A little country lane provides access to the various entrances to this property, composed of two adjoining groups of buildings.

The second comprises an old chapel, which separates two other courtyards, and its outbuildings. Various gardens and other natural areas are spread out around these two groups.

The manor house

This manor house was constructed at the beginning of the 18th century on the foundations of an old priory dating back to the 12th century. It is built of stone and dressed freestone. It spans a ground floor, a first floor and a second floor under the slopes of the slate roof featuring roof dormers and oculi, enhanced with triangular and curved pediments. The front door is topped with ogee ornamentation flanking a small window. All the facade openings are arched. Both windows set on either side of the door are decorated with pilasters and a curved pediment supported on the entablature. The window framing, the quoins, the cornice and the roof dormers are made of freestone.

Ground floor
The entrance hall leads, on one side, to a lounge and, on the other, to a dining room with an adjoining kitchen. All these rooms have terracotta floor tiles, French ceilings and freestone fireplaces, enhanced with moulding in the lounge and the dining room. The latter features two cupboards with oak wood doors. The arched openings between these various rooms have freestone framing. The entrance hall also houses one stairway providing access to a cellar and another leading upstairs. The latter, featuring two quarter-turning flights with intermediate landings, is made of slate and freestone. The end wall of the entrance hall is completely glazed. A back stairway goes from the kitchen up to the first floor.
First floor
The landing leads, on one side, to two adjoining bedrooms and their shower room with a toilet and, straight on, to a landing room. Said room opens, on one side, into a hall area providing access to two bedrooms, one of which has a freestone fireplace, and, on the other, into a hall area leading to a toilet, a shower room and a bathroom. This landing room also provides access to a corridor, leading to a bedroom with its shower room and toilet. This last bedroom has a freestone fireplace. It can also be reached via the stairway that goes upstairs from the kitchen. This level has terracotta floor tiles throughout and most of the rooms have French ceilings. The majority of the doorways are arched.
Second floor
The stairway goes up to a landing providing access to a large bedroom with a dressing room, a shower room, a toilet and a vast bathroom. All the beams in the roofing framework are exposed.

The old chapel

This Romanesque style chapel is constructed from freestone. Having recently undergone major restoration works, it is currently used as accommodation with a large reception room, a kitchen, a lounge, a toilet and, upstairs, a studio flat. The underside of its chancel arch is adorned with frescoes, dating from the 12th century and illustrating the calendar of the months of the year.

The outbuildings

Laid out around the manor house are an old barn, a large covered area, outbuildings in use as a linen room and a study as well as a caretaker’s cottage spanning approx. 110 m². The latter comprises a living room, a kitchen and three bedrooms with a shower room.
Two small buildings near to the old chapel are used for storage purposes.
There are various sheds in the wooded section of the garden.

The garden

The garden comprises several sections including a poplar grove, wooded lawns surrounding the main buildings, a swimming pool near to the manor house, a lake with two islets, one of which can be reached via two bridges, a meadow, a tennis court and, lastly, a wood.

Our opinion

The first success to credit to the passing of time and the renovation works is the unity of style, with its soberness and elegance, between the outside and the inside. Freestone takes pride of place. Construction has been governed by the good taste and sense of balance existing in the region. Harmony reigns throughout this group of buildings, even the gardens feature all of nature’s charms. These premises are ideal for all kinds of projects especially as they are in pristine condition courtesy of meticulous maintenance. The 12th century has left discreet frescoes representing the months of the year in the old chapel, which augurs well for the slow passing and excellent quality of the seasons here.
