a 17th century manor house and its converted barn
On the edge of Normandy, in a landscape composed of meadows, irregular-shaped fields separated by hedges and ditches as well as forests, between springs and streams, grassland and pastureland.
On the outskirts of one of the region’s typical little villages, near to an outstanding church, dominating the surrounding countryside.
A traditional rural house constructed from brick and slate.
Just a few minutes from a large market town, less than an hour from beaches, the main regional towns and an airport. Less than two hours from the French capital.
The setting is extremely peaceful.
It was then divided into two independent sections, standing side by side, but separated by a high brick wall.
The actual farm, with the house and the outbuildings, is laid out around a square courtyard.
The manor house and the barn, facing one another from the two ends of the courtyard, are built at right angles to the separating wall.
On the outskirts of the village, a little country lane runs alongside the rear facade of the barn, extended by a brick wall, featuring large wrought iron gates, set between two pillars. Another semi-circular arched opening is closed by a small gate, identical in shape.
This property looks out over a wide, wooded garden, laid to lawn.
A wide barn. Opposite, glimpsed through the foliage of the trees, the long facade of the manor house.
The grounds are bordered by fencing, separating them from the neighbouring pastureland. Further away, woods.
A wide passageway between the house and the fence leads to the rear of the property.
A vast terrace, laid out on a slightly lower level than the house, dominates the area. Opposite, a few trees and shrubs, bocage countryside, streams and verdant valleys, followed by forest.
Surrounded by exceptional vegetation in a rare landscape, this is a delightful place to live, in a particularly pleasant, bucolic setting, steeped in tranquillity.
In the vicinity of verdant, picturesque countryside, amidst valleys and woods as well as irregular-shaped fields separated by hedges and ditches, with greatly appealing assets, rural monuments as well as plain and simple authenticity.
An ideal location that is not only near to the sea and several towns, but also at a reasonable distance from Paris.
In a delightful village, in the heart of natural, verdant countryside, a very old house, whose owner has preserved all of its character and authenticity. An outbuilding skilfully converted into a guest house.
A property that we very much enjoyed visiting.
