17th and 19th century, Louis XIII chateau between Eure and Calvados
Two hours from Paris via the A13 and A28 motorways. On the borders of the French departments of Eure and Calvados, equidistant from Lisieux and Bernay, the rail link makes it possible to reach the capital easily. All shops and schools are 5 km (3 miles) away.
The road, on the outskirts of the village, leads to a lane, from the entrance of which can be seen the chateau. It is accessed by passing through a small wood and bordering a fence defining the different plots of woods or grasslands which make up the 5 ha (12.3 acres) of the estate. To the right of the chateau is an old house with a henhouse and a barn awaiting renovation. To the rear is a lake with a jetty as well as an old greenhouse.
The brick and stone chateau was built in two sections which today form a T-shaped building.
The first rectangular section was built in the 17th century. It has a synthetic slate roof with projecting eaves and a Louis XIII style facade. The roof features five internal gable pediment roof dormers since the top floor was lifted up to the level of the entablature. On the rear facade, two windows that illuminate the stairway were modified in the 19th century. They were enlarged and adorned with a semi-circular arch featuring alternately long and short voussoirs.
The second section was built in the 19th century in a similar style to that of the first section. Only the roof dormers are different as they have open gables. A stone terrace with its balustrade faces the sun as it sets.
The entrance hall includes the stairway and a vestibule. To the right are a kitchen and a dining room, once reserved for staff; to the left are a study and a lounge with a marble fireplace, decorated with painted panelling and moulding. The paintings are of the Four Seasons. There is herringbone pattern parquet flooring; then a kitchen and an eating area.
On the first floor are bedrooms which were guests’ bedrooms. They have their own shower room or toilet.
The second floor has more bedrooms and storage rooms that could be converted.
The proximity of the A 28 motorway exit make this property easy to access.
Set in the peace and quiet, it would suit residents looking for rest and relaxation or be ideal for a bed & breakfast activity.
Decoration works are required to give this residence back its glory of yesteryear, but it could be lived in straightaway.
The farm situated at the back is of no great consequence as it predominantly grows cereal crops and the few cows that graze there, keep the grasslands maintained.
