10 km from Deauville, a 17th and 19th century chateau, caretaker’s lodge, and ornamental pond in 4 ha of parklands.
The property is located in the heart of the Pays d’Auge. Paris is 200 km by the A13 motorway that is close by and can be reached be train (station is 10 mins away) in just under two hours. Deauville and Trouville 10 km away and Honfleur 15 km, are key holiday destinations along the “Côte Fleurie”. A small town with a range of shops and services is under 5 km away.
Along one of the small “Pays d’Auge” roads, a wrought iron gate supported by black and white flint pillars, opens on to a driveway guarded by a caretaker’s lodge. A Parisian art dealer transformed the property in 19th century into an elegant 1100 m2 residence. Some famous painters and writers of the period, Jacques-Emile Blanche and André Gide used these driveways between the lawns interspersed with century-year old trees to reach the chateau overlooking the ornamental pond and parklands and live there.
The chateauOriginally an elegant manor house built in 17th century by an illustrious Normandy family. By the end of 19th century, a Parisian art dealer undertook expansion works: the manor house is now occupied by the current chateau. Two wings have been added forming an enclosed interior courtyard.
Later, changes to the two main facades were made.
Two wooden terraces topped with a pitched roof overhang the facade portico of the main building. The former manor house facade is decorated in an extremely unusual fashion. The pilasters features four exotic musicians. To one end, a canopy sheltering a statue of the Virgin Mary bearing her child built into the wall, rests on an Atlas with two fine wood columns, one Corinthian and the other Salomonic decorated with vegetal motifs. The roof overhanging this facade, with its coloured ceramic highlights chosen to match the Virgin Mary’s blue mantle was modified and dormer window widened and adorned with coloured earthenware representing Saint Martin sharing his coat.
The chateau facades are illuminated by the shimmer of the black and white flint in them and the numerous large picture windows brighten up the rooms. Certain sections of the facades are half-timbered or slate covered. Dressed stone has been used for the corners of the walls and window framings. The numerous architectural features of the brown tile roofs emphasise this impressive building.
Ground floor
There is diagonal parquet flooring in the large reception rooms. The walls have wood panelling, are decorated and the ceilings have mouldings. The double doors also featuring mouldings are topped with paintings or grisailles.
A large opening separates the entrance hall from the porch sheltered by a stone portico.
The entrance on both sides leads to a lounge and a dining room. Opposite, glass panel double doors separate the entrance from the stately staircase. The staircase is illuminated by three tall windows that overlook the interior courtyard.
Two openings in the lounge give access to a music room and a stately staircase. In this hall area, one door opens in to a corridor leading to two bedrooms with a shower room and a toilet, in line with the lounge, whereas another door at the opposite opens on to a back staircase and in line with the dining room, kitchen, study and pantries.
Opposite, the rooms, located in the original manor house, are on either side of the entrance hall incorporating a wooden staircase. They include a lounge, study, and what used to be a dining room and kitchen.
First floor
The stately staircase leads to a landing with ceilings with mouldings and walls adorned with stucco decorations. The landing gives access to the two main bedrooms, one benefitting from a wood terrace and stone portico, with its own walk-in wardrobe, bathroom and a toilet. An opening leads to a back staircase …
