Surprisingly, the gardens for this beautiful and impressive home are not formal but laid out for pleasure, sitting, playing or just relaxing.
To the rear is a wooded area that was formally the paddock when the stables housed 5 horses - this is a major equestrian area set near the lakes and dunes of the Baie de l’Authie.
The house is expertly designed to provide for both formal entertaining and family comfort. Entering the raised ground floor from the sweeping stone steps into a tiled hall, to the left are the magnificent, high ceilinged "Grand Salon" and formal dining room, with views over the south facing terrace and front garden. These impressive central reception rooms adjoin a more intimate family dining room which opens onto a wide north-facing balcony, more shaded, secluded and cool in the summer than the south-facing terrace. This trio of reception spaces, designed for lavish entertaining, link the west and east wings with their extensive family accommodation. On this level, the west wing contains two large bedrooms, one with en suite bathroom, the other with a compact shower room. A separate WC serves both.
GARDEN LEVEL …
There is direct access by a stairway down to the integral 6 car garage and to another guest bedroom at garden level, also with a private shower room. The east wing comprises, on the ground floor, a kitchen/breakfast room, a library/media room and a separate WC.
FIRST FLOOR …
From the entrance hall stairs up to the first floor lead to a landing, two double bedrooms, a shower room with WC, and the master bedroom suite with its own spectacular bathroom/WC, while a matching flight of stairs down gives access to the garden level office again, laundry room, boiler room, storage room, gym, wine cellar and garage.
SELF CONTAINED APARTMENT …
In addition at garden level there is a self contained staff or guest apartment with lounge, double bedroom and en suite bathroom/WC. This apartment is accessible either from the house or via its own entrance from the west garden, and has been providing the current owners with an income of around €9,000 a year from holiday lettings.
This is a very large home in excellent structural and decorative order that needs to be viewed to appreciate its quality and potential. Viewings are by appointment only with the agent.
