A 19th century, country house in a landscape garden 50 minutes south of Caen in Norman Switzerland.
This property, where the boundaries of the French departments of Orne and Calvados meet, stands in a village in one of Normandy’s most picturesque regions. A large town, with all useful infrastructures, sixth form colleges and a train station, is 25 minutes away. The train provides 190-minute links to Paris. A village, with all local shops, is 2 km away.
This house, on the outskirts of the village, extends lengthwise alongside a little road. It is flanked by an extension set at right angles. Between the two buildings, the facade features a carriage entrance that provides access to an inner paved courtyard. It is separated from the garden by a low, wooden wall. Spanning a surface area of approx. 4,500 m², it is enclosed by walls. A second gateway at the end of the country house opens on to the main road.
The country houseThis house, constructed from sandstone quarry blocks, spans two levels, topped with a flat tile, gable roof with a hipped end. A pruned Virginia creeper climbs along the facade. Both facades feature numerous openings that let in copious amounts of through light.
Ground floor
The entrance door opens off the courtyard into a vestibule. It provides access, on one side, to a dining room and to an adjoining lounge and study. On the other side, a door leads to a small vestibule and a wooden stairway going up to an area, spanning approx. 60 m² and awaiting conversion. Opposite the entrance, an opening leads to the kitchen. The walls in the dining room are painted a warm colour, whilst the beams and joists have been left exposed as in the lounge, where a quarry stone block fireplace features a dressed stone lintel, supported on granite corbels. The wooden stairway, the newel post of which is carved with a head, goes up to the floor given over to the night-time section. The atmosphere is more refined in the study where the walls and their wainscoting are light in colour. The ceiling features long coffers, adorned with cornices and moulding. A white, veined marble fireplace supports a trumeau mirror. The floor is laid with herringbone pattern parquet flooring. The utility space taken up by a boiler room and a laundry room can be reached from the outside.
First floor
A vast landing provides access to five bedrooms, each with its own bath or shower room and dressing room or shower room and toilet. The meticulous decoration is sober. A linen room and a separate toilet complete this level.
An extension, constructed at right angles to the country house, is separated from it by a passageway. An underground wine cellar, spanning a surface area of approx. 50 m² and featuring a 4 m high ceiling, still houses various sizes of oak wood barrels and casks. The access door is in the courtyard. An opening in the passageway provides access to a room, spanning a surface area of approx. 45 m², which awaits conversion. One of the five bedrooms in the country house has been laid out on the second level of this extension.The gardenThe garden is in a raised position and the view of the house is unobstructed. Tall trees, including sequoia and ash, are dotted throughout the lawns. A pathway winds as far as a bench set under a vast branch. An old, granite, apple press, a quarry stone block aviary with a thatched roof and a “lovers” fountain all help to enhance the garden.
