This undeniably luxurious 1,300 square meter castle from the 18th century has been put on the market by Catherine Deneuve. The spectacular residence was much loved by the actress, who tailored the property to her interests. Evidence of this can be seen in the fabulous rose gardens that Catherine cared to personally. The ex-companion of Mastrianni spent her weekends and holidays enjoying the well-kept gardens, perfect for getting away from life’s chaos and relaxing in peace.
The castle is located at Guainville, almost 75km from Paris in a tranquil village made up of just over 700 residents. The Château de Primard consists of ten bedrooms, the same number of bathrooms and various living rooms and entertainment spaces.
The 50 square meter kitchen is found on the ground floor with an attached living room. The master suite is located on the first floor, covering a total of 65 square meters. The second floor houses numerous bedrooms, two of which are children’s rooms.
There are an impressive 25 spaces dedicated to leisure and pastimes. Luxuries include an extensive library, a 70 square meter sauna, relaxation Zen like spaces, an outdoor swimming pool and an 18 hectare garden. The property has the space and elegance to cater for any mood.
The park is a particularly special element of the luxury abode. Redesigned by Jacques Wirtz, the Belgian landscape architect that François Mitterrand had landscape the green spaces of Eliseo. The asking price for this one of a kind lavish French castle is just under 4 million euro, at 3.9 million.
There is an element of mystery as to why the actress has chosen to sell such an outstanding property. Perhaps Catherine no longer needs such expansive space now that her children have settled elsewhere and she spends the majority of her time in her luxury apartment in Paris, at Saint-Suplice. Needless to say that living in an exclusive castle, once owned by a woman of class like Catherine Deneuve, and situated in such a calm and tranquil place, would be a dream come true for many.
