A 17th century mansion, a shop and a house in Argentan, in the French department of Orne.
The third largest town in the Orne, Argentan is situated 188 km from Paris via the N12 and 15 minutes from Falaise. The property stands in a lively street in the Saint-Germain district, close to the listed church of the same name and a stone's throw from the Château des Ducs (Dukes' Castle), which was once the residence of Eleanor of Aquitaine. All the shops and public services are within walking distance, as is the SNCF railway station, which links to the capital in 1 hour 45 minutes. Crossed by the River Orne and land of horses with many stud farms, this tourist region is home to some of the most emblematic sites of Norman heritage.
The property is surrounded by houses and private mansions, some of which are listed. Built in the 19th century, the L-shaped mansion spans two stories, one of which is in the roofspace. An imposing carriage porch opens onto a square courtyard, where a stone staircase topped by a canopy leads to the cellars. There is one flat on each floor. A door at the foot of the staircase provides access to the adjoining blue house with a first floor and an attic, which opens onto a courtyard facing the flats. A shop extends over the ground floor of the mansion, with a shopfront on the street side.
Hôtel du Bois de Belhôtel This mansion owes its name to Charles Alexandre du Bois de Belhôtel, who bought it in 1760. The large wooden porch is surrounded by limestone blocks and supported by two buttresses on the courtyard side. A staircase in one of the wings, set at right angles to the building, leads to the flats. The lime-rendered coursed rubble masonry walls feature corner quoins. A carved cornice enhances the upper part of the building just below the slate roof. Two arched dormers with columns and raised pediments protrude from the roof. A chimera not unlike a gargoyle juts out from one of the dormer windows. The frames of the windows on the courtyard side form an irregular in-and-out bond. The street facade has large small-paned windows. The flatsLocated on the first and second floors, they are accessed from the courtyard by winding stairs with wide flagstone steps. A small shed has been fitted under the staircase. The 79 m² flats have the same layout, they comprise two bedrooms on the courtyard side, a bathroom or shower room, a kitchen and a living room with a fireplace on the street side. The exposed beams enhance the high ceilings. On the second floor, a door hides open stairs leading to the attic. A small room on the landing adjoins this flat. The shopCurrently rented out, the shop of approx. 70 m² with high ceilings stretches over the entire ground floor of the building. Facing a lively street in this shopping district, the shop window takes up the entire facade.
