GENERAL DESCRIPTION
Built in 1731, this elegant Chateau has been renovated with modern heating, bathrooms and decorations and was run as a successful B&B accommodation business.

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 city of Caen is just an 18 miles drive.
The D-Day Landing Beaches are nearby, Battle for Normandy took place all over the area, with St-Lo, Villers Bocage and Tilly sur Seulles nearby.

DESCRIPTION OF THE 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.

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.

Outside there is a large field to the front and a smaller back garden area enclosed by hedges.
