Elegant Normandy chateau built at the beginning of the 1800’s, in excellent structural condition, complete with outbuildings, walled gardens and 3.5 hectares of land. An attractive private tree lined avenue with land to both sides leads to the front of the chateau.
The bright and spacious entrance hall with sweeping, focal point staircase has a waxed limestone floor. From this hallway leads the Lounge with marble fireplace, paneled walls and French doors to the terrace.
The second sitting room has a beech wood herring bone parquet floor, wood paneled walls and a granit fireplace with wood burning stove. The dining room also leads from the hall but has a double door entrance through to the second sitting room. It is also wood paneled and has a parquet floor. The kitchen is fitted and comes with appliances and a ‘quarry’ tiled floor.
A stone flight of steps lead down to a cloakroom and then on to the cellars. These have also been renovated, providing a laundry room, boiler room, wine cellar and storage area. There is a door leading form the laundry room into the walled garden.
On the first floor are four double bedrooms, all with en suite facilities and one has an adjoining dressing room/nursery. The owners have retained many original features throughout this floor including the herring bone landing floor.
The second floor provides three further bedrooms, one with en suite facilities and a dressing room, family bathroom and office. The attic is accessible via a trap door.
The Chateau has a well maintained garden area and within this is the old coach house .This is currently undergoing transformation, with planning permission, into a three bedroom dwelling .All windows have been renewed, a new entrance door installed, water and electricity installed and a cement ground floor put in.
The old stabling block, set on two levels, runs the width of the garden and not only does it have magnificent views of the open country side but would also easily convert to provide further living space if desired. Within the grounds there is an old stable set over two floors which now provides garage and workshop space.
Although the chateau is being offered with 3.5 hectares of land, the current owners also own further outbuildings, two semi detached houses and a further 3.5 hectares of land adjoining the land already on offer. This is available via further negotiations if desired.
The Normandy region is situated between the Channel and the Paris basin and has been the welcoming harbour of civilizations through the Seine Valley to Paris. The region's name originates from the Viking Norsemen back in the 9th century and it is officially divided in two parts, "Haute et Basse Normandie" (High and Low).
Its pleasantness has made Normandy the home of arts, amongst them painting and literature. Monet, Millet, Corot, Pisarro as well as Corneille, Maupassant, Flaubert, Victor Hugo and Dumas "père", have found their inspiration in this region.
Normandy is very easy and quick to access to by air, boat, rail or road, for a few hours, a quiet holiday, or for a lifetime!
