A beautifully restored 17th century French chateau is now on the market for $3 million. Elegantly situated on 42 acres of sprawling verdant gardens, the lavish 6,400-square-foot histric Normandy residence is located just 56 miles outside of Paris, France in the tranquil and picturesque French countryside.
The gated compound features lush gardens and manicured lawns as well as the main house with 16 bedrooms (eight with en-suite bathrooms) and three self-contained studios, each complete with a kitchenette. Intricate detailing, hardwood floors, plush drapes and luxurious furnishings help the historic property retain its regal glamour. There are three other structures on the well-manicured grounds: a 1,100-square-foot caretaker’s house, 3,200-square-foot outbuilding, and a 13th century chapel that is beautifully decorated. The outdoor gardens are spacious enough to play host to parties and al fresco dining. Guests who like to stay fit will find the full-size tennis court to be a nice treat.
Over the last five years, the castle (including the facade and the roof) has been meticulously restored to its former glory. This includes full refurbishment of the paint and ground floor. The main residence houses features a vast array of spacious rooms with immaculate furnishings, original fireplaces, French glass-panelled windows, high ceilings, and luxurious parquet flooring. All of the details of the chateau tell the tale of majestic elegance, expertly preserved in time. The main kitchen has been renovated and upgraded to meet the needs of any respectable food critic and there is a separate wine cellar for the true sommelier.
