89099BS14 - Built in 1731, this elegant Chateau has been renovated with modern central heating, bathrooms and decorations. Close to the famous Chateau town of Balleroy and just 15 minutes from historic Bayeux makes this the perfect setting for such a fine property. - The ground floor has flagstones throughout and comprises the main reception rooms:

The large sitting room has a stone surround fireplace and full-length windows to the front and rear, with a door to the front terrace. There is also a smaller sitting room with a marble fireplace and dual aspect windows.

The dining room is dual aspect, has a marble fireplace and a door leading through to the kitchen.

The kitchen has a separate storage/utility area and a door to the back garden. The fitted units house a steel sink and dishwasher, the separate steel range cooker has an integrated extractor hood.

The 'Grand Hall' has been part renovated with new ceilings and tiled floor. The impressive limestone staircase sweeps up to the balcony floor above and is almost a metre and a half in width. The original orangery-style door and five windows face to the front.

Upstairs is a balcony floor, an open area leading to the main corridor with shower room and separate WC for guest use. The five bedrooms are accessed from the upper corridor, all face the front except one which is at the rear. This one has en-suite shower and WC, the others all have basins. The largest front bedroom has en-suite bathroom with bath and shower, WC, bidet and basin.

A second staircase leads from the entrance hall to the upper corridor, the entrance hall has a separate WC.

The 2nd floor has a small bedroom under the roof and the whole roof space has a solid concrete floor. Currently used for storage, the roof space is large enough to accommodate more bedrooms.

The roof has been replaced (mid 1970s) and a new gas central-heating system installed. There are two septic tank systems for the property, both recently fitted.

Outside there is a large field to the front and a smaller back garden area enclosed by hedges. A private parking area is situated by the front door. A stone terrace with decorative jardinieres runs the full length of the front of the building. In the grounds are two outbuildings, a single storey stone one for garden storage and a two storey stone barn with attractive arched windows. This building has a good roof and would make a wonderful gite.

Close to the famous Château town of Balleroy and just 15 minutes from historic Bayeux.

This is a rare opportunity to own such a fine piece of pre-Revolution French architecture and history. Viewing is essential to appreciate the splendour of this classic Norman Château.
