 hour from Paris. The property has 2 houses, a more formal main house and a completely renovated house for 6 people, each with its own kitchen. There are a total of 7 rooms ideal for family reunions, but also quite intimate for a single couple. The surrounding countryside - large 14th C farms and immense forests "dominial" - is ideal for peace and quiet but also for cycling in the forest, hiking and horseback riding. Hire of horses and forest walks and lessons for children and adults can easily be arranged. Bikes are available on site.
Although you are close to Paris, you are in the real French countryside.
The house consists of two wings separated by a fully renovated kitchen with 2 ovens, a quality restaurant stove, and dishwasher.
The house has been remodeled to keep as much character as possible of the French houses of the 19th and 18th century, There are many interior stone walls apparent. There are 2 very large fireplaces, one in the formal dining room and one in the living room. For summer days or warm evenings outside, you can relax with a glass of wine in one of the original caves. In winter or autumn or spring, the house has central heating with authentic radiators that can be adjusted for each room.
The house and property is located just below a huge plain of several kms. This plain is crossed by small roads, some of which date back to Roman times, which is absolutely ideal for cycling. Each road can take you to a village below. The stone farms and stone barns date back to the 14th and 13th centuries. The region is rich in the history of modern and ancient France. For example the first Gallic king received the possession of France from the Roman prosecutor in the now industrial town of Soissons at 20 km from the house. Nearby is also the railway car where the armistice was signed in the city of Compiègne, where there is a magnificent imperial palace and a park by LeNotre but also many other forts to visit than the on-site keeper Can guide you.

Cette charmante propriété de 1,2 hectares avec jardin et verger avec deux maisons est située au nord-est de Paris dans un petit village à environ 1 heure de Paris. La propriété a 2 maisons, une maison principale plus formelle et une maison entièrement rénové pour 6 personnes, chacun avec sa propre cuisine. Il ya un total de 7 chambres idéales pour des réunion de familles, mais aussi assez intime pour un couple seul. La campagne environnante - grandes fermes 14e C et immenses forêts "dominial" - est idéal pour le calme et la tranquillité mais aussi pour faire des balades à vélo en forêt, la randonnée et l'équitation. Location de chevaux et de promenades en forêt et les leçons pour les enfants et les adultes peuvent facilement être organisés. Les vélos sont à votre disposition sur place.
Bien que vous soyez proche de Paris, vous êtes dans la vraie campagne française.
La maison se compose de deux ailes séparées par une cuisine entièrement rénové avec 2 fours, un poêle de qualité restaurant, et lave-vaisselle.
La maison a été remodelée pour garder autant que possible du caractère des maisons français du 19ème et 18ème siècle, par ex. Il ya beaucoup de murs intérieurs en pierre apparente. Il ya 2 très grandes cheminées, une dans la salle à manger formelle et une dans le salon. Pour les journées d'été ou les soirées chaudes à l'extérieur, vous pourrez vous détendre avec un verre de vin dans l'une des grottes originales. En hiver ou en automne ou au printemps, la maison a le chauffage central avec radiateurs authentiques qui peuvent être ajustés pour chaque chambre.
La maison et la propriété est située juste au-dessous d'une immense plaine de plusieurs kms. Cette plaine est traversée par de petites routes, dont certaines remontent à l'époque romaine, ce qui est absolument idéal pour le vélo. Chaque route peut vous emmener dans un village ci-dessous. Les fermes en pierre et les granges en pierre remontent aux 14ème et 13ème siècles. La région est riche en histoire de la France moderne et ancienne. Par exemple le premier roi gaulois a reçu la possession de la France du procureur romain dans la ville maintenant industrielle de Soissons à 20 km de la maison. A proximité se trouve également la voiture de chemin de fer où l'armistice a été signé dans la ville de Compiègne, où il ya un magnifique palais impérial et un parc par LeNotre mais aussi beaucoup d'autres forts à visiter que le gardien sur place pourra vous orienter.

Soucy is a tiny village of 100 people with its church on the site of a 7th C Merovingian (early Christian) place of worship. It is on the border of the Oise and its climate is more like the Oise and Paris region than northern France. The region around the house is rich in French history and WWI history and is dotted with public and private chateaux and a 20km long in and outdoor museum dedicated to the events of WWI.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: I am a northern California physician who fell in love with the French countryside many years ago.

Why the Owner Chose Soucy, France:
I wanted a vacation house in the countryside outside of Paris, so that I could be able to do the things I love to do daily: antiquing, shopping at farmers' markets, cycling, hiking and horseback riding, but still be able to easily go to Paris either same day or overnight. A friend who grew up in a nearby village led me to the village and house, so it was easy to fit in and be a part of the village and country life. And there is a nearby stables whenever I want to ride through the beautiful forest that surrounds the region.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
A gracious but not pretentious house and grounds, as quiet as one can imagine. Reasonable day trip to Paris. Best bike riding ever.
