Set in a sheltered green valley in the Suisse Normande region, this superb period restoration property is bordered by a small river. Hidden by its cypress trees, it reveals a meticulous architecture concealing vast, luminous volumes.
One enters a large vestibule (approximately 30 sqm) of Caen stone, illuminated by the rounded transom of its door and two windows, leaving room for the development of a grand staircase.
Immediately opposite is a large, light-filled living room with two windows and a French window opening onto the rear terrace. A stone fireplace has been fitted with an insert to keep the hearth warm in winter. Parquet flooring gives this beautiful room a warm, soothing ambience.
Behind the fireplace, two openings lead to a corner office lounge for a more private space (approximately 15 sqm).
Returning to the vestibule, a winter lounge (approximately 16 sqm) faces the stone fireplace, topped by a Caen stone overmantel.

To the left of the living room, a large dining room adjoins the kitchen, highlighted by a wall covered with Zuber panoramic paper, and lit by two windows opening onto the south-facing terrace.
To the left of the entrance, a corridor with a long cupboard and two toilets leads to the kitchen.
At the far end, a vast kitchen (22sqm) across the width of the house, lit by several windows and its exit door to the adjoining patio. Its central island and fittings give meaning to this important family room.
Behind, a scullery next to the patio for technical equipment.
The harmoniously curved walnut staircase leads upstairs. It leads to a wide landing, lit by three tall windows, like the rest of this light-filled house.
To the right of the landing, in a south-facing corridor, is a large bedroom (approximately 20 sqm) in Mediterranean colors, with a recently fitted bathroom and individual toilet.
Opposite, another bedroom (2) with the same volume, also lit by two south-facing windows, has its own bathroom and toilet.

On the west side, a corridor leads to bedroom 3 with its own shower room and toilet.
An office area with two small bedrooms (4 and 5) or study (15 sqm each) with lovely views of the protected environment.
A bathroom with shower and toilet.
From the landing, the staircase continues in Caen stone, retaining its wide sweep to the second floor.
On the second floor, a large landing (approximately 27 sqm) extends into a vast lofted area, serving as a games room. Illuminated by new velux windows, the insulated attic space showcases a partly exposed roof structure. Other features include:
A small room used as a linen room, lit by a velux window.
A lovely bedroom 6 (15 sqm) with two velux windows on a carpeted floor.
A tiled bathroom and toilet.
A vaulted bedroom (approximately 15 sqm) opened by a steel door with three-point lock. An exposed stone wall lends a pleasant atmosphere to this multi-purpose room.
Next door, a final shower room.

Outside, the park is graced with noble, graceful trees: a sequoia, a virginia tulip tree and other ornamental trees nobly reveal their contemporary age to the property. The garden, with its gravel paths and bucolic spaces and structured boxwoods, complements the architecture of the house.
Tucked away behind a hedge of trees, you’ll find a large swimming pool and a recently refurbished tennis court.
On the opposite side of the property, a river encircles this beautiful house worthy of Romantic literature, providing brilliant reflections of sunlight.
While this small château is enchanting for its living spaces, it also includes several outbuildings, making it an ideal tourist attraction in an exceptional setting.

THE OUTBUILDINGS (approximately 1000 sqm)
Building 1:
Continuing on from the patio, it includes separate technical rooms and toilets, a laundry room and two small cellars.
There is also a very healthy dwelling (to be refreshed) with underfloor heating, comprising a large room on the first floor (approximately 50 sqm) and another upstairs for projects to be invented.
Building 2: A former mill:
Dating from the same period as the main dwelling, this charming building, to be renovated on the river’s edge, has a lovely patio area for an artist’s studio. Next to it is a small terrace where you can admire the calm flow of the river.
Building 3 (approximately 120 sqm floor area)
At right-angles to the château, bordered by a wisteria bush on one side, this handsome building offers plenty of space for conversion. On the first floor, there are several large, structurally sound rooms in need of renovation, and bedrooms upstairs. It can be converted without disturbing the main dwelling, with private garden areas.
Building 4: Caretaker’s house, parallel to the main dwelling:
Via an independent access gate, this single-storey longère dwelling comprises a 6-room dwelling with kitchen, toilet and bathroom with shower. In the extension, another dwelling with two rooms and a boiler room.
Building 5: Garages:
To the right of the property’s entrance driveway, this small dwelling serves as a garage with two enclosed spaces and 4 open spaces in a more recent dwelling. Adjoining, a dwelling with several rooms and toilets. Water and electricity are available.
Building 6:
With a central porch in Caen stone, it features two large wings inside, now structured into several showrooms. Its solid structure and unoverlooked location in the park make it ideal for several personal or professional projects.

This vast, elegant complex would be ideal for professional use, for offices or a tourism project. The buildings are in good condition, with water and electricity available in each. However, the use of these buildings can be decided on a case-by-case basis, depending on the future you wish to give them.
A real “coup de coeur” for this rare location in a protected environment.
