Glory of the past

The manor's croundwork dates back to the 15th century

Near Deauville, this 17th century manor, built on 15th century plantings, was restored under its current owners, courtesy of Monuments Historiquessanctioned craftsmen. “This property has a typical Norman architecture, with flawless design and vertical half-timbering on the facade, stresses Pierre Flore. Parts of the manor and its basement were built by the dukes of Harcourt.” Said basement houses the 90-sq m former English-style armoury, which opens on the garden, featuring black and white flint walls and stone floors. Providing close to 750 sq m of living space, the manor has a bright 90-sq m wideclearance living room on the ground floor, with two stone fireplaces. An entrance, a cloakroom, a small living room, a dining room accommodating 16 guests, a kitchen, six bedrooms and a Master room round out the amenities. Various vintage elements have been retained. Facing southwest, the manor stands in the heart of a 12-ha park with beds of hydrangea and rhododendron, an outdoor pool, a 250-sq m outbuilding and stalls in perfect condition.
