A chateau and its listed, 17th century outbuildings with 35 ha of land, less than 3 hours from Paris and 4 km from the beaches to the north of the Cotentin peninsula.
Valognes and its train station, in the north of the Cotentin peninsula, are 12 km from this property. Paris can be reached in 3 hours by train or road. The beaches and the village, with local shops, are but a few kilometres away.
A secondary road leads through the bocage countryside to wrought iron gates, opening on to a driveway more than 800 metres long. Bordered by purple beech trees, it initially leads to the main outbuildings. These comprise several adjoining buildings and extensions, featuring a central porchway. These outbuildings partially delimit a vast grassy area. A chapel and another outbuilding, on one side of the outbuildings, stand, surrounded by tall trees, facing the chateau. A round, completely walled vegetable garden is laid out further away.
The chateauThe 17th century chateau has been destroyed. The current, rectangular, Louis-Philippe style chateau was constructed in the 19th century. It spans five levels, topped with a hip, slate roof, with a semi-underground basement, a floor of reception rooms, a noble floor and two floors of bedrooms and staff accommodation.
The harmony of the proportions and the care given to the finishing of the ornamental details make this property an outstanding example of the Juillet monarchy.
The two main facades comprise nine bays. The three central bays form a projection topped with a triangular pediment. The openings on the first level are topped with semi-circular arches, whilst those on the second level are rectangular. On one side, ten granite steps go up to a monumental porch, resembling a peristyle, with Ionic order columns and supporting a wide balcony. Here, the pediment features the family coat-of-arms. On the other side, the’ steps lead to a more sober porch, surrounded by a balustrade. The decoration is rich, the sculpted motifs numerous: Corinthian order pilasters, moulded cornices, modillions and other keystones adorned with masks.
A stairway on one side goes to the basement.
Ground floor
Light is omnipresent courtesy of the tall, wide, arched openings. Double, glazed entrance doors, flanked by two large windows, open into a vast hall. The floor is paved with stone and two-tone marble, forming star motifs. The ceilings are decorated with cornices. The stairway, with its wooden steps, is monumental. With a 12 m high ridge, it alone fills the space with a great deal of equilibrium. Horseshoe-shaped, it is protected by sculpted wrought iron railings. On one side, a first large lounge is illuminated via six openings. Once again, the decor is rich. The parquet flooring features marquetry inlaid with darker cubes. The walls are lined with floor-to-ceiling panelling, moulded cornices appear to support the ceiling. A second, adjoining lounge and a dining room are similarly decorated, with variations, the parquet flooring is laid in a herringbone pattern. Next, a kitchen can be reached via the main hall. On the other side, a small lounge precedes a bedroom, with its bathroom, and another reception room. Behind the main stairway, a cloakroom, a toilet and a corridor that leads to a second stairway. This one goes to the basement and the staff floors. Great care has been taken with the interior architecture: impressive, coloured marble fireplaces decorate the rooms. Attention to detail, right down to the antique style casement bolts, is omnipresent.
First floor
Both sides of the main, horseshoe-shaped stairway go up to a round landing. The railings follow its contours as well as the inlaid parquet flooring. A central corridor provides access to eight bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Second floor
This level, accessed via the second stairway, is illuminated via …
