Ref. 3901 Elegant manor house for sale at 1.30 hour from Paris
Near Rouen, in a country setting, this Regency-style brick and stone family home built in the 18th century on the remains of an older fortress, is pleasantly surrounded by more than 14.5 hectares of enclosed land.
The castle, with its symmetrical and elegant façade, is built with brick and with a white stone central semicircular pediment. Slightly protruding from the façade, it indicates the entrance to the residence. The stone corners, high windows, slate roof à la Mansard with dormer windows and chimneys create harmony and elegance. Both facades are decorated identically.
A few perron? steps give access to a luminous vestibule paved with period stones and cabochons, on both the north and south sides.
The ground floor is divided between the official part with its large lounge (30sqm) with oak parquet flooring à la Versailles and featuring a fireplace with an overmantel and wood panelling and its small study (11sqm) with wood panelling and wire shelving, and the more intimate part which comprises the dining room (23sqm) with its large fireplace and its curious boxwood wall clock and the kitchen (7sqm) leading to a beautiful cellar. A pretty and comfortable oak staircase (toilet below) allows access to the upper floors.
On the first floor, a very beautiful gallery leads to a first master bedroom with its bathroom (30 sqm) as well as 3 other beautiful and comfortable bedrooms (from 11 sqm to 23sqm) with parquet floors, not forgetting a luminous bathroom-wc.
On the second floor there are 6 nice bedrooms, a shower room and a linen room. The attic above is insulated.
A pretty thatched cottage with half-timbered walls and cob, slate roof in good condition, can be converted into a dwelling on two levels (approx. 240 sqm)
A beautiful brick, stone and slate stable used as a garage and workshop can also be converted into a dwelling (300 sqm / 3,229 sq ft)
An old sheepfold (60 sqm)
We access to the castle by its two main accesses or its two secondary gates. The property is enclosed on all sides and out of sight. More than 5,000 beech trees were planted in 2002 and a landscaped mound was installed as part of a project for acoustic protection near a road. This is very effective.
A walk through the beautiful park planted with native species provides beautiful views of the house. The water features and the outbuildings add to the charm of the whole. The installation of a swimming pool and/or a tennis court is to be confirmed. The total area is more than 14.5 hectares (about 36 acres).
