The manor house
This manor house and it outbuildings, the origin of which dates back to the 17th century, takes the form of a long building with a south-facing main facade. Standing on the highest of the terraced ground, all the buildings dominate a small, wide valley with a stream running through its hollow. The opposing hillside constitutes forest whilst that to the south provides access to the vegetable garden, the greenhouse, the orchard, the tennis court and the swimming pool via successive terracing. Long paths cross the property through plain and undergrowth, all of which is completely unoverlooked. Most of the buildings, built of stone and millstone grit with rendering in places, span two levels and are covered with roof tiles. The building facade has numerous arched openings, some of which are very large. It is adorned with many decorative features such as stone steps, terraces with balusters or wrought iron railings, a decorative mascaron on an arch keystone with the face of the reigning king as well as 16th century bas-reliefs featuring arms trophies from the demolition of the Palais-des-Tuileries. The size of some of the rooms brings a majestic air to the premises.
The caretaker’s cottage
A fully renovated, millstone flint building stands at the entrance to the property, adjoining the workshop. This caretaker’s cottage is completely self-contained.
The workshop is set up in the old stables.
The garage can take at least two cars. A door leads directly from the garage to the kitchen. A stairway, at the end of this garage, leads up to the second studio flat.
This site, right out of a pastoral poem, exudes romance.
The feeling of domination is overwhelming as the small valley, laid out in front of the building, provides an impressive panoramic view over the natural surroundings from every point of view. There is enough space both inside and outside to guarantee privacy for all residents. It has a studio bathed in light for artists, a large library for booklovers, a games room for children, a spacious kitchen for gourmet cooks, large, independent guest bedrooms for those who enjoy entertaining, a large pool for swimmers, a greenhouse for gardeners, superb alleyways for those who like walking, a forest for woodcutters and an omnipresent nature for those inclined towards contemplation.
