A 19th century chateau and its chapel set in some 20 ha of parklands and woods in the south of the Auge region. In the Auge region, on the edge of a valley interspersed with woods and meadows. In an area renowned for animal breeding, cheeses and equestrian sports. 90 minutes from Paris, 45 minutes from Deauville-Trouville, and 15 minutes from Lisieux, a tourist, commercial town with an SNCF train station providing 100-minute links to Paris. A slip road for the A28 motorway is less than 20 minutes away, going towards Paris. Schools, shops, doctors and chemists are all to be found in the neighbouring town. This chateau, looking down on the Touques valley, dominates its 20 or so hectares of land composed of woods and parklands following the lie of the land typical of the Auge region. Thick hedges and tall trees conceal its lofty silhouette as visitors approach. It has three entrances: the one for visitors, lined with hedges, comes to an end at the foot of the chateau; the other two on the opposing side are more discreet. A lane, off the road crossing the village, leads to the chateau entrance. There is an unobstructed view over the valley in the Livarot region and over immense meadows. A driveway leads to the main porch way, after having gone around the lake and the caretakers cottage. The completely enclosed parklands comprise lawns, copses, various shrubs and a wood, spanning approx. 5 ha, planted with standard trees. Meadows can be reached on foot from the stables. Two long walls, vestiges of a vegetable garden, protect a tennis court and a swimming pool, awaiting renovation. An orangery stands at the end.
The 19th century chateauThe facades spanning three levels of living space are constructed from dressed stone and pointed quarry stone blocks, enhanced with typical local glazed bricks. The entrance pilasters are made of dressed stone. An additional level was added under the recent natural slate roof, crowned with a zinc frieze. Roof dormers with Caen stone reveals adorn the south and north facades. Zinc pediment roof dormers illuminate the attic space. The main, south-facing facade is marked by a central building that is slightly set back. All the openings are vertically aligned. A slightly raised, Caen stone porch way provides access to the main entrance. A long balcony corridor runs alongside half of the garden level. The entire building was fully restored a few years ago, both inside and out.
Garden level This level, completely illuminated by natural light, is divided into two sections by a central corridor. On one side are cellars whilst, on the other, are utility rooms as well as a flat with a view over the lake. Ground floor The vestibule houses the main stairway leading upstairs and provides access to a study with a separate toilet. Opposite, double doors open into a large central lounge, spanning approx. 75 m². This room is separated from the dining room by wide doors; the two together forming a vast reception room spanning more than 100 m². The restored 19th century decor still has all of its charm with its varnished wall panelling under coffered ceilings, its strip or chevron pattern parquet flooring and its highly coloured cement floor tiles. First floor The main stairway goes up to a long corridor providing access to five vast bedrooms with their bathrooms and toilets, all of hotel standard. A second, back stairway goes down to the lower floors and up to the second level. The parquet floors are partially covered with carpet, looked down on by varnished wall panelling, reminiscent of that on the floor below. Each bedroom spans approx. 20 m² and each is individually decorated in a 19th century style. Second floor This level is identical to the floor below, with a long corridor leading to another five vast bedrooms with their bathrooms and toilets ...
