Description

Once off the motorway, the fragrances of Normandy’s countryside are noticeable along the little winding roads. This property is reached 15 minutes later, just after a peaceful village. In its verdant setting, it is virtually concealed and can only be seen from inside its tall entrance gates.
4,000 m² of attractively wooded, walled parklands, notably featuring a majestic cedar of Lebanon and spring flowers, comprise a robust building, with Anglo-Norman architecture, reached via a gravel driveway, flanked by lawns. One of the perimeter walls adjoins a 14th century collegiate church.
A small outbuilding stands near to the manor house.

The 19th Anglo-Norman manor house

This elegant building is reminiscent of a seaside villa. Constructed in 1893, it spans four levels, one of which is a large basement.
Its roof, topping the stone and flint facades and spanning various heights, is covered with old tiles. The manor house’s numerous openings include tall, hip-roofed, hanging roof dormers. The small-paned windows are sometimes adorned with wooden railings.


Ground floor
The rooms, with fireplaces, are large and bright. Their high ceilings are sometimes adorned with moulding. A vast entrance hall, with a mosaic floor, provides access to a room that could be used as a study or a bedroom, a kitchen, still in its original condition and featuring attractive wall tiles, and a back kitchen, with Vieux-Rouen style wall tiles. On the other side of the vestibule are a large lounge-dining room, a billiard’s table and a toilet. The floors are covered with cement tiles or herringbone pattern, oak wood parquet flooring.
The stairway, with its steps and railings leading upstairs, is entirely made of wood. Stained glass windows let in light that illuminates the ground floor.
The kitchen, the lounge and the billiards’ room open on to the outside via French windows.

First floor
The stairway is also illuminated via a roof atrium. This level comprises five bedrooms with numerous storage areas, three bathrooms, two toilets and two small rooms.
There is herringbone pattern, oak wood parquet flooring throughout.

Second floor
The layout on this level is the same as that on the floor below. It has three bedrooms, fitted with large cupboards, a small room and a turret as well as an attic which could be converted.
Basement
The cellars span approx. two-thirds of the ground surface area of the building.

The outbuildings

The outbuildings, reflecting the style of the main residence, comprise several rooms, used for storing equipment and garden tools.

Our opinion

With turrets, gables and roof dormers, the 19th century architect created a collection of roofs without compromising the unity of the building. Full use has been made here of the Anglo-Norman style glossary and the result is highly original. This manor house is a luxurious country home. Or, given its location near to small and large towns, it could become a main residence for a much-envied family.
