Good Tuesday morning! A historic 19th century wine trader’s estate with stables, garden, and winery, 1.5 hours’ drive from Paris.
What a beautiful property with a fascinating history! The listing contains rich detail and is worth the read.
From the listing on Patrice Besse:
Located in the heart of Breteuil in the Oise, the property is part of the history of the city. In fact, from the 19th century until 1992, the same family, the Cappronnier family, has been the benchmark for the sale of fine wines and spirits in the region. It was in 1867 that Louis-Philippe Crépin Cappronnier decided to erect both the family home and the winery. Today, the wine trading activity has disappeared but the brand still stands on the facade.
From this central address, all amenities are within walking distance (shops, all private and public schools, cinema). This small town has a real Picardy identity. And yet, the world is very close: you are an hour and a half from Paris via the A16 or an hour and ten by train. Beauvais Airport is 25 minutes away and Charles de Gaulle one hour.
The date of 1868 is engraved in the timber of the warehouse. An ever-present veranda from 1912 is built with canopies with decorations painted by the local painter Georges Vaconsin. These traces concretely prove the authentic and completely exceptional character of this place. The winery is also listed as a historic monument. This property mixing housing and professional space is rare because it forms a coherent and intact whole of life under Napoleon III even if, in the big house, 70s wallpapers bring a retro and pop modernity. A buyer sensitive to this atmosphere will be able to reveal the emotion of the place. If these buildings are from the 19th century, they will be able to accommodate a life project of the 21st century with the advantages of the city and the countryside without their disadvantages. In the winery, the imagination of the future owner will make it possible to design a unique place: coworking space, third place, or even an artists’ residence. Everything is possible!
