Description

Beautiful, historic manor house in the peaceful Normandy countryside on the outskirts of a small village, not far from Bernay, only two hours west of Paris and just over an hour south of Honfleur.

This classic brick, stone and timber manor house was built from the 17th through the 19th centuries. Rooms are on a grand scale, with beamed ceiling and many fireplaces.

Perfect for elegant B&B or small hotel. Eight restored bedrooms, six with modern ensuite bathrooms and two with bathrooms in the hallway; six additional unrestored bedrooms on the 2nd floor provide potential for expansion.

6.47 hectares (approximately 16 acres) of land includes landscaped gardens, ponds, specimen trees, fruit trees, swimming pool, tennis court, boules court, pastures and fields. Ideally suited for horses or other animals. Numerous outbuildings to restore include barns, a historic pigeonnaire in colombage and a caretaker's cottage (ideal for gite). Spectacular linden trees line the lane that leads to the manor house.

A wonderful, atmospheric 14th century chapel across from the property is open on special holidays. Grande Randonnee footpaths adjacent to the property wind through miles of unspoilt countryside, ideal for walking, bicycling, or horseriding.

Less than two miles from a picturesque historic village with grocery store, bakery, restaurant, cafe, antique shop, post office, chemist, and biweekly open-air market. A wonderful walk in fine weather!

Tasteful decoration, including nearly new furniture in a classic style combined with some antiques. In addition to the furnishings, all carpets, window coverings, light fixtures, and most artwork, along with all kitchen/laundry appliances, convey. Fully fitted kitchen includes dishes, glassware, pots and pans, etc.
