An early 19th century, large, luxurious home and a small farm on wooded land spanning more than a hectare, in Bayeux.
Bayeux, capital of the Bessin region, is a town which was astonishingly preserved from bombing. The town centre, around the cathedral, is reminiscent of Paris’ Marais district, with a number of 17th and 18th century mansion houses which can be admired through their entrance gates. This property stands on a road leading west towards the bocage countryside. Paris can be reached in 2⅓ hours by train, after a stop at Caen, or by road via the A13 motorway. The D-Day Landing beaches are some ten kilometres away.
Wooden gates, flanked by two stone pillars and low stone walls, open on to a driveway, winding through grassy areas and coming to a halt in front of the house. Another driveway, via high wrought iron gates, is in line with the house and runs alongside a large, long outbuilding. The latter is surrounded by walls that enclose a grassy courtyard.
The large, luxurious homeConstructed at the very beginning of the 20th century, this large, luxurious home features five bays and spans three levels, one of which is under the rafters. The gable, slate roof is enhanced with roof dormers, featuring lobed pediments and arched windows. The walls have been covered with a rendering comprising sea pebbles as was customary in 1810. A two-storey extension has been added all along the rear facade.
Ground floor
The entrance door is set to one side. It opens into a deep vestibule, partially covered with cement floor tiles. The stairway, on one side, is made of wood, the posts of wrought iron. On the other side, double, stained-glass doors open into a pantry, set between a dining room and a kitchen. The vestibule provides access, on one side, to a study, followed by a vast lounge. It is widely illuminated courtesy of four large windows, two of which flank the fireplace. Made of a light-coloured marble, it is topped with a mirror, surrounded by panelling, sculpted with acanthus leaves and garlands of flowers. The ceilings are moulded and the beams elegantly boxed. The dining room to the rear of the large lounge is more sober, its fireplace is made of wood and its floor laid with cement tiles. On the other side of the vestibule is a small lounge, with old terracotta floor tiles.
First floor
The stairway goes up to a large corridor which gives access to the bedrooms. Straight on, in the extension, a hall area, illuminated via a lightwell, leads to a bathroom, a toilet, a linen room, with a wash-hand basin, and a bedroom. As was customary, the rooms intercommunicate with one another. The floor is laid with strip pattern parquet flooring. The biggest bedroom, at one end of the house, is illuminated via three windows, two of which flank a marble fireplace. A shower room adjoins one of the four other bedrooms.
Half-story
A bathroom can be reached via two wooden steps off the stairway.
Second floor
A long corridor provides access to five rooms. This level, with partially sloping ceilings, is illuminated via two roof dormers and skylights. The floor is covered with parquet flooring, laid either in a wide strip pattern or, as in the biggest room, in a herringbone pattern.The small farmA grassy courtyard is enclosed by a large building, high walls and, in one corner, a kennel, topped with a dovecote. Two open buildings stand against the walls, facing one another. The gable roofs, covered with tiles, are supported by thick oak beams.
The origin of the building, which spans two levels, dates back to the 17th century. This barn was extended in the early 20th century by a living area.
The barn comprises areas used for stable, storage, cellar and attic purposes. The floors are paved or left as packed mud. The stone …
