France/New York City one-year apartment exchange

Spend a year in a château in the French countryside. Ernest Sanson, a great architect of the 19th and 20th centuries, designed château Rivaulde in 1902. Photos attached include the architect's blueprint.

This is one of the many privately owned apartments inside château Rivaulde, located in the heart of Sologne - Loir et Cher. Only 90 minutes from Paris by train. Ideally situated on the second floor walkup. A private garden in the back of the château leads down to the Sauldre river and on to an equestrian park. Hunting and golf nearby. The great room has a panoramic view onto the back garden, parquet flooring and an original fireplace. It comes with a fully equiped kitchen, renovated bathroom and separate toilet, 1 bedroom and 2 single private guest bedrooms, both with low ceilings overlook the great room. Free parking. Very quiet. Possibility of having access to an apartment in the center of Paris for a few weekends or longer throughout the year.

About Me
I am American and have been living in France for about 20 years. My passion is film and writing screenplays. My husband runs a computer engineering and software business. We live in Paris (in the Marais) and spend many weekends and vacations with our 6-year old son at our apartment in the countryside. It would be an ideal place to stay for a poet, writer or researcher as the quiet, panoramic view provides inspiration and a sense of well-being. We are looking to spend a school year in the United States, preferably New York City's Upper West Side.
