, CALVADOS lower-normandy FR


2½ hours from Paris’ city gates and 40 minutes from Caen. Mézidon train station is 15 minutes away and that of Lisieux is 25 minutes away. Both towns have shops, but the nearest are only 5 minutes away in Saint-Pierre-sur-Dives, a medium-sized, lively town with markets and age-old second-hand shops as well as schools, doctors and a cinema. In a small hamlet, facing a horizon composed of fields for as far as the eye can see.


In the heart of the Auge region, an area that has always been much appreciated not only for its undulating landscapes, its narrow streams, its forests and its multi-coloured fields but also for its horse stud farms and its manor houses.
This property, in an unspoilt village and on a protected site around the church, stands on slightly sloping land bathed in sunlight. It has an unobstructed panoramic view over the entire region.
The manor house and its listed outbuildings are set around a square courtyard, together with its garden. Behind the manor house are landscaped parklands and a large orchard planted with AOC apple trees.

The 17th century manor house

The history of the manor house is not very clear and it is not known whether it was built on the site of a former castle or whether its building materials came from another manor house that had been destroyed.
However, it is known that the main building was built in the 17th century and the wings in the 18th century.
The dwelling dominated a farmyard where the service quarters were aligned in two groups: the stable and the cowshed; the winepress and the “charreterie” where carriages were kept. The farmyard is now a magnificent, flower-filled, leisure garden and the service quarters have been partly converted. The central building has to be extended to incorporate a stairway leading to the bedrooms and the left wing.
The construction has classic Normandy architecture. The half-timbering is filled with fragments of tiles. The facade of the left wing is built of brick. The entire building features wide, tall, semi-circular arched windows. The roof, covered with small local tiles, is flanked with four brick chimney stacks and features hipped roof dormers with projecting eaves along the front facade.

Ground floor
The entrance hall with a cloak room leads, straight on, to a lounge with a Caen stone fireplace. It opens on to a shower room, the kitchen and the dining room which are in the right wing. To the right of the entrance, a small lounge opens into a music room with a Regency period, grey and white chessboard pattern marble floor; in the left wing is a study with wainscoting and an 18th century ceiling as well as a reception room with a fireplace; the floors feature old terracotta tiles.
First floor
In the right wing, a stairway by the kitchen door leads to a landing, a bathroom and a large bedroom. The entrance stairway leads to a gallery that leads, in turn, to two bedrooms with a bathroom. In the left wing are a lounge, a vestibule, three bedrooms and a bathroom.
The solid wood parquet flooring is enhanced with painted or wallpapered walls and exposed ceiling joists.
The attic is reached via the main stairway. It spans the full surface area of the manor and could be converted. It has two staff bedrooms and a toilet.

The outbuildings

The 4 buildings making up the service quarters are built of half-timbering and brick whilst the lower sections are built of stone.
Their local flat tile roofs feature roof dormers.
They are used as a linen room, a garage, a workshop, a machine room for the heating system and each has its own attic space.
A 17th century wash house with a small tiled roof is supplied with run-off rainwater from around the manor house.

Our opinion

The square courtyard, the half-timbered service quarters, the apple trees and the view over the Auge countryside comprise a superb property that is ideally suited to a harmonious way of life and horse enthusiasts could reinstate its horse stud farm status. Despite its age, the manor house is in pristine condition and recent works mean that no unpleasant surprises await the new owners. The large amount of living space and the layout of the rooms make a wonderful reception area, even though it is also possible to find a more intimate atmosphere in the alcoves formed by the old wainscoting. The pretty garden and the vast lawns are proof of the fertility of these much envied lands.
