This extraordinary estate from 1870 with its 'castle-like' Manor House is located in a small hamlet with only three other, very fine neighbours.
The huge, fully renovated Manor House is in excellent condition and the authentic features like the stone walls, exposed beams, doors, windows, stairs, fireplaces and floors have been preserved. Everything is done with perfection and the beautiful decoration and warm atmosphere truly make this a dream house that very rarely comes on the market.

Besides the main house, there are a farmhouse, a cottage and three barns.
Part of the Manor House is currently run as 4-star B&B; the farmhouse and cottage with fully equipped kitchens are successfully rented out.
The estate measures 20.25 hectares and consists of a park, meadows, an enormous forest and borders the river 'Taurion'. The meadows and barns make the place very suitable for holding horses.

In the garden around the buildings are several terraces, a children's playground and a luxurious swimming pool.
The views over the countryside are no less than spectacular. Anyone who visits this estate will be speechless.

The total habitable surface of the Manor House is 341 m², the farmhouse is 156 m² and the cottage is 51 m².

The central heating is dual fuel (primarily wood with a tandem oil back-up system)
There are fireplaces and wood burners in each building
The roofs are insulated and the granite walls are half a meter thick

Gates and a 200 meter driveway give access to the 20.25 hectares terrain, of which 3.5 hectares is the park around the buildings, 8.85 hectares is meadow and 7.9 hectares is an impressive, mature forest.

In the garden we see:
A fenced swimming pool of 9.65 x 6 meters, heated through solar panels
A barn of 23 m², attached to the cottage, with a first floor of 29 m² (this part could be joined with the cottage to enlarge it)
A barn of 44 m² with a mezzanine of 24 m²
A barn of 81 m² with a mezzanine of 58 m², very suitable as horse stables
A garden shed of 24 m², currently used for storage and as a hen house
A dovecot that connect the buildings
A children's playground.

The park contains large trees, shrubs, flowerbeds, a vegetable garden, a 1.83 hectares orchard, several stone paved terraces and a unique cave.
The terrain borders the category 1 river the 'Taurion', with many species of fish like trout.

On the large meadow are currently 8 horses, but there is room for many more. This place is ideal for horse lovers.
The forest provides more than enough wood for the central heating system and fireplaces. Each season about 40 cubic meters is used. Much of it falls down by natural causes and all it needs is cutting and splitting.
The entire property offers great views!
