The manor house
The manor house, fiefdom of Ronfeugerai, belonged to the Saint-Bômer family, liege subjects of the Count of Harcourt. It was one of the first descendants that gave it its name: the “Fief Enguerrand”. It changed hands several times in accordance with the various allegiances of its owners during the One Hundred Years War as well as the Wars of Religion.
It is composed of the stately home, a first continuing extension set slightly back and a second, with a bread oven, set at right angles at the back. The gable roofs are covered with tiles. The walls are constructed from rows of limestone quarry blocks. The corners of the walls are composed of dressed granite stone, alternately laid lengthwise and end on. The same technique was used to frame the doors and mullioned windows.
Inside, the construction materials are exposed: exposed stone walls, ceilings featuring oak wood beams and joists, terracotta floor tiles. The fireplaces are an integral part of the walls, their centre is partially dressed stone and partially quarry stone blocks, lintels are made of stone or wood. The double hearth fireplace in the main living room also supports the fireplace in the main bedroom above it, courtesy of a curved dressed stone chimney breast. They extend on to the floor courtesy of an exterior hearthstone, either made of stone or small, diagonally laid bricks.
Constructed a century later, the “gendarmerie” is so-called as it once housed the guardsmen protecting the fiefdom. It comprises a house, with a tower set at right angles, featuring round and vertical loop-holes. An outside stone stairway, set perpendicular to the middle of the house, provides access via two entrance doors, separated by three steps. The left one opens into a kitchen whilst the one on the right-hand side opens into a lounge. The walls feature exposed stone, topped with exposed ceiling beams and joists whilst the roofing framework enhances the lounge. Large white stone tiles cover the floors throughout.
There is, of course, a legend stating that a tunnel links this property to the little medieval town nearby. Visitors do not need to use a great deal of imagination to be drawn to the very special charm of this property, dating from the Middle-Ages or the first Renaissance period: it exudes a blend of severe plainness and deep compassion. Modern-day home comforts have been discreetly installed here such that stone takes pride of place courtesy of the history and the sober beauty in which it is steeped. Finally the large number of autonomous areas, the large reception room, the swimming pool and the wooden terrace surrounding it, exude enormous potential. The local area, known as Swiss Normandy, with its rocks, its steep slopes and its forests, is more than worthy of its name.
