The 19th century chateau
The facades spanning three levels of living space are constructed from dressed stone and pointed quarry stone blocks, enhanced with typical local glazed bricks. The entrance pilasters are made of dressed stone. An additional level was added under the recent natural slate roof, crowned with a zinc frieze. Roof dormers with Caen stone reveals adorn the south and north facades. Zinc pediment roof dormers illuminate the attic space. The main, south-facing facade is marked by a central building that is slightly set back. All the openings are vertically aligned.
A slightly raised, Caen stone porch way provides access to the main entrance. A long balcony corridor runs alongside half of the garden level. The entire building was fully restored a few years ago, both inside and out.
The chapel is built on a little promontory, backing on to the woods. Previously in ruins, it has been fully reconstructed and restored in accordance with good trade practices. Its roof is covered with flat terracotta tiles, whilst that of the bell-tower is made of natural slate. The walls are built of dressed stone and lime-pointed quarry stone blocks. A heavy door marks its entrance, aligned with ridge just like the roof dormer above it. The inside has undergone meticulous restoration works carried out by local craftsmen. With its benches set at angles so as to leave a passageway to the altar, it has been reopened for prayers. The framework of the wooden ceiling reiterates the design of that of the main facade. The floor is covered with terracotta tiles of differing shapes.
This hexagonal building is made of half-timbering and lime-pointed broken tile masonry filler. The roof is covered with flat terracotta tiles. It has been completely restored by local craftsmen.
The caretaker's cottage
This rectangular building is constructed from dressed stone, brick and half-timbering and topped with a flat terracotta tile roof. The house comprises a lounge, a dining room with an adjoining kitchen and two bedrooms with a bathroom. It awaits internal renovation works.
All these buildings reflect typical local architecture with brick, dressed stone and half-timbered walls under roofs covered with flat terracotta tiles or natural slate. The biggest is a stable housing fourteen horse loose boxes, including six foaling stalls and adjoining several areas used for garage or workshop purposes. Upstairs, reached via an outside stairway, is a vast area divided into two conference rooms, a work room, an office, a kitchen as well as bathroom and toilet facilities.
The other outbuildings include a press-house, a sheepfold, an orangery standing in the old vegetable garden and a building dating from the 16th century, once used as accommodation for the caretaker and now in ruins.
This property is a former four star hotel which remains extremely comfortable and luxurious with vast rooms, making it possible to accommodate all kinds of functions and seminars, both inside the chateau and the outbuilding where the necessary fixtures and fittings are still in place. However, by becoming a private residence once again, this residence has regained all of its tranquillity in the midst of lush countryside, far from the urban hustle and bustle. This residence could perhaps be turned back into a commercial property, bearing in mind that the running water, omnipresent throughout the parklands and after which it is named, is an eternal source of revival and renewed emotions, the strength of which can be felt by guests as they pass through the entrance gates.
