Situated in the town of St Quentin, in the heart of Picardy, and within an easy walk of the town's facilities, this beautifully presented and luxuriously appointed town house takes its inspiration from the traditional hotels particuliers of 19th century France. A hotel particulier was a sizeable, privately owned town house and was usually detached, with formal gardens and an imposing facade. This delightful property, which was built in 1907 and which has a surface area of 585m2, is no exception.
The principal house has beautifully fitted and furnished reception rooms and an orangery, a superb hand fitted kitchen, high quality bedrooms and bathrooms and exceptional extras such as a vaulted, brick lined cellar and bar.
Externally there are additional buildings arranged around the landscaped garden. These include a two car garage, a large reception room with its own kitchen, a sports suite and spa which includes a spa pool, hammam, sauna and area to relax. Another building has been converted into a private museum. There is also a further independent guest suite of bedroom and bathroom.
The town has train connections to Paris and is convenient for motorway connections to the north and south making it particularly well located for someone wishing to commute between the major commercial and cultural centres of northern Europe or who wants simply to live in style in a beautiful and historic city.
ABOUT THE AREA
St Quentin, the capital of Upper Picardy, is a town particularly noted for its architectural beauty. The town is centred on a central square of Flemish inspiration which is dominated by a flamboyant Gothic style town hall. From here you can wander the pretty streets admiring buildings which range in style from medieval to art deco and neo-classical.
Another side to the town's character is reveled in summer when the town centre turns into a delightful beach and plaza for enjoying warmer weather - while if you want to escape to a more rural environment, close by is a wetland and nature reserve ideal for bathing, pedalos and mini golf.
The town has direct train links to Paris and the north, motorways are easily accessible and the channel tunnel can be reached in under two hours by car.
