This manor house nestles in a totally unspoilt setting 130 km from Paris, in the Perche Regional Nature Park, 20 minutes from Nogent-le-Rotrou and 10 minutes from La-Loupe (train stations). The property is surrounded by Natura-2000 classified lakes where migrating birds stopover. The few 19th century buildings, constituting a small hamlet with the manor house in its centre, are proof of just how peaceful this area is. The town, under whose jurisdiction the land comes, is founded on the base of a feudal motte. Originally Romanesque in style, the town church, with a listed high altar, was redesigned in the 13th, 16th and 19th centuries.
The manor house
Almost all the features of this manor house have been preserved and for those that have been repaired, certain floors for example, the works were carried out in line with age-old practices using traditional materials. The ceilings are high and some of the heavy exposed beams are adorned with notches.
Unfortunately, the building is going to ruin. A creeper having reached the roof, a leak became apparent on the first floor ceiling this winter. The fact that the windows do not close and that there is no heating has caused a great deal of damp to set in on the ground floor.
This building, bearing the date 1841 on the entrance lintel, was most certainly used for farming or animal rearing purposes. Contrary to the manor house, the redesigning works carried out here, although not finished, were major as a 7x4 m, indoor swimming pool made of concrete was installed here. The structure is sound, the liner and, perhaps, the filtration system need replacing.
The entrance provides access, right, to the walkway leading to the manor house, straight on, to a garage and, left, to two windowless rooms, a storage room and two changing rooms. The main room, at the end of the corridor, is the one housing the swimming pool. Works have been started to install a sauna and a mezzanine structure which is meant to house a study above the pool.
The parklands, predominantly laid out behind the manor house, are planted with trees on its three main sides, with the notable exception of the outbuilding, one of the walls of which adjoins the neighbouring garden, without a hedge or a screen having been installed.
The parklands are greatly enhanced by the wide rectangular moat. The property could be accessed at one end via a gate which is not currently used.
This manor house has come valiantly down through more than five centuries, still with its original floors, fireplaces and ceilings. But it is currently in need of attention. Damp and leaks are causing damage to this five hundred year old building. The current owners have started preservation works, adding kitchen and bathroom facilities which are a major step towards modern-day home comforts. They will find successors because the manor house is worth saving. Its authenticity, its stateliness and its charm are already a promise of compensation. The pleasure of living in an age-old home can be added to the satisfaction of having contributed to the preservation of heritage.
