Gallardon, 1 hour's drive from Paris and 25 minutes from Chartres and Rambouillet


Large late 17th-century bourgeois house, ideally located in the charming little historic town of Gallardon with all am enities, 25 minutes from Chartres and Rambouillet, close to the Loire valley and 1 hour's drive from Paris. Épernon train station is 13 minutes away, taking you to Paris-Montparnasse in 1 hour. Orly airport, Massy TGV station and the Château de Versailles are 45 minutes away by car. The châteaux of the Loire Valley, easily accessible by motorway, are an hour and a half away by car. Total privacy thanks to the high walls surrounding the garden. Great potential thanks to its attic and garden.


Bordering a small, little-travelled street, the house reveals its imposing facade and its spacious interior. The house officially spans 235 m² (over 300 m² including the attic). From the moment you enter, the codes of the bourgeoisie of the period are apparent. Covered in a beautiful mosaic floor that continues down the long corridor, the entrance hall leads off to the left and right into a large, vast lounge with herringbone parquet flooring and a beautiful period fireplace, and a spacious dining room. This large living space is set against a striking backdrop, and benefits from plenty of natural light thanks to its many windows. A small boudoir-library adjoins, providing a cosy, relaxing atmosphere.

The separate kitchen needs to be renovated and refitted. Adjacent is a small, unfinished room that serves as a utility/laundry/boiler room. An old-fashioned staircase leads to a small spare bedroom with a water supply point, a fruit room and a very large attic in two interconnected sections with a good height under the roof that could be converted. A final room with direct, independent access via the garden and also accessible via the upstairs shower room completes the ground floor accommodation.

A solid wood staircase from the Paris Universal Exhibition leads to the main floor of the house, where a long landing leads to four pretty bedrooms, one of which has a shower room and a very large one in the corner of the building, giving it multiple exposures. With the exception of one bedroom, all the rooms have pine and oak parquet flooring laid in herringbone pattern. A good-sized shower room completes the upstairs accommodation.

A double cellar, an enclosed garage for two cars and an annexe with attic, water tank and oil tank complete the ensemble.



There is a very pretty and bucolic 900 m² English-style garden to the rear of the house. Beautifully landscaped with a wide variety of trees and plants, it exudes a poetic atmosphere. A small paved path runs around the entire green space, at the centre of which are three interconnected ponds. Entirely enclosed by walls, this large garden gives this large town house a natural, untamed country feel, and total privacy.

Other information
