I am very excited to share this very special property with you. It is a house that I have admired for a long time, belonging to the über-talented antique dealers and stylists, Pascale and Olivier of Le Grillon Voyageur.
The construction of this property is 18th and 17th century, and it lies to the east of Paris in champagne country,in a little town called Sezanne, surrounded by Champagne vineyards. From here it takes about 90 minutes to drive from here to Paris centre, or to the airports.
Pascale and Olivier are selling this home because they are moving to another house not so far away that will give them even more space for their family and work. They have lived here for many years, and the rooms have often hosted their well known antique sales, when all the furniture on display is offered for sale and the house becomes a showroom.
Charmingly, this property used to be a residence of the Marquise de Beauharnais, who was the sister in law to the Empress Josephine. It has also been a school and a convent in its time, as well as having been a home to several of the big families in Champagne.
