A listed, 17th century chateau in more than three hectares, just 30 minutes from the sea in Brittany.
On land once known as Armorica, in the midst of the Trégor region, this house can be reached from the French capital in less than three hours via the Paris-Brest fast train line. This chateau, built in the area where the production of linen cloth known as “Grâciennes” boomed between 1650 and 1830, is set in peaceful countryside. A village, with local shops and amenities, is two kilometres from the property. The nearby N12 makes it easy to get to various economic and tourist centres such as Lannion, Guingamp and Saint-Brieuc as well as to the Pink Granite and Goëlo coasts.
A secondary road leads through the countryside to a no-through road and the main entrance to this property. Wrought iron gates, flanked by two stone pillars, are protected by a ha-ha. Bordered by tall trees, a majestic driveway leads to a gravel courtyard, extended by vast grassy areas. The parklands, spanning some two and a half hectares with a stream running through, spread out from there, concealing a tennis court. A second, more discreet entrance, leads, on one side of the house, to a garden and its walled terraces. A flight of granite steps links the garden to the main courtyard below.
The chateauThis chateau is impressive. Originally, two long buildings set at right angles to one another were connected by a pavilion. However, one wing was destroyed by fire last century. The monumental stairway in the pavilion was preserved.
Nowadays, the chateau comprises a main building, flanked by a pavilion at one end. An orangery has been constructed at right angles to the opposite end. The hip roofs are covered with slate.
The current owners have carried out meticulous restoration works throughout most of this L-shaped building.
The entire chateau is on the French Historic Monument list.
The pavilionThis pavilion protrudes slightly. Its three-sloped roof has a roof dormer featuring the same architectural codes as those of the main building: dressed stone bull’s eye windows, flanked with a curved decor and topped with an arched pediment. A large, stone stairway, with its wrought iron railings, is housed in the hall which provides access to the rooms on the ground floor of the pavilion and the main building.
Ground floor
A vestibule, which originally provided access to the two buildings then set at right angles, features a central opening and goes up to the floor above. This vestibule leads to a vast kitchen, where two windows look out over a garden.
First floor
A cupola, with a semi-circular profile, and its sculpted dome look down on to the stairway. A door on the landing leads to a corridor providing access to bedrooms, overlooking the parklands, in the main building and a bedroom in the pavilion, looking out the back of the house.The main buildingThis building has classical architecture on two levels with nine regular openings on the facade, enhanced with granite string courses. The roof features four harmonious roof dormers which let copious amounts of light into the attic space. The facade faces south.
Ground floor
The entrance hall in the pavilion gives access to the chateau’s reception rooms. A ladies’ sitting room, a dining room and a lounge, all described as stately, adjoin one another. Fireplaces, original wooden parquet flooring, panelling and exposed beams enhance these rooms. Furthermore, a corridor running the length of the rear facade also provides access to the main rooms as well as to a toilet for disabled persons and a games room.
First floor
This level can be reached either via the main stairway or via a wooden stairway, housed where
