French Chateau for sale in Normandy.
This stunning chateau, nestled in the picturesque region of Normandy, boasts a rich history and captivating features. Built between 1604 and 1620, it exudes classic architectural elegance, with an 18th-century addition called 'La Jumenterie.'
The chateau's impressive features include an ornate wrought iron gate, a rectangular design with three floors, and an annex. As you enter through the majestic wrought iron gates, you are greeted by a beautiful courtyard adorned with equine sculptures, the enchanting orangerie, and a charming dovecote.
The chateau offers approximately 880 m2 of living space, and its interior is thoughtfully arranged:
To the left of the main entrance, you'll find a grand wooden staircase and two reception rooms with fireplaces. These rooms offer magnificent views of the park through their north and south-facing windows.
To the right of the entrance, there's another reception room with a fireplace and a spacious kitchen, which also features a fireplace. The kitchen leads to the annex with an east/west-facing room. The entire space is enriched with cedar and oak wood paneling, complementing the exquisite double-glazed window frames equipped with blinds throughout the corridors and rooms.
To the right of the central staircase is a south-facing corridor leading to a chapel and a spacious reception room, all adorned with cedar paneling. This level also boasts splendid views from a small wrought iron balcony.
To the left of the central staircase, you'll find two generous rooms with ensuite bathrooms. An additional bedroom is located in the annex at the eastern end of the chateau.
The magnificent staircase continues to the third level, which features four spacious bedrooms, each equipped with an ensuite bathroom and double washbasins. These rooms also highlight beautifully restored roof beams. The floor is graced with Oeil de boeuf windows that add to its charm. Another room can be found at the end of the corridor within the annex.
The property is beautifully illuminated at night, enhancing the chateau's charm after dark, making it a truly enchanting place to call home.
The outbuildings include:
The Jumenterie, a fully restored structure with a 480m2 floorspace, is a magnificent addition to the estate. It features two spacious sitting rooms, one of which boasts vast French windows and a wooden staircase leading to the rooms on the upper floor.
The stables on the ground level offer significant potential for a customized project, while the first floor has been completely renovated. This floor now houses six rooms, each equipped with ensuite bathrooms and double washbasins. Heating in the Jumenterie is provided by fully electric systems, and the entire structure is fitted with double-glazed windows.
The gatekeeper's house is another beautifully restored building on the property, offering approximately 140 m2 of floorspace. It comprises three bedrooms, a delightful sitting room with a fireplace, and a kitchen.
There is also a separate house, covering around 110 m2, as part of the outbuildings. This house features a sitting room, kitchen, and two bedrooms on the upper floor.
The extensive outbuildings include large barns with vast potential for hosting events or creating additional rooms. Modern stables, complete with a saddle room, are situated to the east of the chateau. Additionally, a swimming pool, which requires some refurbishment, is also present.
The property stretches over 56.83 acres (23 hectares) of land, incorporating a charming English-style park, picturesque woods, and open fields. The landscape is adorned with various trees, including oak, Lebanese Cedars, beech, and yew trees.
The state of the property reflects that it is primarily used as the owner's second home. Several key updates and renovations have been carried out:
The roofings of the chateau and all outbuildings have been completely redone.
The wood paneling on all floors is new.
Window frames and double glazing have been recently replaced.
Electrical systems have been modernized.
Heating is provided by an oil-fired boiler, although a second boiler requires replacement. The oil tank has a capacity of 15,000 litres. Additionally, electric heating is available.
The water supply is sourced from the local water grid.
Both the chateau and the outbuildings have individual sanitation systems.
