Located 5 minutes from Bayeux and 15 minutes from Caen, this 19th century castle with remarkable architecture is nestled in the heart of a charming village in the Bessin region. It offers a living area of 550 m2 with rare volumes and all modern conveniences. The 7,000 m2 grounds include several outbuildings: orangery, chapel and hunting lodge.
Built in 1870, the castle is a rare example of neo-Gothic architecture in the Bessin region. Behind the metal grille and stone walls, the richly decorated facade and equally opulent interior will not leave visitors insensitive. Many architectural elements seem to testify to an esoteric construction - symbolically telling the search for the philosopher's stone. The monumental stone staircase, stained glass windows, woodwork, parquet floors and fireplaces give charm and authenticity to this unique residence.
The castle also offers all the modern comforts. The roof, windows and heating system are new. The sub-ceiling height of approximately 3 metres makes it an easy to heat home. The many windows provide clarity and light. Several rooms benefit from a triple exposure. The distribution plan is rational and balanced.
On the ground floor, the entrance hall with stone staircase distributes, on the one hand, the reception room and a lounge, and on the other hand, the dining room and a library. The kitchen is adjacent to the dining room.
The first floor includes five bedrooms, a boudoir and a large bathroom and separate toilet.
On the second floor are seven rooms of varying sizes as well as a shower room and a bathroom.
The basement or garden level was used by a previous owner as a restaurant. It consists of the former reception rooms, a kitchen and a cloakroom with toilets. Access to the boiler room is only from the outside.
The park is planted with majestic trees: sophoras, pines, white chestnut trees, beech trees... A circular path leads around it and to the orangery and the adjoining chapel, the vast garage and the pavilion. A small crenellated tower houses original latrines. There is also a faisandoir.
This castle is suitable for multiple uses, such as a large family home, a luxurious guest house, a reception place, or to the exercise of a professional activity. It is ideally located to enjoy the charm of Bayeux, the activities of Caen or the pleasures of the sea. Arromanches and the D-Day beaches are less than 15 kilometres away.
