Built in 1882, this superb building was originally a house with about twenty windows and a carriage entrance. Around 1920, this house was enlarged and transformed into a castle with more than 80 windows and a carriage entrance. The work would have been carried out by the architect Marcel Odin.

Abandoned since the end of the 1970s by its last owner. He does not want to sell it but wants to keep it as it is. The castle is gradually deteriorating it seems irreversibly.

The last owner, an Iranian engineer living between France and the United States is said to have abandoned the castle following a quarrel with his neighbor who was none other than the former owner.

The site is potentially dangerous and access to it is prohibited. It is partly « guarded » by the inhabitants of the neighboring farm and the maintenance of the park (the lawns) is carried out by a flock of sheep from the same farm.

Why would you let this beautiful castle be ruined anymore it should be preserved and brought back to its original beauty. The state or their federal government should seize this property and rehab it and make it into a museum from its era… Eminant domain and i am sure their government has the legal know how to seize tgis property and rebuild it or i should say restore it i am sure there are not that many elaborate castles from that period still standing and this one should be saved it does not look like it is too far passed in order to save it maybe someone should start a petition in order for their government to save this castle…

This house has some amazing and beautiful features that should be preserved for historical significance. It is a serious shame that at least parts of the structure cannot be preserved or restored.
