The 4 meter high ceiling shows a family coat of arms and the neo-renaissance fireplace is just superb. On either side of the fireplace are majestic doors that on one side leads to the music room and the other to a hallway with a decorative wooden staircase and the Library/office.

The original features in this property are stunning and bountiful, from the parquet flooring to the decorative walls and ceilings, the neo-classical fireplace, the staircase or the chapel. The tall windows accentuate these features by reflecting the sunlight on them. Simply breathtaking.
To the right of the Chateau's main courtyard, there is a large barn from the 18th century or even earlier, in which there is a gardians residence with 2 bedrooms, and bathroom.

Furthermore there is a small house with slate roof from the 17th century with big barn and orangery.

The enormous barn will be very useful for a multitude of puposes.

The park is bordered by a forrest of 7 hectares which slopes gently to the river Vonne which forms the border to this wonderful estate.
