      Ref.4003 : Late 13th C. listed manor in Normandy.
      It is in the heart of the Pays d'Auge, on the edge of a small town of 270 inhabitants, that an astonishing estate with a fortified appearance has been standing for nearly 10 centuries, built in a dominant position on one of the most influential rivers in the Calvados department.
      Nestled in the shelter of its high walls and its multiple outbuildings, the main dwelling finds to the East all the charm and the benefits of a wooded park nicely arranged, rich in light and concerned with preserving pleasant views.
      Heir to a recognized mystical past, this property calls for contemplation and gives off real feelings of well-being, with a certain obligation to be accepted as the custodian of a mission.... that of one day passing on the torch again.
      The daily life and its numerous requirements, benefits from the proximity of a small dynamic city very close, the cities of Caen and Lisieux ensuring all the motorway, railroad, maritime or airport connections.
      The Pays d'Auge is a first class tourist area from which this property has perfectly taken advantage of through quality rental developments without denaturing its remarkable architecture.
      A past ....a reality ....a dream ....each one will appreciate if it can invite itself in the history.

      The estate is arranged around an asymmetrical main courtyard separated from the neighboring street by a carriage gate and a pedestrian gate, comprising a main building attached over the centuries to three sections of outbuildings arranged at right angles. To the north of the building, a harmonious projecting tower breaks the massive and imposing aspect of the main façade. To the south-west, an elegant junction of buildings was made in the 19th century, in the form of a polygonal turret with a pyramidal roof forming a corner lantern.
      The building is composed of three levels, built of limestone in various shades, with flat tile roofs and octagonal chimneys.
      The eastern facade, which opens onto the park, was considerably altered in the 19th century to improve living conditions. It has a central entrance that looks like a gallery, topped by a terrace and a discreet pediment. "From one century to another" could be the appropriate definition for this fully atypical place.

      With an estimated living space of 650sqm in the main part (1170sqm with the rental), this dwelling is distributed as follows:
      On the first floor: imposing entrance hall on the east facade with departure of a wooden staircase with balusters and access to the tower containing the spiral staircase. Floor with cabochons/woodwork/faux leather of Cordoba. Monumental fireplace with masonry heater.
      On the right side modernized living room (kitchen) with monumental fireplace. Back kitchen and wine cellar.
      On the left side a large living room with monumental fireplace / floor with cabochons and exposed beams and a library with herringbone parquet / fireplace with stove / stained glass. Access to the gites.
      Beautiful ceiling heights at 3.75m.
      Half floor: long corridor leading to 3 bedrooms (1 with shower room), library, corridor, bathroom, independent toilets.
      On the second floor: long corridor leading to 2 bedrooms and a small apartment (kitchen/bedroom: shower room/wc).
      Second floor: long corridor leading to 5 bedrooms and a landing.
      Attic on the whole (cob) with parts of framework in the shape of boat hull inverted.
      Most of the floors, walls and ceilings have been decorated and embellished by the artist's hands and the hostess' talent.

      The outbuildings include:

      North side: Workshop / 2 courtyards used as garages / double garages / summer kitchen.

      West side: former showroom and double barns / attics on the whole.

      South side: artist's studio in cathedral form with office, mezzanine and small living space (kitchen, living room, toilet); 2 large show rooms (135 and 48sqm).

      Set of 2 double garages and boiler room to follow.

      GITES AND APARTMENTS : fitted out on the south side, 7 apartments on 3 levels, from 32 to 85sqm. Fuel and/or electric heating. Good insulation.
      In addition, 2 gites have just been built on the first floor in continuity and direct access to the house if necessary. They have private gardens and access to a large parking lot.
      No opposite and no nuisance come to disturb the wing dedicated to the renting.

      The land is divided between the main courtyard of about 1500sqm and the park , very slightly sloping to die at the foot of the Dives.
      Beautiful trees, some of them centuries old (plane tree, Fresnes, chestnut tree, sequoia, cedar of Lebanon, lime tree, conifers) shade vast meadows interspersed with streams and various canals that several bridges with unexpected shapes and materials span without worry.
      Flowers and shrubs color the green landscape...
      Everything is designed for rest and meditation in the shade of the secret gardens that line the park while keeping a distant eye on the property or the beautiful local church of the 13th century.
      High stone walls exclude any vis-à-vis, ensure total security and allow these places to preserve what they hold most dear, their tranquility.
      The whole represents a land entity of about 7.41 acres (3 ha) without any easement.
