A 16th century, listed manor house with its parklands and its French formal garden
in the middle of a small historic town 10 minutes from Deauville

Location

90 minutes from Paris via the A13 motorway.
10 minutes from Deauville and Trouville with their attractive but different beaches.
10 minutes’ walk from the SNCF train station in the town centre with its links to Paris-Saint-Lazare.
In one of the most sought-after streets in this town’s historic district, synonymous with a pleasant way of life and authenticity, a site not to be missed by the region’s tourists.

Description

This property, standing in the town and yet out of sight of onlookers, only reveals its external facade to the street.
The tall gates linking the manor house to the outbuilding open into a lawned area in the U-shape formed by the buildings belonging to the property.
A French formal garden, with its trimmed boxwood bushes and its cross-shaped layout, separates the residence from the wooded, fully enclosed parklands which extend the property and enable residents to walk through undergrowth in the town centre.
The outbuilding’s external facade looks out over one of the three rivers flowing through the town as it borders the length of the garden.

The manor house

Dating from the 16th century and listed as a French Historic Monument, this 2-storey manor house is set out in an L-shape with half-timbered facades and lime-rendered tile fragment masonry filler.
The west gable wall is covered with a natural slate cladding.
The facade on the road side is built of red brick or glazed and half-timbering, like the row of corbelling on the ground floor.
The roof covered with flat terracotta tiles features impressive brick chimney stacks. Roof dormers with overhanging eaves illuminate the attic space which could be converted.
The different sized facades on the garden side are built of half-timbering, brick and dressed stone, but are topped with a continuous roof. The half-timbering enhancing the ceiling height of the ground floor is typical of local architecture.


Ground floor
The inside of the manor house, with its ceilings featuring joists and main beams resting on the massive uprights of the framework, also visible outside on the half-timbered facades, illustrates 16th century construction methods as in an open book.
Dressed stone, contrasting with the warmth of wood, forms the end wall of the lounges where the marks of stonecutters’ tools are still clearly visible.
The terracotta tile floors bear the patina of time.
All the rooms have walls featuring half-timbering and dressed stone as well as massive fireplaces and terracotta tile floors, with the exception of one lounge which has floor-to-ceiling panelling, herringbone pattern parquet flooring and a Louis XV style fireplace.
The main building that runs alongside the street comprises a vast study-library, a long storage space which houses the boiler as well as a dining room with its separate kitchen, opening near to the entrance gates.
A small dining room overlooks the garden.
The stairway, with its stone steps, is in the entrance hall. It leads up to the attic via the first floor with its bedrooms and forms a link with the wing which comprises four adjoining lounges.

First floor
The main stairway landing provides access to five bedrooms and shower rooms.
The main building comprises three luminous bedrooms.
The first, which opens via double doors, is the size of a master bedroom. It has a plaster ceiling, wallpapered walls and strip pattern, solid wood parquet flooring. A fireplace faces the bedhead and the room has a very deep, large cupboard as well as a separate toilet with a window.
The second bedroom has wooden panelling, in which are set concealed doors opening into a wardrobe and a bathroom. It also has a Louis XIV stone fireplace with a trumeau as well as solid wood parquet flooring.
The corridor provides access to a shower room with a toilet and a view over the garden, before reaching a third bedroom, backing on to the second one.
The first floor landing also leads to a corridor providing access to two bedrooms, a bathroom and a laundry room, all laid out above the adjoining lounges in the wing of the manor house overlooking the garden.
One of the bedrooms, featuring light-coloured wooden panelling, includes a fireplace and an alcove.
The last room is a master bedroom with exposed joists in a high ceiling. Its fireplace with a mirror trumeau is set between two cupboards with double, varnished doors that conceal a water supply point and steps leading to the bathroom.
On the opposing side are similar tall varnished doors.
Following the bathroom and the laundry room is a space, currently not in use, with a concealed stairway that leads down to the small conservatory.

Attic
The attic space, reached via the main stairway, has a monumental roofing framework which houses a surface area awaiting conversion. This spacious area is illuminated via roof dormers with overhanging eaves.

The outbuilding

These old cowsheds or stables are flanked by the old caretaker’s 2-storey cottage that awaits full restoration works.


Outbuilding
This building comprises a storeroom with a wine cellar, all in a row with a woodshed, a workshop as well as a garage and ends in a small dwelling. The attic covers the entire workshop up to the wine cellar. Reached via the roof dormers, it could provide a spacious area once converted.
Caretaker’s accommodation
The ground floor comprises a living room illuminated via two windows overlooking the street and the river. There are two bedrooms upstairs. This building, in need of major conversion works, could be extended by making use of the attic.

The dovecote

Although this building has been completely restored, it is not in use. It is built of red bricks with two wooden doors featuring holes and is topped with a terracotta flat tile gable roof.
The pediment on the main facade is embossed with floral decoration.

The parklands

The parklands exude three very different atmospheres. In the foreground, the lawn enhances the manor house and its outbuilding. Then, between two red brick walls, a wrought iron barrier opens into a French formal garden, the boxwood-lined alleyways of which are laid out in a cross between the lawn parterres enhanced with perennial plants and apple trees. At the end of the property is a majestic red oak tree.
The parklands are completely enclosed and nuisance-free.

Our opinion

This residence, cited as the oldest in the town, abounds in charm. Once through the entrance door, visitors are immediately taken by the moving authenticity of the atmosphere reigning within the four walls: for instance, the terracotta tile floors marked by the patina of time must have witnessed all the shoes made by man from basic foot coverings to trainers. The diversity of the nooks and crannies of the garden, like those of the manor house, will surprise visitors, especially as its architecture and its original materials have been scrupulously preserved by its current owners who love the house for what it has always been. Protection of the building via French Historic Monument listing will make it possible for their successors to continue in this vein and to convert, in turn, their corner of the countryside in this town, pleasant all year round, near and yet far from the hustle and bustle of its seaside resort neighbours.
