The main building, the stately north wing, is rectangular and divi ded by three pavilions, one in the middle and one at each end. Two pavilion towers flank the south facade. Double wooden doors in the centre have a dressed stone architrave featuring pilasters and a pediment bearing a coat-of-arms. The outline and profile bring that of one of the Loire chateaux to mind. The different roofs include pavilion roofs with flat tiles for the dovecote and the towers, hip roofs with flat tiles for the three pavilions and long-sloped roofs with Roman tiles for the rest of the buildings.
