A listed, 13th & 14th century manor house with outbuildings
and 47 ha of land 100 km from Paris in Normandy

Location

100 km from the French capital, 50 km from Rouen and 35 km from Beauvais with its airport and numerous low-cost flights. Neufchâtel-en-Bray, Forges-les-Eaux and their markets are 30 km away. Narrow winding roads make their way through this verdant countryside with its undulating landscape of fields and forests.

Description

A country lane leads out of the village to this manor house, standing robustly in its dominant position looking down on the estate’s fields. Miscellaneous outbuildings, some of which await restoration, surround the building.

The manor house

This building was granted French Historic Monument listing in 1921. It was originally a stronghold house, constructed in the 13th century and then modified in the following century. This building has been more or less in the same state for almost 500 years. Its stone facades feature some brick framing around arched openings. Rectangular in shape and spanning three levels, it is flanked by four impressive watch-turrets with robust corbelling and candlesnuffer roofs. The roof on the main building is covered with local tiles. The mullioned windows on the second level are crowned with ogival lintels that date from before Renaissance style architecture.


Ground floor
This first level comprises a living room, where a monumental fireplace takes pride of place, a lounge and two other living rooms, as well as a kitchen, awaiting refurbishment, and a toilet. A stairway and a lift provide access to the second level.
First floor
This level includes four bedrooms, two bathrooms with toilets and a shower room. Two of these bedrooms have a bathroom installed in a watch-turret, the top of which is reached via a stone stairway. Some bedrooms still have their indoor wooden shutters.
Cellar
All the cellars are vaulted.
Attic
This level, under its superb inverted hull roofing framework, could be converted.

The outbuildings

The outbuildings comprise two barns, one of which spans 400 m², a stable, a pigsty and a large shed where carriages were once kept. The roofs are covered with slate, some of them await restoration.

Our opinion

Having ardently protected its site for five hundred years, this manor house gives the impression of being impervious to the turbulence of modern-day life. With its impressive watch-turrets providing a particularly appealing silhouette, it appears to insist on keeping one foot in the Middle-Ages: the wonderful architectural and decorative features that have been preserved could encourage purists to restore all the original nobility to the rooms which have been little changed over the years. Despite its intimidating appearance, this property is of a reasonable size and the main building, together with the outbuildings, could be used for all kinds of family or professional projects with financing from government grants related to its listed status. It would also be possible to purchase less land if so required. The surrounding countryside, synonymous with peace and quiet, is ideal for those wanting to return to their roots.
