This chateau is located in Lower Normandy in the department of Calvados strategically thought between land and sea.
Undisputed flagship of a small village appreciated for its proximity to the coast and its attachment to the economic basin of the Caennaise agglomeration.
Perfectly served at 10 minutes for all services and shops, it enjoys quick access to highways, rail, and airport transport.
Located in the heart of a park with neat nature, this place will long keep its magic under the protection of its legitimately acquired MH status a century ago as a testimony to its exceptional architectural wealth.
The total living area is of the order of 1150 sqm, not including the commons.
The large entrance serves the vaulted cellar of the fourteenth century and the old Renaissance kitchen remained in its original state.
The central dwelling is organized around a large, ornately carved stone staircase giving access to two large ceremonial pieces: one on the ground floor, consisting of a large oval dining room (50sqm) with stone colonnades, opening onto a covered terrace;
The other, upstairs, having been the bedroom of the Marquise de Croismare and also overlooking a terrace.
This bedroom is of exceptional architectural quality with its 17th century painted box ceiling representing the 9 muses with Apollo. Remarkable painted wood monumental fireplace and parquet Versailles floor.
Mid-floor, a modern and comfortable living space (heated) have been designed; it includes a paneled living room (with billiards), a dining room, a kitchen, a small lounge (former chapel with dome ceiling), 5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
In the south-east wing has been developed an independent rental housing on 3 levels.
The north-east leaves many additional possibilities on 4 levels, including huge attics.
In the nineteenth century is created a large outbuilding at the set square of the chateau with a living area of over 300 sqm distributed from right to left:
- boiler room and workshop
- large summer living room of about 55 sqm with a ceiling height of more than 7m.
- vast reception room of 140 sqm
- Fire room of 25 sqm
Upstairs modern apartment of approximately 90 sqm, remain to develop 2 bedrooms + attic.
At the back of the chateau is an enclosed courtyard containing various small agricultural sheds.
The park has a total area of about 37 acres (15 ha) largely wooded. Large lawns offer beautiful perspectives and highlight the multitude of tree species present (oaks, plane trees, poplars, walnut trees, lime trees, cedars of Lebanon) some of which are more exotic (palm, banana). A purple beech displays more than 500 years.
The park is well maintained and has been methodically reforested 22 years ago. A pleasant lake recalls the existence of a mill in the 14th century whose ruins still remain. The reach crosses a large part of the property before reaching its small river.
