Castle Bayeux (14)

  • Surface 548 m2
  • Rooms 9 
  • Bedrooms 5 
  • Land 1.1 ha

Enclosed by moats, a 17th century residence and its 16th century dovecote with 1 ha of land, 15 km from the D-Day Landing beaches and 20 minutes from Bayeux in Calvados.
In the Bessin area, in the French department of Calvados, a region which symbolises the events of the last world war and which has a good tourist trade.
A secondary road provides a ten-minute link between this property and the A13 motorway.
Paris can be reached in 170 minutes, Caen in 40 minutes, and Bayeux in 20 minutes.
Lison SNCF train station, 10 minutes away, provides 140-minute rail links to Paris.
The nearest market town, with all shops and amenities, is 6 km away.
The local area is made up of fields and grasslands, surrounded by thick hedges and streams, with hamlets comprising two or three buildings dotted here and there amongst the numerous manor houses and chateaux.
A private driveway leads from the secondary road up to the gates of the residence. The perimeter wall, some parts of which are still standing, runs alongside the moats which surround the residence, a four-sided building set at the end of the parklands. A round dovecote standing in one corner of the entrance is extended by the ruined walls of a mill, built on the edge of the moat. Opposite is a barn used for storing wood.
A pedestrian bridge to the rear of the chateau separates the parklands and a meadow.
Ground floor
As is often the case for this region’s architecture, the residence is divided into two with high ceilings in the rooms used for receiving guests and lower ceilings in the rooms used on an everyday basis.
The main entrance hall with its black-tiled stairway divides the chateau into two sections. The through hall, running the width of the building, opens via a door near to the cloakroom out on to the rear of the parklands.
The wide limestone tiles are marked with the patina of time.
The walls have a lime rendering. The orange-coloured brick contours that adorn the doors and encircle two window seats as well as the fan-shaped vault bear witness to the nobility of the dwelling.
The main lounge faces west. This spacious room has a high ceiling with exposed, varnished beams.
The chessboard pattern, terracotta floor tiles from Noron-la-Poterie are also attractively marked with the patina of time. Bricks are laid around the hearth of the fireplace which forms a significant decoration in the lounge.
Double oak wood doors in the entrance hall lead to the dining room which soberly features painted walls, a terracotta tile floor and a fireplace.
This is followed by a pleasant, spacious kitchen. The wide-hearth fireplace and the “potager” (hearth where meals were cooked on embers) are a reminder that for centuries this was the only room of the chateau that was lived in. The painted walls, like the exposed beams and joists, make the room luminous. The floor featuring large, light and dark-coloured flagstones is similar to that of the entrance hall.
One of the two doors in a corner leads to the parklands, whilst the other leads to an enclosed stairway.
There is a study behind the dining room and a toilet under the stairs.
A laundry room, a boiler room and the cellars can be accessed from the kitchen via a door leading to the outside.
First floor
This floor is divided into two non-communicating sections, each with its own stairway.
The main two-flight stairway leads to a landing as well as a lounge and then up to the second floor. The black stone steps are wide and shallow and are enhanced with sculpted Caen stone balusters and hand rail. Courtesy of its double aspect, natural light is reflected off the lime-washed walls and the ever exposed white stone. The floor on the landing features two-tone terracotta tiles, laid in a chessboard pattern, typical of the region.
The size and aspect of the lounge are identical to those of the one …
