The manor house
This manor house was constructed in three successive stages between the 15th and the 17th centuries. The oldest known lord of this manor was Robert-de-Courson, who accompanied William the Conqueror during his invasion of England in 1066. Various families succeeded one another until Jean-de-Neufville inherited the property in 1437, following his marriage. His son Ancelot built the half-timbered manor house which was extended by Thomas-de-Neufville. In the second half of the 17th century, Nicolas-Houlley undertook another set of works, extending it southwards and adjoining a long wing, at right angles to the rear, to be used as outbuildings.
This manor house, constructed entirely from half-timbering, its roof covered with small tiles, is a long, rectangular building, the upstairs of which slightly overhangs on springers. Apart from the obvious diagonal ties, the half-timbering is predominantly arranged vertically. Fragmented tile fills the gaps between the beams. The eastern gable, formed by a thick stone wall, is the vestige of an earlier building that could date back to the 13th century. The rear facade of the manor house is flanked by a polygonal stairway tower, covered with chestnut wood weatherboarding. A gable roof covers the bedroom at the top of this turret.
The medieval tower
On the east side of the manor house stands a medieval, round, stone tower, topped with small roof tiles. Completely renovated, it comprises two round rooms with parquet flooring.
The traditional, long farmhouse
This fully renovated, traditional, long farmhouse comprises:
- three guest suites, with a small lounge, an Italian style bathroom and a separate toilet,
- a laundry room,
- a storage room,
- all extended by two garages (fitted with a repair pit) able to accommodate four cars and closed by two remote-controlled doors,
- and the pool machine room.
The caretaker’s cottage
This cottage is laid out in a wing set at right angles to the rear of the manor house. It comprises a kitchen-dining room, a lounge, a bedroom and a bathroom.
The large farm shed
This 600 m² farm shed stands on a grassy plot independent of the parklands. It was redone in 2016 and comprises a closed workshop for large pieces of equipment and a vast surface area used for storage purposes.
The swimming pool
This 12x5 m, south-facing swimming pool is heated by a heat pump. Set back from and to the right of the traditional, long farmhouse, it has a solar safety cover and is near to the orchard surrounding the property.
Between the half-timbering, fragmented tile is set in lime mortar, giving an impression of fast paint strokes. The stylistic unity between the manor house and the outbuildings, characteristic of the Auge region, is enhanced by the steep roofs that provide a protective aura. With its chestnut wood weatherboarding and its eyebrow dormer, the stairway tower can but catch the visitor’s eye. The full renovation works carried out 2006 in no way altered the authenticity which appears to have been spared by the centuries. The round tower keeps a watch over stereotyped countryside. The inside is steeped in age-old, warm, well-adjusted features. These premises would be ideal for a hotel and catering activity on this vast estate where horses are likely to be as happy as its residents.
