This impressive castle of 620 m² on each of three storeys, is beautifully situated in a splendid park of 3 ha 66ca. It is built round a courtyard and boasts a tower several centuries old.
The property has belonged to the same family for 400 years.
Unique property in an unique situation offering many possibilities due to its preserved original features. Constructed around a courtyard, the castle’s tower is at the angle of the two wings, and under it is a vaulted cellar. There are two inhabited floors and a loft.
A large gateway leads into the courtyard, off which several doors lead into different rooms. A small terrace or stone balcony leads into the entrance hall with a monumental staircase and a magnificent fireplace, as well as stained-glass windows bearing the arms of the family who own it. The hall is open up to the second storey, which ensures that it is well-lit. On one side are a drawing-room, a vaulted billiard room and the main reception-room. On the other side are the dining-room, a cellar, a wine-cellar and the very large old kitchen. On the other side of the entrance door is the Orangery: which includes a large staircase, a kitchen and another dining-room. Beside the Orangery are a double garage and the former stables with saddler and store-cellar.
Four staircases lead up to the first floor, the main one being that which leads off from the entrance hall. This floor has eleven bedrooms, two bathrooms, several WCs and several dressing-rooms. An impressive balcony offers a magnificent view over the park.
On the upper floor of the stables are a hayloft and a staff-room. There are several other rooms with original wallpaper and marble fireplaces.
This is occupied by an enormous loft, whose beams and roof have recently been replaced.
This is under the tower, is vaulted and with a stone staircase.
Two large garages open on to the courtyard and are part of the main building.
Entirely re-built a few years ago.
The surrounding 5-hectare park contains ancient trees and four wells. A stream runs by the castle.
There is a total of 15 ha (36 acres approximately) of meadow and grazing land let out to local farmers.
