A highly original, 19th century Anglo-Norman manor house in 4,000 m² of wooded parklands in Normandy.
Although the French capital is 115 km away via the A13 motorway, the slip road for which is 13 km away, Rouen is but 20 km away. The nearest town with all school and administrative infrastructures as well as all shops is 4 km away. An SNCF train station is about 10 km away. The renowned Champ-de-Bataille golf course is 17 km way. A large weekly market is held in the town of Neubourg 14 km away.
Once off the motorway, the fragrances of Normandy's countryside are noticeable along the little winding roads. This property is reached 15 minutes later, just after a peaceful village. In its verdant setting, it is virtually concealed and can only be seen from inside its tall entrance gates.
4,000 m² of attractively wooded, walled parklands, notably featuring a majestic cedar of Lebanon and spring flowers, comprise a robust building, with Anglo-Norman architecture, reached via a gravel driveway, flanked by lawns. One of the perimeter walls adjoins a 14th century collegiate church.
A small outbuilding stands near to the manor house.
