The manor presents nearly 400 sq.m of living space over its 3 floors. The main entrance hall has front to back access with original quarry tiled floor and an oak staircase. The kitchen is fully fitted out with tiled floor, exposed ceiling beams and direct access to the garden. A dining hall of 26 sq.m continues the theme of original quarry tiled flooring with a feature stone fireplace.
The lounge/reception room is slightly larger with herring bone oak flooring marble fireplace and ornate plaster-work. There is a smaller study with stone floor and a large fireplace with wood burner. Completing the ground floor we have a bathroom, wc, laundry, utility room and office.
On the first floor are 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, salon with fireplace. The top floor houses a beautiful loft apartment of around 135 sq.m with lounge, open kitchen, 2 bedrooms, bathroom and wc.
The manor has gas central heating, mains drainage and is in excellent condition. Underneath the manor is a large vaulted wine cellar.
The “longere” in traditional Normandy style with exposed structural beams over 2 floors. The building needs renovating/finishing. It is split into two lodges: the first has a lounge with open kitchen, bathroom and bedroom and then 2 further bedrooms and a bathroom above. The second lodge has a lounge with open kitchen, wc and 2 bedrooms and bathroom above. Both lodgings have underfloor heating and double glazing with a private garden.
Within the grounds there's a large garage (5 – 6 cars), gate house and swimming pool (needs redoing). There are roughly 4 hectares of paddock/Prairie and 4 hectares of woodland and together with the gardens and parking areas provide roughly 9 hectares in total.
THE SETTING / LOCATION
The property has an elevated position above the lane and its own separate access drive. It is located a short drive from a pretty village with tourist attractions and amenities, 15 minutes from Rouen and 1h40 from Paris. An ideal family home with the possibility of equestrian and tourist activities on site and beyond.
The Manor is nicely presented and with some TLC the longere would provide extra accommodation for guests.
