An 18th century, thatched cottage, a farm building and outbuildings, 15 minutes from the banks of the river Orne and 50 minutes from the sea in the Calvados department.
This property is in a village, crossed by an old Roman way. Pain-de-Sucre, Rochers-des-Parcs, Route-des-Crêtes, L'Eminence, Boucle-du-Hom, all mountains in this part of Normandy constituting an unusual setting for numerous hiking trails: Norman Switzerland. A train station, with 2-hour links to Paris-Montparnasse, is 14 km away. Slip roads for the A88 motorway can be reached in 30 minutes. Caen-Carpiquet airport and the beaches along the “Côte Fleurie” (Coast of Flowers) are a 20-minute drive away.
Wrought iron gates open on to a wide, interior courtyard, surrounded by buildings. The thatched cottage, spanning almost 150 m², is flanked by outbuildings. Set at right angles, a press-house, a pigsty and a cowshed, spanning a total of approx. 200 m², border the narrow lane to the rear. Large farm buildings, where several vehicles can be parked, extend the old stables adjoining the house. Opposite, a stone house, spanning approx. 50 m², and its forge separate a vast vegetable garden from the garden. Behind the house, communicating with the courtyard, a garden separated by a hedge of poplar trees extends into an orchard. A stone wall borders part of the farm building.
The thatched cottageConstructed in the early 18th century from shale stone, this thatched cottage spans three levels, one of which is attic space. The thatched roof, which also covers a roof dormer, former access to the hayloft, gives optimum, natural insulation. Wide, small-paned windows, on the courtyard and garden sides, let in copious amounts of light.
Ground floor
Double doors, partially glazed, enhanced with wrought iron and topped with a canopy, give access from the courtyard to a vestibule. It leads, on one side, to a kitchen, with an eating area, a fireplace with an oak wood lintel and a wood-fired cooker. On the other side, a lounge, with a marble fireplace and a large, built-in bookshelf unit, is separated from the vestibule by half-timbering. A wide dressing room precedes a bathroom and toilet, illuminated by a window. A door at the end of the corridor opens on to an orchard on the garden side.
First floor
A quarter-turning wooden stairway goes up to a long corridor that provides access to the upstairs rooms. Two of the three bedrooms, spanning approx. 25, 15 and 12 m², have a wash-hand basin. A child’s bedroom and a study complete this level. A door in the corridor opens on to a narrow flight of steps going up to the attic space.
The garden is divided into two sections. A vegetable garden, spanning almost 200 m² and an orchard, spanning approx. 2000 m². Climbing roses, aligned hydrangeas and decoratively trimmed bushes. Facing a masonry, shale stone well, an old granite stone “gadage” (a circular channel housing a grinding stone drawn by a horse or a donkey) is now home to koi carp.
Farmhouse building
The mechanism once used for extracting juice from apples to produce cider is still in place in the cider-making press-house, spanning almost 100 m², as are the barrels. A 50 m² boiler room and a shower room adjoin the press-house. A wide, wooden, spiral stairway goes up to the attic space. Cowsheds, a pigsty and lastly a haybarn are set out at right angles to the press-house. Each building, with oak wood lintels above the openings and a thatched roof, still has all of its original features. Stables, with carved wood stalls, could accommodate three horses. They are extended by a second haybarn and its “charretterie”, where horse-driven carriages were once kept, able to take several cars.
Facing the stables, a house and its adjoining garage, spanning almost 50 m², are constructed from shale stone and topped …
