A Napoleon III style mansion house, with a 3,000 m² garden,
in the French department of Eure’s Ouche region

Évreux, EURE upper-normandy 27000 FR


This property is some 15 km from Evreux, in the midst of a market town with 5,000 inhabitants, near to all amenities including a Sunday market selling local produce. The SNCF train station provides links to Paris-Saint-Lazare. The French capital is but 150 km away via the A13 motorway.
Several green open spaces and forests surrounding the small town are crisscrossed with hiking trails, one of which was part of the route for the Way of Saint James.
A nearby, renowned horse riding centre completes the range of cultural, artistic and sporting activities available. The beaches along the “Côte Fleurie” (Coast of Flowers) are about a hundred kilometres away from these premises.


This residence was constructed in the middle of the 19th century in the centre of town in a district, sought after because of its tranquillity, where elegant mansion houses rival with opulent middle-class houses and other large luxurious homes from the same era. They line an avenue also bordered by a park, planted with one hundred year old trees and crossed by a bridle path.
This urban residence stands out courtesy of its harmonious rooms and its swimming pool, sheltered from onlookers, with a pool-house. Set back off the street, it is surrounded by an ornamental garden, enclosed by heavy iron fencing.

The mansion house

With an air of the Napoleon III style, this mansion house spans approx. 380 m² of living space over four levels. Its rendered facades are enhanced with raised ornamentation. The lower sections are constructed from stone and flint. The Mansard style roof, typical of the era, is made of zinc and slate. With a central lightening conductor, it features stone, bull’s eye windows on each of its four sides and provides glimpses of impressive dressed stone and brick chimney stacks.
A large basement-garden level is full of potential.
The other levels, given over to living space, comprise an impressive entrance hall, a double reception room, a dining room, a study, a kitchen, eight bedrooms, some of which have their own bath or shower room and a private toilet.
Remote-controlled, heavy, old, wrought iron gates provide access to this property, with its parking area on the side of the residence, which is completed by two lock-up garages.
The mansion house is entered via a wide flight of twelve stone steps, adorned with French balusters, facing the garden on the road side.

The outbuilding

The parklands

The 3,260 m² of parklands, out of sight of onlookers, are planted with old, deciduous and resinous trees. They include a 17x3 m swimming pool, heated via a heat pump, with corner steps and a tiled terrace. This suntrap swimming pool is adjoined by a pool-house. A little, cement, ornamental pond and two lock-up garages are also to be found within the parklands.
The property is enclosed by old metal fencing.

Our opinion

Like sound values, the design of this mansion house can but be described as classical. No unnecessary decorative features cloud the exuded impression of balance, precision and a pleasant way of life. The interior, featuring floor tiles with geometric motifs, herringbone pattern parquet flooring, soberly decorated stained glass windows and arched doorways, is in harmony with the overall architecture. New residents of such a home, in a small, but reasonably-sized town, would have every advantage especially if the discreet opulence of these premises was to be enhanced by some renovation works.
