19c Mansion near Paris
19c MANSION NEAR PARIS (R)
Traditional “Mansard” house of 370 sqm from the 19th century set in 2 hectares of a beautiful park and located along the Seine river just 30 to 40 minutes South of Paris.
A unique base to enjoy the calm of the countryside combined with the pleasure of day or night visits to nearby Paris, Versailles or other renowned chateaux nearby (Fontainebleau, Vaux-le-Vicomte). Fontainebleau also offers the best bouldering in Europe (if not the world!)
The house comprises 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms arranged over 3 floors. The house has been recently restored and redecorated by a well-known architect, providing simultaneously modern comfort and original features.
Satisfying the most modern demands you’ll find a Lutron home automation, a multimedia installation, a 100Mb Ethernet/WiFi connection, a lounge with a LCD TV, DVD and music system, and a fully-equipped designer kitchen with Gaggenau appliances.
According to the French “bourgeois” style, a magnificent entry hall welcomes you and fire places are spread around the property: dining room (in state of work), reading room, bedrooms. The house has wooden floors throughout, and a traditional wooden staircase leading to the upper floors.
Numerous wooden French doors overlook the park and offer flow of lights all day long, and can be shuttered at night.
The large conservatory built in new materials (insulation, air condition) but following an old design provides at the same time a magnificent lounge overlooking the park and a home theatre which can be activated anytime (curtains automated, 3m wide unfolding screen).
The park surrounding the house offers green views, ancient trees, fruit trees, walking alleys, small soccer field, glasshouses and a playground area. As a central point of the park, a classified over 200 year old copper beech illuminates the views from the house.
The pool area is comprised of a pool of 14x7m (heated May to October), an independent 100 m2 pool house settled in an ancient Orangerie with kitchen, bathrooms, glass house, a 130 m2 shadowed wooden terrace overlooking the pool and the park, a Jacuzzi recessed in the terrace.
Contemporary sets of resin furniture spread throughout the area will enable to welcome guests and family in this haven.
In the basement there is a very well stocked wine cellar (with possibility to reserve great bottles of all types of Bordeaux – from 1982).
A “caretaker” is available on site (living in an independent house well separated) and is looking after the park part time. His English is rudimentary but he speaks French, Portuguese and some Spanish.
The house is non smoking.

We had a great stay in Soisy-sur-Seine thanks to the gracious hosting of Stephane and Ann-Sophie. Their home and property are beautifully situated near the river allowing leisurely walks along the river and into a very quaint town. The house is well appointed with state of the art media and kitchen equipment as well. Great place!”
A special and unique property . The fusion of 19th century architectural tradition and contemporary restoration throughout is a perfect blend , providing ultimate comfort and an opportunity to recline into your surroundings .As previous reviewers have mentioned its location enables you to visit many places of interest. The highlights for us were in our immediate surroundings ,Walking around the property ,connecting with the trees and garden, walks along the river, daily visits to the local village , shopping for local fresh products at the Draveil market. Thanks to Stephane the owner for his communication leading up and during our visit . The caretaker Vitor is on site and of great assistance. Loved the peace of the place. ”
This house is so wonderful I almost want to leave a bad review so as not to let everyone in on the secret! The mansion is beautifully decorated, welcoming, comfortable and everything is designed around enjoying family time together (pool toys, ping pong, cinema room, video games, bikes - you name it, they have it here). The setting is just gorgeous on the banks of the Seine, with beautiful views, and next to extensive sports facilities (tennis courts, football pitches etc) - it's so calm and peaceful. The hosts Anne-Sophie and Stephane are very kind and helpful, and Vitor the caretaker is available to answer any questions during your stay. Paris is a short train ride away and flying into Paris Orly is so convenient for driving to the house. ”
