Castle Clécy (or Castle Boho-No!)

Posted on Sun, 3 Sep 2023 by KiM

This 19th century château is located in Calvados (Normandy region), and originally, the building consisted solely of the large tower dating from the 17th century and used as a hunting lodge. The second part was completed in 1869. The property is set in more than two hectares of partly wooded parkland, with a heated 11 m x 5 m swimming pool near the manor house. The property has three entrances, each with its own wooden or wrought iron gates, and storage buildings. 450m² of living space with 7 bedrooms and an attic floor that has yet to be renovated. The property also has 2 luxury “gites” (holiday rental home) within the wooded area.
A classic French château that is really breathtaking, though I am horrified the current owners decided a boho vibe was the way to go, and included cheap Ikea lighting (and string lights in the kitchen? really?), Ikea units in the kitchen and what looks like faux wood laminate? engineered? flooring. Praying for this poor beautiful home that the next owners do it justice. For sale for 1,690,000 € via Sotheby’s.
