Normandy – A superb Louis XIII style manor house.
Exclusivity - This beautiful property is in a leafy countryside setting close to immense forests just over 100 km from Paris in the Eure department. Constructed in 1630 in a pure Louis XIII architectural style, the stone and brick built property benefits from numerous windows and features slate tiles, dormer windows and brick chimneys. Originally built as a hunting lodge for Gaston d’Orléans, the ensemble was remodeled in the 18th and 19th centuries and has recently been entirely refitted. It is in a perfect state of maintenance. Entirely enclosed, the 6 hectares of meticulously maintained mature grounds feature a drive lined with bicentennial lime trees, formal French gardens and a Japanese water garden. Renowned for its remarkable equestrian and cultural activities, the neighbouring market town benefits from a rail link to Paris Saint-Lazare station.

After the Hundred Years War, Normandy rebuilt itself and went through an era of prosperity. In the first half of the XVIth century, the countryside got filled with mansions, and prosperity modified the landscape of cities. The great men of the era built magnificent Renaissance-style private homes. In the XIXth century, Normandy played a significant role in the worlds of art and literature: Claude Monet, in 1872, painted his “Impression Sunrise” during a stay in the Havre; and this region also became the cradle of prominent writers of the XIXth century, such as Guy de Maupassant and Gustave Flaubert.
