The origins of this castle date back to 1830. Built solidly in brick, the first castellans gave the building a resolutely Mediterranean style with a flat roof, terraces, balconies and a light-colored rendering. Since then, the weather conditions in Normandy have encouraged the owners to cover it with a discreet tiled roof.
On two sides of the park, pretty brick and flint walls guarantee the property's discretion and confidentiality. Past the wrought iron gate, the visitor enters the shade of tall trees: linden trees, elms, beeches ... The mansion appears in the light, with, on the front, its French garden composed of boxwood geometric spaces, extended by an alley of Italian cypresses.
On the other three sides, the English gardens surround it in a collection of varied and resistant plant massifs, guaranteeing a green decoration all the year round. The walk in the park's alleys is a pure moment of happiness and peace. The water features are frequented by many ornamental birds, including white swans from Poland. Powered by a deep and very old well over one hundred and twenty meters deep, they stay in water whatever the season.
A large porch leads to the first central living room, with wooden floor broken staff, woodwork and high molded ceilings. On each side, a dining room and a large living room have magnificent fireplaces in which a wood fire crackles during the winter. Continuing in the vast library, a distant view towards the plain of the Pays de Caux is offered through a large bay window. In this series of rooms, many guests can be comfortably welcomed during beautiful receptions.
The room on the ground floor is decorated with a very elaborate flooring, really exceptional. The bathroom deserves a renovation in accordance with the standards of our time. Close to the delightful service entrance on bow window, the office and the kitchen are functional.
In the center, the monumental staircase leads to the floor where the rooms and bathrooms will meet the needs of a large family. By the staircase of service, an activity of rooms of hosts can be envisaged in all independence.
Near the Alabaster Coast, two hours from Paris, in a village in the Pays de Caux where our Norman ancestors settled to prosper before conquering England, this character property somewhat atypical is centered in the middle of a chic and elegant park, ensuring a long lasting exceptional environment. Its charm has not escaped Maurice Blanc who cited it in many of his books, including the "hollow needle".
